Consider KailuaTown a hub to venture out from and discover many, many unique places unto themselves then return and discover places and people right in your front yard. Auntie Kim and Uncle Louie are just two friends of many you might meet; both with their own collection of acquaintances, friends and family. Kim can literally 'glance' at your cursive handwriting and provide a personality analysis. Louie a real Hawaiian can mesmerize you with talk-story about Kailua ... I mean old adventures during a time when Polynesians came ashore looking for the island king to overwhelm. You understand, about the time Kamehameha I or Kalani Paiʻea Wohi o Kaleikini Kealiʻikui Kamehameha o ʻIolani i Kaiwikapu kauʻi Ka Liholiho Kūnuiākea arrived, to be specific.
