Maps on postcards: Hawaiian Islands

15 05 2009

Another cool postcard subject, maps! This card shows a map of the islands of Hawaii. Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States of America and is situated in the Pacific Ocean, Honolulu is the capital of the state.

Hawaii is an archipelago. There are eight main islands and many small islands, they are the tops of underwater volcanoes. The main islands are Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui and Hawaii. The island Niihau is owned by one family and not governed by the local state government.

Interesting places to visit are, amongst some others, Waikiki Beach, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (I’ll feature this site in another blog entry soon) and the Pearl Harbor memorial.

The postcard! 😉
