Hawaii---not just for tourists.

4:59 PM


   Well we're back from our (belated) 5th anniversary trip to Hawaii, and let me tell you......it was AMAZING.  I mean, before we took this trip, in my mind Hawaii always seemed like one of those places that was probably a little overrated.  Tropical island paradise, palm trees, beaches, pineapples, blah blah blah.  It just sounded so tourist-y and cliche, and all of that jazz.

  But when I discovered The Traveling Triplets and their documentation of their many adventures in Hawaii, it just shattered all of my pre-conceived notions of what Hawaii may or may not be like.  I mean, let's just say that Hawaii (or at least our experience of the island) could not begin to be overrated.   A lot of it depends on where you stay and what you do, much like any vacation would. But this trip......seriously the closest thing to paradise I've ever experienced.  Take that, Oregonians! (since everyone born here believes that Oregon is the Promised Land)

   Unfortunately, I have no time at all today to even begin blogging about it.  But if you're at all interested in our many Hawaiian adventures, then tune back in later for one of (probably too many) vacation updates.

  1. O my word. Oregon is so not paradise when compared to Hawaii! But being the transplants we are I guess we can form our own secret club! :D

    I cant wait to hear what you did and where you went. We went to Kauai for our honeymoon. Lo.ved. it.
    2 years later dh's work gave him a vaca to Maui. Eww. was not so cool. Or at least t so "us".

  2. I've always thought that Hawaii seems like a dream come true, like the closest thing to Heaven, even though I've never been there. :) I can't wait to see more of your pictures!

  3. I can't wait for the rest of this series...

  4. I really want to go to Hawaii but my husband has that blah, blah, blah touristy view of it. Looking forward to your blog posts to convince him otherwise.

  5. sounds so amazing! so happy for y'all that you were able to go! looking forward to the rest of the pictures...=)

  6. I felt that blah, blah, blah way before we had our anniversary in Mexico...I was not a resort type person...or so I thought. My husband surprised me for our 10 year and I did not want to go! Silly wife! ;)
    But when we got down there...oh it was SO wonderful. I can just imagine how great Hawaii is! and to be alone with your husband...how fabulous!!!
    Looking forward to more about your trip.
