It was an exhausting 13-hour flight from Montreal to Honolulu with a connection in New York, but I did not complain. It was the middle of January with temperatures below -20C in Eastern Canada and, in O’ahu, it was +25C with high humidity and mild temperature fluctuations between day and night. The water temperature in the ocean was 25C making it comfortable at any time.
I took full advantage of the weather and woke up around 3am every morning to drive to different parts of the island for sunrise hikes.
The highlight of my visit to Hawaii was a day-long hike around Hanauma Bay.
It was my very first trip with my brand new Sony a6000 camera just weeks after selling all my Canon gear and making the switch to mirrorless.
