Picture Maui

[trip style = luxury + active + beach + sun + food]

Maui: A place where sunsets stop traffic, coffee comes iced and swimsuits outnumber pants.

I've been to the Valley Isle more times than I can count for the aforementioned reasons, once for a three-day weekend when I needed a quick dose of sunshine. 

This time I'm here for most of April, checking out hotels, restaurants and the island's coolest landscapes. I'm meeting up with my fellow Expedia Viewfinders this week to share A LOT of aloha in pictures, on TS and on the Viewfinder. 

So far I've been living aloha all over the islandincluding a three-day trip to Lanai {a 45-min ferry ride from Maui} for a stay at the Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay, and now I'm at the Fairmont Kea Lani.

Check back here for best-of updates over the next few weeks and in the meantime follow the hashtag ‪#‎PictureMaui‬ on Instagram and Twitter for an all-Viewfinder virtual island tour. To find TS photos, search #TSaloha.
