#Waterfalls, greenery, cute buildings in the oldest white-settled place in Hawaii, and a #sunbake with a #rainbow to the finish off the day.  #Hilo and the lush northern coast of the #BigIsland of #Hawaii around it is charming.  No molten lava though... #selfemployed #holidays #instatravel #travelgram #naturelover #archigeek
Drove down to where lava meets #sea.  There’s a lot of #lava.  Lava that looks like a bridge.  From last night, lava that looks like folds of linen.  Lava that looks like ropes.  Also - another lava #Rainbow!  God I love #volcanoes...

Just hiked in and out of the most alien, awe-inspiring, difficult and amazing experience - an active #lava flow.  I can not describe how otherworldly it is to #hike (in day and night) over desolate shingled lava rock, gradually finding it getting warmer and then much much hotter - so hot you can’t get closer than about a metre from it - until it is literally glowing, popping, exploding and oozing out from beneath you making you question whether the “rock” you’re standing on is all that solid.  And probably hasn’t been there that long.  We even got a #rainbow at one point.  Absolutely #incredible.  11km up and then downhill over this terrain absolutely KILLS you though! #volcano #geogeek #science #naturelover #holidays #instatravel #travelgram #nofilter #sportyspice #fitspiration #hawaii

I’m in a #volcano guys!  #Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is dotted with volcanic craters, calderas, vents, rift zones, and lava lakes and tubes.  You can just make out the red of the lava in Kileaeu, but I’m hoping to hike up to an active lava flow tonight to get much closer to the action #volcanoes #geogeek #naturelover #instatravel #holidays #sciencegeek #travelgram #nofilter
The west coast of the #BigIsland of #Hawaii has the most alien, otherworldly landscape I’ve ever seen.  Very little vegetation as it’s in a huge rain-shadow cast by the huge #volcanoes, black lava flows that have flowed directly into the sea, and of course huge #MaunaKea and #MaunaLoa looming in the distance.  Can’t wait to get to the lush tropical side tomorrow and find me some lava!  #geogeek #naturelover #selfemployed #holidays #instatravel #travelgram
Best day #snorkelling!  Swam with a pod of wild Hawaiian spinner #dolphins (the splashes in the 2nd pic was all I could get of them), countless colourful #fish and at the end, a juvenile #humpback whale right next to our boat!  #lifewelllived #holidays #bucketlist #hawaii #davidattenborough #naturelover #instatravel #travelgram
Whaaaaaaaale!  A juvenile #humpback swimming right by our snorkel boat!  Channeling my inner David Attenborough today! #naturelover #ecogeek #hawaii #holidays #bucketlist
A fiery #sunset with added thirsty gecko.  #Kona is 4000% more chilled out than #Waikiki, and I’m loving it #Hawaii #instatravel #travelgram #skyporn #goldenhour #nofilter
My ride to #BigIsland #Hawaii is this cute little #Boeing #717.  I’ve not flown one before!  Also in the background are little and big brother #Airbus #a321neo and a #767 #avgeek #holidays #instatravel #newthings
Some random captures of #Honolulu and #Waikiki.  It’s been a lovely and chilled couple of days here but I’m excited to be headed to the #BigIsland #Hawaii tomorrow for more #adventures. #waikikibeach #diamondhead #sunsets #holidays #instatravel #selfemployed
Celebrated not getting nuked by #hiking up #DiamondHead.  Along with every other tourist in Honolulu.  #nofilter #holidays #instatravel #travelgram #hike #sportyspice #fitspiration
It’s been quite the full first day in #Hawaii for me!  Spent a couple of hours at #WaikikiBeach in the afternoon, a #beach with a #view of planes landing, so I could also indulge my #avgeek love of #spotting. Tragically, my beach-bumming was cut short prematurely by my own clumsiness, warning: the (very sharp) coral is VERY close to shore... #clumsy #holidays #instatravel #travelgram #nofilter #palmtrees #tropical #paradise #gaysian #instagay
Took a little #hike up to Manoa Falls as my first activity.  Nothing kills lingering jet lag better than #sweating it out pounding up to a waterfall in the #tropics!  #Hawaii is actually Jurassic Park.  Verdantly green, lush, and beautiful.  #naturelovers #instatravel #dailygram #holidays #selfemployed #gaysian #instagay
A few #dreamliner tails plus rear view of an #emirates #airbus #a380.  Still hate the (I’m sure) cost-led decision that has left #Jetstar #788  with white painted wings, nacelles and engines and silvery grey painted everywhere else... Sneak entry from a #SriLankan #a330 #a332.  How gorgeous are the #LATAM and #etihad liveries though?  #boeing #789 #787 #avgeek #spotting #holidays #instatravel
