18 Years in Maui Today

18 years ago, November 10, 1990, I arrived in Maui to make way for the family to move here from Toronto with $800 cash in my pocket. I was completely a stranger in paradise - no relatives, friends, and not even a hotel reservation so I had to wait at the airport for my lost luggage to come in for more than 4 hours. Stayed at Banana Bungalow Hostel for two nights.The following day I spent $600 to buy this 1978 Subaru Brat which became our “family car” for the next two years. We put in over 70,000 miles on it and eventually gave it away.

This car had a lot of memories of our early beginnings in Maui.
