Hey everyone! Here is part two of my photo vacation posts, this time all about Hawaii! (If you haven't seen my first one about Vegas you can find it here) I was lucky enough to be able to go to Hawaii this summer because I attended a medical conference through UCSF for doctors (I get to go even though I'm not technically an MD yet because both of my parents are), and being smart doctors love to have their conferences in tropical vacation areas!
So I would go to the conference from 6am-12pm and they would feed us breakfast and then I had the rest of the day free to do whatever I wanted with my mom.
I just wanted to say I think it's hilarious the food that they put out at medical conferences versus regular breakfast places. Downstairs in the hotel there was a breakfast buffet place with typical breakfast foods- pancakes, eggs, sausages, bacon, waffles, juices (probably from concentrates-yuck!)..you name it. But for the conference laid out beautifully was the biggest selection of fresh fruit ever, whole grain sprouted bread, an oatmeal bar with toppings like blueberries, raspberries etc. (I would just take a bowl and fill it up with the blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries and eat that!), and they also had hard boiled eggs, tea, coffee, and water. I mean I was in heaven with the breakfasts they gave us but I could definitely see some people weren't happy. Hey! They're giving you things to fit in with the healthy life style (most) doctors have, everyone should have been as grateful as I was! Especially because I hate breakfast food...I eat fruit almost every morning or granola with yogurt or milk (that was another option! the BEST tropical granola I've ever tried so naturally I asked them what brand and I brought some home with me) so the breakfast was perfect!
Sorry for that little story shoved in there, I just thought it was pretty funny.
These are all pictures of the Big Island (I've been to Maui before too, but this time we were just on this island). **photo heavy**
