Aloha! I’m just back from Hawaii so this is one of those postcards you receive after the holiday maker has returned home. It was just a week in Waikiki and it included some work and play… there were swims in the famous Waikiki beach with water so warm it could have been a bath… decadent meals including one at Iron Chef’s restaurant, Morimotos … fruit smoothies and berries… a cocktail (or 3) called Ginger Kiss (think lemon meringue pie with a ginger hit)… a cocktail called Chocolate Raspberry Truffle (dessert in a glass)… lots of sweat running down your back walks… frizzy hair thanks to the humidity…. wind so strong it unbalances you and blows your hair right out of its plaits… sunshine, squalls, rain and rainbows… shopping including the best top ever from Johnny Was… early mornings and late nights with a couple of nananaps thrown in… million dollar homes that look like shacks but have views to die for… a photography tour that took us half way around the island and back… mad keen sunrise surfers… pineapple plantations as far as the eye could see… turtles bobbing about in the shallows… knock your socks off sunsets… Aloha and Mahalo 50 times a day… walks along Waikiki Marina where a friendship was struck with a friendly possibly stray black cat that kept rolling over for a belly rub… a rekindled love affair with Wholefoods (why can’t we have Wholefoods in Australia?!)…Godiva chocolate – in blocks and drizzled over fruit sticks… volcanic mountains and lush green forests. I’m so grateful for the blessings of travel, yet each trip makes me fall in love with home a little bit more. Take care, will write again soon.
May you catch a sweet sunrise or sunset today x

Beautiful photo and sounds like a once in a lifetime adventure – I would love to go to Hawaii (for the sunsets and the sea like a bath and the volcanic mountains, rather than the frizzy hair or sweaty moments!) x
Thanks Rebecca, it was pretty special. Yes the frizzy hair thing is wicked, think cartoon character with finger in the electrical socket!
Looks and sounds perfect. Would love to go. A few friends have been recently and all have raved.
It does have a lovely holiday vibe to it and is such a pretty place.
Truly paradise in other words 🙂 I was transported there for a moment, sweat down my back and all. Delicious. I can dream.
ha love it – thanks Dani x
Your holiday sounds divine. Those cocktails… My gosh. 💜
Thanks Carly! Yes I’ll be dreaming bout that Ginger Kiss 🙂
