Exploring OAHU, HAWAII in 72 HOURS! A NEW Travel Itinerary Challenge Series

For our first ever visit to the State of #Hawaii, we end up exploring #OAHU in 72 HOURS! We chronicle our adventures visiting four (4) different islands of Hawaii in our new “Travel Itinerary Challenge” series to share our experience seeing, eating, and doing a number of attractions in a set amount of time.

We’ve found, after many years traveling together, that we have the tendency of cramming as many things as possible into the trip as we get overly excited about wanting to DO, EAT, and SEE EVERYTHING!

Below is the original list we set out to complete for our first visit to Oahu. In this “Travel Itinerary Challenge” series, we will see how close we can get to checking off each item on our list.
