Hawaii Travel Diary – Day 2: Aloha Maui

Hawaii Travel Diary – Day 2: Aloha Maui!

After some hours of sleep (not many cause I had a huge jat lag of 11 hours), it’s breakfast time. What’s a best place for it than the the Kapalua Golf Club?


The world tournament will start in a few days, so there was a lot of preparations going on. The temperature was perfect (especially if you consider that I’m coming from a relatively cold winter in Italy), but the weather was a little cloudy. Actually, the weather here is crazy, cause it changes very fast.

Lovely interiors and tasteful breakfast!

After a huge breakfast (the picture above was just the start), I went to do a little exploration at Honolua. I will probably be back to take more serious shots, but sometimes it’s just good (and useful) to enjoy the view and explore.
The colors were just amazing, and I had the chance to see a big difference with the use of the polarizer, so cool!

Honolua

You see the big green on the right? That’s where I went.
I never saw such a wild image of the nature, so much that it really left me speachless. HUGE trees, with HUGE leaves, with a lot of humidity and moist. Thank God my camera is tropicalized 🙂

The Jungle

While walking inside I saw a lot of wild chickens and roasters, how cool is that?

Now’s the time to explore downtown a bit. They call it town, but to me it’s more like a street with some shops (you’re sooo italian, they’d say :D).
That view gave me a really nice feeling of relax; I can really feel that the people here is different. I don’t think they even know the meaning of the word “stress“.

Lahaina Town

Christmas signs in Lahaina

I don’t know what this is, but it’s cool 🙂

After wandering around and taking some “street photography” shots (which I’ll eventually post), it’s time to realx a bit and enjoy some shave ice. I don’t think I ever tasted something that sweet. Seriously.

Shave Ice

While I was relaxing in the shade (cause it was really hot) I met a new friend named Biscuit 🙂

Selfie time

It was just late afternoon, but I was tired already because I was still jet lagged pretty bad.
But before going away, let me take a selfie 😀
