Road to Hana

Road to Hana

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. This time we decided to follow directions in Andrew Doughty’s Maui Revealed guidebook. On the way we saw many people carrying this guidebook – “the blue book”, how it’s…

Lulumahu Falls Trail

Lulumahu Falls Trail

Lulumahu Falls Trail is about 2-2.5-mile round trip of moderate difficulty. This adventurous hike through the bamboo forest ends at a fantastic little piece of paradise with a swimmable waterfall. The trail is located on private land, owned by the Honolulu Board of Water Supply, and technically a permit is needed to hike here. Most people don’t obtain the permit. Be aware that the trail is unmarked and hard to follow. I hope this guide will help you find your way…

Molokai Day 3 – Kalaupapa Peninsula and Pala’au State Park

For the third and final day of our Family of Five’s Journey to Molokai, we planned an unhurried trip to what is in many ways the heart and soul of the Friendly Isle. A visit to Molokai is not complete without visiting the Kalaupapa Peninsula or at least spending time at the lookout to contemplate its history. Our family left the vacation condo at Molokai Shores and drove north on Kalae Highway for about 20 minutes before arriving at Pala’au State…

Lanikai Pillbox Hike is an easy, pleasant and beautiful trail, located in the prestigious neighborhood of Lanikai, on the east side of the island of Oahu. It’s also known as Kaiwa Ridge Trail. Lanikai means “heavenly sea”, and this scenic trail depicted exactly that: clear blue ocean with the iconic Mokulua islands as its backdrop. From the start of the hike to the second pillbox is 0.6 mile. People usually turn around at the second pillbox, however, it is possible…

Molokai Day 2 – Dixie Maru Beach, Papohaku Beach, Halawa Valley

Molokai Day 2 – Dixie Maru Beach, Papohaku Beach, Halawa Valley

The second day of our Family of Five’s Journey to Molokai. After a satisfying night of peaceful sleep, we were ready to explore Molokai!  The girls wanted to check out the beach along the property edge of Molokai Shores. We soon discovered that this was an unusual spot. Rather than proper sand, this was a mud beach. Every step was met with the interesting sensation of warm mud squishing between our toes. The water was very shallow so our ocean…

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…

Filmed in Hawaii – Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Filmed in Hawaii – Kong: Skull Island (2017)

There have been many versions of 1933’s King Kong, the classic story about a giant ape who falls for a human woman. The best known are 2005’s epic re-imagining of the same name and 2017’s action-packed Kong: Skull Island. And while each movie is a different take on the story, there’s just as big a contrast between their backdrops. Like the original, they both take place on “Skull Island” – a fictional prehistoric land in the Pacific. To bring to…
