Where to eat in Kihei

Hot, cold, black, green, herbal or caffeinated, spiced or sweet, there are many ways to sip and savor tea as well as how to prepare it.  Many of us immediately think of China or Britain when it comes to countries known for its tea production and consumption, but there are many other travel destinations that

One of the best things about going to an all-inclusive resort is being able to order whatever you want and trying new foods and drinks without worry. If you don’t like something, it’s okay to order something else or ask the bartender to surprise you after listing a few things you know you do like.

Happy Thanksgiving! In the US, we’re sitting down with family and friends today to give thanks and gorge on turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green beans, rolls, and more gravy than we have at any other time of the year. Since the holiday of eating everything in sight is upon us, I thought it’d be fun to
