What do the Hawaiian Islands offer beyond beaches and sun? Well, there's plenty of history and culture.
On Hawaii's Big Island a traveler can see ongoing volcanic eruption of the Kilauea Volcano. The sight occurs from a ledge adjacent to the Jaggar Museum. Few places on earth offer the traveler such a presentation of this major geological phenomenon.
A kind of travel, which might be called "comfortable soft adventure" or "luxury adventure," has become the style of choice for an increasing number of travelers. Hawaii's island of Kauai is one of the better places on earth to experience this phenomenon.
For more than 30 years my four sisters and I, accompanied by our parents, spouses, significant others, and children, gathered for an annual summer family reunion.
Hawaii became available dependably and year round on the cruise scene, due to the commitment of Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) to position an American-flagged vessel, now Pride of America, in Hawaiian waters.
Kauai, Hawaii, is an unusual travel destination because many of the premier travel experiences are free or low cost, available to all.
Some of Hawaii’s top chefs got together to demonstrate their culinary and cultural passions. I was fortunate enough to be one of the tasters.
The joyful sensuality of life, with all its sexual, taste, sight, hearing, smelling, and feeling intensities, has always been epitomized for me by Hawaii.
