Not specific to our annual Hawaii trips, but my suitcase ALWAYS has an assortment of ziplock bags. Those things can really come in handy for ALL sorts of things!Besides the basics clothes, swimwear and sunscreen... is there anything you were super glad you packed for Aulani or wish you brought? We are DVC
This. Thank you for posting about the reef-safe sunscreen. I think it is so important to keep this in mind.Please bring REEF safe sunscreen if you plan on any ocean swimming, playing. it's been found that much of the coral reef deaths in Hawaii are from chemical sunscreens. Or you can buy that once you land in Hawaii.
Yes! I always, always pack my large Tervis mug or now I have a Yeti!!! And those things ROCK!!!Frozen cup (I think that's what they were called). The ones that has double wall that will keep beverage cold? It's so awesome to be able to keep my diet coke and white wine cold.
I had that weird rash thing happen one trip to Maui. Never had it happen before. The super sweet gal that runs the cabanas at our resort there sent me to the towel hut where they sold sunglasses and high end sunscreen. Can't remember the brand but it was a zinc oxide one (all I use now), so with the new sunscreen and with some Benadryl by mouth at night and a little cortisone cream, I was good to in a little over 24 hours!I wished I had brought more aloe and cortisone cream! I'm usually very careful with sunscreen but we still managed to get burn. I also broke out in a weird sun rash that I'd only had happen once before, but assume it was due to the intense sun in Hawaii. Cortisone cream is the only thing that helped.
