Living in a ski town means winters are the busy/high season. Lots of snow, people, traffic, energy, and powder fever. After a long (and still continuing) winter, we usually try to go somewhere warm in April, for a change of scenery and pace. This time we got lucky since there was a family medicine conference in Maui that provided the exact number of CME credits that Geny needed for the year. So she signed up for it and off we went.
We stayed at the Marriott in Wailea, where the conference was being held. Daily routine involved Aman and I hanging out at either the beach or the pool while Geny was off at the conference. Her afternoons were free, so we’d hang out together, either at the beach or pool, or go for walks along the beachfront path.
The food was great. Our friends Michele and Alex from Pueblo were there for the conference too, and we had some great meals. One of the highlights was dinner at Spago.
Taking advantage of the conference discount, we attended the luau. It was quite the affair, with lots of food, dancing, singing, and entertainment. The fire dancer was definitely the highlight for most of us.
With vacation days limited, we didn’t really stay more than the conference and left pretty much right after.
