Trip of a Lifetime





















I went to Hawaii. I accomplished a lot on this trip. Did things I never thought I would do. Had the best time. In short I conquered Air, Land, and Sea all in twelve days.
There's nothing like plunging into the blue depths and coming face to face with a 20 foot tiger shark, only a piece of plexiglass separating you two.











Or walking up to watch the earth recreate itself not 600 feet away from you. Watching lava spew out into the ocean and admire the plumes of smoke as it rises into the sky.









Or taking the controls of a motorized hang glider as you soar peacefully over the earth.









How will I ever top this adventure? Well, it will sure be fun to try!
Here are some shots I managed to get while on the islands:
