Upon arriving in Honolulu, Jeremy picks us up from the airport. His place isn't as clean as I was hoping it would be, but it can do for a bit. That night Nikki and I encountered cockroaches and were super afraid. We kept screaming and jumping frantically on the mattress we were sleeping on with Bob Marley playing on our ipod system in the background.
Amazing feeling being on this island and overwhelmed with the grand weather and nature. I feel so blessed to be here.
Then, luckily the next night, we ended up with Scott and Daniel. Scott is by far the most generous person we've come across on Oahu. We ended up getting drinks at a local bar with the guys. Then we go back to their house and it's clean, neat, and comfortable. I took a short hot shower. It felt so good. We slept in Scott's room while he slept in his sister's room and Daniel took the couch. Scott lives in Ewa Beach. Cool place, far from the city. The next two days we take out Scott's truck and took a drive around the whole island of Oahu.
We ended up visiting the Dole Plantation, a historical town called Hale'iwa, Ali'i Beach Park, Emukai Beach Park, Waimea, Polynesian Cultural Center [closed the day we went], Pounders Beach, Waikiki, Oahu north shore.
