Weekend adventure!

The other weekend, my boyfriend and I had island adventure weekend. First stop, we drove around the North Shore of Oahu. I love driving out there! It’s so beautiful! Here’s some things to take advantage of when visiting the North Shore: click me & have fun!!

We stopped at Foodland in Laie to try these drinks. I love blood orange sodas. The lemon, lime, and bitters had a very interesting taste. I personally didn’t care for it. I think it was the bitters.

Next stop, Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck- the best shrimp in Kahuku if you ask me. This is their most popular plate- Shrimp Scampi. Yummy- and my favorite!

There are so many other food trucks where Giovanni’s is located in Kahuku, including a corn stand and fresh fruit stand that’s located behind Giovanni’s. This the Island Style corn at Uncle Woody’s BBQ Corn. The seasonings included: Hawaiian sea salt, sea salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Yummy!

Later that afternoon, after our North Shore adventure, we headed to Aiea and tried a new smoothie joint- Smooth Tea. We ordered a strawberry/papaya and orange smoothie. We enjoyed the drinks very much. We would definitely return! Also, aren’t these cups cute?! The artist is very talented! Makes the smoothies fun to drink!

For dinner, I finally tried Quiznos for the first time. I was super excited! I ordered the deli sandwich/salad combo: chicken pesto Caesar and apple harvest chicken. Both were delicious!
