Ahhhh Kauai, is there a more relaxing place in the world? I think Rottnest comes pretty close and its certainly a lot cheaper to get to (only just!) but I just simply love Hawaii and the Hawaiian way of life.
This is Hanalei Bay which is a really nice spot to stay if you ever get to travel to Kauai. It has an extremely relaxed atmosphere surrounding it and most people there are very chilled out. Its also an extremely popular surfing spot and for good reason, look at the size of that swell coming through and all the swell lines out in the ocean.
