Sunset at Haleakala – Solitude Among the Stars

Sunset at Haleakala – Solitude Among the Stars

You don’t expect to find peace standing on a volcano of all places. You think, maybe I’ll get a good photo of the sun or two, or a thousand. You think of (or forget) the lava way, way beneath you and when this hot spot might get going again, hopefully NOT in our lifetime. As popular Hawaiian myth goes, the volcano goddess Pele created the Hawaiian Islands through the forges of lava. Also according to legend, Haleakala – Maui’s dormant…

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,…

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…

Ekolu – Greatest Hits

Ekolu – Greatest Hits

If any group can be exclusively dubbed Maui’s pride and joy, it’s Ekolu. No other reggae band is synonymous with the local music scene. They practically put Maui on the map, paving the way for bands like Malino to rise in due time. Their roots are in the Valley Isle, but Ekolu’s influence extends across Hawaii. At any given moment, their songs are jamming on the radio or awaiting airplay by way of request. If music is something you feel, then Hawaii has…

Whale Watching in Hawaii

Whale Watching in Hawaii

You might think of whale watching in Hawaii as a rather peaceful activity. To see a whale surge out of the sea and fall back down in a massive splash is a beautiful sight. Some things are beautiful from a distance. To see a whale up close is rather scary. Let me tell you a real whale’s tale. A Maui Whale Watching Tale We were on a whale-watching boat off  Lahaina, Maui one morning, all the camera toting tourists were…
