we came, we saw, we ate a lot of banana bread {Maui part1}

Holy crap you guys! If you've never been to Hawaii, I demand that you add it to your bucket list! Immediately! I'm so glad we made the last minute decision to spend our honeymoon on the island of Maui. It is seriously the closest thing I've experienced to paradise: perfect weather, breath-taking scenery and friendly people. Not really knowing anything about the area we ended up on the touristy -but beautiful- Ka'anapali Coast.

Views from the hotel
As much as I love to lay out in the sun with a good mai tai, I also like to have "adventures" and fortunately for me, Travis is a willing participant. Our first adventure of the week was driving the infamous Road to Hana where we swam in the Seven Sacred Pools, explored sea caves bordering a black sand beach and hiked through a rainforest with the tallest bamboo trees I've ever seen!

Along the way we stopped (not once, but twice!) at roadside stands selling the most delicious, piping-hot, buttery banana bread...mmmm... oh, and the macaroons made with fresh coconut?? To die for.

On the way back to the hotel we were caught in a downpour and could not, for the life of us, get the top of the jeep to stay up. So we laughed, cranked up the tunes and enjoyed a beautiful rainbow...


  1. Those pictures are amazing. Looks like paradise. :)
