Hawaii Travel Diary – Part 1

Location: Kona, Hawaii
·

Like most Midwesterners, I love to escape the brutality of our winters. This winter marked my sister-in-law's 40th, and, happily, she was in to celebrate in a big way. The whole family decided a trip somewhere spectacular was in order, so we chose Hawaii.

In mid-January we packed our bags with bikinis and sundresses (well, I did, at least) and jetted halway across the world to the Big Island.

At long last, I'm so excited to share with you part one of the travel diary of my recent trip up to Traverse City. As a native Michigander, I'm particularly excited about this post--I'm always looking for opportunities to expound on the merits of travelling to my home state. After all, as my father-in-law says, four out of five Great Lakes prefer Michigan.

Traverse City reached out to me this summer to see if I'd be interested in taking a trip up north this fall to visit their many breweries, restaurants, boutiques, and wineries. They had me at brewery.
