Having Nerdy Moments in Hawaii

I love fun little tours, to be honest I love independent travel, but I often supplement with unique side tours that make the trip a little touristy.  Plus I often discover that the tour guides typically love their city, country… and they are often very passionate.

When dad and I started to plan our trip we decided that we would take the Kualoa Ranch Movie Sites & Ranch Tour the day after we arrived, we would be able to relax and deal with any jet lag we may have (we didn’t have much!)

I of course in typical fan-girl fashion geeked out over the tour because well Jurassic Park was filmed there.

I love Jurassic Park.  I can go on and on and on about the science behind Jurassic Park, any ride themed after the movie… and well the movie in general.


I would learn there were about 80 films at the ranch.

Oh and I mention Lost was filmed at the ranch?


Yep you read that right folks, Lost was also filmed there.

Now I jumped off the Lost wagon after about season five, but I have a lot of friends that love Lost, and I promise you will have to do this if you are a lost junkie.

Pearl Harbor, Fifty First Dates, Godzilla… are just a few.

Overall this was a great first day in Hawaii tour for dad and me to go on.  It was an utter blast and I am seriously missing my time in Hawaii.  I can’t wait to go back!

Here are a few of the pics from the day.  I apologize the quality isn’t the best, I had to buy a last minute point & shoot due to my DSLR charger being MIA.  Believe me when I tell you the photos do not do Hawaii any justice!
