Bethany Hamilton - Soul Surfer

Posted by Kohana on 3/31/2010

I remember when I was in Kauai several years ago, watching the local news and hearing that a young 13-year-old local surfer, Bethany Hamilton, had been attacked by a shark. She had survived but lost one of her arms.

World's Best Coffee

Posted by Kohana on 3/14/2010

Today I began my day with a wonderful cup of Kona Coffee. There is no other coffee in the world quite like this coffee, for me at least. It's rich, dark, smooth and delicious. Kona coffee was first planted in the fertile volcanic soil of the Big Island of Hawaii in 1828. It is now grown on the western slopes of Manua Loa, which is the largest active volcano on the earth. it's' a beautiful area that looks down upon the coastline of the Big Island and to the deep blue Pacific ocean.

Upcountry Maui

Posted by Kohana on 3/4/2010 to Hawaii

In his article he said that most tourists come to experience the beautiful beaches in Maui, and there are plenty to go around since there eighty-one beaches on the island! Mr. Warner suggested that visitors take a couple of days out of their stay on the island and explore Maui upcountry. "Up here, you get pines instead of palms, the scent of lavender instead of the smell of the sea.
