Hawaii Vacation, 2014

2014-09-09 18.27.39

I’m back from Hawaii! Maybe you didn’t know I was gone? Well, I was. D and I spent seven days on the Big Island of Hawaii. What did we do? Some swimming, some snorkeling, some hiking, some running, and a few touristy things. At some point, when I figure out how, I’ll put up all the pictures from the trip. In the meantime here are some highlights. I guess I should put a slow internet connection warning on this post, there are a lot of pictures following this

If you haven’t been to Hawaii and you want to go I’ll go ahead and make the pitch that you should avoid the other two popular islands and stick to the Big Island, it’s not as touristy as the other islands and it has the most active volcano in the world on it. So many beautiful places to go and so many amazing things to see.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
