i just got back from hawaii and i must say it was an interesting week. i like it, just too touristy for my tastes. There were all sorts of people there, but the largest groups were Japanese and Americans.
It is interesting to see how Hawaii takes its heritage and turns it into a tourist trap, no other state (that I am aware of) does that.
There were also a lot of bikes there, mostly older, but plenty of them.
Some of the more memorable activities were DEEP sea fishing and got to dive 5 times (first open water dives).
One weird thing did happen though. While my wife and I were visiting another hotels shops and such, I waited outside as I did not want to be bothered with ANOTHER dress shop. Low and behold I found a mans shaving kit that contained over 2000 in cash, lots of checks and credit cards. After sitting and thinking about what I should do (about 30 minutes worth) and hecking for video cameras, traps, cops, etc.. I got up and decided to take it to the manager of the hotel. on the way I noticed a Japanese man looking around all over as if he had misplaced something. I walked over to him and showed him the kit. His face lit up like a Christmas tree, he explained to me that he was a travel agent and was ready to check in his guests at the hotel and noticed his bag was missing. He offered to take my wife and I out and I refused his gesture and he thanked me several more times and then we just walked away like it never happened. I must say that I felt sick for about and hour afterwards.
