Adventure Traveler

Growing up, I traveled to many places around the world with my father, but we have ended up in Hawaii numerous times, and that’s where I really began to love the ocean. Some of my most memorable moments in Kauai have been sailing on my uncle’s boat, snorkeling, surfing China walls, and just being in the water in general. When I travel, I love to surf, snorkel, scuba dive, sail, try new food, listen to new music, and look for high things to jump off of into water. I crave the perfect beach where I can take a break from the fast pace of life. While kicking back in Kauai, I'd listen to Azari & III, Linkin Park, and the Dim Mak catalog of summer releases that just came out.

The activities not to be missed

1. Surfing - It doesn't get any better than surfing in the ocean in Kauai.
2. Helicopter Ride - Check out the sick views from above and tour around the tropical rainforest of Hanalei Valley.
3. Scuba diving - Kauai has incredible underwater life. Swim around with dolphins, turtles and tropical fish.

My favorite places to eat

1. Bar Acuda - Tasty tapas and other Southern European dishes.
2. Roy's Poipu Bar & Grill - Great atmosphere, tailored menu for foodies.

My hidden gems

1. The green flash - Get out and watch the sunset on a clear night, and just as it sets into the blue waters, a flash or laser beam of green will shoot out for an instant.
2. National Tropical Botanical Garden - Amazing plant species, you can walk around for hours.
3. San Marga Iraivan Temple - White granite stone Hindu temple sculpted in India and constructed in Kaui, stunning architecture.
