Meeting dolphins and humpback whales on Hawaii.
My travel to Hawaii was
in January 2002. In one way I don't know what to write,
because travelling to Big Island, Hawaii goes beyond
words. Although it was always my dream to go to Hawaii, I
was scared of being disappointed, but for no reason,
because it is most beautiful. Before I went I only knew
very little about Hawaii, now I have read a couple of
books, and know that Hawaii is 7 islands, the one I
visited was Big Island. All internationel planes arrive
at Honolulu on Oahu. I only was one day in Honolulu and
went to Wakiki Beach, although Wakiki is "The
Beach" to go to, it was too touristy for me.

|As I have already told I stayed at K-Bay. Joan Ocean has lived in K-Bay since 1989, and have been swimming with the dolphins nearly every day, she has written two good books about dolphins, look under my Links, if you want to read about Joan. When I mention Joan, it is because it was after reading her books that I just "had to go to Hawaii". And it was a beautiful experience to meet Joan, she is what I call a true "dolphin-human" and she lives the "dolphinway". I met more of those people on Hawaii. By the way I was together with a Swedish group, guided by Lotten Odh, for more about Lotten look under my Links. I can truely recommand Lottens dolphintrips.|
To travel and swim with dolphins is rather demanding, but also very rich. The dolphins first of all teach me ACCEPT, RESPECT, JOY and PRESENCE.
My wish is, that dolphinpeople all over the world support each other and in this way more and more people will learn to love dolphins and live in the "dolphinway", which for me is "living from the heart", and in that way treat both animal, human and nature with honesty, acceptance, responsibility, respect and love.
