During my short visit on Oahu, I managed to sneak in a couple venture days. I can definitely say that I made the most of my stay, which was only about 5 days. I didn’t even bother telling some people that I was stopping in for a little bit since I’ll be back at the end of the month.
After a solid breakfast at Sweet E’s Cafe off of Kapahulu, a couple of us set out to find this treehouse we’ve been seeing all over the social media. Coming to find out it was near my favorite area to hike in and I didn’t even know it.
From the parking area to the tree house, it took us about 15ish minutes to get there. The structure itself is a little bit questionable, swaying with the strong winds, and my friend nearly lost his footing as one of the boards came up, when he stepped on it. Thankfully he was okay, but we did lose a couple of slippers, which were easily retrieved after our veg out mode in the tree.
We didn’t get as much as time up there because there were some rain showers coming in fast. As you can see from the pictures, the view is definitely one of those dime a dozen. Going during the week definitely had its advantages since it’s quickly becoming a hotspot. Nothing like an overrun adventure spot.
Once the rain finally arrived we made our way back to the parking area where we saw the perfect spot to set up some hammocks. Trees that are just perfectly aligned, pretty neat how they were planted that way. That area became the ultimate veg spot because once those hammocks were up, it would have been so easy to take a little snooze. I think I need to invest in a hammock ASAP.
I’ve been so grateful for the friends that I’ve made on Oahu especially the ones that are venture seekers like myself. I’m usually on ocean adventures with these two, but they were nice enough to switch things up because I couldn’t be in direct sunlight or in the ocean for a couple of weeks (new tattoo and all; here).
Now that me and A know where we’re off to next on our crazy life adventure, we have a much better idea of when we’ll officially be off the island. Things are definitely settling in a lot more and I’ll have to do another round of farewells not long after A returns from deployment. It’s a bittersweet moment, but I know in my heart that I’ll return to the islands again.
Hope you enjoyed my little adventure post on this beautiful Happy Aloha Friday !
Note: as you can tell, I’m being a bit vague about the location because I don’t intend to reveal it all. I rarely ask for locations of certain spots because I find it to be more of a satisfying adventure when you do your own research. Google is your best friend, I definitely encourage everyone to use it when you’re figuring out your next adventure.
