A Maui Staycation – Yes, Please!
Last week, in my first post for How to Create a Virtual Vacation Maui Style, I introduced you to the general concept of creating a vacation at home. The Coronavirus has hijacked travel, and we need to have a way to at least pretend to be in a tropical destination. Don’t we?
Creating a path to explore a Maui Staycation was my way of getting past the indisputable travel obstacles we are facing.
Check out the new Guide!
Why not create your own virtual vacation and bring in new tropical staging elements or utilize what you already have?
- Order a colorful orchid lei from your local florist, make a list of beachy items you already have, then add to the list to bring this idea to life!
- Make a playlist of Hawaiian music, which MUST include Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. Nothing sounds more like Maui to me than to hear this song! Do you know it?
- What type of tropical aromas transport me to Maui? The yummy scents of coconut and pineapple, tropical sunscreen mixed with sea spray & salt air all remind me of Maui. Embellish your surroundings with new candles or maybe you already have a favorite candle that you love to burn? Check out Glade Hawaiian Breeze and Lifes’ a Beach
- A luxury vacation often includes a visit to the hotel spa. This type of relaxation is just one more activity we cannot currently enjoy, so let’s pretend we can by ordering a lovely tropical smelling lotion.
Lotion and Candles
My dear friend Kathy gave me this amazing Pure Fiji Coconut Lotion for my birthday last year, and I use it all the time. I call it my vacation lotion! What a perfect addition to this Virtual Vacation Maui Style.
Start the plan
Make a list of what you would like to do to celebrate a virtual vacation in Maui. You will need some lead time on the ordering of the Da Vine Lilikoi Pureé (for the perfect Mai Tai) and Hawaiian Coffee (to go with your Macadamia Nut Pancakes). Decide which (or all) of my list of ideas you will use and make a plan.

I just love the idea of enjoying a vacation without leaving home. Why not include other family members or friends and share this Hawaiian vacation project? How fun would that be?
The Tasty Part
In my next post, I will dive into more details about all of my menu suggestions. You can always move ahead if you would like! You might want to check out the Guide to find all of the ingredients as soon as possible!
