Hawaii - Maui



Unfortunately the only direct flight from Shanghai to Hawaii is with China Eastern. But as we try to avoid flying with this airline, we chose Korean Airlines. We had a 2 hour layover in Seoul. The flight was more exhausting than I thought and I was totally done when we arrived in Honolulu. However, we then had to fly further with Hawaiian Airlines to Maui. When we finally arrived we picked up our rental car and drove to our B&B. The name was "Windward Garden" - it was amazing, the only disadvantage, it is a bit located out of center of Maui - but far away from mass tourism. I would recommend it in any case, it's like paradise there! The hosts are very nice and the master suite was beautiful. It was the first time I've stayed in a B&B and I was pleasantly surprised. Not to mention the breakfast which was fresh prepared by the hosts and daily changed. It was soo delicious! 

We stayed 5 days on Maui. Apart from swimming and sunbathing at various beaches we  also made a snorkel excursion. The highlight was snorkeling with turtles, otherwise I was rather disappointed by the snorkeling tour. I expected much more fish and coral in the ocean. Nevertheless, Maui is an absolutely beautiful island. The sunsets and the diversity of the nature are gorgeous there!
