  1. Kauai looks like a paradise. Nature is absolutely breathtaking. I am always amazed. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Kauai was the first Hawaiian island I ever visited. Went back 10 years later and hope for many more opportunities to see that beautiful place on earth. I’d love to hike the Kalalau Trail — what gorgeous scenery along the way.
