Stories of the Hawaiian Islands

The best way to experience a new place and culture is to listen to the amazing stories of the locals. In Hawaii, residents are extremely passionate about their homes, praising the land, the sea, and everything in between that makes them love living there. I stumbled upon a trove of wonderful accounts of the islands on called Stories of Hawaii.

Instead of simply text, the website features videos of everything from swimming with manta rays in Kona and surfing with the Waikiki Beach Boys to walking on one of the world’s most active volcanoes and the history of Pearl Harbor. The videos are narrated by friendly and engaging storytellers that’ll make you want to drop everything and head straight to Hawaii.

I hope you enjoy the stories as much as I did! Let us know if you’ve got a story of your own to tell, and if you do, be sure and submit it to their site.

    An all-around field guide intended for the curious traveler, this handbook features color illustrations of commonly-encountered birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, and coral reef creatures. It also includes a good introduction to Hawaii, its natural history and conservation. It’s a well written overview of just about everything natural you are likely to see, which like the other volumes in the series, showcases the author’s ostentatiously bad sense of humor. It’s rife with puns.
    Missing Hawaii is a site for those who love to travel to Hawaii or dream of living in Hawaii. The site is meant to both evoke the aloha spirit as well as provide interesting information about the Hawaiian islands and practical advice for planning a Hawaiian vacation or a move to Hawaii. From Oahu to Maui and beyond, you can find information on hotels, Hawaiian culture and relocating. Missing Hawaii also offers its own Hawaiian products for sale, as well as those available through Hilo Hattie’s. Mahalo!
