How to enjoy Maui when you’re stuck at homeWritten by Charles on April 7, 2020 in Blog.
Since most of the planet is currently in self-isolation, we’ve decided to do something a little different this month for the blog.
Instead of encouraging you to visit the Hawaiian Islands, we’re going to help you enjoy it from the comfort of wherever you’re sheltering in place.
Enjoy some of our best content from almost 6 years of the Sunny Maui Vacations blog.
Without further ado, here we go!
Is Maui truly the best? We say yes.
Ever wonder where the expression Maui nō ka ‘oi — “Maui is the best” — comes from? “Some marketing genius” is not a bad guess, but it’s actually somewhere much more interesting.
Maui nō ka ‘oi dates back to ancient Hawaiian chants called mele ho‘o‘ike‘ike, which often invoked some bragging as to whose island is the best. This tradition carried on to the 1800s with songwriters and poets who — finding the expression rather catchy (and true) — incorporated Maui nō ka ‘oi into their songs and poems.
Today, Maui is still the best in our eyes. Read more about it here: Here’s Why Maui Truly is “Nō Ka ‘Oi”

Okay, I’ll admit something: I quit drinking coffee about 6 months ago. Not because I hated it — it was because I loved it so much I was drinking way too much.
