Must-See: Oahu, Hawaii

World traveler, photographer, event planner and Polynesian dancer - Lauren Nicholl, a San Francisco Tripper, shares her travel photos from Oahu, Hawaii.....

Growing up in San Diego and having spent time living by the beaches of Sydney, the beach girl in me sometimes struggles with low temperatures and chaos of the city. Although Australia is a little far, I am fortunate enough to travel south to San Diego every couple months and even luckier to travel to Hawaii every year to slow down and soak up some sun. To me, Oahu is home and when I go, I see it through the eyes of a local. Here are photos from my recent trip in September.
