Everyone says Kauai/Hawaii is so expensive once you’re on the island. I beg to differ. We got an insider tip from a flight attendant who stays at the resort frequently. She said to go to this cheap, but delicious, place "off the resort property," but actually right next to the resort. Like music to our ears, we headed that way! It was only 15 bucks for both of us to eat! I had French toast, eggs, and bacon, and Chris had a huge breakfast sandwich. Can’t even be that in the states!
After breakfast we caught the shuttle to the airport to rent a car. Our hotel was about a two minute shuttle ride to the airport. We had signed up to rent a "body bag," as Chris called it (a super small car, Aveo, or something like that), but we opted to upgrade to a Jeep Patriot.
The island is split in two by the Waimea Canyon. That day we were heading as far north (right side of the island) as possible. We started our adventure and stopped at a farmer's market where we purchased two avocados and a mini-pineapple. Apparently the small pineapples are less acidic.
