Growing up on Oahu, Interisland trips were mainly for visiting family, but I didn’t realize that family is just one part of it. This year I got to share adventures on the Neighbor Islands with people I love and cherish. I got to experience each islands’ personality through its people, food, and beautiful views.

We randomly decided we should do a Kauai day trip. We hopped on the 9:43 am flight, grabbed the car, and was on the way to Hanalei Pier with a quick stop for breakfast. We were blessed with a little touch of light rain, so we decided to head to another spot. We were really lucky to find a parking spot at Hideaways. We trekked down the hill and found an empty beach and a bright double rainbow. We frolicked for a couple hours, before we were poured on as we headed up the muddy hill.
