Why are we going?

Why do anything exciting? We can't help but wonder whats out there. Maybe you've watched those National Geographic specials like we did as kids. Have you ever wanted to see the same things? There are many organizations that offer tours to see these wonders. And, while we're not discounting these tours (we both work for a tour company in Hawai'i), we're also students and can't afford these trips. But, you don't need a tour to see whats all around you. Just go out and EXPLORE! We want to promote that idea, and give you as many examples of how we went about doing it in our adventures. Maybe you'll be able to have the same satisfaction by viewing the plants and animals that we're documenting on this web-site.
