Podcast Episode 2: Hawaii

Welcome to the Window Seat Podcast!
In this episode of the Window Seat Podcast, sponsored by Travelocity, host Amy Ziff takes off to Hawaii.

There are eight islands that make up the Aloha State: Hawaii (also known as “The Big Island”), Oahu, Kauai, Maui — and the lesser-known islands of Molokai, Lanai, Niihau and Kahoolawe. In this episode we’re focusing on the four most popular islands.

You’ll learn about the early history of the Big Island, get swept away on a romantic trip to Kauai, hear from a travel expert about the best kid-friendly spots to check out wildlife on Maui, and get a native’s tour of Oahu beaches.

Hawaii’s Story [7:52]

When I visit Hawaii, I like exploring the prehistoric landscape. It makes me wonder what the island was like before skyscrapers, hotels and tourists — before Western contact. How did people live? Reporter Laurel Moglen uncovered Hawaii’s story.

Swept Away [8:16]

Have you ever dreamed about getting away from it all and jetting off to a tropical island for a little romance with your significant other? Reporter Apryl Lundsten did — and fell in love with Kaua’i.

Hawaii is teeming with wildlife — in fact, last year scientists discovered more than a hundred new species of marine life in the Hawaiian Islands, from sea stars to clams to invertebrates. So where can you take the kids to see Hawaii’s critters? Reporter Laurel Moglen talked to Keli’i Brown, Spokesperson for the Maui Visitor’s Bureau, and found the Island’s wild side.

A Day at the Beach [7:39]

Hawaii’s most famous landmark is the beach. Reporter Apryl Lundsten spent a day at the beach in Oahu.

My name: Amy is my name, but I'll answer to Ame, Ames or Aimee.

How I earn my keep: My beat is travel, but my passion is collecting stories from people I meet on the road.

Hotel I could move into: Must I pick only one?! The Palacio Duhau a Park Hyatt in Buenos Aires tops my list. For the stunning restoration of the palace and tasteful new tower that create a thoughtful intersection of old and new. Every public and private space captivates. I'd move for the grand Alvear entry as much as for the manicured garden. For the wine and cheese tastings, the dulce de leche, the art gallery, the flower shop and for all the careful attention to detail that went into creating a hotel that is transcendent. If I were to pick a hotel that most felt like me, it would be The Inn at the Manor in the Cotswolds. Oh, I could definitely live there curled up with a book in a leather chair in the bar or outside among the English wildflowers. If I wanted to live in a land far away, the Ngoro Ngoro Crater Lodge would make a unique home with a view of the crater floor from every room (including the loo!), sumptuous beds, endless roses and the most unusual neighbors - massive water buffalo who won't bother you if you stay close to your Maori guide.

If I won the lottery, I'd live in: A historic farmhouse with an enormous barn and hundreds of acres tucked into a small town in New England or a Malibu beach house with stunning views and the surf just steps away. On second thought, winning the lottery means I could jet from coast to coast and enjoy them both.

Favorite way to get around: By foot. Whether in the city or country, I find the best way to get to know someplace is ambling around to discover and sample the distinct sights, sounds, smells, and tastes a place has to offer.

View that took my breath away: Looking toward the sky in Arusha and watching black and white Colobus monkeys scramble among the treetops, jumping from one tree to the next, floating through the sky like a primate version of Superman. Monkeys know how to have a good time!

My most beloved place in the whole world is: The place I visited last. What can I say? I'm fickle.
