Exciting Plans for 2014!!!

 

So, we thought we would let you in on some of our upcoming travel plans.  We are super excited for 2014 and look forward to heading back to some favourite destinations and checking out some new ones. 

Hawaii Big Island - Sunset

We have two trips planned for this spring and can’t wait for both of them to get here as they will be taking us to sunnier climates and it is drab and dreary here in Vancouver, Canada right now.  Our first big trip will take us back to Maui, Hawaii.  This will be our third time to Maui and we are sure it will not disappoint!  We love the beaches, food, and laid-back lifestyle of the Hawaiians…and the drinks, gotta love the tropical drinks!  We are also positive that we will be in desperate need of the some sun once this crazy winter weather is over.

While we are in Maui, we will be checking out a variety of activities and featuring them on our website.  On a previous trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, we did a helicopter tour of the active volcano, Kilauea.  The views we got from the sky were absolutely breathtaking and ever since we have looked for opportunities to take a helicopter tour again.  We are so excited to be going on the Maui Spectacular tour with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters.  It even includes a stop on the slopes of Haleakala to enjoy the views and some refreshments!  How cool is that!?! 

Other activities we will be doing include ziplining on the Kaanapali course with Skyline Eco-Adventures.  We have done a lot of ziplining around the world and have even done their Haleakala course on a previous visit to Maui.  It was an adrenaline rush and we imagine this newer course will deliver the same jaw dropping views and excitement!

As we will be in Maui during whale watching season, we will be heading out with Paragon Sailing Charters on their Lahaina Champagne Sunset Sail.  We look forward to witnessing the humpback whales play and interact with each other in the warm Hawaiian waters.

Did you know Maui has an aquarium?  We are very interested to check it out and all of the diverse sea life on display.  At the Maui Ocean Centre you can get up close and personal with Hawaiian marine life and you don’t even have to get wet!

Another trip we have planned for the spring is to Orlando, Florida.  We will be visiting all of the Disney World parks as well as Sea World, Universal Studios and Kennedy Space Centre.  This will also be our third time to Orlando but we are very excited to check out some new attractions at the theme parks.  And of course, we will be heading back to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Islands of Adventure.  This can be a hectic part of the park, so we’ve written some of our best tips for visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to make the most of your time.

Summertime plans for us include time in the Okanogan Valley of British Columbia.  We will be lounging by the lake and taking some time to relax.  While we are there we will be doing some wine touring, as this region is famous for its glorious wines.  We have visited wineries in West Kelowna on a previous trip, however, this year we are looking forward to exploring more wineries further south in the Penticton area.

We are hoping to pencil in some other trips that are in the planning stages at the moment but so far 2014 is going to be another exciting travel year for us here at Travels4Couples!

  1. Currently, I only have one trip to be excited for this year. It is a ski weekend to Whistler with 10 other friends. It should be a great time. I am excited not to have planned a trip yet for 2014. I will be scoping out the travel deals and then booking accordingly. It has been awhile since I have done a budget trip!

    • We LOVE Whistler!!! That will be an amazing trip with such a big group of people! A little jealous over here, Angela 😉 Good luck on finding a deal on a trip, it is fun searching for a new exciting destination and when you can score it at a great deal, all the better!

  3. The helicopter tour sounds amazing! I’m sure you’ll get some great pics. When are you heading to Orlando? Our 2014 trip is a road trip from Saskatoon to BC in July. Not sure of where we will stop along the way, but I’m sure Banff will be in there somewhere.

    • We can’t wait for the helicopter tour! We will definitely have camera in hand and be snapping photos like crazy. We will be heading to Orlando in April which we have found a perfect time of year as it is not too hot there and the crowds are also not too bad. We LOVE road trips!!! They are such a good way to see an area. Hope you make it to Banff, it is a beautiful spot! 🙂
