From Waikiki to Wailea: Maui

So, it appears that it has been more than two months since my last post. Whoops! Just know that the Warblers have been busy. Busy snatching up houses! OK, only one house. We are officially homeowners! It was a very long and stressful process, we were in escrow for more than 60 days. The week that we closed, Mr. Warbs had to go to Houston for work which left me to deal with packing, moving and furniture deliveries by myself. But, we're in the house now and that's all hat matters. Now, shall we commence with the honeymoon recap?

That's more like it!

After a busy week in Oahu, we were more than ready to relax in Maui. In fact, that's pretty much all we did in Maui. We hung out and relaxed in our pimped out condo. We managed to get a good deal at the Outrigger Palms in Wailea. I would definitely recommend the company. Our condo came equipped with a huge kitchen, living room, balcony, deck and two bathrooms.


The kitchen was fully equipped with cookware and supplies!

  This shower was big enough for 3 or 4 people!

HUGE Private balcony

Even though we were super close to the beach, we probably spent most of our time in Maui just lounging around the condo. After Oahu, it was nice to spend the rest of our honeymoon just winding down. Of course, we did manage to leave our cave long enough for the Road to Hana. Even though you can drive on your own, we decided to take a guided tour. I'm glad we did too because parts of the road are really dangerous to drive on. There are a ton of sharp curves and one lane bridges.

Apparently, you also have to look out for people out for a stroll.

As you can probably expect from Hawaii, the trip was gorgeous. The road passes by dozens of waterfalls, cliffs, beaches and miles of rainforest. The trip there and back to our condo took around 10 hours, including sight seeing, breakfast and lunch.


On the way back we saw the biggest rainbow I've ever seen in my life.
Our tour guide said it was a good sign from the gods!

We also drove to  Lahiana for a luau. I was excited because I had never seen a luau before, but in all honesty, we probably should have skipped it. The experience consisted of a lukewarm buffet, watered down drinks and of course the show. Most of the dancing felt awkward, the only part I really enjoyed was the fire twirling , because who doesn't like fire? I wouldn't go again, but I figure it's something you have to do if you're in Hawaii.

Ok, well, that's impressive.

 At least the dancers weren't bad looking.

Like I said earlier, the remaining days of our honeymoon were spent lazing around our condo. Some days we went to shopping or to the beach.

This boogie board was awesome. You could hardly tell I was trying not to drown!

But most of the time, we grilled up some food, drank wine and watched amazing Hawaiian sunsets from our balcony.


Gah, I miss Hawaii!

We had a ton of fun in both Oahu and Maui, but Maui was by far the most relaxing. Sometimes it's good to just do nothing, even if you are on vacation. It was the perfect ending to our Hawaiian honeymoon!

Soooo, it's time for wedding recaps! Are you guys ready? Let's go!
