I’ve spent the month dividing myself between home base, Hawaii and the motherland and have spent a disproportionate amount of time on planes, trains and automobiles. Now, I’m all settled at mum’s in the UK, it’s time to take a breath and take stock. I’d love it if you joined me!

Eating: Malasadas – these hot donuts are so naughty but so nice!
Drinking: The Mai Tais of Waikiki. I totally took one for the team and tried to try them all!
