Maui’s Bamboo Forest

On the island of Maui there is a bamboo forest that is a great day hike! Enjoy amazing scenery, a picturesque waterfall, and, of course, the bamboo forest! The scenery consists views over of a lush rain forest… The waterfall is so tall and you get so close to it, that it’s hard to even fit in in a picture… and the bamboo forest is just really interesting to be a part of – you might feel like a little ant walking through huge blades of grass.

If you’ve been to Asia, then you know that massages are offered on every corner – foot massage, upper-body massage, full-body massage, Thai massage, etc… but the one that was new to me was the “fish massage.”  All over Asia there are huge fish tanks in the malls and on the streets and in the tanks there are small, hungry,

Random Camping

Praying Mantis Birth

  Do you know how a baby Praying Mantis is born? Neither did I until just recently… While camping on Maui, I noticed a cocoon on my rental car antenna.  I didn’t think much of it until one night I witnessed it coming alive! At first, it had small webs and small little creatures coming from the bottom.  Soon, it

West Maui

Lahaina. Has the largest Banyan tree in the U.S. – and it’s sitting right in the middle of town!  It’s really something special that you should check out. Ioa Valley. Don’t plan a whole day for this small park.  It’s pretty to see, but not much to do.  It’s not too far out of the way, so just take a quick look and move on.  Tip: Park on
