Aloha! I’m Jenny Brocious, travel expert and founder of Round the World in 30 Days.
For the past 15 years I’ve been globetrotting around the world while maintaining a full-time remote career. Round the world trips (especially the 30-day variety) are my specialty. I’ve been around the world 10 times, visiting and writing about more than 175 countries along the way.
Hawaii has always been one of my favorite destinations.
I’ve visited the islands more than 20 times over the years. Sometimes for pleasure, sometimes for business (though even that was a pleasure!). But most often to run the Honolulu Marathon – my first and favorite of the marathons I’ve run.
I’m an 11-time finisher of the Honolulu Marathon. A ridiculously slow finisher, but a finisher nonetheless.
Next stop, Hawaii
After many years of traveling the world, it seems like my life has always revolved around my “next stop.” So when my husband, Dave, accepted a new job on the island of Oahu…that next stop became Hawaii!
And we couldn’t be more exited about it.
Aside from the obvious reason that Hawaii is one of the world’s most extraordinary destinations, the islands have always been a special place for us. In fact, we got engaged at the top of Diamond Head at sunrise (yes, it was just as romantic as it sounds…minus the cheering audience of 500 Japanese tourists).
Now that we’re Hawaii locals…
I’ve been putting my travel blogger skills to work by doing a deep dive on these fabulous islands. The best beaches, favorite restaurants, and all those hidden gems I never had enough time for on my previous visits.
With no looming departure flight to worry about, my goal is to provide visitors to Hawaii with all the local knowledge you need to plan an epic Hawaiian vacation. Whether it’s your first time to the islands or your 10th, there’s always something new to discover.
And while I could have written oodles of posts about Hawaii on my current site, starting a brand new site exclusively devoted to these magnificent islands seemed like the right thing to do. And that’s why you’re here (and not there)!
So let’s get started!
