Aloha from beautiful Maui!

Aloha from beautiful Maui, Hawaii!

We’re back home after a wonderful trip to the Hawaiian island of Maui. It really is astonishing how quickly time flies when you’re having fun!

Hopefully you had a chance to read our post about the Maui trip and you were able to follow the adventure on Twitter using the hashtag #seeMaui. In case you didn’t, head over to our facebook page now and check out some of the fun photos we snapped along the way.

We joined a diverse group of travel bloggers and writers on a social media press trip hosted by the Maui Visitors & Convention Bureau. The other bloggers on the trip were Matt from Landlopers.com, Beth and Randy from BeersAndBeans.com, Jason from JasonsTravels.com, La Carmina from La Carmina.com and Alison Brick, a freelance travel writer.

We’ve got lots and lots of stories, photos and video to share with you, so make sure you check back with us over the coming weeks to watch a flying Randy, a volcano bike riding Beth, a sailing Jason, a terrified Matt, a brief encounter with a curious tiger shark and some outstanding aerial views of Molokai and West Maui from a helicopter!

In the meantime, here are a few photos from the trip…
