We are taking you to beautiful Hawaii for our second post in our Honeymoon series. Sonja & Filip were married in 2008 and are avid travelers. You can view images of their wedding in 417 Bride.
I’ve always enjoyed the opportunity to travel. Both of my parents love road trips and my dad worked for an airline. My husband always spent his vacation time traveling to Springfield to visit family. Luckily, he was hooked on travel after our first vacation together to Yellowstone National Park. Since then we’ve been all over the country, from Boston to San Diego. Our honeymoon was a great opportunity to go beyond the lower 48. We choose Maui: the weather is amazing and it’s the perfect combination of relaxing and adventurous. I love adventure; Filip appreciates a little down time mixed in. We spent hours on Wailea beach, took our convertible up the Road to Hana, braved the Haleakala volcano, snorkeled with a shark and went surfing for the first time. We found the best restaurants on the island and enjoyed fresh fish, Mai Tai’s, sushi, papaya and pineapple. (Can I go back right now?!)
Vacation with Filip will always be my favorite thing! This year we are looking forward to a trip to Niagara Falls and Maine. I’m very thankful for my husband (and best friend!) who wants to explore the world with me.
Thanks for sharing, Sonja!
