Overnight: Hawaii's Big Island Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Hawaii Beach Expedia

From the YouTube video (produced by Expedia)

The Island of Hawai'i is also known as the Big Island. Green jungles, blue waves and red hot lava please the senses on this North Pacific island with its equally colorful Polynesian history.

Find most resorts and attractions around Kailua-Kona on the west coast. To see green sea turtles, visit Kahalu'u bay or Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park. For a break from beaches, the grand Hulihe'e Palace and the sacred site of Pu'uhonua are worth exploring.

Your mileage may vary, but I lived in Hawaii years ago and did not find it overly expensive, which I loved. It was a pleasant place to be with friendly people. Aloha!

Enjoy!

Mid-Day Distraction: Coke Can Meets Molten Lava

Share

lava

From the 'About' section on YouTube:

Lava flow and two cans of Coca Cola. The first can had a tiny hole punched in the top to prevent it from randomly exploding. I wanted to see if it would fountain as it heated up but, the can just sort of squirted coke.

The second can was sealed but, fell over. The lava caused a leak on the lower side. Footage is first from my Nikon D800 and then my old GoPro Hero 2. I had to pull the GoPro away at the end not from the spraying coke but, due to its proximity to the quick moving lobe of lava.

The lava was flowing a bit too cool causing it to be less fluid.
This series of videos is scientific in nature seeing how differing sealed objects react to the 2000 degree lava hitting it. If anyone's worried this is littering, relax. These items all melted.
