When I look through the pictures I took in Hawaii, I am still in awe how beautiful this world is.
The thing about Hawaii is that you know it is beautiful and you know you will like it because it just looks like a freaking paradise on every picture you see and then when you actually get there, your expectations are being surpassed.
When I got to the Maui airport after a long, exhausting, traveling day and just felt the warm, humid air on my skin, heard the birds chirping and smelled the ocean, it was indeed like arriving at a paradise.
Because I got to our condo late night, I didn’t get to see the landscape before the next day. And yeah, it was breathtaking. The palm tress which were moving in the wind in front of our patio, the waves which broke at the beach, my girls who were happy to have me back (and me, who was happy to have them back:)).
Everything felt so magical.
When my host family showed me the island that same day, it was like being in a dream. I saw turtles in the water, chickens walking around randomly, and sweet surfer boys. We went to a beautiful beach, I tried shaved ice for the first time and I had to remind myself all the time that I am on freaking Maui.
I just enjoyed the time there and I had so much fun with my host family. We joined a Luau, which is basically an event where you can watch real Hula and Fire Dancers, have traditional Hawaiian food and get to know a bit more about the history of this special state. It was really cool and I would recommend joining one to everyone but I think my favorite part was when they gave me one of the typical flower necklaces and took a family picture. It’s such a lovely picture and I will treasure it forever.
We spent the most time at different beaches and pools, had good food and just so much fun. On the last day I watched the most magical sunset I’ve ever seen in my life.
I am just so grateful for this experience. But now, let the pictures speak and I hope you enjoyed this short text about my impressions of Maui 🙂
Thank you so much for reading and see you in my next post!
