May 2015


I got back from Hawaii in the early hours of 20 May, and decided that with the next weekend being a bank holiday, and hoping it would help fix my jetlag, I booked a holiday to the Isle of Wight with Tim. But first, I went to see Blade Runner at the Prince Charles Cinema in London; another good classic to see on the big screen.

Hawaii 2015: Volcanoes National Park


Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a significant proportion of Big Island, and we were living within cycle distance of it, which meant I had plenty of time to explore it, both with Emily in her car, and by myself on Emily's bicycle. It's a really diverse place and this is a massive journal entry; sorry! (But lots of photos too.)

Hawaii 2015: Waipio and Pololu Valleys


Along the north coast of Big Island are the eroded remains of the extinct Kohala volcano, which makes the landscape there similar to parts of Kauaʻi. Along the coast are the beautiful Waipio and Pololu valleys, and a bit further west is the lovely little town of Hawi, where cowboys and pirates sit at cafés.

Hawaii 2015: Maui


I thought splitting Haleakalā off into its own post would make writing up Maui a fairly short exercise, but I had forgotten just how much there was to see and do there! This is a very condensed summary, but hopefully I can get across how lush, exciting, and unique the island is.

Hawaii 2015: Haleakalā Volcano


This is where Emily and I got engaged!

We actually made two trips to Maui to visit Haleakalā, first accompanied by a friend of Emily's where we took a trip around the whole island, and a second time when a cancellation for one of the cabins inside Haleakalā's crater meant we could go and stay the night there.
