Big Island Adventure

Eight days on the Big Island of Hawaii meant eight days of grand adventures and experiences!  Helicopter rides, lava, cattle herding, photo safaris, vanilla tasting, and honey bees.  When I make a connection with people in a destination, then it will turn into one of those magical places that will be on my ‘favorite’ list for years to come. That is what the Big Island of Hawaii was for me. I made many connections while I was there that will keep me going back to revisit friends, and find new adventures. Follow my Big Island Adventures from the beginning and get ideas of your own on what you can do on the Big Island of Hawaii.
