Oh boy was that trip fun. So as you can see we didn’t do a crazy amount of stuff. The Big Island is a pretty chill island. There are things to do and places to see, but most of it is like a huge day trip. It is the biggest island, and that means plenty of driving. Not to mention the fact that we were there during the government shutdown, and the Ironman competition…which meant busy busy busy.
Because things were so busy, we decided to just mostly stay around the resort, or do small day trips to beaches.
The town in the top pictures, is called Hawi (ha-Vi). It was small and quaint. We had some yummy ice cream and then headed elsewhere. But small interesting details, like the wooden carving face on the old chipping painted buildings. Details that are just really neat…that make you remember that this is totally a beach town.
So as the water washes away our little memory note on the beach…the 10 days went by so quickly. I can’t wait to go back to another island in a few years. Like I said…I love it there…too much!
Happy Friday lovelies, have a great weekend!
xoxo thanks for reading
Well we had plenty of beach days…and then we had some sunset evenings. Some beautiful sunset evenings. The only “problem” is that because we are so close to the equator, the sun sets very very early. So we almost missed it a bunch of times!
Luckily we got one great night, the night where we get to see the man blowing the conch. Oh that Hawaiian man…that buff man. So we were wondering why at the other resort we were at the guy was like a “typical” Hawaiian guy…not overly buff, maybe a little soft, but tatted, and just Hawaiian. This guy was SO skinny. And then we realized that it was because this resort was HUGE. He was so fit because he had to run so much further! Haha..well buff and hot none the less. That was wonderful entertainment for sure…at least for me and my Step Mum.
One of our last nights there, we made the drive up to Mauna Kea. Now last time the sister and I were there, we got to see all the stars in the sky because it was such a clear night. This time though, we went to the top…but it was crazy cloudy. I do not deal well with altitude sickness…because I was definitely light headed. But being that high, was awesome. They do say that from the bottom of the volcano – because a huge part of it is under water, it is taller than Mt. Everest. Insane.
Thanks for reading lovelies!
I can’t believe it has taken me this long to show you our trip. I mean where to start. I am pretty much obsessed with that place. It is magical. As soon as we stepped off our second plane ride, after about 14 hours of travel time…I knew it was all worth it. I don’t know how to explain it, but it is so strange, it is like I am almost home. My home away from home. The warm air off that plane, the humidity, the salt in the air. No matter of the fact that it was pitch black outside, and I was starving and pretty much dying to have a shower…I felt amazing.
Where to start, well of course having not been to a beach for some time, that is where our adventures began. We waited the entire first day at the lagoon, as we basked in the sunshine, drank tropical drinks..and just waited until the family got here. Boy was it glorious, and as soon as they did get here…we got back in the water all over again.
I wish I took more pictures, but getting used to not taking pictures with my iPhone is a tough concept.

Happy Monday lovelies!
