After moving to Vancouver, my eyes opened up to the different travel possibilities (and cheaper flight patterns) that are available from the west coast! Even though flights to Hawaii are still about 6 hours- or more if you have a layover in San Francisco like I did- the prices were so reasonable I had to jump on board. Decided to travel to Honolulu, on the island of Oahu in Hawaii!
My friend Dana (shout out- our first big trip together!) and I flew into Honolulu, the capital of Oahu, but stayed in Waikiki Beach.
