The Best Adventures


I find that the best adventures strike when you least expect it. There’s no way of telling of what’s to come until we stop dipping our toes in the water and take a blind leap of faith. It can be scary. Foregoing routine in exchange for spontaneity, eliminating comfort to seek extraordinary, and prying at the cement walls that have guarded our hearts for too long now.

In January 2019 I left behind the world that I once knew in pursuit of happiness. Of all the crazy adventures thus far, my favorite has been this ever-growing feeling of gratitude. Gratitude and a humbled appreciation for good food, gratitude for genuine people, gratitude for a bed to sleep on and a roof over my head, gratitude for the friends that I’ve made, the ones that I’ve loved, and those who taught me valuable lessons, good and bad. Gratitude for those willing to share their life, introduce me to their world, and show me their passions. Gratitude for every breath, every step, and every day that I wake up knowing life is what I make it, and however I choose it to be.

Thank you to those who made these past two months unforgettable.

Here are a collection of my favorite memories from Hawaii that haven’t already been shared. So thankful for everyone that I met along the way.

Until next time…
