Hawaii (Part IV: Road to Hana)

On one of the days in Maui, Markel and I drove the Road to Hana.

Let me just say…it’s pretty fucking overrated.  I don’t regret going (b/c it was pretty), But i don’t think it’s something i will ever do again.  Laying out by the pool and drinking mai tais vs. driving for 6 hours?  uhhh mai tais please.

But Alas…it was gorgeous and something I will always remember.

This is Black Sand Beach.  Markel and I swam in it and I have to say…that was the coolest thing we did on the trip.

7 sacred pools

hiking to the pools

Markel climbed the rocks and ended up behind the waterfall.  The pictures came out pretty cool.

lots of waterfalls and stops along the way, where Markel climbed EVERYTHING and crawled into EVERYTHING.  I sat along the edge, in shade and just watched.  LOL

Vegas Envy and Withdrawals

Over the holidays, everyone and their moms took a trip to Vegas.  Whether it was to gamble, dance, drink, or see a show…they tweeted, instagramed and facebooked.  I was so jelly!!  Luckily for me, I have 2 vegas trips coming up in March and April (one for my friend’s Bach and one for meeeee).  Here are some fun memories and pictures from my last vegas extraveganzaaaa~~ (original post here)

Can’t wait to go back!!
