Posted on October 19, 2015 in Hawaii

Hi guys! Guess what I just got back from an amazing vacation to Hawaii. I went told bed one night and told myself that I needed to just go far, far away. I decided that I should go to Honolulu. On the day of my departure I was so excited. I arrived at the airport and cold not hardly contain my excitement. I told everyone I saw that I was going on a trip to Honolulu. They seemed very unexcited, but I didn’t care I was excited for myself. I got on the planed and suddenly they told us we had to deboard because there had been a delay. I sat in that terminal worried suddenly that I wouldn’t make it to Honolulu. Finally we got on the plane and were able to take off.

We had a layover in Los Angeles and I was able to see the Hollywood sign off in the distance. Of course I took a picture and sent it to all of my friends. I felt like a little kid excited to see Santa clause. I got so excited at the thought that I had seen the Hollywood Sign. It really wasn’t something that I had ever thought about wanting to see, but being  able to see it made me really excited. After waiting at LAX for what seemed like forever I was aboard my next flight to Honolulu. I was so ready to be in the tropical sun and to have a nice relaxing vacation.

When I arrived to Honolulu I was so happy. I was also so tired. I arrived at the Shoreline Hotel located in Waikiki and it was completely beautiful. My room was absolutely beautiful. I went to bed and got some awesome rest. The first morning when I woke up it was incredibly special. Discovering the landscape made me absolutely lost my breath. From my balcony I could see the beautiful mountain in the distance and the beautiful ocean. I went to the Starbucks across the street and had a nice little breakfast. I then went straight to the beach. I am just blown away by all the amazingly beautiful landscape. It is nothing like I see at home. The sun was already well in the sky and it seemed like an endless flow of beautiful ocean water.

I go swimming and the water is absolutely perfect. I notice that as the sun moves across the sky the ocean colors changes. I go an explore the beautiful shops around my hotel and find some cute souvenirs to take back home to my team. By the time I have dinner I am beat and ready to take a nap. I sleep through the night and wake up the next morning at 7 am. My second day is great. I went to beach early and took and awesome swim. I then laid on the beach just enjoying all the beauty and peace around me. I went up to the Diamond Head crater which is an old volcano crater. It is so breathtaking. I get some food and then head back to the beach. I love the amazing weather. I could definitely get used to the beautiful scenery and perfect weather.

My third day was very busy. I booked a lot of activities at Kualoa Ranch. The bus to Kualoa Ranch left at 7 am and it took 40 minutes to get to Keneohe, the city that has the beautiful ranch. I started my day with an awesome ride on an ATV. It was the first time I have ever ridden an ATV in my life. The ride between the mountains and the beautiful mountains was beyond incredible. I’d never seen any landscape more beautiful and untouched in my entire life. After the ATV I took a small break and then headed toward my next activity. I took a short trip by boat into the middle of the famous Chinaman’s Hat and to see the sea turtles. I was so amazed by the beauty of the surroundings and the beautiful clouds in the sky. When we reach the island the view is so beautiful. There were giant sea turtles everywhere. I have a nice meal of rice with beef  and vegetables. The food tastes so amazingly fresh, better than I ever have at home. It was very delicious. On this island I did the awesome Hawaiianin horseback ride. The view was so amazing and had a beautiful panorama view. My group rode right up to the ocean. I’ve never seen any more beautiful and untouched land than I have ever seen.

I was pretty beat by the time I got back to my hotel. I had a small snack and feel asleep. I felt like I was really active, but I was starting to miss all of my amazing friends back home. I wondered if they were missing me as well. When I woke up the next morning I was going to go to the Honolulu Zoo but I decided to rest because I was so active the previous day I didn’t feel like doing another day of walking. I pick up a rental car and decided to explore all the different areas of the island. I drove around and found so many little cute stores. I spent a lot of cash, but I had a gift for all of my special friends and for my soccer kids. I thought it was really important that I took something home to all of them.

When it was time to go home I was really sad, but I was happy to know that I was getting back to my friends. Honolulu was the most amazing place I have ever been. I definitely want to go again for a longer period of time. The people are so welcoming and friendly. The landscape is breathtaking and I love swimming in those beautiful waters. This was definitely a trip of a lifetime. I don’t know if I will ever take a trip like this again, but every moment was so perfect I will definitely never forget it. If you ever have the chance to visit Honolulu then I definitely recommend you do. You will not regret it.
