We didn't have many opportunities to travel in 2017 and the trips we did take were mostly weekend trips to our favorite local places. We were lucky enough, however, to spend a week in Maui in November. It was our first trip to Maui and we spent much of the week relaxing, eating, and recuperating from a hectic year. Our main excursion during our trip was to Haleakala National Park. We spent the better part of a day there exploring, hiking, and enjoying the otherworldly views. If you ever find yourself in Maui, I highly recommend setting aside some time to visit the park and to take in the spectacular landscapes.
