Klean Kanteen: The Insulated Water Bottle That Works

For some reason, Hawaii has been obsessed with that insulated bottle brand that starts with an H and ends with a K. You know what brand I’m talking about. Thing is, that brand of water bottle always seems to break down on on me. Yup, I’ve never had a Hydro Flask last longer than three months. I’ve even sent back for replacement bottles (read the very bottom for more information on said replacements), only to have the replacement bottle then break down. And by break down I mean it no longer will maintain insulation as promised. In other words, they sucked.

Enter Klean Kanteen. Klean Kanteen renewed my faith in the insulated water bottle market.

Nitrogenie Hawaii: Real Ice Cream Made With Liquid Nitrogen

Move over frozen yogurt, the next cool thing has arrived to the islands. Nitrogenie, located in the brand new Ewa Wing of Ala Moana Center, is the first made-to-order liquid nitrogen ice cream shop to hit Hawaii. Earlier this week I had the chance to chill (the icy puns continue) with Nitrogenie co-founder, Todd Farr, and taste some of their unique offerings.

Books: Vagabonding by Rolf Potts

I first read Rolf Pott’s Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel many years ago, upon recommendation from Tim Ferriss. The book blew me away. Wanderlust through words, I thought. But the act of vagabonding is much more than just a lust for wandering. Vagabonding, in many ways, is about inner self-discovery, coupled with the ability to experience pure joy from the people that we surround ourselves with and the world that we live in.
