The world as we know it!


Aloha! Welcome to My808 – our very own travel blog. We are fortunate to live in Hawaii but also like to travel and visit other fantastic places around the world, at least a couple of times a year. Living in Hawaii is expensive and we are regular workers, so our traveling budget is modest. We try to travel smart and take advantage of deals, connections, and offers as often as we can. If not, we wouldn’t be able to travel, and that would be hell. 😉

So why My808? What does that mean anyway? 808 is the area code of Hawaii – the whole state has the same area code. Simple yah!? We set out to blog about Hawaii, but realized we had so much else to write about, so many other unique experiences that we want to share. We like to explore the world. This is the world as we know it!

We used to have a Twitter/X account, but recently deleted it. We have no more presence on Twitter/X.

Mahalo for reading our blog!

Matt & Family

Btw, you might have noticed numerous posts about Swedish destinations. We have family there, and visit quite regularly. If you want to learn more about Sweden (and have an interest in cooking), you will enjoy this blog I recently stumbled upon. I don’t know the blogger and I have no relationship with that blog, but I think it’s genuinely written by an American living in Sweden.
