In the book Blue Latitudes by Tony Horwitz, the author wonders what it would be like to retrace the voyages of Captain Cook; so he does just that. The author's thought upon arriving in Papeete was, "it's an utter sh**box. The architect who designed this town must have been unemployable anywhere else" and got me thinking about my last visit to Hawaii. Granted it was for work and the adage "location is not necessarily vacation" often holds true, but Hawaii?
A few images of the famous Waikiki Beach from my hotel.What would the good Capt. Think?
