A neat little video from Lux Films that features some of our favorite spots on the island.
I’ve always been intrigued by tilt-shift photography. Landscape photographer, Rafal Maleszyk, captured Hawaii beautifully in this timelapse. Love how the colors pop. This is as close as it gets to what Hawaii would look like if the Aloha State were zapped by Rick Moranis.PS: If you got that last reference, then you definitely grew up in the 80’s.
Looking to waste sometime before our flight home during a recent trip to the Big Island, Michelle and I visited the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden. I sold Michelle on the colorful, tropical fauna. All I really wanted see was Onomea Falls. The waterfall itself is very easy to access. It’s actually one of the first attractions that you’ll encounter as you work your way downhill and through the botanical garden.
Sushi Sasabune has been the only restaurant review on this blog for some time now. That’s about to change. We, at Exploration: Hawaii, eat out way too much to not offer our opinions about our many food adventures. What better restaurant to reignite our food reviews than the very popular Mario’s Sushi Bistro.
Exploration: Hawaii writer Marvin Chandra has been hitting the Hawaii festival scene very hard over the last couple of months. I decided to join him for the 2014 Vietnamese New Year’s Festival at Kapiolani Park. While Marvin decided to focus on the various performers at the festival, I paid a bit more attention to all of the delicious food for sale. I ended up tasting the avocado bubble drink from one of the food stands. It was so good that it was gone within a few minutes. Too bad the rain came, I would have stayed longer to taste more of the food.
