Now we’re here at our last stop before heading back to Sweden, Hawaii. We took a flight from NYC to Hawaii and left our beloved minibus behind us. We will be staying here 7 days, which is the longest amount of days we’ve been staying somewhere during this trip. We’re living in a bungalow which is another “must do” thing on my bucket list! It’s like a hut in the water, really exotic.
We’ve been here for 5 days now so we have been up to a lot of things. Every day we try something new. Yesterday we decided to go surfing! Yes, it was very hard but it was so fun, the hours just flew by and suddenly it started to get dark. So we went home and I took a shower, and then we took a walk to a restaurant nearby. I tried some typical and traditional dishes, for example; Poi, laulau and Chicken long rice. Apparently poi is like a pudding made from the taro root. The taste was special but not bad. Laulau is pork wrapped in layers of taro leaves and have a smoky taste, I loved it. Chicken long rice is just mung bean noodles cooked in chicken soup.
Today we visited Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the greatest and most spectacular experience in my life!! It was amazing and there’s nothing you can compare with this. There are 3 active volcanoes on Hawaii but only two of them are in the National park. One of them has been active since 1983, 30 years!
As you may know, this is our last stop before we take the flight back home to Sweden. It feels nice to come home again, but I love to travel and move place to place, so of course I will miss this. But I will definitely do this again! I will bring all my new experiences and memories back home to Sweden and try to do as much as I can with the last days we’ve got here.
