HAWAII PART I: HILO
Here is my first post from our Hawaii vacation of 2 months ago! We had the pleasure of taking this trip with our good friends John and Chari. It was my first time to Hawaii and I was apprehensive that it would be some seriously cheesy American tourist vacation. Maybe it would have been had we stayed on Waikiki, but the Big Island was sparse, friendly, and amazing! Arriving at Kona on March 31 was awesome--the airport is totally open air and the weather was fantastic. It was not nearly as humid or hot as I anticipated it might be; it was just temperate and beautiful. We immediately picked up our enormous rental vehicle and drove across the island to Hilo.
