Show Us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spot!

Today is Show Us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spot- over at Kelly's Korner!

Although Josh and I haven't traveled out of the U.S. together yet, we still have some favorite places we like to go. And of course Hawaii would have to be my all time favorite so far!

Two summers ago Josh and I went to O'ahu for 10 days and had SO much fun! I want to go back really bad, but we are currently saving to go to Europe hopefully next summer :)

Here are some pictures from our trip!

Here is a picture right before we landed!

Literally the FIRST thing we did when we got to our hotel was change out of our traveling clothes and left to go hike Diamond Head! Although I'm glad we got the hike out of the way first, we were kinda sore the next few days haha
Everyday we would do a different activity around the island, and every afternoon when we would get back to the hotel we would go out to the beach and swim/nap by the ocean. Joshy made this for me :)
We went to Pearl Harbor of course, it was amazing, I am so glad I got to see it.
We also went to Hanauma Bay and did some snorkeling! It was a lot of fun. We got underwater cameras, and I Josh and I swam pretty much next to each other but I was ahead a bit, so every fish I took a picture of... 2 seconds later Josh took a picture of it too haha. So all of our pictures were pretty much the same.
The Sunset from our balcony on the 18th floor!
We also went on a really cool submarine ride! We had to take a boat out onto the ocean where we offloaded into the submarines.

Joshy on the submarine, he is holding a piece of glass that is the thickness of the windows.

The Submarine from the loading boat
And who could forget the gangsta' taxi that took us back to the airport hahaha
We also went shopping, on a circle island tour, visited the Dole Plantation, went to the swap meet, and ate at a bunch of amazing restaurants! All in all we had a great trip and did a LOT of stuff! I can't wait to go back again, I love Hawaii!!! :)

You are so brave for going in a submarine. They totally freak me out. Your trip looks like so much fun.

Europe next summer huh? That will be awesome.
