Are you searching for paradise? Well, we found our idea of paradise in Maui, Hawaii!
Who knows? It might just be your idea of paradise too!
Paradise is a strong word, and I don't use it lightly. But Maui, Hawaii is truly a paradise in every way. It has glorious warm weather all year, with just enough of a breeze from the trade winds to keep you feeling refreshed. The tropical greenery and colourful flowers are spectacular, and there's nothing better than the relaxing sound of the surf crashing on the beach as you drift off to sleep every night.
We were looking for a place where we would find some relaxation...
... and lots of adventure to spice things up!
We found all this and more!
One of the best things about Maui, Hawaii is the huge variety of terrain and things to do - whether you're looking for jungles, beaches, forests, mountain streams, waterfalls, the ocean or even a volcano - you'll find it - I truly think that this enormous amount of variety is one of the things that makes Maui appealing to so many people!
Why did we choose this place over all of those OTHER tropical vacation spots?
It has SO many advantages over all of those places!
-you can drink the water and eat the food without worrying about
getting travelers diarrhea or some other horrid food or water-borne
-there aren't any poisonous snakes or spiders that can kill you (this is one of my PERSONAL phobias... so I put quite a bit of weight on this point!)
-you won't run into any mosquitoes on the beach, or when you're dining on an outdoor patio
-the weather is as close to perfection as you'll ever find -if you need a doctor, there are excellent American healthcare professionals to take care of you
-there is no malaria here
-it's SAFE - unlike so many other topical locales, Maui, Hawaii has no need for armed soldiers to patrol the airport or the gates of your resort
What can I say? I'm completely smitten with this island... perhaps even a little obsessed!
