In a place where the most dangerous of situations is forgetting to put on sunscreen and spotting an old man in a speedo, Maui is relatively safe. There are supposedly zero snakes on this island and apparently few shark attacks (I had a bizarre fascination with both). As it turned out, we found ourselves in more trouble with the most unlikely of sources.

We vacation in places like Maui to escape the hustle and bustle, or possibly the mundaneness, of everyday life. Maui provides remedies for both: serenity and adventure. Granted, Maui is a great place to sit on the beach and go for a leisurely swim in the crystal blue waters. But, for those who are interested in a noteworthy quest, these hikes are surely to satisfy the adventurer’s soul.
