We love Hawaii the food and the vibe it’s wonderful. whether you are preparing for a visit or dreaming of one. Why not explore from home: Hawaii.
I love trying new food and trying to get my kids to try it. It’s part of our travel experience. The great thing about being home is that you can have the kids help out making the food as an activity.
