Why You Need Travel Protection for Your Hawaii Vacation

Why You Need Travel Protection for Your Hawaii Vacation

Many people travel during their time away from life’s obligations. From visiting relatives to going abroad to see new lands, we tend to go and want to enjoy the trip to the fullest.

However, these things can happen. A flight becomes delayed or a medical emergency comes…

Hawaii Five-0 Facts

Hawaii Five-0 Facts

Popular televisions show Hawaii Five-0 isn’t just hugely entertaining because of its compelling storylines and nail-biting action, but also because of the fascinating facts it comes armed with.

Hawaiian Christmas Music for a Holiday on the Islands

Nothing sets the mood quite like Christmas music. You know the songs by heart: “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” “Merry Christmas, Darling,” “Twelve Days of Christmas”. There’s no need to reinvent such classic holiday staples. Artists like Henry Kapono and Keali’i Reichel know Christmas songs don’t need fixing, but adding a little Hawaiian flavor results in a savory Hawaiian Christmas music recipe.

Things to Do on Maui in December

Things to Do on Maui in December

Christmas on Maui may sound preposterous to some — from the outside looking in, the Valley Isle doesn’t exactly call to mind wintry holiday vibes — but December in Maui happens to be one of the most splendid times on the island. While the rest of the world may be experiencing some of the coldest days of the year, Maui sees remarkably beautiful weather (with just the right amount of bite and breeze), Humpback whales have returned to its shores,…

Forgetting Sarah Marshall Filming Locations (2008)

Forgetting Sarah Marshall Filming Locations (2008)

There have been a number of romantic comedies filmed in Hawaii, from 2004’s 50 First Dates to 2011’s Just Go With It (Adam Sandler can’t get enough of Hawaii – and who can blame him). However, writer and star of 2008’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall Jason Siegel (who’s best known for the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother) describes the film as a “romantic disaster movie”. While that might be fair to say of the plot, it couldn’t be…

‘The Songs of C&K’ – Good Time with Henry Kapono and Friends

‘The Songs of C&K’ – Good Time with Henry Kapono and Friends

It’s not easy becoming a household name in the islands, but Henry Kapono sure made it look that way. With a Grammy-nomination and countless Na Hoku Awards courtesy of the passion and diligence poured across 15 albums, it’s any wonder as to what Kapono can’t accomplish. These days the legendary artist has set his sights on something beyond him – the next generation of Hawaiian music stars. Kapono recently established the Henry Kapono Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting Hawaiian…
