Highlights from Hawaii

From the title you can clearly see that my boyfriend and I went to Hawaii on our vacation!
The specific island we went to was Kauai, also known as The Garden Isle because it is know for all of its beautiful natural sights such as waterfalls, canyons, mountains, and more.
Kauai, Hawaii is so beautiful! Below you will see a timeline of all of the exciting activities we did. Enjoy!

Friday:

Our first day of actual activities was very exciting. We booked a tour with Rainbow Tours to see Secret Falls. To get to the waterfall we had to kayak on the Wailua River and hike through a rainforest. Secret falls is 125 feet tall and beautiful. The journey was definitely as exciting as it sounds!

Saturday:

We were tired from the kayaking and hiking the night before but we still wanted to get out of the hotel and do something fun. We went to Coconut Marketplace to explore the unique shops.

We also decided to go get a couples massage at a quaint shop called Spa by the Sea which were amazing!

Sunday:

We went snorkeling at Poipu Beach! This was super scary at first because, unlike my boyfriend who is an excellent swimmer, I cannot swim at all. Luckily, our tour guide from Zodiac/Z-Tours gave me a life vest so I could snorkel properly. This was both of our first times snorkeling which was pretty exciting. It was amazing to look underwater and see all the different fish, urchins, and corals.

Monday:

Our last day in Kauai 😦 But it was still a very awesome day because I rode a horse for the first time! We went to CJM Stables where we had the chance to hop on horses and see parts of Kauai some natives have never seen. I had a lovely and very hungry horse named Dutch.
We rode our horses all over the magnificent South Shore. We rode on the beach and past gorgeous valleys and saw amazing mountain ranges. It was definitely a perfect way to end our trip!
