They say one is the loneliest number, but not when you are the only hotel on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai. In fact, if I were to put my business education to work, one is a pretty great number when you are on the supply side of supply and demand equation. Hotel Molokai is truly […]

Kauai lodging

I walked into base camp covered in mud and sweat, carrying my camera and backpack. I must have looked exhausted to those around me as they stared at me bit too long. I couldn’t wait to clean up, get some food, and lay down to assess the day and fall into a deep, deserved sleep. […]

“Hello Ms. Ott.” A group of kids said to me as we passed by each other. As I continued to walk down the path I looked around and saw a group of students on the campus lawn basking in the warm Hawaiian sun, suddenly they started waving at me and yelling “Hello!”. I returned the […]
