About Myself

This collection is about my passion for everything and anything to do with Hawaiian lifestyle, adventure, food and travel.

I live almost full time in Hawaii when I'm not out traveling the world for a variety of projects. I've explored many beautiful areas around the state and love sharing the stunning landscapes, small towns and unique locations on each island that are exciting and always changing every day. I hope you enjoy these posts of the Hawaiian islands - I'll keep adding more photos and experiences daily.

Last, if you also like reading more about my travels and photography, please check out my website, called Travel Photo Discovery below

*Snorkeling the Kona coast and cruise*

One of the best ways to enjoy the Big Island is to take a cruise and outfitter, Body Glove does some fantastic coastal cruises. I took a morning cruise with my nephew and niece to the Captain Cook area. Gorgeous scenery, spinning dolphins, green turtles and amazing snorkeling with tropical fish everywhere. Check out this fun tour below of our morning cruise experience.

A green sand beach on the Big Island

Yes you heard right, the southern part of the island is where you will find the green sand beaches and the biggest one called Papakolea. It's a hike about a three hour round trip along the shoreline to get there and back. Or you can go on some of the pickup trucks doing roundtrip loops for a donation.

You can check out the landscape of the coastline and the beach on my post below

A visit to Polulu Valley in Hawaii island

The coastal drive along the west side of Hawaii island is lush with green valleys and hills and at the end lies Polulu valley with its long and expansive black sand beach. The hike down to the bottom is relatively tame and you get to the beach in no time.

Check out some more of my highlights and visit to the black sand beach of Polulu valley below

Ummmmm delicious mangosteen

Have you ever tried this amazing fruit? It is one of the tropical fruits grown in Hawaii with a very short shelf life so when you see them in the farmers markets or other specialty markets, by them because they are only in season for such a brief time frame and worth the effort.

I share many of my favorite tropical fruits and when they are in season in this post below, check them out if you want to try something beyond bananas and pineapples.

What does everyone see with a giant furry dog dancing in a local event in Hawaii. It's a live and let live lifestyle celebrating an eclectic mixture of culture, people, food and events and creating a melting pot society.

We love to celebrate the mundane and to the unusual and everything else in between in Hawaii and living here is always fun and colorful - you'll just have to visit Hawaii to see it in real life!
