Why Hawaii? Why not! I couldn’t have said it better myself. Why not! With Hawaii on my short bucket list (as an avid traveler always has a longer or even never-ending bucket list of destinations to explore), I wanted to get the input of someone in the know. Leslie, a travel lover and writer who.

My secret receta (recipe or prescription in Spanish) for understanding a culture is mainly by the way it cooks, eats, and celebrates with food. That is why, nearly fifteen years ago, I quickly accepted an invitation from my roommate, Juana Mari, to visit her home and cook with her abuela (grandmother). Little did I know.

Many say that the way to a man’s heart in through his stomach. Well, the same goes for this traveler. A sure way to my heart is through good food. AND, New York City has that. Earlier this year, with only a quick 48 hours in NYC, I tantalized my taste buds from breakfast through.
