Molokai in 11 Snaps: An Instagram Session.
Vacant postcard beaches–Check. Rich Hawaiian culture–Check. Sea cliffs the size of skyscrapers and mules to navigate them with–Check and Check.
Molokai was everything Beth and I had hoped it would be and more. I had an idea what to expect. But it wasn’t until we actually stepped out onto the asphalt from the Cessna and into the island’s atmosphere that things began to click.
It’s hard to imagine that Molokai is part of the same archipelago as Oahu, the Big Island and, even, Maui. I can say with brutal honesty that is one of the most unique places in the world, and a lot of that has to do with the spirit that’s transferred between the island and its people.
We were fortunate to have four days on Molokai. We drove to the farthest ends of Hawaii’s fifth largest island and met a lot of special people in between. So, when it was time for our flight out, Beth and I both felt we were leaving a little piece of us behind.
We’ve got a lot of fantastic stories and photographs that we’re going to be sharing in the coming weeks and months from our trip to Molokai, but I thought I’d lead with a collection of our favorite Instagram photos from our trip. So if a picture is truly worth a 1,000 words, then here are 11,000 about an American paradise found.
Which snapshot is your favorite?
