Can a vacation change your life? I can only hope so! Max and I just got back from 9 days in Hawaii and seriously, I wanted to stay. Totally fell in love! The weather was great - warm sun, cool breeze... The people were so nice, definitely experienced the Aloha spirit.
We spent three days on the Big Island in Kaimu. We stayed at the Ma'ukele Lodge and I'm so glad we did! Raven and Mark were wonderful and we had a really authentic Hawaiian experience. I wish we had stayed longer!
After leaving from the Big Island, we spent 6 days at Disney's Aulani Resort on Oahu. It was a "cleansed" version of Hawaii but wonderful in its own way. We went horseback riding at the Kualoa Ranch - my first time riding a horse! I was terrified at first but once I got a little more comfortable, I was able to enjoy the scenery and talk with our guides. After two hours I was definitely sore but the next day wasn't too bad.
Still trying to get over the 6 hour time difference. Will post more pictures later!
Have you ever been to Hawaii? What did you love most?
