Here’s a photo album featuring some of our favorite photos from our bucket list adventure in the tropical paradise of Maui, Hawaii. Our experiences included a helicopter ride, outrigger canoeing, paddle boarding, hiking along lava trails, learning to make poke, road tripping on the famous Road to Hana, and watching mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets.
Special thanks to…
Molokai is one of the most beautiful and spiritual places we’ve ever visited. It has the highest sea cliffs in the world, lush tropical vegetation, a fascinating history, and a population of beautiful souls. There is nothing touristy about Molokai. It is authentic, genuine and unpretentious. It’s what we imagined Hawaii to be before it became one of the world’s premiere tourists destinations.
Rick and I have an amazing partnership. We have been business partners for many years and have over 50 years of marriage between us, to other people! There is in fact, a Mrs. Griffin and a Mr. McKenna. Our spouses, Denise and Ralph, are the often-unsung heroes of our business partnership, keeping the home fires burning as Rick and I jet around the world writing about incredible places.
So, when Expedia released the results of the 2015 Expedia Heat Index, it got me thinking about romantic destinations, and a Hawaiian vacation I took with my mister that conjures up memories of love, luaus and leis.
