My husband and I are gearing up to head to Hawaii for the second time and we can hardly wait! We went for the first time in August 2017 for our honeymoon and visited the islands of Oahu and Maui. Upon stepping off the airport we immediately fell in love with the island life and knew we would be back. I think Nate would move there if I let him ;) So we started saving and planning and we couldn't be more excited to be heading back to Kauai and Maui for 10 days at the end of this month. Be prepared for lots of blogs and photos to come!
Recently, as I've been talking to people about our upcoming trip I've heard a lot of comments such as "Isn't Hawaii so expensive?!" and "You're going back again..how can you afford that?" It was those types of comments that sparked the idea for this post and I thought I would share some of the tips and strategies we use to save extra money for traveling. Now, keep in mind this is certainly not an all-encompassing list. My husband and I are both blessed with careers we love in the marketing industry and are currently living the DINK life (dual income no kids) so we automatically have a bit more dispensable income.
With that being said, YES Hawaii is a more expensive place to vacation than most other places and may not be possible for everyone. But I hope you can take away at least one or two tips from this list to help you save for your next adventure - even if it's simply a weekend getaway in your home state!
