Hawaii. This was my first trip flying out of California since March of 2020. In 2019, I flew about 10 times (2 international, 8 domestic trips).

Though I had lived in California for the majority of my life, I am one of the few West Coast-ers that had never been to Hawaii. My past trips involved flying over the island.

Packing for what seemed like a tropical adventure, I started my list out with the essentials.

I planned out the trip relatively loosely, starting with a spreadsheet for what I would do each day.
