Kauai – The Garden Island

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Kauai is about 100 miles north of  Oahu. Although the island is very close to Oahu, everything looks completely different. As there are lots of plants growing, the island gets a green look.

After two days here, I think it’s really a nice place despite the (heavy) rain showers.

Yesterday, I drove up north and did sightseeing Japanese Style (hop-off, take pictures, hop-on). It’s was quite interesting but not comparable to the views I got today. I went to the Waimea Valley where I wanted to hike a bit. After yesterday’s rain it was still very slippery in some passages. But the views I got were worth all the ‘wounds’. After roughly 5 hours I got back to my car.
