I recently took a trip to kauai with my boyfriend, ravi. we stayed in kapaa, in a perfect airbnb called "groovy green house," a small house with screen doors, surrounded by crowing roosters and endless wildlife. In town, our favorite places to grub were java kai, waimea shave ice and kauai juice co, all of which had gluten free, fruit and veggie-filled options. 

we were lucky enough to be in hawaii at the same time as our friend rob. he, along with his friend sam, brought us around the island to magical places only a local would know. as a water baby and avid hiker, a few of my favorite memories were made at wailua falls, hanalei bay, queen’s bath, and the kalalau trail. what are your favorite things to experience in kauai?
