Hawaii Highlights

My husband and I are back in Chicago after an amazing vacation in Hawaii! The time we spent on Kauai and Maui was so wonderful -- we feel so lucky to have been able to take the time to travel there! I can't say I preferred one island over the other -- they were both unique and equally beautiful. Here are a few highlights in photos from our trip:

Top to bottom
Hiking and lookout point in the Waimea Canyon -- Kauai
French toast with pineapple, macadamia nuts & coconut syrup -- Kauai
Shipwreck Beach near our resort -- Kauai
Catching some rays at our resort -- Maui
Checking out the ocean view -- Maui
Swimming under a waterfall that we kayaked and hiked to -- Kauai
The lava shelf at the Olivine Pools -- Maui
Olivine Pools -- Maui
Napali Coast lookout -- Kauai
Jack Johnson concert -- Maui

If you're headed to Hawaii in the near future, let me know if you have any questions about Kauai or Maui! We did a lot of research before we left, and I am happy to recommend sites to see on either island! I also highly recommend both resorts we stayed at -- The Grand Hyatt in Kauai and The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua in Maui. Aloha!
