Paradise in the Pacific | Honolulu, Hawaii

One of my best friends got married in Hawaii! This was my first time attending a destination wedding and my first time going to Hawaii. I have been looking forward to this trip for a while because I haven’t been to the beach in a while. My last proper beach vacation was St Lucia in 2017.

Hawaii is nothing short of amazing. Sometimes I forget how much beauty is the United States. Traveling abroad is wonderful but this trip is a reminder I haven’t even seen all there is to see in my own backyard. Below are some highlights from the places I enjoyed the most.

Stay: We opted to stay at the trendy Shoreline Hotel in Waikiki, the Shoreline Hotel is a recently renovated boutique hotel a short walk from Waikiki beach. Vibrant colors are everywhere and fun wall paper covers the walls of every room.

Eat: Eggs N Things they have the best pancakes! You must try the Pineapple pancakes with coconut syrup! There are two locations on Waikiki beach, we ate both, both are amazing. The Saratoga Road location had a shorter wait time while the Kalakaua Avenue had a beautiful view of the pacific ocean.
