If you’d like to get off the beaten path in Hawai‘i, Ashley Larson is happy to show you the way. The Hawaii Aloha Travel agent has visited all of the islands of Hawai‘i and loves to help people find unique experiences on them.
Ashley can describe places for travelers to visit on their own. For example, she recommends hiking and snorkeling as great free activities in Hawai‘i and she’s happy to give you personalized recommendations depending on the time and location of your visit. The photo shows Ashley at the Ko‘olau waterfall on Oahu, a wonderful place that is a relatively easy but unmarked hike.
Ashley has a degree in marketing from the University of Utah. She has lived in many beautiful places, including Park City, Utah and San Diego, California. Ashley now calls the North Shore of Oahu home. Ashley says there are dozens of turtles in the ocean outside her ocean front home, so it is easy to swim with them. Other activities she enjoys on the North Shore include yoga retreats and warming up horses before polo matches. She says yoga and nature are quiet things that calm the mind.
“This is what I do in my spare time: I do yoga, golf, swim with turtles and help with polo horses.” She also begins each day with a walk along the beach to pick up trash. “I really respect and care about the land, the ‘aina,” Ashley says. She has been learning about the history and culture of Hawai‘i before it became a state. She explains to potential visitors the meaning of a lei gift, and that the aloha spirit represents both love and respect.
Ashley has worked for Hawaii Aloha Travel for over eight years. She says the most rewarding part of her job is helping people have their dream vacation in Hawai‘i and, maybe, adding a special experience they didn’t even dream of.
