Countdown to Maui.
Yesterday the countdown to Christmas officially kicked-off with my Advent Calendar, and today I wanted to share a personal countdown that I am starting. Traveling is one of my biggest passions and I am very lucky that I get to travel for the blog a lot. However, I still feel like there is a difference between traveling and vacationing. In exactly 1 month from today I will be boarding a plane in Vancouver to travel to Maui. Since Mike has family in Canada, we like to spend NYE there, and to kick-off the new year we are heading to one of my dream destinations. Hawaii has always been on my travel wishlist, so this year I decided to take things into my own hands and planed a week on the island as a birthday / MBA graduation gift for Mike. I know, self-praise stinks, but how awesome is that for a present? Of course, it wasn’t 100% unselfish, since I’ll be accompanying him to Maui. This is literally the most excited I have been about a trip for a long time and I can’t wait to see if Hawaii really is as magical as everyone always say.
On that note, I’d love your recommendations for restaurants, secret beaches or the best spots along the road to Hana. We have a rental car for the entire week, so the plan is to explore as much as possible – suggestions are very welcome!
