"Oh, the places we will go" - Hawaii & Honduras #atozchallenge

Hawaii was my last state to visit. We did it via a cruise (what a surprise) in November 2016. It was as beautiful as I expected, more crowded than I thought and someplace I want to visit again.

Unfortunately, I was sick the entire time we visited there. So sick, I had to see the ship's doctor for antibiotics (bronchitis). But I did manage to get off on Kaua`i for a helicopter ride over the island. This is where my book, Paradise Down, is set. It was such fun to see the area I picked for the story.
