Aloha Hawaii

Yesterday I had the difficult task of saying goodbye to Oahu.

I think the island itself is a magical place, and full of wonderful, warm people and scenery.  It baffles my mind to think that people who have the opportunity and funds to live there don’t move there immediately.

I am excited about saying hello to New Zealand, but Oahu is a place I could easily see myself living once I finish this traveling stint.

I am posting my last few pictures from Hawaii here to round out this section of the trip.  These were photos taken during Kurt’s photography lesson that I liked.

Street Art

Honalulu’s Kakaako district is a place where street artists worldwide demonstrate their talents. Every year, the urban art collective Pow! Wow! brings creatives from around the world for an art festival, including live mural creation.  The district is covered in beautiful colors and is truly a sight to behold.

Afterwards, we explored Honalulu outside of Waikiki and the beach.  Kurt knows many of the side streets and secret beach access routes.

One of my favorite parts of Hawaii is the ability to stop for thirty minutes and spend some time in the beach.  Traffic?  Pull off and hang out on a beach until it clears up.  Just got Poke and need a view while you eat?  Beach.  Feeling a little warm and need to cool off?  Beach.

Not a bad life.
