New York



  • From underwater to soaring through her skies, we loved to see Maui from every angle. This is a video teaser of all we did on the small island.
  • Three stories of “Ha” – or how we discovered the Aloha spirit while in Maui.
  • Less than two hours after landing at the Maui airport, we took off again on an excursion so see the coast of Maui from above.
  • And our sunrise curse continues! After being disappointed in Angkor Wat and Tikal for not being able to see the first morning rays, it happened again in Maui.
  • Our guide Curtis must have the best job in Maui – kayaking and snorkeling. He might just have the best job in the world.
  • I was given just enough time to get panicky about paragliding, but not enough time to refuse. Discover how it went,
  • Take a look at some of our favorite Photos Along the Road to Hana.
  • Eighteen postcards from Maui that capture the magical moments we enjoyed while on the island.
  • On our next visit to Hawaii, we discovered the “old” Hawai’i on the majestic island of Moloka’i.
  • On what very well might be our most interesting visit to the state of Hawai’i, we gained restricted access to the former leper settlement of Kalaupapa on Moloka’i, one of the most beautiful places on the islands — which also served as a prison.
  • For an introverted cat lover, it does not get better than the Lanai Cat Sanctuary.
  • We went SNUBA diving in Lanai, a sport that balances the safety net of snorkeling with the depths of scuba diving. It’s a solution for the fearful yet curious!
  • Another round of stunning Hawaii Postcards! These are our favorite photographs of Molokai, Lanai, and Maui — Three different islands; one beautiful spirit.


Great American Waterways

  • In which Dalene embarks on her longest solo journey to-date and takes some better-than-she-thought photos of Great American Waterways on a small ship cruise.
  • Did you know you could cruise the Great Lakes? Neither did we until Dalene took a small ship adventure and explored some fantastic American cities — all by boat!
