My Trip to Hawaii (去夏威夷的旅行)

Introduction (出發)

Hawaii Beach (夏威夷的海灘)

When I was 11 years old, my family and I went to Hawaii for vacation. I flew from the San Francisco Airport to an airport in Maui, a small island in Hawaii. Supposedly, we were going to arrive in Hawaii within three hours, but our flight was running late. As we neared the airport, we could see beautiful, blue beaches below. We finally got to Maui after a five-hour flight.

Food (食物)

Seafood Noodles (海鮮麵)

That night, my family and I got to eat seafood at a nearby restaurant. We got to eat extremely tasty seafood noodles and fried fish. After dinner, my whole family felt that the dinner was wonderful. We stayed at a very high-class hotel in Maui.

Hawaii Fried Fish (夏威夷煎魚)

In the morning, my cousins arrived at Maui by flight, and drove to the hotel that we were staying in. Some flew from Los Angeles, Japan, and even Taiwan. Even my grandparents flew from Taiwan to Hawaii to be with us.

我們在 Maui 住了一個禮拜,我們還有去壇香山(Honolulu)住了兩天。我覺得 Maui 是我們去過的地方裡面最好玩的。
We stayed in Maui for a week; after that one week, we flew to Honolulu, Hawaii's capitol. Overall, I think Maui was where we had the most fun.

Scenery Spots (風景名勝)

Hawaii Volcano (夏威夷火山)

At noon, we drove to a nearby volcano that was still active. That volcano could have erupted anytime we were near it. Walking on the volcano's side, you could still feel the warmth from the volcano's heat.

Hawaii Sunset (夏威夷日落)

In addition visit the volcanoes, we also got a chance to watch the beautiful Hawaiian sunset on the warm beach. We sat on the soft sand watching the sun slowly sink into horizon. When the sun was almost completely gone, everyone went, "Oh ~"; it was very interesting.
