Four years ago this month our family of five took a cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. We visited Oahu, Kauai, Hawaii, and Maui.
After we arrived in Honolulu (on Oahu) we spent three days exploring the island before boarding the ship. I even got to show my kids the dorm where I lived, Hale Laulima. It means The House of Many Hands. The thing I loved most about my dorm was the open, cement block walls in the hallway. A great tropical breeze wafted through there, twenty-four/seven! I also showed them The Atherton YMCA where I stayed before getting a spot in the dorm.

We loved swimming with the turtles on the North Shore and gorging on Shave Ice at Aoki’s in Haleiwa.

I’ll post more blogs about my favorite spots over the next month or two. Keep checking back to learn more!
Mahalo for visiting!
