2012 / Hawaii

In September Alex and I joined my parents on the Island of Hawaii, or more commonly known as the big island. We did all sorts of fun things like horseback riding, visiting the volcano, and of course, going to the beach. Since we had our own car, it made it more fun because we weren’t…


2010 / Hawaii

Alex and I traveled to the big island of Hawaii in August 2010 with my parents. We visited many places on the big island, and tried to see as much as possible in the week we had there. On the first day, we arrived in around mid-afternoon, so we didn’t have much time to go…


2008 / Hawaii

In August of 2008 I re-visited the big island of Hawaii. This time my brother and grandmother accompanied myself and my parents on the trip. We did a trip around as much of the island as possible to share with them the awesome landscape and reefs around the island. We also visited the southern most…


2007 / Hawaii

In August of 2007 I visited the big island of Hawaii. I have to say that the big island is my favorite of the Hawaiian islands, followed closely by Maui. The big island has crystal clear water, and some amazing beaches, including Maniniowali, my personal favorite. You can often see turtles swimming around the rocks…


2017 / Norwegian Fjord Cruise

In 2017, Alex and I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to basically pick any vacation we could dream of, and actually do it. We chose to take a cruise with Princess in the Norwegian Fjords. The short version of the story: it was amazing!


2016 / Maui

Having not been to Hawaii since 2012, it was time to go back. This time, it was just me and Alex for a nice, relaxed vacation with no schedules to keep or other people to please. Knowing that September was going to be a stressful month dealing with things like birthdays and weddings, I planned a vacation to Maui…


National Parks

One of my goals in life is to visit as many national parks in the United States as possible. I know that’s a little short-sighted, as there are national parks all around the world, but even trying to tackle just the American ones seems like a daunting task when I think about it. I have…


2014 / Caribbean Honeymoon

In March, after Alex and I were wed, we went on our honeymoon. It was a Princess Cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to St. Thomas and St. Maarten, in the Caribbean. The cruise was also supposed to include Princess Cays in the Bahamas, but due to weather conditions, we were unable to ride the tenders to shore, and so we had an extra day at sea. We set sail aboard the Royal Princess, which was the newest ship in the Princess fleet at the time. It was the first time cruising for both me and Alex, and it was amazing.


2011 / Maui

This year in September we visited the island of Maui in Hawaii. I went with my girlfriend, Alex and my sister. The trip to the airport was uneventful, and quite easy, since we had Primetime Shuttle service pick us up at 5am PST. Once we landed in Kahului, we spent about an hour hanging out at…


2006 / Kauai

In August of 2006 I visited the Hawaiian islands of Kauai and Oahu. The majority of the visit was to Kauai, but I did a day trip to the island of Oahu. Oahu is like the Los Angeles of Hawaii. There was a substantial amount of traffic, and a limited amount of friendliness on this…
