Kauai, Hawaii Cinematic Short Film

Featured Video Play Icon

I was born in Hawaii, and ever since I left at the age of six, I’ve been longing to go back.

I’d hoped to go last year, but it didn’t work out.

This year, I was determined to make our trip to Hawaii happen.

We visited Kauai, known as “The Garden Island”, earlier this month and had an unforgettable trip packed with unbelievable sights.

Part of the trip involved camping and a tough hike. The hike didn’t go quite according to plan. I talk more about what happened in an episode 447 of the seanwes podcast, titled Sean’s Adventures in Hawaii).

But we did get to go on an epic helicopter tour around the island, and words simply cannot describe the beauty.

I look forward to sharing more of my photos soon.

In the mean time, I put together a cinematic short film to share some of the experience.

This video is published on a brand new YouTube channel.

I created this new YouTube channel to document my sabbatical year. If you want to join me on my travels in 2020, be sure to subscribe to the new YouTube channel to follow the journey.

We are traveling to Hawaii in September, 2019 during one of my Seventh Week Sabbaticals. I work six weeks and take off every seventh week as a sabbatical. Sabbaticals have completely revolutionized my life.

I chose the island of Kauai for our vacation because it is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. It’s known as the garden island. Parts of Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park were filmed on Kauai.

I love beaches, and I love mountains, and Kauai is everything in one package. Continue reading “Hiking the Na Pali Coast Trail to Kalalau Beach in Kauai, Hawaii”
