Jennifer Kaufman, Wayfinding TravelingMom

Jennifer Kaufman is a stay-at-home mom of three travel-crazy kids: 8-year-old twin girls, and their 4-year-old little brother. Commonly known as “that Disney family”, she and her husband have discovered that the very things that draw them to Disney destinations – the story, the attention to detail, and the “little things” – can often be found anywhere they look. She has always had an insurmountable case of wanderlust, daydreaming of what it would be like to pick up the family and move to Europe for a few years, or perhaps live off of a boat for a while. As she waits for such a grand adventure, she has dedicated herself to exploring the stories and details wherever she travels, and finding the joy in the everyday moments at home. Jennifer and her family can be found in articles, videos, and podcast episodes at The Delightful Life.

5 PLACES ON OAHU TO FALL IN LOVE WITH HAWAIIAN Culture

For many people, Oahu seems to be the Hawaiian island that was once famous, has a few world-renowned beaches and attractions, but is not a priority to visit when compared to other options. Perhaps it’s worth a visit to Pearl Harbor if you fly into Honolulu, but only en route to Maui or Kauai. In reality, Oahu is perhaps unparalleled for truly discovering Hawaiian history, culture, and food. Not long after my husband and I got married, it came up that I had little interest in visiting Hawaii. (I know, I know…) It’s not that I wouldn’t go if...
