Yes, I could kick myself. Why? Well for several reasons:
I listened to all the negative reports on the Big Island. To people that said things like: 1. It feels as if you just landed on the moon. 2. It isn’t what you think of when you think of an island, 3. people who would tell me they hated it and 4. people who would write that they would not return.
What I found was a magnificent Island, a grand, beautiful, awesome, mystical, spiritual, mysterious and beautiful island.
Verdict: We loved it!
Unfortunately, all of the negative comments kept me away all of these years and I kept going to other islands but never to the Big Island. Now I can hardly even think of a future trip to Hawaii without including the BI.
On this trip I decided not to do a “live” trip report. I did them last year and frankly, it took too much out of my vacation time and spending time with my family. I know you all would understand. But now I am ready to start sharing some of my trip with you.
Thanks to all who gave me advice on the Big Island including, KK, Bips and Honu. I will post a day at a time. Day 1 coming soon….
