Landed in Hawaii at 5am and contacted a couch surfer who responded immediately to meet up and show me around the island. I rented a car and cruised as far east to see the most splendid sunset! What a way to start at trip. After lovely breakfast I met up with George Clark who is just a gem of man who loves to show off his Hawaii to people coming in. He drove my car and we cruised the whole island in less than 8 hours, from beach to beach, military compound to next, and surf to surf. He had loads of wonderful history piled in which good additions to how he perceived America today. I was in bed by 10pm and up early to see more! Thanks George and thanks lovely Hawaii!
