Oahu Travel Diary

This was Brad’s first time to Oahu, and I was STOKED because it is by far my favorite Hawaiian Island that I’ve been to! My sister Erika and her husband JJ used to live there ten years ago, so I have the fondest memories of visiting them here. 🙂 I also feel like I have an in when creating an Oahu Travel Diary. They know all the best spots to hit on the island, and we were lucky enough to have them as our tour guides our whole family vacation! I wish I had people to show us around all the places we visit. It was so special!

FAVORITE PLACES WE WENT:
Manoa Falls, Pillbox Hike, Halona Beach, Mona Willie Falls, & Kayaking to Mokulua Island!

FAVORITE PLACES WE ATE:
Malasadas @ Leonards Bakery, Ted’s Bakery , Matsumotos Shave Ice, Teddy’s Bigger Burger, Bonsai Bowls, Nalu, & Seven Brothers! I’d recommend it all!

My parents wanted to start a tradition to stay connected, because between me and my siblings, we all have busy lives and some of us live in different states! So, every 3 years we do a couples trip to Hawaii. 🙂 It’s so special to reconnect with each other. I am really close with my siblings and staying connected throughout the years will always be a priority. Our first trip was actually in 2014, and we were the couple who had to bring their baby (Lucy) because I was nursing! It’s so crazy to look back at those pictures, because it doesn’t feel too long ago but Lucy has grown SO MUCH. (see our previous trip here).

Time goes so quick, and so I’m grateful for these opportunities to connect, and laugh until my stomach hurts with my favorite people. 😉 It was another amazing trip for the books!

^^ When I was in seventh grade, all my friends started wearing bras and I literally prayed for the day that I needed to wear one! That day never came… ? God sure has a good sense of humor. ^^

    Yeah! I am so glad you were able to get this video out before you left for Chili! It was so fun to see all that you did on you vacation. How fun! Hope you have a fantastic visit with Brad’s grandparents! Watching your videos always brings a big smile to my families face! Auf Wiedersehen from Germany!

    My husband and I just back from Oahu. We didn’t do any of the things you just listed. Guess we’ll have to go back. It definitely isn’t a place you can only visit once. So much fun and beauty.

      Also (!!!!) what setting did you have your camera on when you took your photos with the PoeHaku? I love how sharp they are and how blurred out the background is!

    Thanks for the tips you write about through this website. In addition, many young women that become pregnant don’t even try and get health insurance because they are concerned they couldn’t qualify. Although some states today require that insurers supply coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Costs on most of these guaranteed options are usually greater, but when thinking about the high cost of medical care it may be the safer approach to take to protect one’s financial future.
