Maui, Hawaii, USA – Pt3

Continued from here So where next? Well I love to climb volcanoes, so I went up the volcano. As much as driving really is cheating, it was still a cool drive, and that hike would’ve taken an awful long time to walk. It definitely the most commercial volcano I’ve been on, with a little gift […]

Maui, Hawaii, USA – Pt2

Continued from here As we approached Hana there’s a little bundle of things to see. The village itself is cute, but not too exciting, so we grabbed some food at the street food stop just on the road back out of town. The food trucks here are a really good way to eat on a […]

New York (Part 2) – Blog from 2009

DAY 6 Today was the first day we really explored Williamsberg. A real haven of arty types, hippys and hipsters. This place is cooler than cool, it’s fuckin’ Ice Cold! Seriously though, the shops here are not like anywhere else I’ve seen, everything is made in some super cool ethically perfect warehouse nearby, it’s all […]
