Kathy Petrino is a voracious world traveler, who wants to see everything she can during her life. Happily for us, Kathy also loves to write about her travels. This is because she loves to share everything and she wants others to have the same great experiences she has had. She enthusiastically writes about every destination as if she was the first one to see it because that is how she likes to feel when she goes herself. She thinks of herself as something of an explorer, who treats every destination as a new discovery.
One of Kathy Petrino’s favorite destinations just happens to be everyone’s favorite tropical paradise of Hawaii, which is the 50th state; a group of islands, each with its own special something to offer almost anyone. There is the great surfing on Oahu and the cosmopolitan flair of Honolulu, the natural beauty of Maui to the hidden natural treasures on Lanai. In short, Hawaii has something for everyone, including beautiful beaches, amazing jungles, breathtaking waterfalls, excellent swimming and diving, and world-class waves that make the surfers swoon.
As far as Kathy Petrino is concerned, Hawaii is a great destination for families, surfers and honeymooners, among many others.There are just so many things to do. The “Big Island” of Hawaii is home to two of the largest volcanoes on Earth, including Kiluea, which is the most active. If that doesn’t float our boat, you can also swim with manta rays, check out the black sand beaches of Waipi’o Valley or even climb Mauna Kea, or “White Mountain,” which is the highest peak in Hawaii, at 13,796 feet. For those not adventurous enough to swim with mantas or climb mountains, it is also possible to take a helicopter tour of all of the island. You can explore Honolulu, which will remind you of many large cities, or Waikiki, which has a unique blend of Asian and Hawaiian cultures, with just enough American culture mixed in to make you feel at home.
