I’ll be 40 next July, and I want a big, special trip. I’ve always wanted to see flowing lava up close, preferably close enough to put a stick in it or something, even if that means suiting up, wearing special boots, paying lots of money, signing a waiver, sneaking in on my own, whatever. Viewing from a safe distance is easy—lots of places in the world to do that. But I want to get dangerously close.
I’m thinking Hawaii. Any recommendations/warnings? Places to stay, stuff to do, things to see? Great food is second on the list, liquor is right up there, seeing wild stuff, too. Cycling and snorkeling would be good, though I’m not so interested in scuba, or parasailing or jet skis or anything high-energy or dangerous like that. Except the lava. Gotta have the lava.
