Purpose of this blog
I plan to chronicle my exploration of paradise and hopefully the information will be helpful to others that are looking to explore the island of Oahu. There are over 600miles of hiking trails on this island so it should be quite an experience.
I have made it my mission to explore every type of outdoor activity, beautiful view and unique experience Hawaii has to offer while I’m here. Almost every time I head out snorkeling, diving or hiking it’s to a place I haven’t been before. I am developing favorites but my goal is to see and do it all! I know that my time here in Hawaii is limited and the last thing I want to do is look back and wish I had experienced this or that when I had the chance.
My original exploration of some hikes and activities before a visit from family has turned passion for learning, seeing and doing all I can while I’m here. I find the rich history and unique culture fascinating and I simply cannot seem to quench my thirst for more knowledge.
By moving here, at the army’s say so and expense, we as a family have been given an incredible opportunity of a lifetime to learn about a culture and land that is completely different than anything we have ever seen.
The people in Hawaii are warm and friendly and take care of their own. They have deep roots here going back thousands of years. Some have said that people here do not welcome outsiders but I have not found that to be the case. In fact, most Hawaiian people are willing to share their knowledge and land provided you respect their culture, heritage and land. But wouldn’t you be upset if someone came to your home and left behind trash and treated you and your family with disrespect? So if you are looking for some guidance on outdoor activities or simply wish to live vicariously through me, stay tuned.
