    Hawaii - Hilo

    December 6, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Da sich unsere Reise schon bald dem Ende neigt haben wir uns in Hilo noch einen großen Wunsch erfüllt - einen Helikopterflug! 🚁
    Wir flogen 1 Stunde lang über die noch immer aktiven Vulkane des Volcano National Parks und konnten sehen, wie sehr das Umland bei den letzten Ausbrüchen zerstört wurde. An den Dämpfen sieht man, dass im Untergrund immer noch Lava fließt und es zum nächsten Vulkanausbruch nicht mehr lange dauern wird. 🌋Read more

    Hawaii - East Honolulu

    December 1, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Da es in Hawaii nicht möglich ist unter 21 Jahren ein Auto zu mieten, aber wir trotzdem noch etwas mehr von der Insel sehen wollten, entschieden wir uns mit dem Bus nach East Honolulu zu fahren.🚌
    Dort schauten wir uns „Hanauma Bay“ an und bestiegen danach die 1048 Stufen des Koko Head. ⛰🧗🏽‍♀️
    Abends schauten wir uns den Sonnenuntergang an und liefen zu einem Aussichtspunkt, um die Skyline von Honolulu noch bei Nacht bestaunen zu können.🌅🌃

    Hawaii - Kona

    December 9, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Unseren letzten Stopp auf Hawaii legten wir in Kona, einer kleinen Stadt im Westen Big Islands ein. Hier verbrachten wir die letzten 3 Tage hauptsächlich am menschenleeren Strand, der nur ein paar Minuten von unserer Unterkunft entfernt war . ☀️🏝
    Hawaii hat uns beiden sehr gut gefallen, da die Inseln unglaublich Facettenreich sind, und wir sind uns beide einig, dass wir sicher nicht das letzte Mal hier waren. ALOHA HAWAII 🤙🏼🌺Read more

    Hawaii - Honolulu

    November 28, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Nach 10 Stunden Flug und 21h Zeitverschiebung landeten wir am 27. in Hawaii-Honolulu. 🌺
    An diesem Tag machten wir nichts weiter außer am Strand zu liegen und gegen den Jetlag anzukämpfen.🌴🏖 Am Tag darauf beschlossen wir aber eine Wanderung auf den Diamond Head zu machen, die laut Google Maps nur 2 h gehen sollte. Letztendlich kamen wir 8h später völlig fertig in unserem Apartment an und wollten uns mit LocoMoco, einer Hawaiianischen Spezialität belohnen, die leider genauso schmeckte wie sie aussieht. 😅🌋🏃🏽‍♀️🍛Read more

    Hanauma Bay ... fish!

    May 13, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    At last I've got to the snorkelling section of my trip 😎

    Hanauma Bay is a flooded extinct volcanic crater - cool in its own right, but also a safe and rich snorkelling site. I'll go at least once more, so lots more fish pics 😉

    A feather cloak and my tears ...

    May 14, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    I went to the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum, which is the Hawaiʻi State Museum of Natural and Cultural History.

    I'd been told an important feather cloak was on display having returned to Hawaii from New Zealand, that it contained feathers from now-extinct birds and that Hawaiians had queued to see it. So I was interested.

    What I didn't know until I saw it was that it was the cloak given to Captain Cook by high chief Kalani'opuh'u.

    Well I don't really know what happened, but I felt completely overwhelmed and just stood there and cried. I have a sense it's to do with HERE and THERE, THEN and NOW, childhood and adulthood, connection and journeys. Powerful stuff to reflect on.

    Rainforest home

    May 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    This is my pad for the next few days! It's a cabin on an organic fruit farm, so not as isolated as it looks - I can hear voices in the distance and a lot of chicken puk pukaw-ing. They are part of the WWOOF scheme (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) so there are a few people volunteering here. They don't get as posh a place 🙂

    The (dozens? of) coqui frogs (they shout coo kee!) are really loud at night, but it's quite a friendly sound and it beats dumpsters being emptied and engines being revved and sirens wailing. I'm a little creeped out by the insects (uh ho, a couple of cockroaches, I'd forgotten they can fly - eugh!) but I reckon I'll settle in ok, and I knew 'critters' were part if the deal when i booked. In compensation, waking up here this morning and being able to see right out was amazing - put a big smile on my face, and I slept better than for a few nights.

    Kapoho Tide Pools

    May 19, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    Tide pools can only mean one thing ... fish!
    But what a remarkable setting. Basically there are several tidal pools protected from the ocean by a reef, so the water in them is really still - no fighting the swell to get pics 😆 I've been told there is great coral in some of the other pools (I'll be back!) but I was quite content in the one I explored today which was lava covered in algae. The water was really clear - no sand to get churned up, but at times the visibility was really poor due to convection currents - I could see them - a rather odd experience for everything to suddenly become blurred. It's obvious in my videos but photos just look out of focus! I was a bit slow working it out, but there are hot pools nearby so I guess it's all the same thing since I'm living on Kilauea (the active volcano)! Very cool indeed!!!
    Honestly I could go on and on about all this - I just remembered I saw a snowflake moray eel, but too far down for a good pic.

    But anyway, after my snork I headed back to the Lava Tree State Park and wandered around the whole thing - only a short walk which is just as well because the sun was scorching by then - a real contast to the evenings and overnight - layers and blanket definitely required.

    Kilauea caldera

    May 21, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    Yay, made it to Kilauea! The most active volcano in the world 😃 It's been erupting from its east rift zone since 1983 - that's before I started work! Tomorrow I'll be moving to stay near where the current lava flow enters the sea ... I'm hoping that will be the most amazing location, for the night sky too.

    Today I went along the north section of the crater rim drive - the west and south sections are closed because of the gases drifting over from the crater.
    It's impossible to get a pic of the whole caldera because it's so large, and what I hadn't realised is that the caldera the road circumnavigates is an inner caldera contained in a much larger (about x3) outer caldera which I was already inside!

    Sea view!

    May 24, 2017 in the United States ⋅

    I took a boat trip from Issac Hale Beach down to the lava sea entry point, about 15 miles each way. What an experience. Hours later and I swear I can still taste sulphur in my mouth. I don't know what I was more scared by, the prospect of an unexpectedly violent lava explosion - I'd say we were only 6 or 7m away at one point, or falling out of the boat (very low sides, no railings) as we pitched and rolled viewing the lava.Read more
