Island fever is a phrase people use to describe how bored they are, but I honestly cannot see how a person could be bored on Big Island. In my opinion, it's the best of all the Hawaiian islands. It offers such a wide variety of climates, geography, plants, animals and the people are so friendly. You can paddle board in the morning and be in the snow by the afternoon.
Some of my neighbors have never been to another Hawaii island, other than changing planes in Honolulu. I don't know how you choose to buy a vacation home on the Big Island if you haven't spent time on the other islands.
The island talks to you, I guess, or it doesn't. Big Island talks to me. I wish she would speak louder to my husband. He comes to Big Island because I'm so often here. Well, my idea to curb so-called island fever for my husband was to take him to Oahu. You can read more in my personal blog today and see all of the photographs of our second day in Honolulu at this link: Tips to Visit Pearl Harbor and Michel's at the Colony Surf.
