You learn A LOT about people when you travel with them. I am currently on my third deployment for my day job and we’re doing alright. Plus, we have at least two more trips this month planned where we will be sharing a nice Marriott room. I am mature enough to share a room and save costs to stay in the same room with my male coworkers. No big deal. With snow scheduled to fall on Snow-hio tomorrow, I found myself thinking about Maui. I have traveled often with my roommate, Kim. However, that trip to the islands was my first with my #Instafriend. And I am so happy to say it went really well. It helps when they are so easy going. Even when you have to wake up at 1:30 AM to catch a tour.
From our first trip to Southern California before she officially moved in to a 13-day Princess cruise around New Zealand to day trips to wine country, Kim and I are very much used to each other traveling. Maui was no different.
#Instafriend was great. Her outgoing personality fits right into the mix and she’s adventurous and happy all the time. She isn’t afraid to go off and do her own thing as well. Like work. We three also work a lot and this trip to Maui was much needed.
I am happy to report I have officially recruited two friends to join me every year at the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival on Maui. I am happy to have been able to report back on the festival for three years now. Before the main dinner was over, the girls were committed to returning for the same event. I love my job. And I love these ladies. You will be seeing more of them on my blog. Good company, good food = good times.
