Today is the last Monday in May, or, Memorial Day. It’s the day that Americans say to those who have fallen while serving in the US armed forces: We remember you, we honor your memory, we thank you. On Oahu, the Lantern Floating Hawaii event is a beautiful way to recognize those who sacrificed their […]

Today we say thanks. Not just for our surroundings in beautiful, magical Maui, but for all of you: The people who share so much with us during your visits over the years.  Today we remind ourselves that it’s that time that matters, and the stories.   Stories that serve as the soundtrack behind some of the […]

It’s fall here on Maui, which means that we’re watching geese fly in v-formation, and our winter flip-flops–or “slippers,” as they say in Hawaii–are on deck for roughing it during those sub-80-degree days.  Luckily, the expert hiking guides that lead Hike Maui guests through the rainforests will still have no trouble finding wild fruits along […]
