Though it has been many years since I've been to Hawaii, I'll never forget how much fun I had. Granted, I was seven years old. But even then it left quite an impression on me.
My mother and I bought some pretty Hawaiian dresses and put flowers in our hair. I remember we were selected from the audience to be personally serenaded by Don Ho. Tiny Bubbles of all things. Back then, that was a huge deal. I also received regular rounds of Shirly Temples with tons of cherries throughout our two week vacation. And I ate to my heart's content. I really enjoyed the sweet Hawaiian bread.
I'm grateful for the pictures I have to remind me of my time there. While I didn't appreciate all of the sites at that age, I can appreciate them now. Such a beautiful island. Definitely a place to visit again someday.
Hawaii is indeed paradise, and couples will have no shortage of finding activities to do with one another. From watching hula dancers, to strolling along the beach by day or by sunset, seeing the bamboo forest, heading out in a kayak, stargazing, exploring the volcanoes, surfing, or escaping behind a waterfall.
All throughout April I'll be posting about Couple Getaways as part of the A-Z Challenge. I hope you'll stop by for the next destination! No passport necessary ;)
