Historical, Beautiful, Magical Hawaii



I love looking back at all the beautiful places we’ve been. It’s one we continue to feel gratitude for all of the blessings in our lives. One of the earliest trips Miro and I took together was our visit to one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Hawaiian Island of Oahu.

Oahu is 3rd largest of the islands and has the greatest population, of close to one million people. Over 75% of the islands inhabitants reside within the city limits itself.

Why did we choose Oahu? Many reasons. All of the islands in Hawaii Islands chain are magical. All are rich with history and culture. All have miles of beautiful beaches, breathtaking views and demanding volcanoes. And all present the opportunity for endless adventures.

But we choose Oahu, home to the famous Waikiki Beach for other reasons. As a single traveling parent with a young son, I wanted infrastructure. I found a huge variety of reasonable Oahu hotels to choose from. And most of all, after some research, we discovered plenty of activities we could do together.

Places to See and Things to Do

Nuuanu Valley Rain Forest guided hike through the rainforest.

In 2008, after the economy took a turn, Lainie decided to be the change (instead of a victim) and began the process of “lifestyle redesign,” a joint decision between both her and her 11-year-old son, Miro. They sold or gave away all of of their possessions in 2009 and began a life of travel, service, and exploration. Lainie and her son Miro began their open-ended adventure backpacking through Central and South America. They are slow traveling around the globe allowing inspiration to be their compass. The pair is most interested in exploring different cultures, contributing by serving, and connecting with humanity as ‘global citizens.’

Today Lainie considers herself a digital nomad who is living a location independent life. She and her son write and podcast their experiences from the road at Raising Miro on the Road of Life.
