    Hawaii TR

    Dupree and I decided to meet in Hawaii for 10 days...

    For me....Hawaii is the closest direct flight to beautiful blue water beaches....about 5 hours direct.

    We were 4 days in Big Island and 5 days in Maui.
    I been to Big Island before with Ao and friends and it does nothing for me.
    But my friend has a uber luxury villa on the beach so staying at his place is incredible but the area is so boring


    So this is really a Maui TR
    I LOVED Maui!!! I can't believe I've been this close for 12 years and never been.
    The beaches are stunning, there is stunning scenery and a really fun and active downtown area along with other funky, quirky towns.
    The best thing is the vibe....all the tourists and bartenders/staff are up for a chat.

    We stayed at Kapalua Ridge Villas. About 15min drive from downtown.
    In Hawaii they call these huge developments Resorts but they are made up of 4-5 gated condos/houses, and 7-8 restaurants
    We basically split the holiday nights between going out downtown and staying within the "resort"

    I will definitely be back. Already looking for 5 days in early September

    Nice one. How did you spend most daylight hours? Much to do and see around or a case of chilling by the pool all day?

    Accomodation is expensive
    We are in a very nice condo complex and it was 300usd for a 1bdrm
    Dupes is in the bedroom....I'm on sofa

    https://www.vrbo.com/510780

    Going out hasn't been that expensive
    I've been spending about 70-80usd per night
    Most places have great happy hours where beers are 2-3usd and appetizers are 5usd

    There is a ton to do in regards to water sports, hikes, driving around the island, really cool funky towns

    Pics are the complex we stayed in and our beach 5min walk from condo
    The complex had about 6-7 restaurants that were good with a good vibe so some nights we never left the complex

    Some more pics...
    We had 8 days of fantastic weather....about 28C every day and sunny and low 20's high teens at night.
    The last 2 days was very rainy but almost welcomed..

    We were out and about every day doing activities that the rain allowed us to be lazy. We took some drives.

    As I said....I really loved Maui and I could see me coming here for 4-5 day getaways now

    It's real laid back....everyone is in shorts at the bars and probably the friendliest bartenders in most of the venues that I have met in a long time

    That's actually in the North Shore and I said the rolling hills looked like Ireland
    That picture was taken yesterday when it was raining for 24 hours so the water not that blue
    But it definitely has much different scenery on north shore

    The road turns into one lane with big cliff so Dupree made me turn around
    Wimp! 555

    Not bad, Hawaii seems almost as nice as Perth 55. Reminds me a bit of the southern most coast of Western Australia.

    The only way you'd convince me to do it is if you told me the bike is equipped with a stubby holder and an ashtray.

    Even though I've never met either of you in real life you strike me as being polar opposites in real life. Like completely different energy levels. You're probably doing his head in 555.

    Ha
    You hit the nail on the head!

    We had a blast and a lot of laughs.....tons of laughs.
    We never run out of things to talk about

    But he is much more conservative than I thought
    He's an accountant so he is cautious by nature

    And he sort of just shakes his head at how !much I drink

    But we have a funny back and forth going all the time

    You and I are probably some of the biggest drinkers on this board. Hopefully I'll catch up with you at some point in Thailand. It'd be like dumb and dumber.

    That's true. But I'm always willing to back it up... or at least give it a good crack!

    I'd either be proven right or get shitfaced trying. There's virtually no downside.
