Today I want to talk about my favourite tour on Maui. You can split this tour in two for more enjoyment. After all you’ll explore one of the most spectacular coastal drives of the world. I liked the Road to Hana that much that I drove it three times. But before you go on this trip you should keep in mind that on this tour the road is the destination. Sure it… Weiterlesen

Today we will explore another part of Maui. In this post I will lead you to magnificent beaches, talk about sea mammals and reveal a „secret“ of a real spectacular sunrise.

Ok, I have to admit that it`s a while since I visited Maui, but back then I have cheched out this island thoroughly and feel able to tell you something about it. Maui`s nickname is the „Valley Isle“ and is actually divided in 2 parts that are connected through a broad and falt valley. The smaller northwestern part is where you will find most of the island. Between Lahaina and Kapalua are… Weiterlesen

Ok, I have to admit it’s been a while since I’ve been to Maui, but during that visit I did explore as much of the island as possible and therefore will be able to tell you something about it. One of Maui’s nicknames is the „Valley Isle“ and it actually consists of two parts that are linked by braod flat valley. It’s smaller northwestern part is the place where you will find… Weiterlesen

Today we will explore the south and the west of Kauai. You can look forward to a bunch of different highlights. So make yourself comfortable and enjoy reading. Wailua River and surroundings The Wailua River is the only river on the Hawaiian Islands, where ships can be used. If you are more of an active person you can book a guided canoe tour. For all of you that think this is too strenuous… Weiterlesen

Oahu’s south: Luxury in Kahala, nature in Hanauma Bay In todays post we will start again in Waikiki and go on a tour around Oahu. Diamond Head is the landmark of Honolulu. The crater of this dormant volcano offers a great view of the skyscrapers forming the skyline of Waikiki. You can ascent it by a toll road and go for a hike up there. Those who are ready for some exercise wil… Weiterlesen

I’d recommend to start your Hawaii vacation on Oahu. First of all there are the best flight connections coming from Europe. When you catch an early morning flight leaving Europe direction San Francisco or Los Angeles you should be able to make a connection to Hawaii and arrive in Honolulu in the early evening. This way jetlag isn’t so hard on you. The hotels on the islands are accustomed to receive their… Weiterlesen

In old Polynesian Hawai’i life must have a bit like living in paradise. Ok, probably only if you belonged to the right class. But I would assume that real stress was unknown. In this post I will talk about some cultural aspects you might already know from those cultural programs in hotels throughout the islands, but most likely don’t know their background and real meaning.  Lei: Like most traditions the Lei-Making has… Weiterlesen

Polynesian roots The Polynesian culture of the native Hawaiians fascinated me right from my first contact and I was trapped in admiration. It is so different from my European roots, but on the other side there are a lot of similarities with our pre-roman cultures. It’s based on the necessity to live in accord with mother nature and can teach us quite a lot in our time, where our technical progress has… Weiterlesen

When you do business with the Hawaiian Islands you will most certainly communicate in English, but soon you will realize that Hawaiians are using words you won’t understand right away. For a very long time the Hawaiian language and culture have been suppressed and anything Hawaiian was looked at as something uneducated natives would use. Today this has gratefully changed and Hawaiians can once again be proud of their very own history… Weiterlesen
