The Ultimate Guide to Hawaii’s Best Adventures

As you may know if you’ve ever met me, I LOVE Hawaii! I was ready to move there on my first ever trip to the islands for Steve’s and my 1st wedding anniversary. Now we’ve been to five of the six inhabited islands and I am more in love with the culture, people, and food than ever before. If Hawaii’s on your short list of places to visit, here are some truly epic experiences to put on your to-do list!

Everything You Need to Know Before You Visit the Hawaiian Islands

I’ve been posting a lot about Maui lately, since that was our big anniversary trip this year, but I got to thinking that there are a lot of things to know before you visit any Hawaiian island. So, here is the quick run-down of things to know before you visit Hawaii–whichever island or islands you choose!

What to Know Before You Visit Kauai

I’m taking a break from my usual “top 10 reasons to visit” list to bring you some tips for visiting the most beautiful place I’ve ever been in all the world: Kauai, Hawaii!

We gathered our belongings, ate breakfast downstairs, and with great reluctance, we checked out. Luckily forContinue reading “Trekking the Grand Canyon (of the Pacific)”

Beach Day in Paradise

Most people just hate Mondays. This year, our second anniversary fell on a Monday, and we spent it at the beach! Best Monday ever! But before beach time, we started the day with a gorgeous run! Not a bad view on a morning run! That’s the lighthouse that protects boats from Kalapaki Beach, where we wouldContinue reading “Beach Day in Paradise”

North Shore Shenanigans

Welcome back, my readers! Sunday morning dawned early for us! Since we were up and alert at 4:30 am (10:30 East Coast Time), we decided to call into my congregation’s “worship hotline” to listen into the Sunday service and participate together from afar! There is a church on Kauai we could have gone to, soContinue reading “North Shore Shenanigans”
