In trying to find pictures for Throwback Thursday, I realized I have a lot of pictures of adult beverages (that is said with pride, by the way!). As such, I’ve decided that rather than share pictures of me with bad 80s hair and glasses that legitimately covered half my face, I could easily share glasses … Continue reading A Virgin Thirsty Thursday
If you are thinking I’m going to talk about eggs or maybe even coffee, you would be wrong. Today I’m going to talk about pancakes. For the record, I don’t think I’ve ever met a pancake that I didn’t like. But, OMG, Hawaiian pancakes are just absofuckinglutely amazing. You might say that it’s just the … Continue reading Eggs ‘N Lava Java
As previously mentioned, our stay on the Big Island was split by spending a couple of nights in Kona and then packing up to head to the eastern side of the island to Hilo. Actually we didn’t quite make it to Hilo, as we opted to spend the night closer to the volcano and stayed … Continue reading Room With A Rainforest View
If you ever find yourself in Hawaii and the opportunity presents itself, I would highly recommend taking a helicopter ride. And I don’t say this lightly. I’m not the type of person who takes helicopter rides whenever the fancy strikes (and theoretically I could, since I live in NYC and the helicopter tour people love … Continue reading Flying High!

It sounds like something you could only see in the Emerald City or along the yellow brick road, but in fact, all you have to do is go to Hawaii, Guam, Norway, or the Galapagos Islands. As fortune would have it (although at this point it shouldn’t be a shocker), we were on the island … Continue reading Green Sand
I don’t know about you, but when I think of the location of the Hawaiian Islands I tend to think of it as smack dab in the middle of the Pacific Ocean due west of California. However, it is actually a little bit further south than “due west of California.” Okay, quite a bit south … Continue reading A Little Geography Lesson

For the record, this isn’t what I wanted to share with you today. But in the interest of actually getting something posted, I had to improvise (let’s just say wifi and technology haven’t been my friends this week!) I could have easily made this picture a Wordless Wednesday post, but it was suggested to me … Continue reading Kilauea
When most people think of Hawaiian beaches, they probably think of something like this: Or perhaps this: But what about something like this? If you’re saying to yourself : “Self, that sand sure looks black,” you would be correct! It is, in fact, a black sand beach (which shouldn’t surprise any one who read Pilgrimage to … Continue reading Colorful Beaches
