I have recently come home from a whole seven days in paradise without my little family!
Agreed that taking a holiday with your friend instead of your family is not everyones idea of a relaxing holiday but it was a simple decision that my husband and I agreed on months before I returned to work earlier this year. That is, I would take time off while hubby looked after our little angel and vice versa. We both felt that it would be healthy for all of us. Trust me, I know how extremely fortunate and lucky I am to have this just work for us. As my friend mentioned on the trip – your husband is one in a million.
On the trip, we spent most of our time in Waikiki and both had so much fun finding it to be one of the best trips. During the day it would be a little time to relax then go, go, go and in the evening before dinner, I would Skype home to check in, say hi and good night to my little one.
There was so much to love about Oahu. The kind people, strong cocktails, warm weather, gorgeous beaches, blue water, green flora and never ending amount palm/coconut trees in full view. To my surprise, I found Waikiki to to be unbelievably family friendly with late sunsets, space for prams, kid friendly menus and loads of water activities to keep the little ones occupied.
Independence day happened to be our final day in Hawaii and my friend and I decided to do not much except hang around with the locals and lay under palm trees at Ala Moana Beach Park. The day ended with a fireworks spectacular which was amazing. It was the most wonderful way to top of our trip. We didn’t however look forward to our 3.45am wake up call for the flight home the next day.
Until next time.. and next time, the whole family will be going.
Thanks for reading. xxx
