From California Coast to Hawaii’s Beaches (A Photo Essay of an Incredible Day)


At long last, I am excited to share a photo essay of my journey from the coasts of California, over 3,800 km (2,300 mi) all the way to the Big Island of Hawai’i, what is said to be the heart chakra of the planet itself.

As I described a few entries ago, I went from waking up in California to eventually finding myself at an exquisitely pristine white sand beach by the end of the day.

It was one of those days that you intuitively know you will look back on as a milestone for years to come. Share & Enjoy!

  1. Andrew, this must be a great moment to arrive at the beach after the flight and to know that in any direction all you have around you, is the pacific ocean. I wasn’t in Hawai yet, but one day, who knows…

  2. It was an amazing feeling, Christian. It really was.
