Maui Honeymoon...

Last night we booked our plane tickets for the honeymoon! I have already posted about the second stop we'll be making in Kauai. So I thought I'd update everyone on our first stop, Maui. We've booked a room at the Westin on Ka'anapali beach.


I feel completely blessed to be going back to Hawaii. I'm really looking forward to exploring Maui and all the wonderful things it has to offer. We are staying in the more "touristy" area, but we've rented a car (convertible, of course!), so I know we'll be taking some road trips throughout the island while we are there.

A few things to do that are on the top of our list include driving the Road to Hana, checking out Haleakala National Park for a hike or bike ride, and eating at some good local restaurants. (Suggestions welcomed!)

We've also talked about taking a day trip to Lana‘i, Molokini, or Molokai island, we've heard good things about Trilogy tours. These sailing trips look cool because most of them offer the chance to snorkel once your reach the destination island. (Now, I'm not to big on snorkeling because the only time I tried it I had a really hard time relaxing and getting my breathing under control. I basically freaked out, gave up and spent the day laying on the beach while the rest of the group snorkeled and said it was a wonderful experience. I'm not going to let that bad experience hold me back though, I am going to try it again and I'm prepared to let myself relax in the water and enjoy the moment!!!)

So, the tickets are purchased, the cars are rented, the rooms are booked. Now all we need to do it pack our bags, get married and head off to those wonderful Hawaiian islands for 11 days of bliss!

Congadulations on going to hawaii for your honeymoon i just got back from my vacation with my wife and we loved it. I would definatly suggest going out to Molokini Crater it definatly has some of the best snorkeling in Maui, we ended up going with the Pride of Maui for our Molokini Tour we went out on their morning trip and had a great time and Used Trilogy Tours for our lanai trip both trips were great. You can book alot of your snorkeling tours from Maui Snorkeling Tours and get discounted prices just make sure you ask them for their current specials, they had a honeymoon special going on last month i would ask and see if that is still available it gave us 10% off on our trip which was great since taxes in Maui are a bit high. Good luck and have fun on your honeymoon!!!

Road to Hana is the craziest road you will ever drive on.

Molokai snorkeling was fantastic.

Haleakala crater bike trip is something to remember. But you have to start at like, midnight or something (and it's not easy; keep in mind you're biking up a volcano). Alternate option is to drive up at 3 a.m. for the sunrise. Either way, it's like a another planet up there at the top.
