Where he finally put a ring on it ;)
17.01.2020 - 27.01.2020
While the world is experiencing a lockdown/quarantine/isolation due to a pandemic, I figure it's as good a time as ever to update the travel blog with the last opportunity we had to travel in a 'normal' world!
Brett and I have decided January is just the best time to get out of Edmonton. We also feel extremely lucky to have enjoyed one amazing trip in 2020 before things were basically turned upside down.
We stayed in Kihei, which was a great spot from which to start the beach hopping. On our first couple days, we hit up La Perouse Bay,
and Po'olenalena Beach.
The first full day adventure was the Road to Hana... full of waterfalls,
and of course.. beaches!!
Our next big adventure was a helicopter ride.
We took a route along the upper west coast of Maui, over to the island of Moloka'i,
The vistas were incredible.
And we finished off that amazing day with yet another beach! Charley Young Beach.
Next up, a hike in the Iao Valley...
And now, my favorite day! We made the drive up to the crater in Haleakala National Park. Skipping the absurdly early morning for a sunrise, we opted for a later start and stopped at a couple viewpoints on the way up,
Then headed to the Sliding Sands Trail,
Before returning to the crater for sunset,
Turns out this is now my favorites sunset, as Brett proposed just as the crowd was dispersing. We had a beautiful moment together while the sunset lit up the sky <3
We ended our trip with a drive up to Kapalua,
A quick visit with my cousins Brendan and Sonja,
Special thanks to Sonja for taking our Maui engagement photo!
I even managed to get a couple photos with my traveling pineapple.
Beautiful, lush, warm, sunny. Maui did not disappoint!
