Aloha! I’ve returned from Hawaii, specifically the Big Island – land of lava rock everywhere! Also land to waterfalls, volcanoes, kona coffee, botanical gardens, beaches, luau’s and the list goes on….to food! Now, let’s get down to business – once you get away from all the touristy areas you’ll find some real gems. How about BBQ slaw with cabbage, pineapple and apple or acai bowls or da poke shack (fresh chunks of fish caught that morning) or all of the amazing fruit.
What a fun adventure, not paradise, but lots of activities and scenic differences all over the island. Highlights included, spotting a white tip reef shark while scuba diving, being surrounded by spinner dolphins in the ocean, waterfalls, walking through a giant crater in volcanoes national park, not getting sunburnt (pale people unite!), and amazing food (sorry, can’t stop talking about it).
