Photography: Hawaii – Big Island

Aloha!

For a long time, whenever I was asked where I would like to travel to, Hawaii was the answer. It had been on the top of my list forever and I hardly know anyone who’s been there. It’s just so far away from Germany and pretty expensive to get there. Luckily, I spent 12 months in San Francisco and the West Coast is not so far away from the Hawaiian Islands. After finishing my work as an au pair, I went on a travel month across the US and Hawaii was one of my destinations. I went with two of my friends and we were really excited. Unfortunately, the problem with being super excited for something is that you can end up very disappointed. I had the highest expectations for Hawaii and well, it wasn’t exactly fulfilling for me. My mom said that I’m spoiled after living in San Francisco and traveling to a lot of beautiful places within the US, and maybe she’s right. Don’t get me wrong, Hawaii is beautiful but it was just not as perfect as I thought it would be. The rain was crazy, we couldn’t really find proper beaches and a couple of other things that didn’t turn out as expected did kill my mood here and there. For now I’m cured but maybe I’ll travel back one day and try a different island.

Here are some pictures I took with my reflex camera, my GoPro and two pics were taken with my friend’s camera. And don’t hate on me for saying Hawaii isn’t the most incredible place on earth. My standards are just too high with everything in life.

    Perfect, just when I discussed “Why do people lie about traveling” you pop up and are brutally honest about your stay in Hawaii! Haha! Loved it.
