How to spend a long weekend in Kauai I simply love Kauai. My first trip to this island was in March and while I spent a whopping two weeks there, it felt like a long weekend in Kauai. I spent most of my time working in an incredibly comfy airbnb with an open lanai (balcony) and […]

With half a day left to explore Maui, I didn’t waste any time connecting with Jasmine from Holo Holo Maui Tours for some sightseeing with a local.

I know. I’m a horrible wannabe travel blogger when this is the longest I’ve gone without an update. Apologies but Hawaii has kept me so busy!
