Chances that you’ve been one of the lucky few that actually catch when airlines make an oops and accidentally set affordable prices that go to places like Hawaii? Maybe pretty low, but 6 years ago, my family did. I found these photos while saving mine on backup and thought I would do a little bit of a throwback post like I did with Italy.
It was one of those things that was just meant to be. Taking off of school for a week was definitely a plus. While we might have had a close call missing our connection to Maui, we still made it and it is still definitely one of my favorite trips by far. We spent a week in Maui and it was amazing. I got freckles on my nose from the sun, and ate amazing fresh fruit, and delicious homemade banana bread from a little green hut. I never wanted to leave.
We also visited Honolulu on our last leg of the trip and had to take photos on the beach.
Waking up to watch the sunrise on top of a crater on Maui? Yes worth it. Do it if you’re ever there.
Because then you pretend like you’re driving off the end of the world, but you’re not.
We saw so many whales (we were there in late March/beginning of April and there was so much wildlife). Being a huge fan of animals, I was definitely loving life.
Of course experiencing a luau is also mandatory.

We also had a convertible, and braids were definitely the go-to style.
I loved Hawaii so much, even though I haven’t been there for 6 years (ugh that seems like so long yikes) I really would go back again! I mean, sun, fresh food, the beach, what else could you really need?
Have any of you ever been to Hawaii? Did you like it? Where has your favorite vacation spot been in your life so far? Anything exciting coming up? I’ve got one that I’m counting down to at the end of May! (can summer please hurry up?)
What’s your favorite fruit?
