  • A Story of Hula

    Destination: Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, Oahu

    story of hula video title screenSince moving to Hawaii nearly 14 years ago and getting to know hula a little more as each month tears off the calendar, I am starting to entertain the idea of joining a halau (troupe). I think what gets me is the sacredness that hula practitioners exhibit in their skill. As they extend their arms and reach their hands my way, I feel inexplicably drawn to their story. In a way, it's like I'm being hypnotized. Or I'm falling down a rabbit hole and entering another realm.

The plan was for Anthony to drop me off and continue on his way with the other eight or 10 passengers to the lush side. They would dip in and out of a half-dozen sea caves, cruise through a waterfall or two, hear Anthony share the history and legends of the place and utter the words—beautiful, gorgeous, spectacular.

  • Guest Blogger Keryn Means: Redefining Family Travel in Hawaii

    Destination: Kauai

    toddler swimming under water by keryn meansThe clear blue water lapped over my feet as I sat in my beach chair just off-shore. The mountains towered behind me and a palm tree lent a little shade. From this vantage, I could see my toddler in his goggles diving under water again and again, smitten by the fish. I watched as my husband threw our little guy into the air and heard his squeals of glee. This was why we had come to Kauai—for uninterrupted family time. As I thought about how much we all were benefiting in this break from the norm, my aunt walked over and plopped down in a chair next to me. She smiled, and her lips said it all. This was paradise, and we were living it together.
