After that wedding video, if Tom Daley and hubby Dustin Lance Black didn’t have a picture-perfect honeymoon, it would be a real letdown.

But of course they did.

It started with a trip to Spain, complete with morning yoga:

And after that, a quick 7,800 mile flight to Hawaii. You know how some people try claiming their “birthday month“? Tom and Dustin are taking a similar approach to their honeymoon.

Tom shared an admittedly adorable shot while on a hike on Oahu, but a closer look reveals the newlyweds are actually somewhere they are legally not supposed to be.

Here’s the shot:

It may indeed be “paradise,” but the Haiku Stairs (aka the “Stairway to Heaven”) the photo was taken from are actually very much illegal to ascend.


HuffPo sheds some light on the matter:

Amidst the lush Koolau mountain range, the 3,922 steps lead up to the stunning Puu Keahiakahoe summit. The stairway was originally wooden and was installed during World War II so the military could access a radio station antennae 2,000 feet up the mountain. In the 1950s, the stairs were replaced with steel steps that led to a newly established Coast Guard navigation station.

The navigation station has been closed since the 1980s and the hike is also off-limits now.

Hikers show up daily before the sun rises in hopes of arriving to the entrance before the security guard, but getting caught can come with a steep fine.

However, the climb up is even steeper, and it’s no wonder why so many people want to take this adrenaline-fueled illegal adventure:
