I'm from Hawaii. Hawaii is the southern most point of the USA. There are many wonderful things to see in Hawaii. Some of them are:
Green sand beach
Red hot lava (when it's flowing) - close up it is so hot you have to shield your face while you dip your finger in.
Waipio/Waimanu Valley - great camping
Things to do:
surf, camping, swim at waterfalls, surf, eat fresh mangoes off the tree, pick coconuts, surf, did i say surf. :D
I stay on a wwoofing/work exchange farm and they are always looking for more people.
My interests are surfing, vegetarianism, bhakti yoga, camping, guitar, and writing. I hope to meet some interesting people. Maybe some of you might come visit Dharma Farms. Some people stay for 3 weeks (minimum) or 6 months or even years. Hawaii grows on you!
Places I've been: Phillipines (4 years), Thailand (1 year), Canada (3 months), West Coast (USA) (on and off for 7 years), Maui - Oahu - Big Island (Hawaii)(all the rest of the time :D)

Hi there, I've been dreaming of going to Hawaii. How I wish I could see the beauty of Hawaii. Anyway, been here in the Philippines? Where particularly here in our country?
Jane, I lived on Luzon in Baguio, on Quezon Hill. Yay John Hay, Burnham park, good memories. I surfed in San Juan at a famous spot called Mona Lisa. I also visited Manila, Cavite and a few other places but I forget the names. Good food in the PI, taho! I love that stuff.
Welcome to TP! Hey, my sister's name is Lundy, is that your name too?
Hi Lundy - I used to live on Oahu (probably B4 you were born!) - I miss the saimin (noodles) and the wonderful Hawaiian people. Next trip you must visit Vietnam - a very special place, and much much cheaper than HI. I'm living in Portland, and as you probably know, we have many Hawaiians living here, but alas very poor Hawaiian restaurants. I would imagine the tourism in the Islands is not doing too well these days what with the economy in free-fall? Mangoes in Oregon are so expensive - much cheaper in Vietnam for sure.
