AMERICAS HAWAII

Kauai, Hawaii

Good morning from Kauai!!

I was sitting here wondering what my first post should be about, if I should set this blog up in chronological order or not… and then I looked up and saw a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean from my condo in gorgeous Poipu and I thought to myself: You know what? My first post is going to be on what’s right in front of me, Kauai, Hawaii.

Kauai is the oldest and northernmost island of the Hawaiian chain, and is sometimes referred to as the “Garden Island” because of its abundant vegetation and picturesque views. From green valleys to jagged cliffs, Kauai is definitely awe-inspiring.

This post will simply give you a glimpse of how breathtaking this island is..

Here’s a little background on the trees in the last pictures — They’re African Albizia trees, imported in the 1970’s to the island. They grow about 20 feet in a year and are actually considered to be an invasive species on the Hawaiian islands due to their growth rate. We were even told that they now consider these trees to be a renewable energy on the islands because how quickly they grow.

Also, there are wild chickens EVERYWHERE on Kauai. They don’t have any predators on the island, so their population keeps growing and growing. Crazy! 

Make sure to check out my post on the helicopter tour we took on this beautiful island as well as my post on my 3 favourite beaches!!

    Absolutely beautiful! We have been to Honolulu and want to explore the other islands. The North Shore of Oahu was beautiful, but I didn’t like how the core was so Americanized. I want to see more lush beauty in Hawaii 🙂 Chickens are cool 🙂

      Thanks Debbie!! It was my first time to Hawaii, but we might be headed to Big Island next year (crossing my fingers!!!). Can’t wait to see what that’s like. I definitely recommend the helicopter tour to experience the whole island if ever you go to Kauai! 🙂
