Welcome to my travel blog.

I may tell you a travel story, share a list of things to do, an itinerary, or something totally irrelevant to travel, but beneficial for life. Either way, have fun looking around. This is my hobby and travel is my passion, so I can get away with contradicting the marketing strategies of the week.

I hope you find the information you need for your upcoming adventures. Maybe you’ll discover a few other things that’ll keep you coming back. (I would like someone to read my posts.)

Always feel free to comment and let me know if you have questions or suggestions. Please follow the GnG guidelines for commenting, which are: Be nice, refrain from cursing, and giggle a little - it’s good for the soul.

Ho’i Hou Ke Aloha

(Let us fall in love all over again)

There are no limits to the romance you can experience in Hawaii; whether at the beach watching the sunset, eating local fruit, and drinking wine or at the finest restaurant on the island enjoying the local food and scenery.

While on Oahu, I have some suggestions to enhance your romantic vacation in paradise. Honestly, there is so much to do and see here - I can't possibly list them all. What I have listed are some of our favorites. Other things can be found on the Experience Oahu page I've linked to below. If you and your love have visited Oahu before, feel free to make suggestions by leaving a comment.

Grits N Giggles recommend the following on Oahu (based on experience):

  • Michel's (dress code) - located in Waikiki, ocean-side. Make reservations.

  • Top of Waikiki - located in Waikiki.

    • I recommend dining on a Friday night to experience fireworks while having dinner.
