Kauai Hawaii, Amazing trip!
If you can't already tell, Linda and I decided to Honeymoon on the island of Kauai, HI. We spent 10 days exploring, hiking, sailing, swimming, and enjoying everything the island had to offer. It was fantastic!
I thought I would share some photos with you from our trip. Neither of us had ever been to Hawaii which made the trip even more special and amazing.
Every day we made some time to hang out at a beach. There are so many beaches on Kauai to explore. Some you could swim at and some had really bad undertows which cautioned people from going in the water.
There was a hurricane cruising past the island to the East the first couple days we were there which made the waves a little larger than normal. Luckily, everything worked out fantastic and we got to do everything we wanted to.
The most interesting thing we did on this trip was go on a helicopter tour of the island. It was SO MUCH FUN! I have never been on a helicopter and this flight did not disappoint. We chose a helicopter that did not have any doors which made the flight even that much more enthralling.
The views are amazing and being as much of the island does not have roads, really the only way to see the island.
A sailing trip up the coast gave us great views of the famous Napali Coast and a fantastic steak dinner on the water. We had a lot of fun seeing dolphins, turtles, drinking beer, and talking with the other travelers.
There was a lot of fantastic hiking on the island. We were able to squeeze in an 4 mile hike up to a waterfall which was the perfect way to cool down before the hike back. Hiking along the cliffs offered breath taking views of the ocean and waves.
Coming to this island was amazing! Great views, fantastic beaches, and beautiful blue water made our honeymoon unforgettable. The mountains and lush green landscape did remind me of somewhere I traveled several years ago.
I traveled to South East Asia and the views are remarkably similar. I guess Hawaii is halfway there from the states, so makes sense... Linda's family is from Vietnam and she also couldn't believe how much the Island looks like Vietnam. Here is a picture that really looks like Asia.
The trip was great and I am already itching to go back! Okay, maybe not the same Island, but I am ready to go somewhere new.... I guess I'll get started thinking about the next vacation! Until next time....
