Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

July 5, 2015 Categories Camper Van, Road Trips, Travel, USA

It was a long drive today to get to Theodore Roosevelt National Park. It’s only around a five hour drive from Fargo, where we were last night, but it’s an extremely boring drive with almost nothing to look at the entire way. Seriously, North Dakota, can’t you plant some trees or something?! We arrived at … Continue reading Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

Fargo, North Dakota

July 4, 2015 Categories Camper Van, Road Trips, Travel, USA

This morning we stopped at an auction on the side of the road in Park Rapids, Minnesota to see what cool stuff they had. I was really interested in an old Coca-Cola bottle tray, but it would have been a long time to wait for it to reach the auction block. There was a lot … Continue reading Fargo, North Dakota

Nowhere in Particular, Minnesota

July 3, 2015 Categories Camper Van, Road Trips, Travel, USA

Today was the best day. We didn’t follow the “plan” at all and ended up having a blast without even trying. It began this morning after leaving the Walmart we camped at last night and headed off in the direction of Duluth, Minnesota. After driving for maybe 30 minutes, at most, we stumbled across a … Continue reading Nowhere in Particular, Minnesota

Porcupine Mountains State Park, Michigan

July 2, 2015 Categories Camper Van, Road Trips, Travel, USA

Our camp out at the random casino last night worked out great and we were undisturbed the entire night. It was a very comfortable sleep, though it did get a little chilly at some point during the night. We hit the road around 10am and headed for the Porcupine Mountains State Park, right off the … Continue reading Porcupine Mountains State Park, Michigan

Ottawa National Forest, Michigan

July 1, 2015 Categories Camper Van, Road Trips, Travel, USA

We’re currently in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula checking out the Ottawa National Forest and a couple state parks. We were gonna do Isle Royale National Park, but it turns out the ferry ride to the island is like $120 per person, plus $4 per day to be on the island. I have no intentions of spending … Continue reading Ottawa National Forest, Michigan

Koko Head, Hawaii Kai, Oahu, Hawaii

September 8, 2014 Categories Hiking, Trails, Travel, USA

After living in Hawaii for four years and enjoying many spectacular hikes, I always went to a particular hike far more than any other – Koko Head in Hawaii Kai on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. I absolutely loved this hike and it’s one of the trails I miss the most now that I’m not … Continue reading Koko Head, Hawaii Kai, Oahu, Hawaii

Hawaii Loa Ridge Trail, Hawaii Kai, Oahu, Hawaii

September 4, 2014 Categories Hiking, Trails, Travel, USA

The Hawaii Loa Ridge is a hike I did with my friend Janice on a whim one day after being told by someone at work that it had a “bamboo forest” (which it doesn’t). I’ve only done this hike once, but I will always remember its brutality and sinking feeling in my gut when reaching … Continue reading Hawaii Loa Ridge Trail, Hawaii Kai, Oahu, Hawaii

Kolowalu Trail, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

September 1, 2014 Categories Hiking, Trails, Travel, USA

The Kolowalu Trail is a moderate hike and has very few people along the path. I’ve only done the trail once and I think we encountered two other groups during the time we were out there. It offers stunning views into the Manoa Valley and downtown Honolulu, as well as acts as an entry point … Continue reading Kolowalu Trail, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Diamond Head, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

August 18, 2014 Categories Hiking, Trails, Travel, USA

Diamond Head is a hugely popular tourist attraction on the south-eastern shore of Oahu. Due to it’s relatively close proximity to Waikiki Beach (two to three miles away, depending on which end of Waikiki you’re on), this is one of the most heavily trekked hikes on island. It’s also one of only three crater hikes … Continue reading Diamond Head, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

Ka’ena Point, Waianae, Oahu, Hawaii

August 17, 2014 Categories Travel, USA

Ka’ena Point is the north-eastern tip of Oahu and was one of the first places I was introduced to when I initially arrived in Hawaii. I always describe it to people as “the place where the road ends,” seeing as the road literally ends and Ka’ena Point begins. Other than a popular hiking and off-roading … Continue reading Ka’ena Point, Waianae, Oahu, Hawaii
