after 4 days at sea, we finally arrived at our first island. the big island. we spent the day in hilo, visiting the volcano's national park, eating 'ono' (yummy) food from 7-eleven, sightseeing the akaka falls and exploring an awesome beach park.
next stop: maui! maui surprised us, we didn't know what to expect having only been there once for christmas when i was little, but we really fell in love with the historic town of lahina. we did a bit of shopping (okay, a lot) found a beautiful beach to take a nap on, and watched a little surfer show up the big boys.
