Hawaii is the newest of the 50 U.S. states (August 21, 1959), and is the only U.S. state made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean, southwest of the continental United States, southeast of Japan, and northeast of Australia. Hawaii's natural and diverse scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches and oceanic surrounding, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, surfers, biologists, and volcanologists alike. Due to its mid-Pacific location, Hawaii has many North American and Asian influences along with its own vibrant native culture. Hawaii has over a million permanent residents along with many visitors and U.S. military personnel.

West Sweden


Reasoning: The west coast of Sweden, with its rugged coastline, excellent seafood and gastronomic reputation, is opening up to the UK market following the launch of two new flights to Gothenburg in late 2010 (BA from Heathrow and easyJet from Gatwick).

Reasoning: Blah blah blah, it’s the 100th anniversary of Machu Picchu’s rediscovery by Hiram Bingham in 2011. Change the record. Here’s a twist of a trip from The Traveller, though, focusing instead on Espiritu Pampa.
