Diamond Head crater is one of the most famous landmark in Honolulu and is very popular. Although I did have a hard time walking uphill, the hike is not that difficult and is even accessible by children.
We spent 3 weeks on Oahu island while in Hawaii so even if we can’t claim that we have seen all the beaches, we had time to explore a good portion of it.
Simon has been having a lot of fun with his camera since we left and today, I would like to put forward some of his pictures.
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.
Two days at the Grand Canyon… I’m looking forward to it but also a bit concerned (“I’m too young to die!”).
