Maui, USA

This great surprise arrived from Glenn from his trip to Hawaii back in March

from the back of the card:  The Lāhainā - Kaanapali & Pacific Railroad train on its way to the centre of Kaanapali, Maui. And this is also known as the Sugar Cane Train, which is a 6-mile, 40-minute trip in open-air coaches pulled by vintage steam locomotives. Well, when one gets bored of the beaches, this is surely a thing to do..though I think that 40 minutes is just too little....

Lāhainā is said to be the largest census-designated place, in West Maui, and the gateway to the famous Kaanapali and Kapalua beach resorts. And it was interesting to read that until permanently moving to Honolulu, Lahaina was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii.

the famous Grand Teton :)

thank you so much Glenn! And I feel even more honoured to have this card coz of the circumstances of its sending :)
