Better Together

We’ve been together for awhile now. And I’ve tried to document our travels and our day-to-day lives for our children and grandchildren. Now that we may not have biological children, it’s throwing my documentation for a loop. Regardless of who’s watching these, I love making them. These home movies make me smile and at the least, it’s worth it – to me.

Love you, Mahpunk. Forever and always. On to our next adventure.


#PhillaceAdventure2016 Video

Finally finished our #PhillaceAdventure2016 video! For 31 days, Trevor and I:

  • Flew to CA and spent 6 days with family (Trevor went to AZ for his sister’s wedding while I tried to help my Dad recuperate from back surgery)
  • Flew to Canada for a layover
  • Flew to Reykjavik, Iceland
  • Spent 10 days road tripping and circumnavigating the country
  • Flew to New York and spent the evening in Time Square
  • Flew to Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Flew to Lusaka, Zambia
  • Flew to Mfuwe, Zambia
  • Spent 10 days doing a walking and driving safari with the Lodge and 3 other Bush Camps
  • Flew to Lusaka, Zambia
  • Flew to Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Flew to New York for a layover
  • Flew to San Francisco for a layover
  • Flew to Portland, Oregon
  • Spent 5 days road tripping with Trevor’s Dad, his Stepmom, Peggy, and their dog, Brewser
  • Saw Flight of the Conchords perform not once, but TWICE (BOTH killer seats AND killer shows!)
  • Flew back to O’ahu
  • Spent 5 days with my parents on the island

It was NUTS! One of our best trips so far! Sandwiched with family and tons of incredible landscapes, we had a blast. If this could be our life always.. ;)

It’s going to be hard to top (but we can do it!). I’ve once again fallen in love with people and places and mother nature’s absolute beauty.

#PhillaceAnniversaryTrip Day Six

Day six was incredible.

One of the coolest days of my life – first helicopter ride! And oh. my. gosh. The feeling. The view. The rush. Because of it, T’s looking into pilot school (backup to med school). So much fun!

The clearest of days. We saw tons of sharks, sting rays, eagle rays, and a DUDONG (it’s like a manatee)! Wish we could have dove with him. Next time ;)

There’s our little hut! Last one on the left. Top of the hill (that was a hike every day and every night).

We had lunch at Kraemer’s. Everyone said this was the best restaurant on the island, but I don’t know. The food was delicious, but our first dinner/anniversary dinner and The Taj take the cake. We enjoyed their Hibiscus Breeze though.
