I’m writing this before we head to Maui for a week. While there, we’ll be celebrating a daughter’s wedding, a grand-daughter’s birthday, Saint Patrick’s Day, and try to cram in some relaxing.
We love being on the water. We love watching whales at this time of year. We love hanging by the pool. We love trying new restaurants. We love just driving around the island. We love being tourists. But we love knowing some of the local hangouts and secrets for life on the island.
It took a couple of trips, but when we were last on Maui in 2013, I finally found and visited Charles Lindbergh’s final resting place near Hana.
Each trip has seemed to focus on something. Finding the Seven Sacred Pools. Finding the graveyard. Whales. Turtles.
This may be the first trip with no “must do” or “must see.”
Other than getting a daughter married. That’s the primary focus of this trip. That and then we’ll concentrate on relaxing.
We’ve had some hard news in our family recently and we’re ready for a brief respite from real life.
Where do you like to go to escape from real life?
