Maui Trip Report – November 2009

One of my first trip reports ever! In 2009, Steve and I were newlyweds and we were looking for a location to spend our 1st anniversary. We decided on Maui because:

  • it’s far enough but not tooo far from NYC
  • we love going to warm tropical places with great food and culture.
  • we had both been as children with our families, but never together as a couple – that nice new, yet familiar, feeling
  • we thought it was the perfect location since we both love Hawaii. We had gone to Oahu about 4 years before getting married and we had a blast.

Some background on our trip:

  • 7 days/nights on Maui
  • Flights: JFK to OGG on United. Stopover in Chicago
  • Hotel: Split stay –  4-nights at the Maui Coast Hotel in Kihei then 3 nights at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua
  • Car rental: a convertible via Alamo
  • Originally this trip report was posted on Hawaii forum (hi fellow Fororites!), I formatted it for this blog so you can enjoy it with pictures.
