Maui is a photographer’s paradise. With the island’s vast array of stunning and sometimes otherworldly landscapes, it’s easy to find yourself experiencing Maui though the lens of a camera (or in my case, an iPhone screen). Although you’ll want to take a lot of photos, and you should, remember to also put your camera down every once and awhile and just sit back, relax and take mental pictures.
Since I can’t share my mental pictures with you, however, I’ve compiled all of my Maui Instagram photos here for easy viewing — including a few new shots I never posted.
“Packed for Hawaii, New York and Switzerland in one carry on and one backpack. Did it in 10 minutes, we’ll see how this goes. As long as I have my passport, computer, camera and hard drives I should be good. Be back in 18 days.”
“Kicking off Hawaii in style. Fist class and a mimosa. Don’t mind if I do.”
“Aloha! Welcome to the iconic serenity pool at @fsmaui. It’s complete with a swim up bar and underwater music…that’s my kind of pool.”
“Aloha and good morning from today’s office, a pool side cabana at @fsmaui. Using the super fast WiFi to get some work done, but I swear I’ll leave my computer in my room for a least an hour while I’m here! Side note, I have a problem sitting still and just doing nothing…luckily the Four Seasons Maui is a good place to start practicing. Ps. I check out my twitter feed (@trevormorrow) for another pic of the pool! And those are my @eyefly_com Sunset Blvd sunglasses featured here.”
“Left at 2:30am this morning and 15 hours later of non-stop exploring Maui’s cloudy and cool Upcountry (wearing jeans and a coat), talking with locals and shooting a little video, I’ve finally arrived back to the @fsmaui. Such a peaceful place to come home too. It’s my mission tomorrow to lay by the pool and go to the beach (and wear board shorts and tank tank top haha).”
“Today I took my first helicopter ride and I don’t know if it’ll ever be topped. I went with @bluehawaiianhelicopters here on #Maui and it was unreal! When you make it to Maui, its something you have to do! I’ll post another pic or two tomorrow…and maybe a little video.”
“Another pic from my helicopter tour with @bluehawaiianhelicopters. Cruising along the rainy coast of Molokai and the tallest sea cliffs in the world! #maui”
“How many should I buy?”
“Winding down on #Maui and I finally made it to the beach! Catching up on some reading with a few issues of @condenasttraveler, including the Top 100 Awards. @fourseasons dominates the list of the top 20 resorts in Hawaii holding the top 4 spots…one of which, @fsmaui, is right behind me.”
“One more from Maui. Got out and took this shot while driving back down from the Haleakala summit after sunrise. Driving up to the summit for sunrise it is pitch dark, so driving back down after the sun has risen and the island is illuminated is incredible.”
“Shaka brah! This morning at 10,000 feet elevation to watch the sunrise at the summit of Haleakala National Park in #Maui. Will post a pic of the sunrise soon.”
“2 minutes after sunrise this morning at Haleakala National Park. I’ll have some tips on how to best view it coming to you this month in video and article form.#maui” — Here is that video and article!
While in #Maui last week I took advantage of @fsmaui‘s complimentary snorkel gear and swam out to their “house reef” right off Wailea Beach. The highlight: a sea turtle glided right by me! Check it out in this #15secondtravelshow on @instagram.
NEW PHOTOS (a few more I never posted on Instagram)
I spent my whole first full day in Maui’s Upcountry, the higher elevation part of the island comprised of pastures, winding roads, organic farms and incredible views of the ocean and beaches. It’s truly another side of Maui that you should definitely check out.
Grandma’s Coffee House in Maui’s Upcountry serves delicious pasties and sandwiches (they also do breakfast and dinner). One of the employees said their customers are comprised of 60% locals and 40% tourists. For Maui, were LOTS of businesses (especially restaurants) are frequented by tourists, that’s a pretty good percentage of locals to tourists.
Driving though Maui’s Upcountry I came along rolling pastures filled with hundreds and hundreds of cows. They have the best view in the world.
