as i write this early monday morning nobody is stirring in the house. outside is diferrent. roosters, birds, an occassional cow mow. it hits me we didnt do a lot of traditional tourity things. yes we went to the beach but what else. we kind of did it our own way and not the costco package way.
cheryl found us a great a great funky b&b full if charm and vibe. we were able to lounge in the house and gardens vs just a room. we lived more as a local instead of tourists including eating at home not at restaurants. we went to see real island history and got a real authentic maui experience. it was interesting.
we are so glad we didnt choose a resort and just sit there in its comfort zone. we got out to a lot if the island yet managed to hide out in local haiku. it certainly was a different experience and felt more like an expliration.
no road to hana (car sickness issues), no pineapple tour, no high priced resort luau, no zip line, no hike to the volcano at 4am to see the sunrise. we're plenty fine without doing those. we had an amazing experience anyway; our way. not missing them having experienced a more rural green floral experience in haiku.
but its about time to say goobye for now. one last fruit breakfast at the b&b and then of to vaccum and gas the car before begrudgingly turning it in and taking the free shuttle ride of shame to the airport.
shame the we are leaving.....
