Getting to Hawaii

I had mentioned I would be posting about our trip to Hawaii and I figured what better place to start then from the VERY beginning…the travel!

We ended up leaving from the San Diego airport so we had a mini road trip super early in the morning. We woke up before the sun was up to get our stuff and get out the door. We chugged our coffee and headed out πŸ™‚

We ended up making a pit stop for an egg and cheese English muffin and bathroom breaks…


We had also brought along some cuties (clementines). We really try to clean our fridge/pantry areas out before going on trips and this time we still had these, but we ended up eating the rest on the drive.


From San Diego we came back to LA to head to Maui. It was a little odd, but what can you do?

Once at the LAX we decided to have some lunch and made two stops. One for pizza at 800 degrees.


This was honestly overpriced and just okay…the pizza was undercooked and it was underwhelming.

Then we stopped by this wrap and sandwich place and had this chicken and hummus wrap. It was simple but seriously delicious!


The plane from LAX to Hawaii was a little rocky meaning we had turbulence out the whazoo. It was possibly one of the worst flights and despite dramamine I was sick for most of the flight…

I don’t think I had ever been so happy to exit an airplane! The airport in Kahului was partially outdoors and feeling the cool tropical breeze was amazing. We found a rental car and decided to grab some food and groceries before heading to our Air BnB in Paia.

We found a Wal-Mart and got some water, Β baby carrots, and chocolates I believe?!

We wanted something authentic to Hawaii so we stopped by Poi By The Pound. They have some delicious looking things on the menu, but we decided on the Loco Moco. Β It is Β 3 beef patties topped with a couple of eggs over easy and gravy. The Loco Moco came with a side of rice and salad.


You guys, I know it doesn’t look like food porn, but I cannot tell you how amazing, comforting, and delicious this was. We fell asleep exhausted from the day’s travel, but very full and happy πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyed this post and come back Friday for our first full day in Maui!

    Hey!!! Happy New Year!! So not mega jealous at all you went to Hawaii…. Just saying πŸ™‚
    I find I can never eat when I’m travelling. I’m not the best with planes so I always wait till the other side! We to eat our fridge. I try and not do the shop that week and make a game of eating up whats left. I’m always weirdly happy when I get out the door with nothing left πŸ™‚ xx
