“How fucking wonderful it is to watch a big ball on fire MELT TO THE OCEAN..” (Cosmic Gate) #kauai  #sunset  #hawaiianislands 

Oh, those south Maui sunsets. This one was at Mokapu Beach, which means “sacred island.”

Fantastic beaches, high waves for surfing and the rainforests are what usually drive tourists to Hawaii but equally as stunning are its waterfalls. Each one has its own charm. * * Hawaii is brimming with beautiful waterfalls. Over time, these waterfalls became famous as they are all unique and all the tourists wanted to take a look. Some waterfalls in Hawaii only appear when it rains, some kind of just flow down the side of a mountain, but Akaka Falls is different. It has a thick column of water that always seems to have a steady flow. That's what makes this one enticing and unique!* * We’d love to help you plan your trip so be sure to contact one of our experienced Travel Specialists at Kaleidoscope Travel and Cruise: Strathmore Center Mall Location: Kendra or Shelly at 403-934-9447 Country Lane Mall Location: Vicki at 403-934-2219 Email: info@kaleidoscopetravel.ca  • • • • #kaleidoscopetravelcruise  #hawaii  #Hawaiianislands  #honolulu  #visithonolulu  #travelHawaii  #visithawaii  #vacationplanning  #traveldestination  #travelgoals  #hawaiianwaterfalls  #funfacts

Had a blast creating the artwork for a brand new @parksproject  tee dedicated to Hawai'i’s parklands. I love the @parksproject  mission and am stoked to be a small part of it with this design. Every purchase supports conservation projects and volunteer hours in parklands all over the US parks system. I hope you’ll grab one and toss it on your back for the next time you go for a walk, skip, or jump in the park. 🏕 Link in bio to purchase.

Hawaii has a rich geological history that goes back millions of years to when the islands surfaced on the sea, formed by the power of volcanoes. For a long period of time, these volcanoes were able to form the most beautiful landscapes. ⁠ ⁠ Now, you can come face-to-face with an active volcano by visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It’s one of the few places in the world where tourists will go home with a truly unforgettable experience. Mauna Loa, Kilauea and Loihi are three active volcanoes in Hawaii. Mauna Loa is situated on the island of Hawaii while Kilauea can be seen at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Mauna Loa last erupted in 1984 and Kilauea has been continuously erupting since 1983. Loihi, meanwhile, is located underwater off the southern coast of Hawaii Island. It’s been erupting since 1996 and if it continues to do so, this growing seamount may just be visible at the surface adding a new island to the cluster.⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #hawaii  #hawaiianislands  #honolulu  #visithonolulu  #travelhawaii  #visithawaii  #vacationplanning  #traveldestination  #travelgoals  #volcanostory  #historyofhawaii  #funfacts  #authenticvacationdesigns  #syndiprokopichtraveladvisor  ⁠

Take a little wanderlust tour with me....and meet Kauai, Hawaii 😍 Did you know that geographically it’s the OLDEST of the Hawaiian islands? It’s also nicknamed “the garden island” due to the lush rainforest landscapes. The Garden Isle is a true adventurer’s playground. For those seeking a quieter pace, the island offers plenty of additional opportunities to explore local culture, history and more — including museums, historical landmarks, farmers markets and more. You can tour the film locations of more than 60 movies and TV shows, too. Have you visited Kauai? What is your must do while visiting? TIP: Hit that bookmark ribbon on the right hand side. Then, start a collection called “wanderlust”. Save this as your first drool worthy idea!

Laysan Albatross spend more than 90% of their lifetime at sea. They fly using "dynamic soaring" which allows them to use the small amount of wind produced by waves in order to power their flight. ... In 2015, invasive, predatory mice were discovered attacking albatross chicks and adults. These attacks resulted in injury, nest abandonment, and even death. Since more than 70% of the world's Laysan Albatross nest on Midway, this poses a risk to their global population. Luckily, you can help! Island Conservation and our partners are removing invasive mice from Midway in July 2020, but only if we raise the final $1 million necessary to complete the project. National Geographic photographer Frans Lanting and videographer Christine Eckstom have joined us as Albatross Ambassadors to help support this project. You too can become an ambassador and help save Midway's Albatross! … #islandconservation  #noextinctions  #midwayalbatross  #midwayatoll  #midway  #savemidway  #conservation  #invasivespecies  #miceattack  #albatross  #albatrossconservation  #seabirds  #hawaiianislands  #hawaii  #wildlifephotography  #bird  #seabird  #birdsofinstagram  #island  #islands  #seabirds 

"Listen to what she says with her eyes" 💚 - Victor Hugo

Since so many of you are asking me about the bling, swipety swipe -> • Fun lil story about my ring: I love more vintage, antique style & Brian loves the modern style so he combined the two! He really put so much time & effort into designing this, he picked out every single diamond himself to ensure it was the highest quality possible (why she sparkles so much 😏✨) & picked out the halo & band himself as well. So much better than I could have imagined 😭❤️

Maui, Hawaii, United States 🇺🇸 - Maui, known also as “The Valley Isle,” is the second largest Hawaiian island. - The island beloved for its world-famous beaches, the sacred Iao Valley, views of migrating humpback whales (during winter months), farm-to-table cuisine and the magnificent sunrise and sunset from Haleakala. It’s not surprising Maui has been voted "Best Island in the U.S." by Condé Nast Traveler readers for more than 20 years. - Maui lures travelers with an invigorating mix of natural beauty and outdoor fun, all shared with warm alohas. When it comes to outdoor recreation, Maui wins hands down. Ziplining into the giant canopy of green, mountain biking through lava flows and bamboo forests. Surfing through the barrel waves, and snorkeling through fish-filled reefs and coral. Or, simply driving up the most iconic adventure, the Road To Hana. It's all amazing and waiting for you on the Valley Isle. - Ready to visit Hawaii? Click the link in our bio for more!

On this date in 1959, President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared Hawaii the 50th state to enter the union! Previously a territory of the United States since 1898, it’s one of the smallest states, and the only one made up entirely of islands. Hawaii’s earliest inhabitants were Polynesians who settled there more than 1,000 years ago. In 1778, British explorer Captain James Cook named them the Sandwich islands in honor of his sponsor the Earl of Sandwich - thankfully, that name didn't stick. For eight years, Hawaii was my home. And despite the tropical heat and humidity, as well as island fever, getting to me after a while, I truly have fond memories of living on these beautiful islands. 🌴 #waybackwednesday  #history  #historyfacts  #historylesson  #hawaii  #hawaiilife  #hawaiianislands  #hawaiianhistory  #america  #unitedstates  #50  #50thstate  #50states  #honolulu  #oahu  #maui  #beach  #tropical  #paradise  #pearlharbor

Picture perfect! That's what comes into mind about the Hawaiian Islands. Imagine the ideal backdrop of majestic mountains, lush greenery, and skyblue waters. What you may not know is that a lot of great Hollywood titles were filmed in the Hawaiian Islands. It went further back as 1976 when it hosted giant apes and more recently in 1993, for dinosaurs. RomCom and adventure titles were the most common ones though. Hawaii also served as a⁣ backdrop to some favorite TV shows such as Magnum, PI, TV Series Lost and Hawaii 5-0. You can imagine how genuinely mesmerizing these islands are. If you are interested, I'd love to⁣ help you plan your trip so be sure to call me or send me an email when you're⁣ ready to start planning.⁣ ⁣ Email kathy@k3travel.com  for customized trip planning, travel consultations and resort bookings.
