Exploring real life Jurassic park, Kauai, by helicopter

It was a fabulous hair day...

I ended up booking a helicopter tour for 2 reaons:

a) because barely any of Kauai is accessible by road and food (30%) and I wanted to see more

b)I got a rash from staying in the hostel with a broken roof and thought I could brave out more nights there and really treat myself with an activity or I could move to a hotel. I ended up sticking it out in the hostel so I was really glad when it was time to have my reward!

There was something so fun about exploring the Island from the air as a change. I had tried to get on a door-less helicopter tour but they were fully booked and I was really glad I hadn't when it started to rain right at the end haha.

These are the Taro fields ^^ that are so famous in Hawaii.

Beautiful golden beaches. Hawaii was voted to have the best beaches in the world and it's easy to see why - I was surprised they weren't that busy.

Because Kauai is relatively small for an island we got to see everything - from the coast, to the Canyon... waterfalls you can't get to on foot. Do you remember the waterfall from Jurassic Park? Nope, me neither but I am going to do my homework when i get back home because this was in it and my gosh, they would not stop banging on about it on the tour haha, it's sweet they are so proud.

I am in love with the scenery here. I can't get over how different it is to anything else I've ever seen, it's just got such amazing vegetation. I personally haven't seen anywhere like it before so I really enjoyed experiencing something so different.

It was a really relaxing tour because I felt really safe and had a lot of fun. I was luckily with a nice group and because I was on my own, I got the window seat. 

Time for some photo spam...

So, when are you planning your trip to Hawaii?
