How Far I’ll Go

As the Instagram states, and you should corroborate this statement by checking me out there @earlybirdadventures or using the nifty button at the bottom of this fabulous entry to check it out, last weekend I did a thing.   As I am sure you all know, because you are all hanging on my every blog…

Manta Rays of Light

So, I am late…… again but at least I am consistent in that…. Being late that is. So, what I have for the blog this week is something a bit different but not entirely out of my genera of storytelling. I made a video, which takes me a million hours to do it seems. In…

A Hula History

Hula dancers tell a story with their hands and this is a story of conservation of island and culture

The Land of Rainbows

Here you see the rainbow bridge that leads in and out of Haleiwa depending on which way you’re headed, but sometimes its hard to know which direction to go…… Ok, so I’m a day late. Technically, I finished this before midnight on Wednesday, it just won’t be released until Thursday while I am at work,…

The blog is making its return this week, so the 7 or so of you who read my blog and have been waiting on tenterhooks for what is to come next, this one is for you. Here is an update of what I have been off doing for the month of October after my triumphant…

Vote for my Video!

Hi everyone, This week I did not write a blog because I dabbled in another form of story telling. Last weekend I ran my first ever long distance race, it was a 25K, which is approximately 15 miles and lo and behold, I did not die. The only reason I am standing here today after…

Crouching Lion, Hidden Ramen

Cheers to the friends we make, cheers to the ones who will travel with you, call you when they can’t be there traveling, and will entertain all your silly ideas of traveling and give you more. Cheers to the friends who wake up before dawn to hike mountains and canyons with you, who will find…

Lava’ing in the Moment

There is a place where the stairs meet the sky, where the mountain opens on to a vista of the whole of Honolulu, the view is awe inspiring and you are closer to the shining tropical sun than ever before. But because you are so close to the sun, you are also sweating through every…

On Top of the World and Under the Sea

As promised I give to you, a play by play of a casual weekend on the island of Oahu. Oahu rose from the sea out of the mouth of a volcano and around it, the mountains, reefs and forests formed; with them came magic forest spirits and mermaids. Magic still exists on this island but…
