Up until recently, Hawaii has always seemed like a wildest-dreams type of destination, one that you talk about but that doesn’t quite seem attainable. But since I’ve now reached the finically stable years of my thirties and by some miracle Delta Airlines offers direct flights from Minneapolis to Honolulu—suddenly it became a real possibility. So to celebrate my 34th birthday, my boyfriend and I booked a week-long vacation to Hawaii.
We chose the island of Kauai because it is a hiker’s paradise. It has beaches, cliffs, waterfalls, plus there’s tons of amazing food and it’s a lot less crowded than some of the other Hawaiian Islands.
I planned out a 5-day itinerary centered around hiking that gave us the opportunity to see the natural wonders of the island. I’ll be sharing detailed posts about everything we saw but I wanted to kick it off with some of the highlights!
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more about Kauai!
