Ilona and Derek Take the World Part 5 – Aloha, Oahu!

The flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu is about a five and half hour flight.

Hawaii has 5 major islands, Hawaii (usually called The Big Island), Maui, Molokai, Oahu and Kauai. Of course the Hawaii archipelago has more than a hundred islands, but who has time to visit all of them, let alone many are only a handful of feet in length! We only had two weeks to explore the islands, so we decided to spend the first few days on Oahu and the rest on The Big Island.
