Hi Cstar King!!
OK, 174th, you started this post just to get my attention didn't you. It's a conspiracy cause you knew I couldn't resist a good Hawaiian post.
Well, you have it, my undivided attention!
OK, the way I feel right now, I have to say my favorite, for reasons explained below, is :
Reasons being: Maui has the perfect blend of people and nature. there's not too many people or tourist areas, which means there are alot of places you can go for a nice, secluded swim or hike. The beaches are not choked with tourists, the waterfalls are not fake.
And the people: Maui's people are like small-town people. they're there for each other, and the Hawaiian environment only amplifies that. Aloha spirit is interwoved within every aspect of Maui life. People are prefectly content with sufficing with a bicycle other than a car. Kids go to school barefoot. Aloha shirts are not out of style
But most of all Mauians are there for each other. Food is expensive as you know. So usually babysitters in Maui are paid in vegetables, fruits, or everybody's favorite, coconuts.
Also, those who have financial problems in Maui need not worry. It's a common occurance for neighbors in maui to bond to such a great length they consider themselves family, and for the less fortunate, they always find a home in th eland of Aloha.
Maui is the best of all worlds.
Aloha's second favorite island is
Reasons being: The utter beauty. Maui can't compare to Kauai's beauty. However there are not enough people on Kauai, there more things to do in nature but city life is more dull than city life in Maui, and I am a person who enjoys alot f things to do.
Kauai is a back-to-nature island. It's for the person that craves relaxation 24hrs a day, and it's for the naturelover too. But there's not alot to do in the city itself.
Oahu would be my favorite if it didn't have so many people. But it has too many people, it's too busy for me, except the north and east shores. THAt is paradise if anything!! I love Oahu, too many people, not enough wild places.
Following would be the
The only place I could live in the big island would be in the Hamakua/Hilo area, where its rainy and very green all the time. The rest of the island is ranch land and rather dry= not my type of place.
The island with the three hotels you are talking about is
I believe. Were there 3,000-ft sea cliffs on the north shore and does the name Kalaupapa mean anything to you? If it does, it was Moloka'i, between Maui and O'ahu.
BTW, if you noticed, I declined to post any Hawaii pictures. Not long ago I was advised to quit doing that, it was becoming an addiction!
