Overall, it was a great workshop. We had some great highlights. The whale watching was phenomenal. A doors-off helicopter trip is one of those once-in-a-lifetime activities, and where better to do it than in Hawaii. And along the way, we visited a ton of different beaches. Saw massive cliffs, flat beaches, arid grasslands, two 13,000 ft volcanoes, endemic birds, the list goes on!
We ate well too. I think Big Island and Kauai offer the best food you can find in a Backcountry Journeys workshop. We had lots of poke, acai bowls, great fine dining, and even a loco moco or two along the way. If you don’t know what a loco moco is, you’ll just have to join for 2023 to find out!
