road to Hana {part 1}

Hiking to our first waterfall of the day. So glad no one broke an ankle!

The road to Hana is the tiniest road ever in Maui. It is full of tight curves and the road is so narrow at times (many times) that only one car can fit. Scary! But I was so weary to do this road trip because of how many people get car sick... I get motion sick pretty easily but being pregnant? I had no idea how my body would react. And I knew I couldn't take any motion sickness meds.... so I almost backed out!
Luckily for me, I have the best blog friends and you guys convinced me to do this trip! I'm so grateful :) It was a long day, but we saw so many amazing sights. The coastline, waterfalls, and the luscious rain forest. My pictures don't even do it justice. I can't wait to share the rest of my pictures!
