Three weeks of sun, relaxation and food in Hawaii and I am in warmth withdrawals, it has been a month since we have been back home.  We had such a fantastic trip and we will return.  Hawaii offers something for everyone from the beautiful quiet beaches of North Oahu and the islands, to bustling Waikiki, food trucks and fancy restaurants and then you can can throw a volcano into the mix.  Don't just treat it as a stop-over, it is a great destination.

Although we were there in peak summer both American and Australian school holidays we managed to escape the crowds on Oahu by heading north and spending a few days on Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.

Waikiki was bustling and bursting with activity, lots of fun and of course shopping.

Hope you have the chance to visit this beautiful place.
