Hawaii is such a beautiful place that takes one back to our true roots – those bound in the gifts of nature, of wilderness and savage beauty.
It still amazes me that you can travel so far yet be in the US, while feeling like a world away.
The sunset on Haleakala took my breath away (I could also see my breath because it was so cold!).
It also provides a great reminder of how we shouldn’t take nature for granted – ever – and how we need to take notice of it all around us, all the time.
Hawaii gives you that little bit of everything – sunny skies, beaches, mountains, foggy rain and jungle, forest greens.
Look out for my new Travel Guide to Maui later this month!
