We landed in Hawaii yesterday, and since our arrival I have been soaking up a lot of much needed vitamin D and enjoying some much needed relaxation.
I have barely been here for 24 hours and have already seen four rainbows.
We woke up early this morning and had a delicious breakfast at the Wailana Coffee House. I enjoyed some delicious Hawaiian style muesli (with half-and-half, crushed macadamia nuts and banana slices) — along with a huge papaya half. I have fallen in love with papaya — it is irresistible with a little squeeze of lemon. My dad had the Belgian waffle and my mom had the Portuguese french toast (which was stuffed with strawberry jelly — yum!).
As a coffee addict — let me tell you that the coffee here is insanely good. Super dark, rich, smooth and mellow. I enjoyed three cups this morning — and have been on a caffeine high all day! Wheee!
I also went for a four and a half mile run down Waikiki (so much energy thanks to that delicious, Hawaiian coffee!). It was drizzling a little bit (but still sunny). It was probably one of the most invigorating and refreshing runs of my life!
