Maui Discovered

March 6, 2006 – Twelve years ago Conde Nast Traveller magazine began polling its readers annually to select the "Best Island in the World." Maui has won the Readers' Choice every year, out-scoring other vacation islands such as Bali, Barbados, Majorca, the Maldives, Sicily, and the Greek isles. Last year Maui also out-polled every other vacation destination in the world, beating San Francisco (Top US City), Florence (Top European City), Bangkok (Top Asian City) and Sydney (Top Pacific Rim City). It's no wonder — I've traveled all over the world and I've never been anywhere more lushly scenic and welcoming than Maui.

We were in Hawaii for 12 days. The first half of our trip was spent in Honolulu on business, the second half was in Maui. The entire time we never swam or walked on a beach. As luck would have it, every day was cloudy with intermittent rain showers. The weather was no good for getting a tan but it was perfect for shooting botanicals, which is the main reason we transferred to Maui. We vacationed at a wonderful cottage on the north shore, near Heulo, right in the middle of the tropical jungle. The Blue Bamboo Hideaway (not specifically shown on the web site) was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental. We had complete privacy, incredible views, a nice kitchen, a wonderfully comfy bed, a well-appointed bathroom (whirlpool tub), an open-air garden shower, and a large screened porch. The porch is where we spent most of our evenings. Outside, there were three lily ponds full of colorful koi, which I loved feeding.

Here are a few of my favorite photographs from Maui:
