Instagram is a great source to get some travel inspiration. As I mentioned in a previous post, it’s a great way to find things to do, both at home and abroad. There are so many adventurers out there, taking pictures of amazing places all around the world. Unsurprisingly, I have started to create a list of these locations. So, without further ado, here are five places that Instagram added to my bucket list. Continue reading “Five Places that Instagram Added to My Bucket List”

Are you searching for a guide to the best Hawaii souvenirs? Well, you’ve found one! This guide from a Hawaii local tells you exactly what kinds of souvenirs from Hawaii are worth it.
Thousands and thousands of tourists come to Hawaii every year. And I always see them going off with the tackiest of souvenirs, like gaudy Hawaiian print shirts (which are locally called “aloha shirts”), plastic flower leis, or dancing hula girl figurines. Instead, I’ve compiled a list of the best Hawaii souvenirs to purchase.
I am not the kind of person to have a bucket list. The idea of having a list of things to do and needing to complete them all isn’t my thing – it’s basically another to-do list, and I’m not about that.

But that won’t stop me from recommending 16 things to add to the bucket lists that you inevitably have. Continue reading “16 Things to Add Your Bucket List Right Now”

The path leads to amazing views of the sunset and an overlook above a bunch of sea lions!! And, to make it even better, it’s not too strenuous.
Therefore, to continue on with my trend of outing all of my secret adventure sites – like I did with Likeke Falls and Ko Olina’s Secret Lagoon, here are some directions to get to this sea lion overlook.
When people think about visiting California, they think about hitting up places like Los Angeles or San Francisco. If they’re going to be a little off the beaten path, maybe they’ll head over to San Diego or Malibu. But there are so many more little hidden gems in California – like Santa Barbara.
This weekend, I spent an entire day in Santa Barbara. Usually I’d just pass it by on a drive from SoCal to The Bay. Maybe I’d make a stop to check out the pier and grab some food, but I’d never dedicated time to spend there. But, this weekend, I found out that there is so much to do there! Being from Hawaii, there are four things that we do when we explore: eat food, go on hikes, chill at the beach, and check out the views. Santa Barbara had all of these, so I was all about it.
