Friday Dreaming: The Big Island of Hawaii

We leave for Kauai on Tuesday (3 more days!), so I’m taking a look back at our Hawaiian trips of the past.  Last Friday, I shared our first trip to the island chain, our engagement spot: Maui in 2008.  2 years later in 2010, we journeyed to the Big Island of Hawaii, and started a family tradition of traveling to one of the islands every two years during the month of November.

Though we did spend time on the beach, that’s not necessarily the first thing you think of when thinking of  your visit to the Big Island.  Volcanoes.  Yes, that’s more like it.

On a walk in search of lava flowing into the ocean, we came up empty handed.

What would we do without coffee? And this is some of the best on earth.

We worked hard to find this, but we did finally get some beach time.

What are your traveling traditions?

  1. Love the tropical pictures! The Big Island is one of our favorites and Volcanoes National Park. What a great tradition your family has. It’s a wonderful idea I may need to propose to my husband 🙂 Have a safe and terrific trip to Kauai.

We'd love to hear from you!
