I debated on whether or not to make a blog post about my trip to the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii for quite some time:
“Would I be able to write an entire post about this?”
“Do I try and make a story out of this?”
“What should I do, and how the heck will I format this?”
Let me just start this off by saying that Hawaii was NOT the original spot I wanted to visit.
I know, shocker.
You see, I had this vision in my mind ever since my sophomore year of high school that shortly after my graduation, my grandmother and I would travel to the wonderful town of London, England and embark on many adventures filled with sightseeing, British cuisine and internal debates of whether I should try a pint at a local pub (I’m 18 and live in the U.S., but I only wanted to try a pint of beer or lager for cultural enrichment and not because I’m the average American teenager/adult that thinks getting blackout hammered is “fun”.)
However due to current terror-related incidents and my lack of urgency when it came to applying for a passport, my grandmother and I settled on Hawaii as our post-graduation destination.
I mean, who am I to complain? At least I was traveling, right!?
So after a long flight from Seattle, WA (I was visiting family at the time), I had finally set foot upon Hawaiian land.
Being a Florida gal, I didn’t think that there would be a huge difference between the weather here and that of Hawaii, but boy, was I wrong. Sure, both climates are relatively warm, but Maui was much windier and less hellishly humid. Ah, perfection.
Sadly, there isn’t much for me to write about in terms of this vacation other than it was everything that I had hoped for.
I wanted this trip to be completely relaxing after the four years of craziness (and may I say, hell) that was my time in the International Baccalaureate program. But I had also wanted an element of exploration included. Needless to say, I got my hikes up to beautiful, breath-taking waterfalls in as well as lazy days relaxing on the finer sands of Hawaiian beaches.

Also, tracking down all of the pictures that I had taken was a giant hassle. Luckily, thanks to my late night tradition of posting on Facebook before bed, I was able to download them all.
But despite the hassle finding visual content for this post was, I’m glad that I did end up deciding to publish it.
So for your viewing pleasure, I arranged all of the photos onto the grid below. Enjoy!
