We satisfy our pancake crave in Hilo, Hawaii by visiting the local cult favorite, Ken’s House Pancakes in the summer of 2017 . I was amazed to find a 24-hour diner on the Big Island. This restaurant is very unique, always super crowded and has a huge variety of food choices on top of their HUGE Pancakes. Find out why Ken’s Diner is one of the best restaurants on the Big Island and should be on your itinerary when you visit Hawaii . Did I mention that it’s frequented by professional wrestlers ?
We explore the Kona side of the Big Island in our summer of 2017 Hawaii series. In an attempt to avoid an expensive tour we don’t need, we decide to simply rent kayaks from a local company to try to find Dolphins at Kealakekua Bay ! Afterwards, we head back to town to eat authentic poke for the first time and then show you why Kona has one of the best sunsets in all of Hawaii Island.

This may be the best volunteer opportunity ever . While living in Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii we discovered you can take shelter dogs out on a field trip for the whole day and have them join you on your adventures. You are provided with all of the essential items you would need to care for the dog, and even help promote permanent adoption to local residents. We took Miracle out, and she was an absolute treat as she joined us for a fun day at Liliuokalani Gardens in Hilo ! We vlog the whole experience from start to finish. If you are visiting the Big Island even for a few days, this is one activity you MUST do if you love animals. If anyone is interested in adopting Miracle or taking part in this program I am leaving a link to it below. Please share this with your friends visiting Hawaii Island and be sure to subscribe if you are new .
