I’ve been rationalising my photo collection. A big part of it are the trips I took with my wife (before kids) to Oahu, Hawaii.
A great place to visit even though it’s over 18 hours from here in the UK. The temperature is nearly constant all year round, it has a great mix of upscale americana mixed with desert island cool and quiet.
The vista of Diamond Head dominates Waikiki and Honolulu.
Waikiki beach is the bustling base for most who visit the island. In itself it’s a great place, but as soon as you break out and visit the North shore, the real Hawaii reveals itself.
Picture postcard perfect spots such are Lanikai Beach are often almost deserted. Many North shore beaches are during the summer months when the surf is almost non-existent.
During winter time, the temperatures stay almost the same, but the winds change and generate the amazing surf that is world famous
Couple all that time at the beach with amazing scenery in the interior and historic buildings, great people and and drink while the sun sets, it’s the perfect place for me.
