Im heading back to Waikiki this week and thought I'd share and get some new ideas things to do which may not be on the classic 'to-do list' around Waikiki.
Last trip I did with my lovely wife, we were heading over to the Marina so that we could get on one of those para-sailing adventures, which was in itself a ot of fun.
The thing I remember most though was 'The Trolley' ride to and from the marina, which takes you half way around the city on it's way, clanging it's bell from time to time... langwardly making it's way along the Ala Wai Canal, across McCully Street, past the Ala Moana Shopping Centre ... along the coast-side towards the west of the city and into the Marina.
I remember the soft Hawaiian breeze mixed with the scent of wild flowers through the huge polished timber windows and the smiling driver..I rememeber lifting my feet, free of my flip-flops (we call them thongs in Australia), and out of the window slghtly so they could feel that gorgeous breeze. I sat back, totally relaxed and utterly surrendered to that time and place. It was more special, that trolley ride, than many other things I'd done in a 10 day trip full of activity.
I'm heading back tomorrow, alone this time, and I intend to grab a good book, get on that trolley and (if they allow it) just sit there in the afternoon, reading my book whilst trying not to be distracted by all of the beautiful sights and smells.
I'd love to hear recommendations for experiences you've had which cost you nothing yet made your holiday special.
Thanks in advance!
