Best Beaches in Hawaii:

Insects in Hawaii:

Mosquitos- none in Waikiki, the only mosquito bites I got was at the Moana falls. It was raining the whole time I was on the trail up. It would be good to use some repellent. I had this stick, but not this day with me. I wasn’t bitten too much so stick would suffice.

I had seen cockroaches 3 times.

What to see in Hawaii:

If I had to pick 1 must see spot on Oahu, I would pick Hoomaluchia Botanical Garden. If I could pick 3 things I would add Kualoa Ranch, where they filmed 50 first dates and Stairway to Heaven.

Hawaii sightseeing tips:

  1. if you are going by yourself make use of couch-surfing app to meet people to go on trips together and share uber cost.
  2. Stay in different areas during your stay: Waikiki, Kailua, North Shore. It is all worth 2-3 nights as you have different beaches, hikes and sites nearby
  3. Rent Biki and drive around Waikiki.

Is it possible to do Hawaii on a budget:

Yes it is, there are couchsurfers who can offer a place to stay. There are cheap accommodations, but make sure you book it at least 2 months in advance, as on the spot you won’t find a couch in the living room for less then $80. I was able to find a 1bd apartment on Airbnb for $45, 4min walk from Waikiki Beach.

Hi, my name is Joanna, I started this blog in Jan 2017. I created posts about beauty, fashion, travel, rabbits, money blogging ect. Simply put: all the stuff I care about. After 10 months I realized my blog is not getting enough traffic so I dived into research. Till Oct 2017 I only had around 700 visitors on my blog per month. Then I implemented my Pinterest strategy and automated my pinning with my own build tool – PinMeApp. In Nov 2017 I got 3300 page views and then in Dec 2017 8500. That is how my app was born: PinMeApp. I wanted to help others grow traffic to their sites as well. Today I offer subscription for my app, but I also teach people my Pinterest strategy, step by step what I did to grow the traffic so fast, so this blog is now getting around 20k page views each month. I also offer Pinterest Management and implement my strategy for brands who want to reach their audience on Pinterest as well. My Pinterest account reaches over 5m people monthly. If you want such results feel free to contact me. Cheers, Joanna
