I arrived in Honolulu's airport on the island of O'ahu after a very short flight from the neighbouring island of Kauai, and jumped straight into a shuttle to take me to my hostel in Waikiki beach. I'll be honest, as the van crawled at snails pace with the rest of the traffic, horns honking like… Continue reading Three Days in Honolulu (What to do on a budget in the capital of Hawaii)
Nashville, Tennessee: the Country Music capital of the world.
