If you’ve been following my blog for a little while, you’ve probably noticed that I’m a bit of a foodie. I mean, I created a two-part Hawaii food bucket list (here’s part 1 and part 2). I go around the island of Oahu trying to find the best of the best. Sometimes I end up trying some pretty bad dishes (when I wrote this post on where to get the best poke bowls on Oahu, I tried some truly terrible poke before finding these four). I’m not going to lie, I had to try some awful malasadas for this post as well. But my taste buds suffered so yours didn’t have to. Here’s where to get the best malasadas on Oahu, Hawaii.

So to help you out, here is a Hawaii Packing List for all the items you won’t think to bring (a printable version is available at the end of the post).

As my second to last semester in college comes to a close, I’ve started to reminisce a bit about the memories and experiences I’ve had. By far, the most impactful part of my time in college was when I studied abroad in Lausanne, Switzerland for my sophomore year. So I’ll be retelling the story of my time abroad in Switzerland.
