Travel Advisor: Kelly Bohaker
Favorite destination? Maui
Why is that your favorite destination? Aloha! Growing up on the beaches of southern California, the beach is my happy place. With over 30 miles of beach in Maui I am swimming, boating, kayaking, snorkeling and paddle boarding. The beaches in Maui are the most beautiful, warm, serene my happy place! The road to Hana taking in the pools and waterfalls of Ohe'o Gulch and stopping taking in locals weaving banana leaves into hats and baskets. Getting up at 2:00AM experiencing the sunrise on the highest peak the Halekala Volcano. Mahalo!
What destination is on your bucket list? Africa - Tanzania and Kenya
Why is that destination on your bucket list? I have always been so fascinated with the migration of over 2 million animals including wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrating on a yearly basis in a clockwise direction crossing ecosystems of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara. The circle of life! The wide-open spaces, the people, culture and the colors whether it be the sky, clothing, food. Sleeping under the stars and experiencing a safari.
