Mount Diablo State Park

Welcome to another Travel Tuesday!  I’d love to tell you that we made it all the way to the top of Mount Diablo for this hike, but…we were running on rather limited time, (I think two of us had somewhere to be by noon), didn’t get started til around 9 a.m., and may have veered off …

Big Tree Area

…This is exactly what it sounds like. Part of Day 3 of my Redwoods Car Camping trip involved visiting the Big Tree Area! (Check out Day 1’s 8-mile hike along the Hidden Beach section of the Coastal Trail, and Day 2’s 12-mile hike through Miner’s Ridge + James Irvine Loop!)

The Big Tree Area is one …

Miner’s Ridge and James Irvine Loop

Hello hello! Welcome to Travel Tuesday and I’m back this time with day 2 of my trip from 6 7 years back (hah), when I went on a Redwoods Car Camping trip with Outdoor Adventures. We went on an ~8 mile hike on the Hidden Beach Section of the Coastal Trail on our first day, …

Coastal Trail Hidden Beach Section

I actually went on this trip 6 years ago. Yes, years. Six of em’. Twas a pre-graduation trip to myself before I graduated from Davis, so I decided to go on the Redwoods Car Camping trip over Memorial Day Weekend with Outdoor Adventures (the outdoorsy club at my school)!

“Car camping” is perhaps slightly misleading, because we did …

SUP at Kailua Beach

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) has been on my bucket list for quite some time, so my friend suggested that I try SUP at Kailua Beach, where the waters were prettier, usually calmer, and also less crowded.

I booked a lesson in Kailua through Kailua Beach Adventures! (I did this right after my Lanikai Pillboxes hike!)

Lanikai Pillboxes Hike

I appeared in Kailua by way of a shuttle because I’d signed up for a SUP lesson there! I was the only one scheduled for SUP that day (hooray for a private lesson!), so when I mentioned I was planning on doing the Lanikai Pillboxes hike, they lent me a bike so that I could get …

Surfing with the Hawaii Surf Guru

I’d never tried surfing before, so I figured…what better place to learn than in Hawai’i?

I do most of my “travel research” on Yelp because I tend to plan my travels around food, so after a bit of digging around, I found amazing reviews for the Hawaii Surf Guru, otherwise known as Kimo.

Kimo …

Touristing + Food Truck Hopping Through Oahu

(If you missed my vacationing on the cheap in Oahu post, my …
