Guided tour of southern Oahu

Today was the day we got to meet Kim and Rob! I think we all clicked from the first second and the talk (mostly lead by Kim) went smooth (just kidding Kim)!

We finally got leis and we gave them some typical Norwegian gifts – like milk chocolate (best in the world of course) – miniature bottles of aqua vitae, lovers mittens and a book about Norway (in English).

Our first start was the farmers market at Kapiolani Community College. Kim got JO to taste some abalone and no, he didn’t like it. But this place had much to offer when talking about food. The Loco Moco is a burger with egg on top of a burger and rice. It’s a full meal that will get you going and keep you going for quite some time.

We left the farmers market and headed for Sandy Beach Park and then to the “blow hole” – guess you can understand what that is. We stopped at Makapuu Beach Park – and saw the Bunny island (have no idea what it’s called that – looked like a dead bunny…).

We stopped for a small snack and something to drink at the Kalapawai Cafe & Deli. Kim then drove the looong way up to Mount Tantalus which has this really pretty view of Honolulu. We then ended the guided tour at Pu’u Ualaka’a State Park where we took some pics of us and more pics of the city.

We ended a very nice day with a trip to our hotel – to show Kim and Rob the view and then we had dinner and cake at Cheesecake Factory! We’re looking forward to tomorrow Kim!

A big MAHALO for today!
