“Laur” behind Lauraloha Travel

Aloha! I’m Lauren aka “Laur”, the Hawaii-fanatic behind this travel blog! If you’re reading this, I first just want to say how much it means to me that you’re here. Thank you so, so much for your support! 


To say I’m obsessed with Hawaii is an understatement. My life was forever changed the moment I stepped foot on Oahu for the first time in 2014 as an ocean-obsessed 18-year-old, traveling solo to spend a summer semester at Hawai’i Pacific University. I had no idea a trip meant to be a simple change of scenery would quickly turn into a full-on love affair with the islands of Hawaii. I became hopelessly enamored with the aloha spirit and have been fascinated by Hawaiian culture and history ever since. (The gorgeous scenery miiight have influenced my obsession a bit too 😉)


Since that first visit, I have spent as much time as possible on Oahu, meticulously planning each trip so I don’t waste a single second of precious island time! I’ve spent countless hours planning my trips, so I know how overwhelming it can be when you begin searching for things to do and are met with thousands of results. It is A LOT of work to pore over multiple sources and make an actual plan out of all the information out there. That’s why after 6+ years of combing through every guide out there to make my own trips as amazing as possible, I realized I had an opportunity to turn my knowledge and personal experiences into a one-stop platform to help others plan their own memorable and meaningful Hawaiian getaways. 


I’m so excited to see where Lauraloha takes you and I’m endlessly thankful for the opportunity to help you explore and embrace the most wonderful place on Earth—Hawai’i!
