Hi, I’m Tayla

I’m a travel writer, adventure lover, and We Are Explorers contributor. 

I recently visited Hawaiʻi; a land known for its friendly locals and epic surf culture. But I’ve discovered first-hand that what makes Hawai’i special runs far deeper. 

I hiked vast volcanic landscapes and swam with manta rays under the moonlight. I soared over verdant tropical jungles in a helicopter and took an immersive, delicious lesson in Hawaiian history via my tastebuds.

But above all, I discovered a land that puts culture and traditions first, and prioritises interconnectedness with the land.

Join me as I discover Hawaiʻi, and its ethos of ‘Mālama kuʻu home’ – taking care of my beloved home.
