Hawaii Part 1: The North Shore Airbnb


I’m finally getting around to editing and posting my photos from Hawaii! Oahu was amazing and beautiful. We did tons of fun stuff like surfing, stand up paddle boarding and hiking, but this first blog post is about the Airbnb we stayed at the first 4 days of our trip, Top Floor Pipeline Lodge on Farm (we were there for 9 whole days!).

Our first Airbnb was on the North Shore of the island, which is like the countryside – there were few restaurants, numerous food trucks (delicious!) – and wild chickens everywhere. Our Airbnb was amazing too – an organic farm with a view of the ocean!

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves though…        DSC01996 IMG_20150511_144834

This was our Airbnb housemate/chaperone. We named him Simba.IMG_20150511_144937 IMG_20150511_144955 IMG_20150511_145011 IMG_20150511_145021 IMG_20150511_145037 IMG_20150512_120847

This was a real organic farm with a chicken coop, vegetable garden and everything! On our first day, we got a box of delicious organic produce for $25. There was so much salad, kale, carrots, radishes, turnips and herbs in there we barely ever ate dinner out!DSC01990DSC01988

There were also huts where the owners taught neat classes like baby music class!DSC01991DSC01993

We were warned there were wild boar and goats when we met the owner, but it sounded like they hid so we had no idea we would see any!

Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy! And a New Post on Trint!


Fresh pig, here I come! This weekend, my grandparents decided that they would like to take me to eat (super) fresh pig at a cute little farm. The thing was almost still alive when we ate it! They killed the poor piggy just a few hours earlier that same day and cooked it BBQ style (NOT with BBQ sauce mind you, this is France after all O=]) on a spit.

Check out the pictures!

Isn't that a good-looking pig?!

Here's a closer look

Besides pig, there were also delicious home-made terrines & rillettes.

Last but not least, here’s a picture of the beautiful farm where we ate.
