Kanu_Hawaii _6102041305_e19328dd35_b

“90% imported. 90% imported.” As I drove around visiting Greenwell Farms, Hamakua Mushrooms, Volcano Winery; as I had conversations with folks at hotels and looked a restaurant menus, I still found it crazy that 90% of produce to Hawaii is imported. It is crazy! Coming from California where produce – fresh and local – is […]

Hawaii – Volcano Winery

Inside Volcano Winery Tasting Room

Living in the San Francisco Bay Area with famous wine neighbors like Napa and Sonoma it is easy to take wineries for granted. And although there are wineries in every state now (really, I looked it up) that doesn’t always mean they are good! So when I received my itinerary for my trip to Hawaii […]

Hawaii: Hamakua Mushrooms


Ever had a super-fresh mushroom? Good, right? A luxury item? Maybe not.  But if you live in the Hawaiian islands, a fresh mushroom used to be unthinkable. Enter Bob Stanga.  Gentlemen farmer (with an interior designer wife) who just wanted to grow something in Hawaii.  Lucky Hawaiians, he chose mushrooms. The result?  Hamakua Heritage Farms […]

As I wrote before this place has a special place in my heart and I woke refreshed […]

Traveler Tuesday – David of Death to the Stock Photo


We all hate stock photography, but it is kind of a necessary evil.  I deal with it with my day job all the time.  I use stock photography here as well and try to be as selective as possible. Now there is something new and exciting.  I joined Death To The Stock Photography several months […]

I poked around and picked up a small breakfast consisting of a […]

Hawaii: There and Back Again

Kohala Coast Hawaii

As I prepared for my trip to Hawaii, one that I took courtesy of the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau, I briefly shared a little bit about my previous trips in a post I did about islands and how they make me feel. So when I woke up [early!] to get to the airport I […]

San Francisco Profiles – San Francisco’s Lower Haight with Anthony


It has been so fun doing this series!  I am getting to know all my friends secret hideouts! San Francisco is such an amazing city, one that is ever changing and I love discovering a new little corner every week.  Seeing these “villages” from a local perspective has made me really appreciate this method of […]

You can’t beat the Miami heat


No, not that Heat, the other kind! Miami is hot. Filled with palm trees and supermodels, this Florida paradise is flashy and fierce. Miami restaurant and hotels are some of the best in the world, and the entertainment is second to none. From the infamous stretch of coast known as South Beach to the Bugattis and […]

AFAR Experience Seattle – Day 3 Coffee and a View


Sunday morning bright and early the AFAR Experiences group headed to Caffé Vita Coffee Roasting Company in Capitol Hill to talk a little coffee and a little pot.  Not the pot you pour your coffee into, but marijuana. To start, we were offered a cup of delicious green roasted Caffé Vita coffee as we waited […]
