Maui Travel Guide 2019: Oxfordist Edition

Okay, we’re not even going to address the fact that I haven’t been updating the blog in almost over a year. Please forgive me! Recently journeyed back from my week long trip in Maui and have lots of things to share. I would 100% count this vacation as one for the books! Being that this was my second time there, I had a shorter time getting acclimated to the Aloha state of mind. Got lots of messages on Instagram Stories from my poll on whether I should share all eateries I visited AS WELL AS even more requests to share where I went outside of eating (beaches, activities, shopping, etc). Well, the wait is over! Here’s my mini travel guide for how I spent my 7 days in Maui. Let me know if you’ve been to any of the places, or where you recommend I go if/when I ever head back to the island! I’d love to hear in the comments! Aloha!
