Moving day. I spent the morning cleaning my AirBnB before I had to leave. Side note the owner of the condo asked for the sheets to be left in the bathtub. I’ve never heard of that before so it just seemed odd to me. After cleaning I was off to Kihei Cafe again for my daily breakfast. They noticed me this time which felt kind of cool. After breakfast a 45 minute gorgeous drive along the coast to Lahaina. Lahaina is where most of the nice hotels and restaurants are. When I arrived at the hotel I immediately felt immersed...

Today was all about relaxing and taking some time to just enjoy the ocean. I started out surfing at sunrise. A friend I met from the night before let me use his long board. There was a decent swell in Kihei so I went to the beach across the street from the condo I’m staying in.

Today I dined with...

Day 2 in Maui was amazing.  Started my day with walking down the beach to a cafe where I had an amazing breakfast. I ate outside where I found out my company would be birds and chickens. All very friendly but turned out they just wanted me for my food. Other than the beggars at my feet the breakfast was amazing. Something about drinking fresh squeezed orange juice sitting out next to the ocean that just makes you feel alive.  Across the street from the cafe is a beautiful park along the ocean. The grass feels so soft and well...

Day one of my trip to Hawaii was for the most part all travel and getting situated. First leg of flying was from Minneapolis to Seattle on Alask Airlines and then on from Seattle to Maui on Hawaiian Airlines. Both airlines truly impressed me. I have been getting used to flying budget airlines that even the smallest thing would have impressed me. Both airlines had amazing customer service, larger seats and more leg room, meals I didn’t have to pay for, power for my devices and just overall felt like I used to before airlines decided to go cheap.  The...
