Unique Maui Hike

Trees on Maui Hike

Travel for us is all about getting off the beaten path, literally. If you find yourself on Maui and looking for a hike, venture upcountry toward the slopes of Haleakala Volcano and find the Boundary Trail, near Polipoli State Park. It’s an adventure you won’t forget.

Visit Cappadocia Turkey

Cappadocia Turkey Fairy Chimneys

Visit Cappadocia, Turkey. It’s a magical, historical, friendly region of Turkey whose fairy chimneys will capture your imagination. My daughters loved the idea that fairies lived inside. It was easier for them to believe the houses were for fairies instead of Turkish families. Wonderful hikes and tours abound.

Maui Hiking: The Waihee Valley

Waihee Valley Waterfall Hike

The Waihee Valley trail in Maui is an unexpected and fun way to hike through the rain forest and to waterfalls, take a plunge into a pool and cross swinging bridges. Great for all ages, the hike was a highlight of our family vacation to Hawaii.
