Oahu, Hawai’i

My tour of the USA ended with a trip to the island of Oahu in Hawai’i. There was lots of time for resting on Waikiki Beach, exploring the island and visiting the Polynesian Cultural Centre as well as the Bishop Museum, designated the Hawaiʻi State Museum of Natural and Cultural History.
