After 3 wonderful weeks spent with steph, she left me on 19th august to fly back from San francisco to London. It was very tough to be separated after spending so much time together, we had our routine although we did different things everyday. It was fantastic to be able to share those adventures and moments. Then she left and I was heartbroken and I couldn't see myself staying in San Francisco any longer, too many memories. So I decided to go to Hawaii to cheer myself up!
I took a flight this morning from s.f to Honolulu, then a connection flight to Hawai'i the big island and I am staying in a cute hostel. I will
spend 6 nights on this island before going to Kuai, Oahu and Maui.

Big Island, Hawaii

4 of us ventured to the lava flow to see the Kilauea lava from the Kalapana region. Kilauea Volcano has been erupting for 17 years on the Big Island of Hawaii.

It was an awesome experience to watch lava flowing into the ocean, I struggle to find the adequate words to describe it.This experience will definitely remain one of the main highlight of my trip.

We were able to see the lava during daylight hours, sunset and afterwards.We had a very difficult time walking because of the uneven and hardened surface. You feel the heat coming from the rocks. It feels like you could touch the lava (I didn't really touch it) but at some point you feel like the lava is around you and you can't afford to fall as the rocks are too hot.
Once of a lifetime experience that I can't forget.
