Hawaii is the southernmost state of the United States. The archipelago is situated some 3,200 km southwest of the North American mainland. Most people only know the touristy places like Waikiki and Honolulu.
I spent a month traveling around Ohau and the Big Island and discovered an unspoiled paradise. Because the islands are 6 hours flying away from the nearest mainland and industry, the air and water are as pure as can be.
During my first days on the islands, I met a Swedish photographer who lived in Miami. Kicka Wittetook most of these beautiful pictures. She met her husband in Hawaii during that trip and they now live on the island of Kauai with their son Tristan. Click her name to visit her website.
