The Unexpected Aloha

by | May 10, 2012 | Hawaii, United States | 3 comments


Sometimes we at The Monsoon Diaries surprise even ourselves with some unplanned, last minute trips. Until approximately 48 hours ago, I had no idea would be in Hawaii. And here I am in Honolulu for 4 days.

To give this context: I just completed my second year of medical school. Sometimes there’s just no other way to celebrate.

A Korean temple that went slightly over Hawaii's building code height they had to chop a little off the top

I started off my day by visiting the famous Dole Plantation.

Don’t leave without trying their famous pineapple soft-serve:

Afterwards we drove north to snorkel along Three Tables, a beach along North Shore (the northern part of Oahu island):




Maybe you’ll come across a sea turtle, or maybe even a seal?


"Look, a seal!"


So I spent the entire day with Hawaii’s 2 most beautiful and their friend Jordan Segundo from American Idol. What else is new?




I’m not going to write too much more because, uhm, there isn’t much else to write about. This has been my hard-earned vacation from medical school. I hope you understand.

In the meantime, enjoy the pictures. Wish you were here (not really).
