24 hrs in Oahu.

After a 6hrs flight, from LA to Honolulu, we reached the Aloha State. Since you land in the airport you can smell that aloha spirit everywhere. Pretty much everyone is wearing a hawaiian shirt, which it makes you feel you are already livin’ Hawaii, despite you didn’t leave the airport yet.

As we where fully loaded with bags, considering we came from a month of snowboarding and winter gear, boards, boots, etc. We found this company that storages your bags. Since 9/11 airports don’t have lockers or storage available due safety reasons… so thanks god we found this company, otherwise we were screwed if we had to island hop with all that hassle.

After we rented the car we head to Waikiki, where the hotel was. I’m glad we stayed there for only one night, because Waikiki is a ‘Rio fts. Miami’. Of course its nice, because you are in Hawaii, but it doesn’t have that island vibe at all. Its more of a tourist trap.

So we left our stuff in the room, and head north to North Shore Oahu. Our friend Pachu suggest us to visit there, and it was really nice. A completely different scenery. Untamed beaches, endless waters, small island houses, wild chickens everywhere, and other vibe. We would have like to stay longer and      spend more time in the North Shore, and maybe visit some other beaches on the south shore too…. but we had only 24hs in Oahu, until our flight to Maui.

Next morning, early, before catching our flight, we went for a run on the Waikiki boardwalk and Diamond Head State Park. Totally recommend to do this earl to avoid the masses.
