Off in the distance was the most beautiful sailing ship gliding majestically through the bay with soft sunlight reflecting off its billowing sails.

Unique Hawaii – A Local Expert Shares His Secrets

Unique Hawaii – A Local Expert Shares His Secrets

While millions of tourists descend on this gorgeous state every year, I believe too few ever venture far from their hotel’s beach or the tried-and-true tourist attractions to see the true beauty of the islands.
