Hawaii is one of my favorite destinations and I was beyond happy that my husband decided to gift me a vacation to Oahu for my 30th birthday. We really wanted a relaxed week, lay out, eat delicious and fresh seafood and just enjoy each others company. We stayed at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel directly located at the famous Waikiki Beach. Even though we arrived pretty early on that day, we were super jet lagged. It is a 12+ hour journey from New York City to Honolulu and after a delayed flight we only wanted to relax and kept it super mellow. We enjoyed lunch by the beach followed by a cocktail under palm trees and a fresh Ahi Bowl later that day. The evening was basically the same and it was wonderful to just follow your feelings instead of a tight schedule. We started our second day pretty early and went for a long walk around the Waikiki Beach area, stopped by a cute coffee shop for breakfast and walked back to our hotel.
