While I'm here, my thoughts on Hawaii. Incredible...if you get out of Honalulu. Honalulu represents everything i despise in a holiday. An overcrowded touristy concrete Metropolis with poluted, crowded beaches full of people that can't swim. And don't get me started on the food. It is near impossible to find a decent meal that doesn't contain my yearly fat content in one meal.
Elsewhere, incredible scenery, culture, people, surf and climate. Fortunately i managed to spend a week on the island of Kauai which was amazing. Remote, small, incredibly scenic, i only wish i had skipped Oahu completely to spend more time here. I will get round to posting more photos when i get the chance.
It reminds me a lot of Margaret River region down south yet with a tropical climate all year round! The older i get the more i realise I need the warmer climate to feel alive.
Does anyone else have one place that represents a place that they love and hate at the same time?
