Please read my travelogue for a day by day account of our trip!

My Mum took me to Maui when I was 5 years old and again when I was 8. Although I was quite young certain things about Maui never left me--the warm breeze, the waves crashing and the sweet smell of the Mauian breeze. I knew that one day I would return to turn these memories into reality again. Twenty-three years later (April 2006) I finally returned; this time with my husband. Once again my senses were overloaded. I think the overwhelming sensory stimuli is what makes Maui never leave you. You are forever permeated with the sights, sounds, smells and feelings from this magnificant place.

Smells of Maui:
The sweet fragrance from the pikake blooms.
The unique smell of the soft sand.

Sounds of Maui:
Waves crashing
Birds singing
Wind through the palm trees

Sights of Maui:
Beaches and shorelines
Underwater life

Feels? of Maui:
Warm breeze
Hot sun

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beauty, natural wonders, flowers

    Shalom, your trip to Maui sounds just like what I would like to treat my wife to on our 30th anniversary. Where did you find the Condo? Martin
