When I lived in Hawai'i, I only made it over to the island of Maui for a quick day trip. I was kind of bummed, but no one else wanted to spend the money on it and most of my friends had done a week long cruise of the islands and had already seen Maui. I assumed my next chance to get back there and actually SEE the island would be when I'm married, perhaps on my honeymoon. I had no clue it would happen a short two years later.
To make a long story short, the trip that my parents and I were supposed to take to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last May ended up being cancelled two weeks before we were to leave-- thank you swine flu and drug lords. We ended up getting the week back for our timeshare, plus our airfare, plus an additional 1500 dollars in ticket vouchers. We were lucky. Anyhow, (long story short, remember), my mom and I ended up doing a girls trip to Maui the very week we should have been in Mexico. And if you've read, um, half of one of my posts, you know how much I am obsessed with all things Hawai'i, so I was one ecstatic chica. Our condo was in the beautiful, picturesque town of Lahaina with a view of the island of Lana'i. It was, by and large, the very best vacation I have ever gone on. Ever. I doubt it will ever be outdone. Unless I convince my Ma to make it an annual trip, in which case, they will all be the best trip ever ;)
The following are pictures from the trip. There is some beautiful Hawaiian Steel Guitar music that accompanies the pictures, so make sure your sound is on if you want to hear it :)
Wake Up, Fools!
