Hawaii – November 2011.

In November I flew from Berlin to Heathrow to LAX to Honolulu, all in one day. When I arrived in Hawaii I had been traveling for about 29 hours, and then went out drinking with friends on the Zaandam. I think I stayed up about 35 hours in total.

The next day I visited the North Shore to see some famous surfing spots, and went for some walks through some scenery so interesting it has been used in many movies and TV shows like Jurassic Park and Lost. Then we sailed across to Kauai, where I took a helicopter flight. It’s the most amazing place, and once again used for so many movie locations. Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, and many, many more.

We flew to the wettest place on Earth, and I saw a 360 degree rainbow from above.

And I only vomited once. It’s what I do.
