    • Visiting Kona for Ironman Oct 2017

      Kailua-Kona Jan 8, 2017 at 1:39 AM

      We live in Perth W.Australia and plan to visit Kona for the Ironman in October (as spectator only) and plan to be there for 2-3 weeks. We regularly spectate at 70.3s and full Ironmans in Australia/Asia, great to watch.

      Can anyone please suggest/recommend good location to stay (and possible condos/hotels/airB&B) within easy reach of start and transitions.

      Many thanks. Penny

      Hotel, activities, surfing recommendations?

      Maui Jan 2, 2017 at 4:13 PM

      Hi everyone,

      It's been a while since I've written. Well it's time for another trip. I'm hoping to go to Maui to experience Hawaii for the first time with my husband

      I don't know much about Hawaii. Just know they have great coffee and a great place to learn to surf.

      Does anyone know of a great hotel near the waters with a nice beach that's also near activities like surfing, snorkelling, hiking, kayaking? We like the adventure type of vacations.

      Hopefully to get some ideas and not break the bank.

      Thanks.

      Life on Kauai

      by dnwitte Online Now Jan 22, 2014 at 3:20 PM

      So, there's a very rare job opening in my profession in a place called Kapa'a. I know nothing about life in a small town in Hawai'i. Anybody care to fill me in on the culture and quality of life in Kapa'a?
      I just reached the end of my tether with winter in New England.

      Thanks in advance.

If you can compare them. We like to swim by day, drive and lie around on a (shaded?) beach. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Horsebackriding would be cool to. Authentic/good restaurants for breakfast lunch and dinner? What's the best grocery store for the best fish and meats? Any other suggestions? Thank you so much, Dave
