Travelling Is Life

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page

Travelling Is Beginning

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step

Travelling Is Involvement

A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles

Travelling Is Exploring

Tourists don’t know where they have been, travellers don’t know where they are going

Travelling Is Observation

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things

Hawaiian Islands Have It All

Hawaii! A mere mention of this word is enough to generate a very warm and bright-as-sun feeling  inside anybody. Yes! The diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of long sandy beaches and oceanic surrounding... all these make Hawaii a popular destination for tourists and surfers. And to add to this list, some really active volcanoes enhance Hawaii's charm.

An archipelago comprising of volcanic islands in northern Pacific Ocean, Hawaii presents some amazing sites to its visitors. The eight islands at south-eastern end of the archipelago are the most frequently visited ones; and amongst them Maui (the Valley Isle), Kauai (the Garden Isle), Oahu (the Gathering Place) and Hawaii (the Big Island) are the most scenic ones. While Niihau (the Forbidden Isle) is also very scenic but is privately owned.
