There is only one reason I'm okay with my sister living far, far away from me. And it's because she picks hopelessly epic cities to reside in (hello nyc & london!).
She's been living on Oahu for almost two years, so it was high time I ventured out to the islands.
We had the very best time.
She's a natural born tour guide.
Beaches, shaved ice, jungles, shaved ice, food trucks, shaved ice, the most beautiful oceans (and believe me, I've seen some beautiful oceans).
Ukeleles, flowers. Oh the flowers.
Picnics, big hair, tropical treats, hula.
It was perfect.
There are so many beautiful places in this world and we're pretty lucky to call one our own.
Some highlights? Waiola Shave Ice (and we should know, we tried them all). Chief's. Wandering the North Shore. Hanauma Bay. Some of the best things I've ever eaten. Dinner and a view. #teachyoself. And four epic, epic meals.
Go. Even if it takes you six years to save up the miles. Or you don't have a sister who gives you the locals treatment. Just do it.
