Hawaii Trip 2013, Summary!

Overall we had a wonderful relaxing, and yet stimulating/educational, time exploring Hawaii together this year. Teisha had a lot of fun firsts (snorkeling, lots of snorkeling, exploring a rain forest, experiencing a luau, and just visiting Hawaii) and both Andrew and Teisha had some amazing firsts together (swimming with dolphins, poking hot lava!!, and just exploring so many neat places together, like Hilo and the surrounding area). We made several day-by-day posts on Paradoxdruid’s Rants, which we thought we’d compile together in this (belated) post. Below the links to the posts is a link to trip photo gallery.

Okay, I’ll admit that it’s entirely possible that I am the last person to learn about this website*, but it’s really addictive.
