Well, my holiday is technically over now… However, it was a fabulous holiday and I was able to relax and enjoy time with family, and a kid-free holiday to Hawaii – thank you parents!
Billy and I spent a week on Maui and Lanai. It was absolutely beautiful! We had horrible jet lag, so we were awake by 5am and asleep by 8:30 most nights! That’s okay… I saw gorgeous sunrises and had a lovely run each morning!
First, let me rewind to the flight! We flew 9 hours… Kid-free, in first class and on a flat bed seat. Let’s just say that we relished in the silence! I watched some shows on my iPad, ready 250 pages in my book and took a nap!
We arrived in Honolulu and took a SMALL plane to the Kapalua airport where the hotel shuttle came and picked us up.
You see this swimming pool? I had always dreamed of going back to Hawaii and staying at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua. I even had this same picture (minus me and the people in the pool!) on the fridge for at least 10 years! Talk about a hint!!! Well, it came true and here I am! 🙂
To help celebrate my birthday, they had a bottle of champagne on ice and chocolate covered strawberries waiting complimentary – fabulous! This was a wonderful way to start the holiday off right!
We then took off exploring the grounds – it was beautiful!
We watched the sun for a bit and just decompressed!
We decided to head up to the lobby and just grab something quick…. Something about the 11 hour time difference from London was catching up with me! Plus, we had excellent dinner reservations the next few nights!
This was our view while we enjoyed a cocktail! 🙂
And then… My head hit the pillow at 8:20pm and I was OUT!!!! Until 4am the next morning…. But more on tomorrow… Tomorrow! 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
