I Sat Beside 2 Drunk Girls On My Flight to Kona (Kona Day 1)

10:25am – I was out the door and in the car as my brother in law, Anthony, drove me to YVR airport. My flight was at 1:59pm, but I prefer arriving a little early to get through security and just settle and maybe grab a bite to eat.

Luckily, by having a Nexus card, I breezed through the security line-up quite easily. It took a total of maybe 7 minutes (?) Not long at all! I almost forgot my Toronto Blue Jays hat because I breezed through security so easily!

SWEEP ME OFF MY FEET

It’s the second to last day in Hawaii! 🙁 I’m so sad, but I couldn’t have had a better second-to-last day.

We went to The Four Seasons for lunch at The Beach Tree which was a patio restaurant that overlooks the beach that they had there.

While we were waiting for our table, I wandered over to the beach (because of course I did).IMG_0020 copy Continue reading

DIGGING UP A BODY

The next morning we went to the Kona Pub + Brewery hoping to check out there brewery tours, but unfortunately we were not able to. So instead we just ate lunch there.

I tried there sampler which was any 4 (5oz) glasses of a beer of your choice. The four that I chose were: Duke’s Blonde Ale, Big Wave Golden Ale, Hula Hef, and Lavaman Red Ale. I didn’t get the Longboard Island Lager only because I already drank that earlier in our trip, which I also enjoyed.

WATCH OUT FOR THE GREEN FLASH

We went to Cafe Pesto for lunch and I ordered a blended blue margarita and as much as I prefer it on the rocks, I thought the blended version was much better suited for the early afternoon.

EXPLORING HAWAI’I VOLCANOES

We headed out in the morning towards the volcanoes. It was a pretty scenic 2 hours or so drive.

We stopped at Punalu’u Bake Shop that sold some “sweet bread” and it was delicious. We got taro, mango, and guava. Screen Shot 2015-11-01 at 5.23.52 PM Continue reading

POOL TIME + FAILED SUNSETS

It’s my third day in Kona, and today was just a “chill day” which consisted mainly of lounging by the pool and trying and failing at taking a time-lapse of the sunset. (I’ve improved on those in the vlogs following this one. Thank god).

Here are just a few photos that I’ve snapped throughout the day:
