Trip report 1/17- 1/22

This forum was a tremendous resource for our recent trip- thank you! Highlights: Zip line by Adventure Tours in Kapalua; road to Hana tour by Hawaiian Eyes (took Bonnie and brought ginger ale and crackers- I was fine)- we were in a comfortable vehicle and made frequest stops- very informative tour; blow hole at mile 38.5 (that tip was very helpful- saw others hiking over the ridge from the first parking area) then lunch at the Ritz at Kapalua; Feast at Lele; watching big wave surfing and then dinner at Mamma's House.

You hit the highlights. Question: Would you like to return to Maui or other Hawaiian islands? How did this trip compare with other vacations?

In 2009, we visited Oahu and the Big Island (the Big Island was the highlight of that trip); for this vacation, we split our time between Maui and Lanai. The experience at the Four Seasons Manele Bay was so wonderful that it's hard not to consider Lanai the favorite part of our trip. Yet Maui was fun and beautiful, too (we stayed in the Ka'anapali section- maybe next time we should try the Kapalua area- it looked less congested).

And we still "have to" visit Kauai :)
