hawaii was amazing!
Sunday. 9.12.04 9:10 pm
ok, so i am not sure that my vacation could have been any better. mike and i went to hawaii for the first time. we stayed in maui for a week. below is the play by play of our trip:
arrive in maui in the afternoon. man, the sun is hot here. so we go to hertz to pick up our rental car and they tell us that they are out of the one was reserved and they have to upgrade us. that sounds good, we smirked. unfortunately, we got upgraded to a Ford Taurus. now i really can't see how the Taurus is an upgrade to anything but what the hell we are in hawaii. so we left with the Tarus and headed the hour to our hotel. we stayed at the ritz-carlton and man was it impressive. we got a great deal because it was the off season but found out later that they screw you with the price of food. anyway, our room overlooked the three swimming pools and the pacific ocean. sweet!
the first thing we did was head down the restaurant for the breakfast buffet. it was outstanding. mike went back for waffels 4 times. i was shocked over the price which was $25 per person. wtf! indignation aside, we ate there 4 times during our stay. after breakfast, we returned the Taurus and got a Jeep Wrangler. much better! i loved driving with the top down! we spent most of the day laying by the pool and planning out the rest of our trip. when we got back to the room i noticed that i was already sunburned even after lathering a ton of spf 30 all over before setting foot out in the sun. oh well. we had dinner at bubba gump shrimp in lahina. pretty fun.
we drove the Jeep to the haliakala carter. before going all the way to the top, we stopped off at sykline eco-adventures to have some fun on ziplines. we went on four different ziplines of increasing difficulty. the first one was pretty easy so i wasn't very nervous. the last one on the other hand was about 1 1/2 mile above a ravine and about 1000 yards long. we ended up going about 45 miles an hour on this one. it was totally cool. i would post the picture of me doing this but it shows me in the harness with my white belly peaking out under my t-shirt. not attractive at all. after the zip lines we hiked around the crater. now i have heard from many of my friends and coworkers that it is the most fun to ride down the volcano on mountain bikes. we saw them coasting down while we were driving up there. no offense but it looked ridiculous. i mean all you are doing is coasting down some road. the view isn't all the great and it is totally paved. it's not even like you are doing any mountain biking at all. yawn! anyway, the hike was pretty neat. we have hiked around mt saint helens and it was surprisingly different.
the road to hana. now i wasn't sure if we were going to take this drive. i was warned that the road was very narrow and twisty. this usually is a sure way for me to get car sick but we braved it because the Jeep was great and could fix anything. and it pretty much did. we had a great time and didn't crash once. we stopped off at a botanical garden on the way and took some great pics. apparently the opening scene to jurrasic park was filmed from there. neat! we stopped at hana for a quick snack and headed onto the seven sacred pools. the pools looked great but we forgot our suits so we just hiked around the pools and took pictures. off we went to continue our drive. i think the round trip took around 8 1/2 hours. now that's alot of driving.
this was our absolute favorite day in hawaii. we took a 6 hour hike/kayak/snorkel tour. first we hiked the nakalailai point. the views were amazing and the hike was pretty challenging. there was one woman on the tour who was excepting a gentle hike in a botanical garden. whoops. i couldn't help snickering a little when she was trying to keep her balance. yes, i know it's bad but what can i say. anyway, after the great hike, we got dropped off at the beach for the kayak. mike and i have kayaked before so it wasn't that difficult. we saw several sea turtles from our boat. one of them came right toward us and dove under our kayak. it was totally cool. so, next was the snorkel. i was not at all convinced that i was going to do this. i like swimming where it belongs, in the pool. i'm not a big fan of swimming around with nature all around me wanting me to get the hell our of their territory. well, the cute tour guide convinced me that i was safe so i went ahead and did it. it was pretty cool but not something i would go out of my way to do again. at the end of the trip the cute tour guide told me about how he was bitten by a shark when he was 17. i didn't believe him until he showed me this enormous gash on his calf. he grinned and he he waited until after i went snorkeling so i didn't back out. whatever, he was cute.
when we got back to the hotel i ran off to the salon to get my hair done for our luau. my up do turned out great with a couple of flowers added for effect. when in hawaii... the luau was pretty cool. i hated all the food but we were there for the entertainment. the dancers were very fun to watch. i was very tempted to get a tatoo after watching them. one girl had a tatoo of the hawaiian islands on her right hip moving down under her skirt. very sexy but somewhat stripperish.
the next day we decided to do another tour with the same company since we liked the other one so much. unfortunatly, the cute guy wasn't there. this time it was the ugly annoying guy. as we made small talk we told him about our last tour and the about the guide with the shark attack story. he burtst out laughing saying the the injury was from a fork lift accident. whatever, he was cute. anyway, this hike was to the waterfall. it wasn't as cool because of the annoying guide and the fact that all the waterfalls were dried up. we hiked for a about 2 1/2 miles to a man made waterfall and swimming hole. mike and i stripped down to our swimming suits and quickly made our way to the pool. wrong. it was freezing cold and the bottom was coverd with rocks which made it hard to walk. we made to over to a big rock and got some sun while others braved the cold water. the return trip was more fun because mike and i went ahead of the pack and made it down well ahead of them. some of this had to do with wanting to be alone mostly, we just had to pee and the porta poty was at the base of the hike.
dinner was at kobe steakhouse in lahina. it is a habatchi place like Beni Hana but much better. By far the best dinner while we were there. day 8
day of rest and packing
head back to home sweet home.
