    Our last leg of our trip to the U.S. is on the island of Oahu, nestled on Waikiki beach, Waikiki looks a little like the Gold Coast of Qld, lots of tall hotels lining the foreshore. Our hotel is located two blocks from the foreshore, a five minute walk. Lots of couture shops to walk past to get to the beach. LOL! Diamond crater early morning hike …

    ... that the road to our homestay near Hilo was one long bumpy rollercoaster ride over past lava flows that have since cooled and hardened. As if our bumpy landing wasn't enough for Ness' stomach, now just getting from A to B was proving to be a stomach churning experience!

    ... yes there is a rainbow. The surrounding area here is very unique. Beautiful lush green forest, crystal clear, cold water.
    Next stop is Akaka Falls. These are quite impressive, and the walk to the falls takes you through some amazingly dense rain forest. Then its a visit to coconut island. Nothing much here, just a fancy name. WE take a scenic route along the coast and find some walking trails to some remote beaches. Huge waves crashing in to the lava rocks made for some ...

    ... That was really exciting that I got an authentic aloha from a local. We then went to the main crater site. Along the way, steam vents began to pop up. Once we got off the bus, we got to actually go up to the steam vents. The steam looked very similar to the mist produced at various theme parks in order to keep patrons cool so I was rather surprised when the steam was warm. Silly me; Its steam. Steam= hot. We walked into the thin scrub and came upon the ledge where the ...
