For a family vacation this summer I chose to go to Hawaii. We were looking for a warm, exotic place with a lot of water sports and most of all, easy to travel to with children.

We planned the primary trip to the Big Island where we've never been before but our friend Melanie also suggested we come out a few days earlier and see her in Honolulu as well. Turns out that was a really good idea because the island are very different and offer very different activities.

After that we took a quick hop over to the Big Island where we have never been before. Despite the lack of really nice beaches it was a lot of fun because there was just so much to do. We stayed in Kona which seems to be just the big trousist spot. I guess real residents tend more to live in Hilo.
