This past week was my first-ever visit to Hawaii! An opportunity arose that I couldn’t ignore so I tied up loose ends at work and overpacked for my 6-hour flight (with 1 transfer) to The Big Island. I was invited to attend a Vegan Retreat hosted by Noah Hyams of Vegpreneur and Gaby Aziz of Heart Core Hotels. The retreat was held at Heart Core Hotels’ Volcano Eco Retreat in Hilo.
