Correna’s trip to Oahu

June 9th, 2013

Aloha, everyone!

Once again I am on a FAM in June.  I guess this is my month to travel. Today I am blogging to you from the Ocean House restaurant at the Outrigger Wakkiki Reef.

This is my first time to Oahu and I am still trying to get a feel for the island. We have been extremely busy as there is so much to see and do that we are trying to cram in as much as possible.  Right now though I am just relaxing and having my breakfast.  Here is a photo from my chair 🙂

The last few days have been crazy busy, when we arrived we were taken to the Ko Olina area of Oahu.  This is a newer development and is very resort-ish. Pretty sure that isn’t a word but that is what I would call it.  The Disney Aulaini is out in Ko Olina along with the Marriott.  Very nice and laid back, you most definitely do not have to go off to Maui if you are looking for R&R as you can do this all on Oahu.

Just a bit of information for people planning on coming and staying in Waikiki, the hotels right now are sold out and are constantly at a 98% capacity!  As well the excursions are usually sold out so please book these in advance.

On our first official day in Oahu we went swimming with the dolphins and then we did a trail ride. Still sunburnt from the dolphin swim and yes, my butt is still sore from the horse.  The last time I was on a horse must have been over 30 years ago and then I most definitely was not riding down a mountain!!!  We did have a couple of people who had some problems, so please make sure you do wear the helmets that are supplied and make sure you always have your insurance information with you.

Well it is time for me to go shopping as we do have a free hour this morning. I’ll be talking to you soon!
