A few years ago, I went to yellowstone. Simply the best five days of my life.
If Yosemite has any of that expansive feel, then I know it will be perfect for me. Really looking forward to hiking there. Given that I'm going from england - and here the outdoors are far quainter - I better get fit for the longer hikes. I'll keep your tips in mind.
As for Hawaii, I'm totally lost. Did Kauai have a few relaxing beaches when you were over there? I'm not really into a hectic nightlife. Just want to relax by the beach for a day or two, and on the other days I want to hike, ride a bike, dive, etc.
Its a nightmare organising things from over here in england. Trying to figure out campsites, hiring cars, co-ordinating all this shit is stressful hah!
Anyways, thanks for your help. Appreciate it.
