I spent 3.5 weeks on the island of Oahu visiting one of my best friends, Erica. I was surprised at how small the island is... You can drive around the whole thing in a couple of hours. It's easily accessible by public bus, too. For a few dollars you can take a bus anywhere on the island. It's breathtakingly beautiful. Erica is based in Waikiki, which is a neighbourhood in Honolulu. My favourite part of Oahu was the North Shore. I can't wait to go back.
