Week In-stagram Review Waikiki

8 Comments 31 January 2014

Each week brings some new scenery and location for me – that’s just the way I like it. If you want to follow where I am real time – then on Friday I will post some of my Instagram photos from the current week. Some weeks I may be traveling somewhere exotic, and some weeks it may be less interesting – but it will give you a peek into my life of perpetual motion.

This week I escaped the cold winter in the mainland US and landed in Hawaii – my new home for a month.  Life if good.  I got settled into my teaching position at Iolani School and still found a little time to explore and enjoy Waikiki where I’m staying for 2 weeks.  Not only do I get to watch incredible sunsets from my balcony, but I also had a super duper foodie treat this week  – truffles from Chef Mavro.  Not a bad start to my summer in the winter!

Pali Highway Oahu

Winter in Hawaii – lush! Started my morning with this view from the Pali Highway.


Aston Hotel Waikiki

My home for 2 weeks. Suite overlooking Waikiki – incredible. I could get used to this!



One of these is not like the other.


Truffles Hawaii

Decadent truffles shaved at the table over an egg also ‘infused’ with truffle. And don’t forget the Serrano ham ribbons. I refer to this as #foodie heaven. 6 courses & perfect wine pairings w @chefmavro in Honolulu


Balcony Waikiki

Balcony views.

    I went there in `92 and stayed in that little pink hotel in your second picture. I hope to get back there someday. This time I would like to sail to the other islands. I hope you are doing well.

      Oh goodness – 1992 is a long time ago! Hope you make it back to the islands soon. :) I’m heading out on a sailing day trip when in Kauai next week – looking forward to being on the water!

      • Ryan says:

        If you are trying to make me jealous you succeeded. I hope you have a great time on the water. But there is beauty right here at home. We had 10″ of snow yesterday so my world is a winter wonderland :)

    Waikiki condo life seems so grand! Loved the blue of the water there…!
