Unearthing Classic Articles from Previous Issues of The Voice Magazine

The recent images of devastation from wind-whipped wildfires on the Hawaiian island of Maui prompted us to sift through the archives for reference to that state of “Aloha Spirit.”

Those islands between Toronto and Sydney.  Travelling AU student Philip Kirkbride recounts his arrival on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.  “It wasn’t long after landing that I learned my first Hawaiian word. The shuttle bus at the airport is called Wiki Wiki meaning “quick-quick”, or very quick.”  The Travelling Student – Aloha!, March 27, 2015.  (Kirkbride’s Hawaiian adventures continue in The Rising Sun of Hawaii, and Taken for a Ride.)

You had me at “beach cam.”  The Voice‘s recurring online-resource column features links to Hawaiian beach cams, the history of hula, and education opportunities.  “You may not be able to do your homework on the beach—but doing it in front of a live beach cam is the next best thing. ”  Click of the Wrist:  Hawaii Dreaming, January 17, 2014.
