Secret Sticks

Finding these sticks had been on my Oahu Bucketlist for soo long. I have seen so many pictures on Instagram and couldn't believe they were real until I saw them for myself. We have planned to see them at lest 3 different times and failed each time. It was like a miracle when we found them, and so spontaneous!

Crouching Lion

Crouching Lion has been on my bucket list for a few years now. After seeing snaps of this blue water and view I begged almost every weekend to go! After reaching the top it's safe to say this has become my favorite view. I made sure to wear my old Nikes becuase this hike can get muddy!

Kayak To China Mans Hat

Kayaking to Chinamans Hat has been on my Oahu Bucketlist sense I did my Island Tour! In Hawaii, it's basically impossible to enjoy road trips like you would on the Mainland, so we get pretty creative making our own ha! Paddle Boarding and Kayaking to Oahu's neighbor islands provide the best way to get that 'instate road trip' feel on island!

Olivine TidePools

Ever sense visiting the Makapu'u Tidepools on Oahu...I have become obsessed with tidepools! Mostly because it is like living in a dream; the vast ocean before you, a perfect natural swimming pool, and the amazing fish they hold. It's almost like a secret goal of mine to go to tidepools on all of the islands like Queens Bath on Kauai, these here on Maui, and i'll let you know the rest when I get there! :) These tidepools are located on the Kahekili Highway on the West/North side of Maui. Just about a 10 min drive down the road from the Nakalee Lookout!

Jack Ass Ginger Falls

Everyone loves a good secret, but sometimes things are just to good not to share! Jack Ass Ginger Falls is a small swimming hole and waterfall located right in the Honolulu/Manoa area. To my surprise, it is actually basically in someones backyard! But it is a completely public trail and waterfall!

Na Pali Coast

The Na Pali Coast has to be one of the most enchanting and magical places in the US. Twenty-two miles of unforgettable views and magic with every step. The Na Pali Coast has no road ways for those 22 miles and the only way to access this beautiful coast is by foot on the Kalalau Trail or boat.

Queens Bath

Chances are if you have heard or read anything about the island of Kauai before, you have probably heard of two things: the Na Pali Coast and Queens Bath. And no matter what pre-conceived notions you have about either of them, go and see and experience them! They are just as magical as Instagram makes them out to be. Queens Bath is a giant Tidepool located on Kauai's North Shore in Princeville.

Waipoo Falls

Hopefully you are familiar with the Waimea Canyon now from my previous post if not catch up here! Inside this massive and amazing canyon is an 80 foot free falling waterfall called Waipoo Falls. Before getting to Kauai I did tons of research on what to do and I stumbled upon a website talking about hiking to the top of this waterfall. It actually sounded like a dream to me. But I wrote it down on my itinerary and did some more research to be sure. I tried to get as much info as possible to avoid surprises, but it still turned into a pretty spontaneous and adventurous time!

Waimea Canyon

I was so anxious to go to Kauai and see the Waimea Canyon for my self. I had recently seen it a few times on Instagram and was memorized by the fact there was a giant canyon on an island. It seemed to good to be true! It was the first item on our list once arriving on kauai. We got settled in our car and started the almost 2 hour dive from the airport to the opposite side of the island to Waimea.

Opaekaa Falls

One of the best things about Kauai (although their is many) is how many abundant and stunning waterfalls their are. Opaekaa Falls is located on the east side of Kauai about 15 minutes from the Lihue Airport or 5 minutes from Wailua Falls. It is totally worth going if you have your own rental car and are down to drive around and explore some!

Tunnels Beach

Our trip to Kauai was surprisingly a very smooth trip (minus getting home). Everything just always seemed to work out and we got to see and experience so much. When I found out that our last nights planned camping spot was closed, I was a bit nervous. I had one other backup spot but couldn't remember much about it but off we went. And I am SO glad we did becuase the time we spent at Tunnels Beach was probably my favorite of the trip. It is located on the North Shore about one mile from the end of the road!

Molo'oa Bay

After spending time at Molo'oa Bay I decided that Bays just may be my favorite kind of beach. They always have the most perfect swimming conditions and the water is always sooo blue. Molo'oa Bay was not exception as the perfectly calm water and ocean blues invited everyone in to come play.

Wailua Falls

This is a real place on Earth and it is magical. Wailua Falls is actually a very touristy spot: as it should be. Its beauty should be seen by all! Heading North on Kaumualii Highway you will see plenty of signs pointing to the falls, and your GPS is also sure to take you there, it is pretty much a straight shot!

Anahola Beach

While on vacation it is so easy to rack up that credit card: trust me I know. As I grow up and have the urge to travel more, and maybe a little influence from my Finance 314 class, I now know the importance of planning a travel budget. While exploring the islands there is one huge expense we have to give up: hotels. We try to camp every night and then splurge one night on a hotel to reward our selves for bracing the wild! One of the nights we set up camp at Anahola Beach on the East side of Kauai!

Salt Pond Beach

Welcome to Salt Pond Beach! Nicknamed for its salt collecting ponds, this beach has a ton to offer! It sits on the south side of Kauai between Kaumakani and Hanapepe. It is right next to the Port Allen Airport so at the right time of day you may even catch a few takeoffs!
