What is a round-the-world trip without a visit to Hawaii? When on top of that it is Humpback whale mating season just off the coast and thousands of Humpback males jump to impress the females there is actually no argument not to stop at Hawaii. Especially not when it is right on the way from Sydney to Los Angeles and Hawaii’s nature and culture is something we have all been dreaming of visiting one day.

We will be staying on Oahu for the first 4 days and then a week on Maui. In both places we have found something through airbnb which not only makes it a bit cheaper but as important we will stay with locals that will be able to point us to the right places to go and things to see.
