It’s funny: when I graduated from college I started working for Starbucks which meant early mornings (i.e. waking up at 3am for a shift that started at 5am). Then I was a personal trainer, which meant I could totally sleep in til a whopping 5am every day. WHEE.
Now I have a job that starts at 8am and feel almost spoiled in comparison to the olden days of steaming milk and kicking people’s tails around the gym. And now that I am used to working 8-5, getting up at 3am is kind of a beating.
That being said, if you go to Maui I would highly recommend watching the sun rise at Haleakala (“house of the sun”), a potentially active volcano that summits at 10,023 feet. In our guidebook it’s said that watching the sunrise over clouds is one of the most spiritual things one can witness on the island. And I can confirm that. The following pictures are untouched and absolutely divine (thanks to my wonderful photographer husband!)
