Maui, HI

Maui, do I need to say more? I thought this was a great location to kick start my new travels section of my photography page. I wanted to be able to share some amazing places with you on my travels as they continue throughout the years. I do not travel as much as I would really like to but I am always trying to find new ways to get as much exploring of this beautiful world as possible. 

Maui, HI is like a second home to me and it had been awhile since we were last together, 4 years to be exact. That is too long of seperation in my book. Thankfully my dad pulled me along for our family trip this year and I couldn't have been more excited and thankful. I was anticipating and looking forward to that humid air to smack me in the face when I got off the plane, the warm sand beneath me and the views. Let me just say a week is never enough time on the island, but I did manage to try and squeeze as much as I could in during the time.  

Thank you Tata for an yet another amazing time on Maui! I had an amazing time revisiting some of our favorite spots!

Here are some tips if you are traveling to Maui in the future:

1. You have to stop by the local farmers market for fresh fruit (usually off the sides of the freeway), its simple the best you will ever have!

2. Get up at 2am (yes that early) to head up to Haleakala to watch the sunrise, it is worth it! You are literally above the clouds! And don't worry you can just take a nap on the beach later anyway. 

3. You have to stop by a little restaurant that no one ever knows about, Aloha Mixed Plate, I call it a hidden treasure. It is the best pulled pork you will ever consume!

4. Twin Falls hike is a great spot to check out and swim underneath a waterfall if you are not wanting to do the intense road to Hana excursion. 

5. Finally make sure to plot your tush in the sand at the beach every evening to enjoy that gorgeous sunset!
