When in Hawaii

Hawaii is known paradise and a very popular place for vacations. We stayed in Oahu also known as the “The Gathering Place”, the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands. It offers countless tourist attractions and activities; from beaches and sightseeing to historic grounds. Make sure to plan your trip ahead of time and enjoy every moment what this island has to offer.

Hawaiian words we learn during our stay:

Aloha – means hello, love or goodbye

Mahalo – means thank you

Ohana – means family (if you love Disney, probably you heard it from Lilo & Stitch)

Ono – means delicious

Lanai – means balcony or patio
