Maui on my Mind

I would be lying if I said I wasn't a lucky girl.  Maui is a place that I get to visit pretty frequently, I try to go once a year.  I'm lucky because I have a lot of friends on this expensive island which means a free place to stay and no need for a rental car. I recently made a quick 3-day trip over Memorial Day Weekend to visit a friend and meet her 1-year-old son.  It had actually been about 2 years since my last visit to Maui so it was long overdue.  Our days were filled with beach time, walks along the road in Haiku and getting to know the little sumo-wrestler Makani. This trip left me yearning for a simpler life on a quiet island away from the hustle and bustle and overcrowding of Southern California...some day.

Montezuma Falls & Ziplining Scrapped

I finished the Costa Rica scrapbook! Our favorite part of our trip to Costa Rica was the two days we trekked over the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula from Santa Teresa to Montezuma.  Once for the waterfall hike and another time for ziplining, both are essentially in the same place. I think next time we're in Costa Rica we'll possibly stay in Montezuma just for the outdoor adventure that is abundant there.
