About Me

Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Pic of the Day: Elvis was Here

On our last trip to Kauai e indulged in a daylong tour of island film and tv locations. Those places we've seen in films like Jurassic Park and King Kong as well as tv shows such as Fantasy Island or Gilligan's Island.

If you're  a little on the "older" side you probably spent a portion of your life listening to the music of Elvis Presley, and you may recognize the below as the setting for the film Blue Hawaii. The Coco Palm Resort, where much of the film was shot, has been closed for years after being heavily damaged by hurricane Iniki.

The resort may have some life left in it after decades of neglect and court battles. It is now hoped to reopen some time in 2017.

But until then, we have the movies the remember it by.
