I've mentioned before it's my dream to go to Hawaii.
More over I'm pretty sure I'd never come back to Poland ever again.
There's just something magical in these islands.. it's like a paradise on earth.
Don't you think life must be a lot easier when it's sunny and warm all year long? When you have the opportunity to go to the beach, put your feet under the warm sand, swim in the ocean and just be in that very moment. I could never get bored by it.

State Of Hawaii

The state is the 50th and most recent state to have joined the United States of America, having received statehood on August 21, 1959. Hawaii is the only U.S. state located in Oceania and the only one composed entirely of islands.

There are 8 main Hawaiian islands, seven of which are permanently inhabited.

The Islands

  • OAHU - home to the famous Waikiki Beach. Oahu’s largest city, Honolulu (“protected bay” in Hawaiian), is also the largest city in Hawaii, the county seat, the state capitol, and the center of business and industry in the Islands. Oahu’s official flower is the ʻilima. The island’s official color is yellow.

  • MAUI - Temperatures on Maui range from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit year-round, although the slopes of Haleakala Crater often see lows of 40 degrees. The lowest recorded temperature on Haleakala was 14 degrees Fahrenheit. Maui’s official flower is the loke lani (pink cottage rose). Maui’s official color is pink.

  • KAUAI - has a reputation as home to the wettest spot on Earth — Mount Waiʻaleʻale, averaging 485 inches of rain per year — has led to its popular designation as “The Garden Isle,” the island has another, older name: “The Separate Kingdom.” Kauai’s official flower is the mokihana (green berry). The island’s official color is purple.
  • THE BIG ISLAND - Covering 4,028 square miles, the Big Island (or the “Orchid Isle”) is the youngest and largest of the Hawaiian Islands — twice the size of all the other major Islands combined. And with two of the five volcanoes that created the island still active, it continues to grow. The Big Island’s official flower is the lehua ʻohiʻa. The island’s official color is red.

  • LANAI - alternately known as Hawaii’s “Most Secluded Island” and “The Pineapple Island” (it once hosted the world’s largest pineapple plantation), Lanai is home to a mere 5,000 residents. Lanai’s official flower is the kaunaʻoa (yellow and orange air plant). The island’s official color is orange.
  • MOLOKAI - is often referred to as the “Most Hawaiian Island” because it has the largest percentage of native Hawaiian residents in the state. Molokai’s official flower is the white kukui tree blossom. The island’s official color is green.

  • NI'IHAU - the island is privately managed by brothers Bruce and Keith Robinson, access is restricted to those who have permission from the island's owners. (how lucky are they right??)
  • KAHO'OLAWE - the smallest of the eight main volcanic islands in the Hawaiian Islands. Kahoʻolawe is located about seven miles (11 km) southwest of Maui and also southeast of Lanai.

It's amazing there, right? Would you want to visit Hawaii?
Or have you already been there? (in wich case I'm so freaking jealous)
Don't be afraid to tell me in comments.
See you, I hope. xx
