Hanging out in Hawaii

How we spent 6 weeks in the Hawaiian Islands!

sunny 29 °C

OK... so we’ve been slacking with writing the blog, we know! But we were busy having a great time in Hawaii – can you blame us?!

On the island of Maui, with the Pacific Ocean in our backyard, we spent many of our days:

Kayaking
