Dole Plantation, Oahu 2016

One of the biggest tourist attractions in Oahu (and there are many!) is the Dole Plantation. We really wanted to do this. We jumped in the rental and headed up there.



Once there, we got some food to eat, but then started to explore. We first did the train ride.


Next we went to the maze. That was really fun and enjoyable.


Misc pix from there.




Ko Olina Lagoon, Oahu 2016

The next day after my training, we decided to go for a nice ride. I drove past Ewa Beach (where my friends lived) and headed along the coast again. I saw all these big hotels and decided to go there and take pictures.

I came up on a parking lot with a lagoon. This was Ko Olina Lagoon 4, and so we all got out and the boys played on the beach again! I also walked a bit further and checked out the other lagoons.


Even though it was evening, the weather was nice and the water was warm! I loved it…




Honolulu Hawaii 2016

I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii. It is one of those places you always where you hear the natural beauty and culture is amazing. I was given an opportunity to visit Hawaii through my work. I had to go to Honolulu for a week long training. We had bought new machines at my hospital and so Philips (our vendor) offered week long training session, paid hotel with breakfast and lunch vouchers and free paid travel.

This would only cover me (as I brought my family) and the training sessions were from 8am to 4pm… so pretty much all day.

Lodging was offered at the Waikiki Beach Marriot Resort, which was right by the beach!!!

I loved it!
