Sunrise and sunset

Today we woke up at 3 am, worst waking up of my life, especially since we are sick AF. But we really wanted to see the sunrise on top of the Haleakala, everybody told us we have to do it while we are staying in Maui. So we really push our body to do it, about 2 hours drive in the complete dark, without coffee, was really really tough. Once up there, a lot of people were waiting for the sunrise, we climbed up to the mountain and waited minutes, it was super cold (50 F), we wore 3 sweaters, legging and towels on top of us and still were freezing. When the sun started going up, it was magical I can’t really describe, it’s something you should see. Unfortunately, this morning was kind of cloudy so we didn’t see what we expected, but at least we saw something, plus we are very proud of ourselves to do it! As you can guess we spend the entire afternoon sleeping, trying to recover a little bit …

Snorkeling in Maui

For our second day in Maui, we decided to try some snorkeling, we went to the Molokini island with the company Pacific Whale Foundation which is a really great crew. The snorkelling was very fun and we saw a lot of fishes, but no turtles… And lucky us on the way back we saw about 10 dolphins, it was really magical!! After this exhausting morning we decided to spend our afternoon relaxing by the pool. My friend and I started to cough and sneeze, it doesn’t sound good so we took some medicines and waited for the sickness to go away … Tonight we decided to kick out our butts and to go out for dinner, we stayed close by our place in Lahaina at Pacific’o. We ordered these very yummy cocktails, trying to beat the sickness with alcohol ahaha My friend took a coconut fish and I had a seafood risotto very, very good, we ate in front of the ocean with a beautiful sunset view. Pour notre deuxième jour à Maui on a …

Woke up in Hawaii

Hi guys!! Guess where I woke up this morning !? Yasssss in Maui, that’s my dream since I was a little girl, I can’t be happier!! Early in the morning we had a very good brunch at Sunrise cafe. After that our first activity was the black sand beach, which is at the complete opposite of our hotel (2h30 drive in small roads). Was not easy to go there, especially because I am still exhausted from the beginning of my trip but also because I needed to be super careful during the entire drive, the driveway was really tight!! The beach was one of the most incredible I have seen in my life, the sand and the rocks were very perfect black with the blue water it’s just amazing. We spent our afternoon there before moving to another wonderful beach, the red sand one. It was supposed to be hard to find, but actually not at all, you just have to write ‘’ Red sand beach’’ in your GPS, you will find a field on …
