Just after the New Year I traveled with Sincerely to Maui on a workation—sort of a working holiday/retreat. It was surreal to spend what was then only my third week of the new job, not to mention my first time, in Hawaii. By the end, the trip proved to be an invaluable bonding experience, and jumpstarted my acclimation to the team.
Given the three hour time zone difference between California and Hawaii, I found myself waking up unnaturally early, so I took those opportunities to go out for a walk while the sun rose. Here are a few photos from those outings.
One afternoon, we took a break from the working part of the workation for a hike up into the West Maui Mountains. Our neighborhood had been sugar cane plantations only 15 years before, so we hiked up an old stone culvert that had once been used to collect water for irrigating the crops.
