Aloha Maui: Thirty Hours and Fifty-Plus Dishes

I love to travel, and I love it even more when someone else does the planning. For our Aloha Maui trip, Melissa and Meredith did all the planning, and all I had to do was show up at the airport.
It was a whirlwind 30 hours on Maui with Melissa, Meredith, Sean, and Yumi, during which time we ate over 50+ dishes!

We flew over to Maui on Southwest Airlines, and after getting our car at Aloha Kia, we headed to Stillwell's for breakfast.  Meredith recommended the breakfast sandwiches, which were so good!

Meredith had to go to a meeting, so after dropping her off, the rest of us went to do some shopping at Maui Specialty Chocolates and Whole Foods Market.  

Sean sure gets into shenanigans!  I felt as if I laughed non-stopped during the entire trip because of him!

The only stop I requested was at Maui Cookie Lab.

I tried the Chocolate Chunk cookie - so delish!

We then went to lunch at The Mill House, where Dania met up with us, and we got to try a bunch of Chef Taylor Ponte's dishes.

We then checked in at the Fairmont Kea Lani, one of my favorite resorts anywhere!

After a short rest, I went down to the villa where Sean, Melissa, Yumi, and Meredith were staying in.  Luckily, Meredith encouraged me to eat some pineapple to help digest all the food we ate at The Mill House.  I think it worked, because at Lineage, I was able to eat even more!

Chef Sheldon Simeon and Chef Robert Ramshur fed us well, and we left with a case of SLAB Chili Pepper Water.

The next morning, we woke up early to walk along the Wailea Coastal Walk.  We then had a lovely breakfast at Kea Lani Restaurant.

Our last meal before leaving Maui was at Kō Restaurant at the Fairmont Kea Lani, where Chef Tylun Pang told us the inspiration behind a few of the dishes.

On the way back to the airport, we made a return stop at Stillwell's, because Chef Sheldon said the Chow Fun is a must-try.

It was such a fun trip, with so much food, and so much laughs!  I can't wait to do it again!
