Hawaii Travel Vlog 2021 (Maui)

I’ve always wanted to make travel vlogs, ever since I started YouTube. This is my first one, and I’m so excited to share it with you.

Some background info on this trip – in 2020 we had a trip planned for Montreal, Canada, and another trip planned to backpack in Europe. Traveling is one of our hobbies, so we wanted to do something big to celebrate Dorv graduating from medical school. Well, everything got canceled (as we all know). We had booked these tickets well in advance too, and were afraid we’d have to cancel, but thankfully things worked out! Maui is a beautiful island, the people are so incredibly kind, and I can’t wait to visit Hawaii in the future to see the other islands!

Apologies for the sound – Maui is so windy the little wind muff on the mic was basically useless haha.

  1. Hi wonderful video!!! What type of camera did I use for underwater? And what beach did u all go to snorkel? Thank u

  2. love love love his time you shared. Maui is so magically. I love that place! Excited yo see some paintings from your trip, Thanks

  3. I’m going to Maui soon with family. We want to go snorkeling. Where were the best snorkeling locations you guys went?

  4. That looked like an awesome trip. I cant wait for the Canadian travel to be a little more easier to do. I'd love to get to Ireland in the next couple of years. 😍πŸ₯°

  5. We honeymooned in Maui 20 years ago this month!! Beautiful Island!!
    We're not much into swimming, we did a lot of sightseeing and museums and tours and stuff.
    Agree about the seaweed, yucky!!
    Good job on knowing your Bible verses!!!!
    Can't wait to see what paintings come from this trip!!

  6. This was so sweet and relaxing! My favorite part was when you drove on top of that volcano and you were over the clouds πŸ˜‹πŸ˜πŸ˜†

  7. Dorv: "I'm not a cow." Blinks repeatedly This made me laugh so much I have no idea why! I loved this vlog! It was so nice to see you spend some time with Dorv and show us what you got up to while in Maui! Thank you for sharing Mira! Looked like you two had an amazing time.

  8. Did you try the apple bannas or icecream bananas? If you didn't next time you go to hawaii I recommend Kauai and trying them. They will prob be in a farmers market. πŸ™‚

  9. Thank you very much for sharing these fun moments and amazing trip with us! I loved all the sea footage! 😍
    Hearing the water sound makes me feel happy and calm!😊
    I hope you spend another fun vacation in the future too! 🏝

  10. Thank you so much for sharing! You guys are such a awesome couple. The vlogs are fantastic. Much love from South Africa

  11. Wow, thank you for sharing. Very cool footage of sea turtles! Rejuvenating experience for you two. Especially for an artist πŸ™‚ Love the ukulele!
    BTW, we have monsteras and bamboo growing in our yard here in FL. Hope all the sand is removed from the crevices by now, LOL.

  12. What a fun surprise to wake up to this morning! Reminds me of the three years my family spent in Florida…. But less swampy and gross. πŸ˜‚ The ocean is our favorite though, and my tiny humans miss it so much.

    Also I love Dorv's instant regret at saying that one line. I about died. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ™ˆ

  13. Awww you guys are so cute together. That looks like a lot of fun. I went to Maui on my honeymoon. We went snorkeling but took a raft out to some coral reef. Didn't see any sea turtles, but lots of tropical fish. Wish we had GoPro's back then. We used some single use underwater cameras. I got so sunburned. I'll probably never get on another plane again with the way things are. While on Maui we also drove the road to Hana, saw the black sand beaches, it was a really bumpy road. We stayed close to Lahaina (sp?) lots of art shops there back in the 90's. The bamboo groves made cool sounds when a breeze came through. Like living wind chimes.
    We went on a Helicopter ride that showed us waterfalls from the air that was really cool. And it took us near a volcano crater I think. You could also ride horses in there I think. They gave/sold us a VHS tape of the trip.
    My dad was on the big island at the same time, so after awhile we spent a day hopping islands and got another hotel in Honolulu. And met up with my dad and he showed us around that island some. I didn't like the traffic, high rise buildings and streetwalkers though. There was a restaurant with an entire wall was a giant aquarium. And we went to the Polynesian cultural center, oh and on Maui we went to a luau. Hopefully we did most of the stuff because it was a once in a lifetime thing for me. The one thing we should have done was visit the USS Arizona I regret not doing that. I think there was a waterfall called 7 falls on Maui and we went there.

    I've been to Mazatlan too, (we went Marlin fishing and caught a Sailfish with the sword nose and the giant Fin) and Germany (for Oktoberfest) and drove the Autobahn to Austria to visit some of the castles. There's Plenty of stuff in the US I've never seen though, like the Grand Canyon so I think I'm OK. Wish I could have gone to Paris would love to see the city and spend a lot of time in the Louvre. I married badly, we went only on 4 vacations in 30 years and I just told you 3 of them. In Germany I wanted a Black Forest Cuckoo clock but the shop was closed. Later I saw one on a home shopping channel so that was good enough for me. Of course the beer steins for oktoberfest. Lots of pictures taken. Thanks for the refresher on the memories. I remember getting off the plane in Hawaii and the smell of the air really hit me. So nice, the air was different.

  14. What a sweet, fun video to watch. Tis a bautiful place, and I love it when you turn the camera on Dorv because his expressions and quick repartee have me laughing out loud. "I'm not a cow!" Seeing the pair of you together makes me smile too, it's easy to see and feel how much you love each other without hearing the words.

  15. Aww~!! That was so cool! My parents actually went the same week you did. They brought me home leis and my daughter a cute grass skirt, top, and shell necklace. Oddly, they also said their B&B had a few stray cats! I hate seaweed too, so we're in good company there. Thanks for sharing your tip with us! I can't wait to see more of those paintings <3 Take care you two!

  16. Omg ! I’m in Maui to Rn and today we went snorkeling and saw a bunch of tropical fish ! Also the turtle is adorable

  17. So adorable! What a majestic place! Sure to bring inspiration to the heart. As a suggestion for a name for your birthday present: Layla, the Ukulele πŸ˜…

  18. Maui is one of the places that I really want to go and this video is amazing! I just wonder as an artist how do you pack your things?? I also do painting and sculpture and I need to bring some of my paintbrushes lol. I'm using this Bento bag from Nomad Lane that has a separate compartment for my laptop and has so many pockets I can put my art materials on.

  19. Absolutely loved this vlog! I hope to oneday go to Hawaii but for now this video really warmed my heart!

  20. I think it is so cool sometimes the things we can do with technology! Like we can take pictures in the water! I think it's pretty cool and I love that you are using it as reference for paintings!

  21. I love your art you are an inspiration to me and my little sister. Thank you! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—
