The recent warm weather in the Pacific Northwest is quickly defrosting the long Portland winter away from my bones. It has been such nice weather in Portland in the last week, it has almost been too nice. When we had a humid lightening storm last night, I felt like we were back in the tropics.
I had the chance to explore Hawaii – Oahu and Maui – around this time last year on our way from New Zealand, and it is still a cherished memory. I had wanted to go to Hawaii for ages so you could say I was delighted to have been able to fit it into my travels last year.
So, when can I go back again?
These are my favorite 25 photos from the islands I went to this time around to give you some tropical inspiration and happiness this Friday afternoon.
