Aloha! Hawaii, we had been dreaming of it for a while and here we are. The discovery of the island of Oahu starts in Honolulu with a walk to Chinatown on the first day.
Laure and I spent the day at Waimea Valley, a sacred place to the Hawaian natives. Located near the windward side of the north shore of oahu, this short hike includes a 1,875 acre botanical garden filled with native plants, rebuilt huts/cooking houses and several endangered birds. The 3/4 mile trail ends with a beautiful waterfall that tourists are encouraged to swim under once they arrive.
