Piña Coladas

April 24, 2020

Aloha bruddahs and sistas! This week, two awesome travelers share with us their trip to Oahu, Hawaii.

“Hawaii is one of the most beautiful and natural places in the world.”
- Evan Blum

From the peaceful palms,

to the wonderful waterfalls,

to the outstanding ocean,

...the sights of the island are simply breathtaking.

“My trip to Hawaii was full of adventure, culture, and food!”
- Priya Ghosh

From the fresh fruit and the green geckos,

to the zappy zip-lining,

to the vivid views,

...there’s so much to do and see while in Oahu, Hawaii. 

While there, Evan and Priya found something AMAZING!

We happened upon a fabric warehouse in Oahu and spent a few hours looking through all the patterns and choices. Unsurprisingly, the fabrics we found had that peaceful cultural feel weaved within it. The fabrics symbolize a local staple and represent the beautiful state of Hawaii. We’re happy to share with you something that makes us so happy.

Here’s to sipping Piña Coladas (even if it's on a Zoom virtual background) and getting caught in the rain & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

See ya lei-ter!

Her favorite part of traveling is “meeting people and getting a glimpse into their everyday lives (which is usually so similar and yet so different to mine)” - Martini Morris

“In the region of Hoi An, the local minority group is named "Cham". Currently, the Cham population is only 130,000. A spectacular Cham temple complex named My Son still exists today, very near Hoi An City. We were very lucky to see an amazing dance performance by Cham people at the My Son temples the day we visited.

Siem Reap, Cambodia is one of my most favorite destinations. The history (both ancient and modern) of the country is absolutely fascinating. I am a veteran of the awe inspiring and massive Angkor Wat temple complexes...many times over, because it never gets boring.
