I thought I was going to get the opportunity to go to a massive bucket list destination through work this fall. I’ve always dreamed of visiting New York.

Desire authentic souvenirs? The Maui Swap Meet it is!

read

One day while cooling off at our pool while in Maui, I had the chance to chat it up with a few visitors, learning about their adventures and must sees. I love how people on vacation talk. They have TIME to talk. There’s a big difference. We got to chatting about (the lack of junk) shopping, […]
