All the Details About Our Trip to Maui, Hawaii

Hey, Hi, Hello. Is this thing on? Yeah remember that time we went to Maui for my sister's wedding? You're right it will be a year in MAY. Well, yours truly figured it was time to share details about our trip. Can you believe it? I can't. I'm still waiting to read a recap about our Mazatlan trip few years ago. Maybe tomorrow....


Traveling with a toddler is crazy. If you can afford to bring a nanny with you, do it. This way no one has to miss out during said toddler's 3 hour, middle of the day, nap. If your toddler has FOMO don't even try napping at the beach, poolside, etc.

STAY:
We stayed in the sleepy town of Wailea. While my sister stayed at the Andaz, which we reaped the befits of, we decided to rent a condo a block down the street via VRBO. It was easy and affordable. I highly recommend this avenue if you have small children. We were able to rent a crib for the week making the sleeping arrangement with a toddler smooth sailing, aside for the three hour time difference.

PLAY:
We hit the beach every day from morning walks, lounging and building sand castles. Maui offers an array of activities such as blow holes, the Road to Hana, Bamboo forests, endless waterfalls, and volcanos which is also the best place to watch the sun rise.

While we weren't able to do everything we did make it to HANA, experienced a luau and enjoyed plenty of beach time.

It wasn't Emerson's first beach experience, but she wasn't too sure about.




THE ROAD TO HANA:
It's a long twisty and narrow road, but we made it. The views and stops along the way were worth it. I'll let the pictures do the talking.







EAT:
Everywhere! Although we took full advantage of our kitchen we made sure to enjoy all the fresh fresh we could.

WEDDING BLISS:
Thinking about running away to get married? I suggest Maui...


Whew.... if you're still with me YAY! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for another vacation!
