My 1st Trip to Maui!!

I just experienced my first trip to Maui in April..  It was fantastic!  I loved it so much I did not want to come home.  It was the tail end of whale season so we were able to see quite a few whales.  They would come right up beside the boat.  Even saw a full breach!

We also took the road to Hana and I must say the drive was BEAUTIFUL!  Long though..  It took almost 2 hrs to go about 45 miles.  Well worth it.  Then we stopped at the day spa and had a 1 hr massage.  Ohhh yeah.  I highly recommend doing THAT!

There are so many great places to eat.  I would say my favorite places were Roy's Restaurant, Bubba Gumps, Nick's Fish Market, Denny's (yes.. Denny's) and Mana Foods which is the BEST grocery store.  Mana foods is located in Paia.

I also went to Big Beach which was great.  And just down the road a little ways is a great place to go snorkeling along the lava reef.  Lots of colorful fish!

And the best part of the whole trip was Paragliding with ProFlyght!  I had about 2 hrs of training flights.  You can see my YouTube vids here:

I can't wait to go back!
