My sister arrives tomorrow! Then Wednesday, we (sister, roomie, and I) set off for Hawaii!
We are flying to the Big Island first, where we will spend 3 nights in Volcano Village in a little cottage there. I am hoping we will see lava flowing, but it isn't likely. We will be able to see a glow from the caldera and hike the lava tubes.
Then we will move to a condo on the Kona coast for 4 nights. During this part of the trip, we are taking a tour to the summit of Mauna Kea, almost 14,000 feet above sea level. We will be stargazing - can't wait!
After that, we travel to Waikiki and are staying in a hotel right on the beach. While there, we will be taking a very special tour of Pearl Harbor and the Arizona Memorial. We are also visiting the Polynesian Cultural Center, where we will attend a luau and show.
I'll be back with a trip report in about 2 weeks!
