Vlog: Oahu Day 1

We just got back from an AMAZING 5ish day trip to Oahu! We’ll be posting 5 vlogs from our trip, one from each day, where we will show you all of the beaches we went to, places we ate, hikes we did, and coffee we drank. We will also be sharing a guide to Oahu in a couple weeks so you can plan your own vacation! To kick off the series, here is Day 1 of Oahu, where we laid out at Ko Olina, ate our favorite Disney dessert (Dole Whips) at the Aulani resort, and caught a sunset.

Check out the playlist of our entire trip to Oahu, Hawaii here and view our 5 Days on Oahu guide here.


We stayed on the North Shore in Waialua at this Airbnb.

    I loved your Day 1 Oahu Vlog!!! It was really cool to see the landscapes in your takeoff and landing! The beaches are absolutely gorgeous! Adam’s hula dancing arms are adorable! And, that Dole Whip looks pretty irresistible!!! ??

      The takeoff and landing was fun because we took off in the rain and landed in the sun! Woo! And Adam’s hula dancing is probably our favorite part of the whole video lol!
