The Return of the Mountain Woman...

A travel blog entry by phungster

The tallest mountain in the world - from base to peak - is right here on this island, Mauna Kea. It is twice as tall as Mt. Everest.
It would be an impressive achievement if I can put myself on that mountain. From my experience with Mt. Fuji, I don't think I can head for 13,803 summit today...

But don't think it would stop me …

Feed the Fishes!!!

It is so quiet here. Folks are in bed by 9 PM. It is pitch black by 6:30 PM.

No TV, no GAMES - but there is internet connection. Still jetlagged, I have been waking up at 3 AM Hawaiian time. I can hear the cricket sound, the bird chirping, and the cock crowing... The view from this B&B is stunning. I can see the coast from this side …

The Big Kahuna

Hawai'i, the biggest island of the Hawaiian archipelago. It is big to some, but only takes 6 to 7 hours to circumnavigate this island. I would like to put this to the test.
Arriving view from the plane, the landing strip for Kailua-Kona (which is on the East side of this island) looks like something from outer space. It seems the airport …

Oups Kona, not Kaua'i?!

A travel blog entry by tavini

Anyway, we left the Island of Oahu and flew to the Big Island, by mistake! What happened was that Tavi tried to book our flights and our rental car in only 5 minutes of internet surfing (it was really expensive 1$/minute) he clicked on Kona (a city on the Big Island) as the destination when he was looking for Kaua'i (a smaller and older island). He …

The Most Psychedelic Experience Imaginable

... what he meant. The water was warm, calm, and crystal clear. And the fish were everywhere! Yellow ones with pointy noses, black and white ones with iridescent stringy fins, schools of blue, and best of all- glowing tie-dye ones that changed color in the scattered sunlight. Not to mention sea anemones, urchins, coral, and moray eels! Nothing was even scared of us, they just went on with their day as we drifted by. The most psychedelic experience I've ever had! We took a lunch break, had ...

    This B&B has a stunning view of the Kealakekua Bay. The host is very welcoming and made me feel at home right away. Nice homemade breakfast every morning with fresh fruits right from the garden on this property. The host is very knowledgeable of this area, which is very helpful.

    When you arrive at Ka'awa Loa Plantation, you will have a hard time pulling yourself from the wonderful back porch. It is wonderful in the morning with their own plantation coffee and breakfast, it is wonderful in the afternoon to sit in a rocker or enjoy the daybed for a nap. It is wonderful in the evening for sunset watching or to sit and visit with other people, (from around the world) It is also great after taking an outdoor shower and a soak in the hottub. Breakfast is huge!... Michael made the best smoothie I had on the island.. We came back in the afternoon to find brownies one day and pineapple upside down cake another. They had the most comfortable bed we ever slept in. We had the room with the shared shower but we chose to use the outside shower as did most of the other guests. Greg and Michael are the picture of hospitality. Thanks for the great memories.
