If you’re out strolling Kalakaua Avenue along Waikiki Beach, as you no doubt will be some afternoon in between lunch and happy hour on your next visit to Oahu, you’ll no doubt stop at the Duke Kahanamoku statue to pose for a selfie or family photo with the Duke or drape a lei on his outstretched arms or around his neck.

Wild West Pahoa Town

Wild West Pahoa Town

Header photo credit Scott Hess; original photo cut and enlarged. Deep in the forests of the Big Island lies Pahoa Town – a sleepy little cowboy town, its sidewalks made of hundred-year-old planks of wood left over from a bygone time. A few old hippies wander around the streets, also left over from a bygone era. Pahoa Town’s rustic colorful buildings look like fake storefronts for a western movie, but they are real and still used as homes and businesses….

Road to Hana Itinerary

Road to Hana Itinerary

We traveled on Road to Hana two times in the past. One of those times, long time ago, we bought a self-guided tape and followed all the directions and made all the stops recommended on it. Another time, we stopped less and drove faster so that to spend more time in ‘Ohe’o Pools. As this was our third time, we knew what exactly we wanted to revisit, plus we leafed through one of Maui Guidebooks we found in our vacation condo to…

Filmed in Hawaii: Jurassic World (2015)

Filmed in Hawaii: Jurassic World (2015)

If you’re as familiar with 1993’s Jurassic Park as I am, then you’ll know that Hawaii is no stranger to prehistoric monsters. It’s also home to filming locations for The Lost World Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic Park III (2001) – the second and third films in the series. More recently, though, 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World was also filmed in Hawaii. In fact, the fourth film covered more Hawaiian ground than any of its predecessors. And while the new park doesn’t last long once…

Let’s Go to a Hawaiian Luau

You smile as a Hawaiian girl puts a plumeria lei around your neck. It’s your first Hawaiian Luau and you’re excited. Wearing your new lei, you walk onto the wide lawn where a 100 people, mostly in flowery shirts, are sitting at tables waiting for the Kalua Pig and the big hula show. There’s the Polynesian Stage, with the wide, silver ocean behind it and the big red sun hanging above the water. You step into the bustling dinner grounds…

Filmed in Hawaii: TV Series Lost (2004 – 2010)

Filmed in Hawaii: TV Series Lost (2004 – 2010)

In the popular TV series Lost, the survivors of a plane crash are forced to unite to overcome the mystifying threats of the island on which they’re stranded. From the beginning, the sci-fi hit relied heavily on intrigue to draw in viewers. But the fact that it was filmed in various locations throughout Oahu in Hawaii for its entire six-year-run is no mystery. The pilot episode opens with the characters finding themselves on a seemingly-deserted island beach in the wake…

Na Pali Coast With Holo Holo Charters Catamaran

Na Pali Coast With Holo Holo Charters Catamaran

Na Pali Coast of Kauai has unspoiled nature that is otherworldly. Its sky-high mountain peaks, raising directly from the ocean, and cascading waterfalls look ethereal. Due to the steep cliffs and the faraway location, this 15-mile coastline at the northwest of the island of Kauai remains one of the most beautiful and unspoiled in the world. One can only imagine, that 5 million years ago these mountain cliffs were hot flames that the Earth was spewing up. “Na Pali” means…
