Leo started a new design job a few months back. After a few months, I could tell it was a much better fit for him than his previous ones. Towards the end of the year he told me he had some exciting news that he learned at work. When we both got home that night, he told me that his job had done so well that year that they were going to treat everyone and their SO’s to a trip to Hawaii. HAWAII! I SCREAMED. I couldn’t believe it. Hawaii has always been my favorite place and this time I’d get to go with Leo for FREE. I was so excited.
We stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village which is walking distance to Whaler’s Village. The weather was so perfect. Not hot, not cold. Apparently March is a lovely time to go! The first two days we were there, Leo and his coworkers spent a few hours working together in the afternoon so he and I spent the evenings out walking to Whaler’s getting gelato and doing some shopping.
Saturday and Sunday were the most fun for the both of us. We went on a snorkeling tour which took us to a little cove full of fish where we flew our drone and got some amazing shots! It also took us to Turtle Town where we saw a couple turtles swimming out and about in the clear blue waters. Sunday was supposed to be our adventure day but since we couldn’t get ahold of a car, we spent the day on First street where we ate, flew the drone, and later went back to get a massage (our first ones ever!) at the Monroe Spa at the hotel.
I’m also so happy I got the chance to meet all of Leo’s coworkers and finally put faces to names! It was a short but sweet little trip and I’m so extremely grateful I got the opportunity to tag along.
