Maui island - Part 2
The second part of exploring Maui island. As you already have seen from the first part - this island considered to be one of the most beautiful islands in Hawaii. So lets see it a little bit more.
The island itself isn't deserted. It has awesome roads, stores, restaurants and all you might need.
But overall it's really green and nature friendly. Looks more like a Thailand.
Real heaven on earth.
I wonder if anyone has ever climbed there.
There are no large towns but a lot of small ones. Really cute in fact.
Wooden hand chairs.
Real American style.
Lahaina - Maui, Hawaii.
Many cruise liners come here everyday to spend a day in paradise.
Hawaii waters are home to many sea animals including Humpback whales.
There's also a Bubba Gump restaurant, just like in a Forest Gump movie. We'll visit it later on.
I just love these American cities.
As I already mentioned - Ford Mustangs are really popular here.
Surf naked. :)
Mmm - need to find this place. It should be somewhere near by.
Found an indian guy.
If a man speaks on a deserted island, and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?
Live Aloha Hawaii.
Unfortunately even in such paradise there are lots of homeless. But I bet they feel much more comfortable then the ones in colder countries.
I bet you can't catch such fish in our country.
As we drove further we just stopped by one of many hotels. The entrance is free so you can easily enjoy the territory.
People are just chilling, making barbecue and relaxing.
I guess I could work the same way easily.
This could easily be a wallpaper. Maybe without people though.
We even found a statue of Buda or whatever he is called.
And as evening came we returned to have some shrimps in a Bubba Gump restaurant.
Menu is made in a shape of a table tennis racket.
You leave a "run forest run" sign while you eat and switch it to "Stop forest stop" when you are done.
View from our table. Really impressive.
Here is the overview of the terrace.
Really like the interior of the place.
The next day we decided to drive up the volcano which meant driving through the clouds. I think we've already done this in Tenerife.
Only to find out that it's been closed due to government issues. Fail!
These markets are awesome. You can get the coolest and most fresh fruits there.
So we bought some papayas and
..hit some wild beaches.
The waves as always looked quite large and mighty.
I think I could enjoy this view the whole day.
Time to get back to our town Paia. It's quite small but also cute.
On our way back we stopped to watch some evening surfers and the sunset.
We also found a friend of ours. A sea lion - just lying on the beach, chilling.
Even though it is almost sunset the waters are full of surfers.
But we were told it's quite dangerous. Once a week one of the surfers gets killed by hitting the rocks or drowning.
The next day we went to see real bamboo forests. It was a tricky place to find. Thankfully locals could help us.
It wasn't that easy to go through the jungles especially in the rain. But it was quite warm so the rain was really chilling.
Founds some waterfalls on our way as well.
Humidity level is huge but the nature is so beautiful. Just staggering.
After humid jungles we needed some rest so we headed straight to the beach.
And I went snorkeling.
Real Hawaii style beach. Even with the head statue like on Easter island.
As the evening came we were told that the fair is in town. And it's like one of the biggest event of the year on the island so we had to see it. And we were taken there by a real American school bus. How cool is that?
The fair looked quite amazing. I didn't know an island had so many people. :)
Lots of different attractions.
Not like we really wanted something but we couldn't leave without a prize so I decided to throw some balls :)
And here is my prize. Yey! :)
So this is the end of our trip to Maui. A week has passed so we had to return to Honolulu. Now leaving Maui island behind.
Beautiful Pacific ocean with Hawaii islands. Here is Moloka'i island.
And finally we are back to Oahu island. You can see Honolulu below us.
We still had some days to spend in Honolulu before flying back to Los Angeles, Washington, London and finally Riga. Have to admit Hawaii islands are one of the most beautiful places I've ever been or seen.
Time to land. Huge plains below us.
Will definitely return here someday.comments powered by Disqus
