The first part of today's question is easy enough, the second part is where things get tricky.
Without a doubt the one place I would visit is Hawaii.
I grew up on an island and so I've always been drawn to island living. From all the stories I hear, the pictures I see and the movies I watch... Hawaii seems like the ultimate island. Hawaii is also home to one of my favourite musicians, Jack Johnson. My dream vacation in Hawaii would be filled with enjoying soothing music, taking in luscious landscapes and of course ... having a surfing lesson .. or three.
There is really only one simple thing I will do to ensure I get to go to Hawaii one day... work hard. Hard enough so that I am able to earn it ... because you can be certain that when I do go to Hawaii, to me it will be a vacation like no other.
