Travel Tuesday: Hawaii, part 1

Welcome to a new segment of the Blush Paperie blog, all about honeymoon, travel and deals. This feature is written by one of my best girlfriends, Jessica, a travel agent at a Virtuoso Travel agency in Northern Virginia, McCabe World Travel.
I am constantly asking Jessica about her recent trips and about good travel deals and it dawned on me that it would be fun to share all this with you all. Because Jessica's agency has special relationships with hundreds of resorts, hotels, cruise lines and tour operators throughout the world she can often provide great benefits like upgrades, free breakfast and other added value amenities.

Now that you "know" Jessica, her first installment will be about her recent trip to Hawaii... (so jealous!)

From Jessica:
Hawaii is a perfect destination for honeymooners, couples and families because it offers so much. You can lounge around all day and relax on the beach or be as active as you want. I, of course, started my vacation with an amazing trip to the spa at the Grand Wailea and had the best massage of my life.

The next day, we chose to make the road trip to Hana. Hana is the last undeveloped piece of Maui and is a tropical paradise with incredible beaches, views, and waterfalls...

While in Maui, we also went to a Luau, snorkeled with turtles and took a sail trip.

This photo is of an unbelievably gorgeous sunset taken right before the Luau at the Marriott...
Right now there is great value in Hawaii and resorts are offering spectacular rates.
If you would like additional information about Hawaii or other honeymoon destinations, I would love to help.
