About Hawaii

Hawaii is the 50th and most recent U.S. state to join the United States, having joined the Union on August 21, 1959. It is the only U.S. state located in Oceania and the only one made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean.

Hawaii's diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches, oceanic surroundings, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, (wind) 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.

“Discover Hawaii through Dean Karamehmedovic's Eyes.”

"Hawaii is a lush tropical paradise of endless white, black or green sand beaches, active volcanoes and crystal blue waters. I love to travel from island to island uncovering the hidden, beautiful places that visitors cannot find in a travel guides."

 

Szymon "Zbooy" MadejDean Karamehmedovic, also affectionately known as Aloha Dean, is a Slovenian who moved to Canada in 1995 with his wife and son. in June 1997 he purchased the "Amadeus Café" in downtown Halifax. It quickly became a trendy place with “Euro-Look” with a lot of very interesting people as clientele. 

But since he always wanted to live in the tropics, especially after experiencing Canadian winters, in 2000 Dean sold the business and the whole family moved to Hawaii calling Honolulu home.

Dean runs VTHawaii.com, as a one-man operation and continues to successfully do so since being established in January 2003 . The web site won the Aloha Award and is today the most extensive VR panorama resource about Hawaii. Often he can be found around the north american continent on shooting assignments for the hospitality industry. Dean is also a PADI Dive Master and expert underwater photographer.
