MAUI, 2014

The second leg of my trip brought me to Maui where I met up with my brother for a well-deserved vacation.  It was his first time on Maui so I was excited to show him around.  We arrived in the evening and headed up-country to Keokea where we were staying with my good friends Noah and Sara and their little dude Kallai.  We spent the week exploring the island, eating copious amounts of fruit from around the property and relaxing the most.  Although it was a week off of work, Noah and I planned a Venison dinner and invited a bunch of people over for a feast.  We harvested heaps of veggies from Noah's Lower Kula Farm and supplemented with a few items from my favourite grocery store, Mana Foods.  The dinner was a huge hit and it was great to meet so many new people.  All in all it was another unreal trip to the hawaiian islands and I look forward to going back soon! Thank you to Noah, Sarah, and Kallai for the kind hospitality!!
