So, we've booked our flights to the Big Island in early December. Husband actually likes the idea that there is something like 13 of the world's 15 climates there & he's super excited about the volcano. Also, we are using mileage awards & we could get better flights to Kona over Kauai, it turns out.
So...We will be spending 8 days on the Big Island in December. I actually have an old friend living over there now (currently, in Volcano, but probably will be in Hilo by Dec). Our plan is to spend only a few nites in Kailua-Kona (probablu just first/last). We will be renting a car & driving around most of the island. Heading over to Lava Beds B&B & trekking around the volcano & the tide pools in Puna, spending a day or two with my friend in Hilo & a few days around the Waipio rim (rental house). There is supposed to be an awesome meteor shower while we are there, so hopefully, we will have clear skies to enjoy it.
We're really just excited about doing some hiking, seeing some waterfalls, snorkeling (possibly) & relaxing with a good book.
We seriously cannot wait.
Thank you for all the input. It really helped!
