After a wonderful week in Maui, I am back in Vienna today fighting a pretty hefty jet lag. The struggle is real – especially at 4pm! To stay awake, I’ve decided to start with my first post from our Hawaiian vacation for you. Aloha Maui! I seriously can’t tell you how beautiful the island is, how wonderful our hotel was and how sunny the weather was. We got to explore a lot and I think like we got a fairly good feel of the island. There is so much to share and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on some of the things we did, since I know a few of you have been to Hawaii before.
First up, however: Getting leid upon arrival! I have to admit, I was pretty excited about this one. I think a lei made of pretty flowers is something that pops into most of our heads when we think of the Hawaiian islands. Just the thought of receiving such a beautiful gift made me happy, and sure enough we were greeted with a pink flower lei and a kukui nut lei (for Mike) as well as some ginger-mint lemonade at the hotel. The perfect start to a perfect vacation!
“The most popular concept of a lei in Hawaiian culture is a wreath of flowers presented upon arriving or leaving as a symbol of affection and appreciation.”
