Travel Tuesday: The Big Island Part 1

Somewhere over the Rockies
I've started a new feature called Travel Tuesdays. Each week I'll post photos, recommendations, or itineraries from trips I've taken or am planning to take. You can see past posts here

Alex and I visited the Big Island of Hawaii in January/February 2014. We went for our delayed honeymoon (we were married in September and wanted to travel when Ohio weather is gross). We went to Molokai in November 2011 and fell in love, so it made sense to try out a new Hawaiian island.

The Big Island has Kona and Hilo, along with some of the most affordable Hawaiian real estate. We did an entire circuit of the island over ten days. Here's a small sample of photos from the first half of the trip where we started in Kona, took the main highway around South Point to Volcano, then over to Hilo.

One of our first stops. 
The Sheraton in Kona was lovely. We used AirBnB for the rest of the trip.
Milolii Beach
Alex's favorite beach burned my feet.
