Kauai, Hawaii

Often times, when deciding on a travel destination, it’s best to choose places not typically mentioned and be treated to wonderful surprises when you get there.  Before setting my sights on Kauai I did not imagine experiencing such a diverse terrain of changing landcapes, going from varying beaches one moment to lush exotic jungles in the next, and even to Grand Canyon-like geology.  With this introductory post I am sharing with you a few photos from each location on this beautiful little island, to be followed by more in depth posts over the course of the following weeks.  For now, I hope you enjoy these brief glances of the charms of Kauai, HI.

Happy wandering!
