On the 2nd of July 2014 we flew from Queensland to Hawaii and landed at Honolulu Airport to start the next chapter in our lives with our golden retriever Marley by our side (actually, he joined us the next day after being released from the airport). We then headed from Honolulu to Kahului, landing on Maui for the first time in our lives and navigating our way up the Hana Highway to our accommodation which we’d arranged in the weeks prior.
To visit a place we’d never seen in person didn’t phase us at the time, it seemed a natural and necessary progression in our lives and whether we would succeed or go home to Australia in six months with some stories to tell was yet to be seen.
One year later we feel we enjoy each day here to the fullest, devoting mornings to walks on the beach with our boy and afternoons with our clients at sunset. Below are 12 of our favorite images from the 12 months we spent here on Maui, and the stories behind them!
