Top 8 Things to do in Hawaii
Hawaii is one of my favorite places on earth, for sure. It always amazes me the culture that is so alive and preserved by the people of Hawaii. Every time I visit, I learn something new to engross myself in the culture by taking a class on the Hawaiian language or sitting down with the family to learn how to play the ukulele or chat with the locals' something to keep the spirit of aloha alive. When we are not learning the ways of Hawaii, we are enjoying the many activities or taking in the islands' breathtaking sites. Swimming in a crater or watching whales playing around in the ocean is just the tip of the iceberg, every time I visit, we try to experience something new.
