Adventures in Hawaii – THE BIG ISLAND was made during my trip to Hawaii in March 09. Name The Big Island is actually a nickname. The real name of the island is Hawaii, but it is more known by its nickname. This island is vast in comparison to Maui and Oahu and offers all kinds of climates, from green ranches to dessert like terrain in the center, to winter/snow conditions on top of Mauna Kea witch is 4207m above sea level and you can drive right to the top!!! This is the only place on earth where you can go swimming in the sea with temperatures around 30 degrees celsius and in about 2 hours of driving later you are standing on top of Hawaii with temperatures reaching -8 degrees celsius, a lot of snow and wind gusts as you were in the middle of winter in colorado :) (this was my experience). There are so many things to see on this island and every single one of them is amazing!
This was the last island I visited during my stay on Hawaii islands and I must say it was an unbelievable trip. Here is video I put together from some random memories around the island.
