Hawaii – Oahu & Big Island

I’m till trying to catch up on all of my blog posts. I recently returned from a wonderful trip to Hawaii. This was my second time visiting Hawaii, last time being my friend Marc’s wedding in 2016. This time I set out to explore Oahu and the Big Island.

Originally it was a solo trip for the first half, but on my flight was a beautiful woman named Myriam. Turns out she worked for the same airline (Air Canada) I was flying on and was also flying Solo because her friend had cancelled going on the trip with her. We got chatting and turns out we wanted to do similar things. She didn’t have a rental car or a ride from the airport so I offered to drive her to her hotel. We exchanged numbers and ended up meeting up the next day and ended up spending the majority of the rest of the trip together.

We travelled around Oahu for 5 days exploring the entire island, going snorkeling many times, drinking great drinks, eating great food, and visiting the very memorable Pearl Harbor site.

When it was time for me to go to the Big Island I asked Myriam what she was going to do and she said she’d come along with me to the Big Island. We travelled together on Hawaiian Airlines over to Hilo, picked up the rental car, got some groceries and proceeded to the rental house that I had booked. The house was absolutely beautiful, despite a slightly nosey host that lived above. Myriam stayed with me for a few days before we picked up my friend Krystylyn, who was going to stay for a week.

We explored around the Big Island together before it was time for Myriam to go. I dropped her off at the airport, and then spent the remaining 5 days with my friend Krystylyn. We did a ton of snorkeling, ate some wonderful food, and saw some amazing sights.

Below are some pictures from this memorable trip.
