What a breathtakingly gorgeous place Hawaii was!! My friend and I did a road trip in Oahu and then the Big island as well. There was just so much variety on both islands from the sea turtles in the turquoise crystal clear water, the white and black sand lava beaches, to the endless amounts of waterfalls, to the dry desert in Mauna Kea. It feels like one of the most diverse places on the planet, all in such a small area!

One of my favourite things we saw was a double rainbow one morning in the middle of a bright green field, it was so close it felt like you could reach out and touch it. The horses were being very friendly too, wanting a lot of attention. Another favourite thing we saw was Volcano’s National Park, it was unlike anything we have ever seen. It felt like we were on another planet. The steam vents we saw were killing any plants that got too close, drying them up and turning them bright silver. Then at sunset the dry lava fields lit up, and at night one active volcano that glowed bring red was very spectacular.

I will always hold Hawaii close to my heart  and will always look back and smile when I think of it. 🙂
