maui revealed, day 1

I've seen about six other tourists holding this guide book so far all sticky-noted up, including ourselves (thanks Joe & Emily). I'm sure there are countless others hiding this gem in their fanny packs too.

With the exception of our flight being delayed over two hours at LAX, our holiday in Maui has been incredible. Joe and Emily recommended renting the cottage they rented back in August, and oh my gosh, it's beautiful! We arrived to the cottage close to midnight on Monday, so it was too dark to see anything. When we woke up early Tuesday morning, we woke up to this breathtaking view from our room:



The agenda for our first day in Maui was a helicopter ride covering all of the island, buying over-priced groceries, and relaxing at the cottage.







I took a walk around the property at sunset, during Rob's four-hour nap, and snapped these pics:


This is a view of our place from the pool area

Day two sneak peak: a volcano walk around at 10,000 feet, a bike ride beginning at an elevation of 8,000 feet, and a massage.
