My travels on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

The island of Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands at over 720 square miles and is the 17th-largest island in the United States. Maui is part of the State of Hawaii and is the largest of Maui County's four islands, which include Moloka'i, Lāna'i, and unpopulated Kaho'olawe. In 2010, Maui had a population of 144,444, third-highest of the Hawaiian Islands, behind that of O'ahu and Hawai'i Island. Kahului is the largest city on the island with a population of 26,337 as of 2010 and is the commercial and financial hub of the island. Other significant places include Kihei, Lahaina, Makawao, Pukalani, Paia, Kula, Haiku and Hana. And I've been to all of them, plus more!

All about my first trip to Hawaii!

In 2009, my daughter, Karen, became a flight attendant for a small regional airline. Small as it was, though, it gave her flight benefits—not only for her, but for her parents, as well! That meant I would, finally, be able to see some of the places I'd longed to see…like Hawaii!

Jason and I take a trip to Maui, Hawaii.

When I was still in the hospital with necrotizing fasciitis, it became evident that my illness was taking its toll on Jason. Before I even came home, it was clear that somehow my illness had affected him. He was unable to sleep during the night and unable to stay awake during the day. He told me he was having trouble focusing on his tasks at work and couldn't hold a coherent conversation when he was with me. Clearly, something had to be done.

Keith and I take a trip to Maui, Hawaii.

Maui is the most romantic place I've ever been to. Not that I've had a lot of chance to be romantic there, as the first trip I made, I made solo; the second was with my boyfriend of the time (and foreshadowed the end of our relationship); the third was for my daughter's wedding. This time is different. It's for my dear husband Keith's birthday, and is doubling as our delayed honeymoon. And I have every intention of being romantic on it!

Moving To Maui

We're moving to Maui at the end of January. Here's where I'm collecting my moving notes and tips.

Anyone who loves the time he's spent on Maui as much as I have, has surely wondered: what would it take to move there, to live there full time? How complicated would it be if that move were to be to unimproved land, land on which one intended to live "off the grid"?
