Aloha! Welcome to Hawaiian Brian’s blog. As you can tell by looking at me, I am neither from Hawaii nor of Hawaiian descent, but I own 26 Hawaiian shirts! I live in the tropical paradise of Columbus, Ohio with my crazy cat lady wife and four cats.
My belief is that life is a vacation and we should spend as much time as possible doing what we enjoy. I enjoy traveling, but I work a middle class job in corporate finance and I only have 3 weeks of vacation. Most of my free time is spent planning and researching in order to make my precious vacations as memorable as possible. In the past 10 years I've visited 4 continents, 21 countries, 21 states, and explored some of the world's most amazing monuments. My goal is to maximize my time and every dollar without sacrificing experiences.
I created this blog to not only share my travel experiences but also to learn from you. Sometimes the best experiences are not easily found on the internet, but from locals or friends who have been there. So, I encourage you to comment or email me. With your help I hope this blog can become an invaluable travel resource to help you plan your next freaking awesome vacation!
