Maui Birthdaycation: Travel Day

A L O H A !

I mentioned in my last post how I started the year with a birthday trip to Maui, and today I’m going to start sharing my travel diary of all that we did!

Here’s a quick overview of Day 1:

Date: Monday, January 2nd
Itinerary: Drive to Seattle, fly out at 5:15pm, land at 9pm, get rental car, check into condo
Highlight: Being greeted by the warm weather at Maui’s open-air airport!
Favorite eats: This was just a travel day, but I’ll go ahead and say the cheese tray I always get on my long Alaska flights :)
Drink of the day:  Um, obv the complimentary mai tais on our flight! ;)

Our trip begin on January 2nd. We left our freezing temps and snow behind and flew out of Seattle at 5pm. We fly Alaska, and my favorite thing about the Hawaii flights are the complimentary mai tais you get on the way there! Cheers to vacation.

We landed in Maui at 9pm (Hawaii time, 11pm our time), immediately welcomed with 70 degree weather. Hallelujah! We were shuttled to Alamo to pick up our rental car and then headed to our condo. Although it was dark, we could still hear the ocean right outside. We unpacked our bags to hang up our clothes and called it a day.

Our condo was Kihei Sands – a smaller condo with a great location. I’m thinking about doing a post dedicated to our condo after my travel diary. Until then, tune in to my next post where I’ll share our first full day of birthdaycation!
