The Highs and Lows of Hilo

Let's start with the finish: Until you've seen Hilo, you really haven't seen the Big Island of Hawaii. This is where most people of Hawaiian descent live and where the lush tropical greenery is astounding.  The downside—and the reason it's so beautiful—is that it rains like a big dog, about 200 inches per year. A former downside—volcanic smog, called vog—is no longer present, since the volcano goddess Pele put a cork in her blowhole earlier this year, revealing blue skies for the first ti...

Man falls into active volcano

When safety rails are located at the edge of a volcano, they are there for a reason On Wednesday night, a man fell 70 feet into the caldera of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, the island’s most active volcano, which famously erupted for three months in 2018 and released the equivalent of 320,000 swimming pools of magma, says Science. The most surprising part of the incident isn’t, however, the man’s lapse in judgement but that he’s still alive. According to the official statement of the Hawaii Volca...

King Kamehameha never had it so good: Have a Royal Hawaiian celebration without breaking the bank.

No doubt being the king of all the Islands had its perks—but not near the luxury and creature comforts available these days to us common folk.  And—here's the kicker—if you are planning an event for a group (say six to twelve people) you will be surprised at how affordable a luxury villa  or beachside enclave can be. For the per-person price that a couple pays for a pretty-nice condo or resort room, a group of ten or so can chill at a pad that could be a movie set.Of course, you can also spe...
