Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

This past March, Isaac and I spent nine days in Maui, Hawaii. Thanks to our Honeyfund Honeymoon Registry (the best thing EVER), we were able to splurge and have the time of our lives in Hawaii. Our first morning in Maui, we went to the hotel concierge and told her to book us an amazing weeks worth of activities. That she did.

We did a lot of fun things, but our favorite was the helicopter ride over Maui and Molokai. This is where they filmed parts of Jurassic Park, so you can only imagine how beautiful and epic it was. It all felt surreal, and actually made Isaac and I a bit emotional at times. Classical music played through our headsets as we dropped into lush canyons never touched by humans and flew up the side of a 3,000 foot waterfall. We got to see whales and dolphins breach and play from above, something straight out of my wildest dreams! It was the experience of a lifetime and I will never forget it.

If you ever find yourself in Hawaii, do a helicopter tour. Even if it means eating Ramen noodles from your hotel room for the week, DO a helicopter tour!

    GOD

    I have not seen a vacation photo so damn cool!!!!!

    *scrolls up to look at it again*

    • CRAZY right?! I think we saw about 15 different whales diving from above that day. It felt like such a surreal and spiritual experience. I want to go back and do it again! I would do that helicopter ride every day if I could! Our pilot was so relaxed and happy, it seemed. He used to fly search and rescue helicopters for the coast guard so I’m sure he LOVES his new job. A little bit less stress 🙂
