4 Days on the Island of Hawai’i

Stay: https://abnb.me/JpJdRXuyBsb We arrived around 5:30pm into Kona airport. Unfortunately, we had quite a long drive over to the Hilo side of the Island (about 2hrs).

2 Days in Himare

Stay: Sea View Hotel (great spot!) We arrived pretty late into Himare (around 9pm) so we decided to just get dinner at the hotel.

Valbone to Theth Hike

2 Days in Cardiff

Stay: Clayton Hotel Cardiff (right next to the train station so super convenient!) Day 1 As per usual with my trips with Kirsten and Matt we planned very last minute (aka the night before lol). We were hoping to go to the Cotswolds but alas there were no hotels and rental cars were way too…
