chelseakauai So much fun the last two days! Boating with beauties @mahinaalexander and @liannaaa shooting for @thegirlandthewater #hanalei #noonefollowsmeformyface #hereitisanyway 1d
  •   sammartinsurf Come on now 1d
  •   hayleirae So so perfect 1d
  •   ginamari3 @chelseakauai hey, quick question as a hapa: did you ever feel different from a lot of ppl? I did growing up. I overcame it but it was a struggle. I just wanted to share. You seem like a great person. 20h
  •   chelseakauai @ginamari3 no I never felt that actually! Growing up in Hawaii it always seemed like the best of both worlds. Plus I wasn't really part of a minority since most people here are Caucasian, asian or some mix of the two. Glad you overcame that :) 19h
  •   ginamari3 @chelseakauai wow. In all honesty, ive been to hawaii about 6x that id rather live there because im accepted as a person. California is alright but i feel so much tension with judgment and racism that im excluded a lot you kno? But have a great time in hawaii. Your photos r everything i dream of doing someday. I support what you do so much. 19h
  •   chelseakauai @ginamari3 I'm sorry to hear that. Work hard and Hawaii is not that far to move to :) not an advocate of "running away" from problems or situations that make you uncomfortable, but we are in many ways products of our environment I don't see why you shouldn't live in one that make you feel beautiful and proud 19h
  •   ginamari3 @chelseakauai thank you. I agree with you 100%. Im currently in college and i did reach to a low point of depression due to my asian american studies class. But i went ahead in the book and it talked about how hapas are changing the world. (Strangers from a different shore - takaki) and i hope we frkn do! I hate how small minded ppl are becoming. Especially on social media, peers around me r becoming introverts and narcissistic. Im an introvert and extrovert. So i understand both sides. Im super blessed glad to just even be reaching to you. Thank you. #staydoinyouboo 19h

  •   shaunhondaphoto Read the write up by mizu, more girls (and guys) should aspire to live life in the ways you've described and seek more adventure and less fame. Keep up the great message! 16h
  •   chelseakauai @shaunhondaphoto wow don't even know what to say to that, mahalo! Just doing it for the love and hope to connect more people to nature along the way :) 15h
  •   shaunhondaphoto God bless you and your amazing vision! I grew up in Hawaii and could never imagine the experiences I've seen on your feed. Thank you for taking the time to respond and inspiring me. KIT. 14h

chelseakauai People teaching people. If I am remotely good at anything it's because someone far better showed me the way. @alohafrom808 and crew mahalo for teaching me well. The next night I rappelled a 115 foot inverted waterfall under the full moon with @travisburkephotography and @handsomerobinson. File both under experiences I'll never forget. #humanpoweredadventures #becauseIreallyneedYETanotherhobby #idratherbeexploring #hawaii #betheadventure #mizulife #waterfallwednesdays photo @liz_barney 1w

chelseakauai Froze my little rump off filming for @sony the last two days off Maui and Lana'i with @dyllazo. Although the weather has been cold and stormy, the underwater world here has been a stunning blend of archways, bait balls, and incredible clarity. A real treat to dive in. I wish I could share some of the footage with you guys, but this one Dylan took of me last week before we flew out will have to do :) #adventurerscollective #northwinds #kovey @kovey_ 3w

chelseakauai I think one of the greatest blessings in my life has been the stream of incredible teachers, in school and outside, who so patiently share their passions with me. Rad way to wake up on a rainy morning with @alohafrom808 and crew @kitt1047 @shibbystylee @liz_barney huge thank you for teaching @captain_potter and I the ropes! #addicted #peopleteachingpeople #luckywelivehawaii #hawaii #canyoneering #hikinghawaii #neverstopexploring #adventureunknown

chelseakauai After almost 3 weeks away this sure was a nice welcome home. Daily reminders why Kaua'i will always have my heart. #iPhone view that I just snapped from work. #bestplaceonearth #luckywelivehawaii #kauai #sunset 3w

chelseakauai There are no perfect words, I tried and the endless writer in me couldn't find them. I will say this: you are a rare and strange and wonderfully unanticipated gift. All I know is that being together feels like freedom. It's that moment when the fog rolls in and we both start running for the ridges. It's your ability to marvel at the simple things and share my exuberance for good food eaten in unusual and difficult to get to places. Thank you for knowing when I need your hand or I don't, and more for knowing me well enough to tell the difference. Happy birthday @captain_potter, let's keep chasing the light together #onedaylate #thatshowlongIthoughtaboutthis 3w

chelseakauai @sierrablaxmusic and I saying goodbye to four wet and wild days @wanderlustfest! A friend asked me to describe my experience and I said Crazy. Transcendent. Delicious. Windy. A huge thank you to @jasonnemer for making all my acro dreams come true. @nahkobear @noelanilove for your beautiful voices during @blissology's class. I still don't think any of us know what happened, but that was some of the most beautiful music and human energy I have ever felt in a single space. Also to all you instagrammers who came up and introduced yourself! Seriously made my day. And now back to the world of hot showers #wanderlust2015 #goodvibes 4w

chelseakauai This place looked like a painting. Sunset in Little Cottonwood Canyon with @courtneybrandonn @captain_potter and @huyutinkyu. Utah you have been good to us! I'm going to miss the smell of pine trees and waking up at sunrise to be first ones on the mountain. Oahu here I come!

chelseakauai Day 1: Flight delayed until 1AM. Power outage in the airport. Harrowing turbulence. Scaling the sketchiest icy incline. Hiking back in near darkness...To me, this is traveling and I love it all; the excitement, the sleeplessness, the beauty, and the unknown. Thank you @travisburkephotography for the inspiration to visit this magical zone and @captain_potter for getting such a rad shot in the one minute of light we had. And for giving me your gloves when my hands were froze. Can't wait to see what the next two weeks bring🌲@westcomb #humanpoweredadventures #donutfalls 1mon
