November break

05 Dec

Mr. K and I went on vacation this past month to Hawaii; first a week on a cruise, then a week on the Big Island. It was summertime again for us for a couple of weeks, and now it’s almost Christmas!!

Our boat: The Pride of America

Our cruise took us to Maui, Hilo, Kona, Kauai, and Honolulu; we sailed with Norwegian’s Pride of America. If anyone has food allergies and wondering what would happen on a cruise don’t worry, at the buffet the items were labelled Gluten Free, and the other restaurants had separate menus. All of the staff were super helpful and would amend things as needed.

Here are a few pictures from our vacation; everything from beaches, rainforests, volcanos, luaus, shopping, and just relaxing. Wishing I was back there already!

Kauai:

Lagoon

 Hidden Falls

In Kauai we went kayaking and then for a hike up to the hidden falls. Along the way we stopped to take a swim in a lagoon. The same lagoon where Johnny Depp filmed the 4th pirates. In the trailer below where Jack Sparrow is sitting is right beside the lagoon (although you can’t see it!) and if you go up to 2:35 you’ll see where he is swimming with the mermaids in the fountain of youth, which is the lagoon we swam in. Also along the way we passed other spots that were in Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and MASH.


Honolulu:

After our second week in Kona was over we flew back to Honolulu for another day. Thanksgiving was over and Christmas was in full swing!

    Wow. What a great joy to look at Your Hawaiian photos. I visited there twice in the 70ties. Lovely photos.
