A drive around the Big Island, Hawaii

Sharing is caring!

This is the last blog post on our trip to Hawaii until our next visit, which may come sooner than expected. More on that later.

I have been looking at my screen for the last 10 minutes wondering how I can possibly wrap up this series of posts on such a beautiful and awe inspiring place. Hawaii was not at all what I expected of a Polynesian archipelago, but it was absolutely fantastic. Two weeks were not enough to explore the amazing environmental diversity of each island. There are layers upon layers of local history and hidden gems everywhere, waiting to be uncovered.

I found a lot of peace and serenity in the Big Island and an unexplainable sense of belonging. I can’t wait to go back and hope you too, can visit it, love it and share your stories.

I leave you with some pictures from our drive around the island.

Happy Xploring!
