Support Tohoku Earthquake Victims!

Do you want to support the victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, and at the same time know exactly where the money goes? The Tohoku Donation page was created to do just that, support the victims of the earthquake/tsunami but also enable donators to track where the money goes.

Hanalei Bay

A few weeks back this Hanalei Bay was flooded. Everything that looks like a green field was filled with brown water. It was the second most rain in an area in US history.

Though things had dried up since then, some places beyond Hanalei Bay were still not reachable by road.

Morning Run

During our stays in Kauai I usually run a few times in the early morning. A beautiful stretch along the water. Crossing a beach and over some sandy and rocky cliffs and back.

When I’m lucky, I meet a friend on the beach. This year I was lucky.


Arriving at Poipu Plantation we were met by a tree full of mangos. Though they won’t be ready to eat during our stay.
