When Bryan asked if we wanted to be a part of an epic adventure in Kauai, Hawaii Kristen and I were on board immediately. I’ve always wanted to go there and in general am way more interested in adventurous nature oriented travel these days. Putting this blog together was hard because there was so much that I wanted to communicate about the experience. It was my favorite vacation ever. The group dynamic as well as each individual personality made the experience what it was, but also the the raw beauty of the sharp and pointy, but lush and verdant mountains towering above beautiful beaches and epic lava rock formations. Although Hawaii hosts a lot of tourists, on Kauai, I was very happy to get a sense of respect for nature and the beauty of the island from both locals and tourists. All around, two thumbs up for Kauai!
