The Adventures of a Traveling Twirly Girl

My friends got married in Maui on 10/10/10.  So, this Twirly Girl grabbed her boy and took a trip!  We stayed at the Maui Coast Hotel in Kihei.  We did some shopping in Lahaina (found a pole studio there; wish I had gotten the starfish ring!!!) and Makena.  Visited Big Beach in Makena (and the ocean ate me up and spit me out, practically naked; we avoided Little Beach, though, which is supposed to be a nude beach).  Went to a luau (fun fire show).  Drove the Road to Hana (barf...not my favorite...three hours of 5-10 MPH driving on a windy road).  Swam in the Seven Pools (FUN!).  Visited the Grand Wailea (beautiful hotel).  And attended a gorgeous wedding in at Poipu Beach in Makena.  Congratulations to Mike and Vanessa!  May you have a lifetime of happiness!!

We left knowing all the things we need to go back and do (didn't get to see the crater...wish we had swapped out Hana for that; Rob wanted to do some ziplining and take some helicopter tours).  Here are a few photos of our adventures.  The entire set can be found on my flickr account:
