For my friend Michael Wilcox the perfect trip includes castles, cathedrals and Shakespeare. Mike can tell you more about the sites of England than the queen. For me the ideal vacation includes sun, palm trees and sand between my toes, or simply put Hawaii! Hawaii for me is home. My mom is an island girl, Chinese Hawaiian.

Here are some absolutes when visiting my home, the paradise island of Oahu.

If you're a snorkeler then Shark's Cove is a must. Shark's Cove is a wonderful reef located on the North Shore and is ranked twelfth most favorite place to snorkel in the world. When you look under water through your mask you'll probably scream out in Utahnese 'Oh my heck, look at the fish!' As the name implies, some white tipped reef sharks call this cove home. Not to worry though, they like to keep their distance.

Turtles are frequently seen in this cove too.
