Hello internet world! I’m back! So it’s been a while since I wrote on here. I did try to make my own site, but I don’t really have the time to commit full time, so it’s back to this little corner of the interweb. Doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy though. It’s been a bit of […]
So I've been to two islands in Hawai'i: Maui and Oahu. Of the two I'd say I prefer Maui, but it's been a while since I've been there (guess I have to go back soon!), so I will share my tips for Oahu instead. I've actually been to Oahu twice fairly recently (this decade), once … Continue reading Flashback Friday: Oahu, HI

Business class with lie flat seats FTW! I made my … Continue reading Heading South to… America? South America that is – Part 2
