Hawaii.  It’s a beautiful paradise known by many around the world and, just as I had started my around the world adventure, I landed a job onboard a cruise ship allowing me to spend over a year of my life in this beautiful paradise.

The tropical birds, lush rain forests, unique people & killer surf made this place a dream come true, even going as far as pushing me to new boundaries.  Take a look at my favorite travel photos I had taken while visiting this beautiful chain of islands…particularly in Oahu.   Hopping from this island to Maui, the Big Island and all the way to Kauai I saw many magnificent things!
