We woke up at 4am after spending the night in Ewa so that we could reach Wahiawa for breakfast to fuel our early start.
It’s fascinating seeing the ‘tourist’ side of Hawaii in the form of the Waikiki strip with jam-packed all-inclusive resorts and beaches but I’m so glad I had the opportunity to see Hawaii for what it really is.
With the busiest day planned ahead, we pulled on running shoes to tackle some of Oahu’s stunning hiking trails, a change from the flip flops and sandals we had been adorning the past few days.
We spent our 3rd day beach-hopping through some of Oahu’s beaches – some of the most stunning in the world.
We woke up before dawn to make the most out of our second day on the island, filling our souls with fresh air, sunshine, beaches, views and of course, more acai bowls.
I spent a week staying with a friend on the gorgeous island of Oahu, the third largest in the cluster that makes up the state of Hawaii.
