Road To Hana Stops – 17 Beautiful Scenes With Video

The world-famous road to Hana is one of the must-do experiences when visiting Maui. It can be overwhelming deciding what to see, so we’ver rounded up the Road to Hana stops that we did on Maui’s epic coastal drive.

The Road to Hana, aka The Hana Highway, takes you from the sleepy surf town of Paia to the peaceful town of Hana.

It is one of the island’s most popular day trips, so it can get very busy fast.

We recommend leaving early and driving directly to Haleakala National Park which is about 30 minutes past Hana.

Once you have seen what you want there and around Hana, you can then spend the day slowly making your way back to Paia.

Traffic on the road to Hana from Paia to Hana is plugged and stopped later in the day seeing the sights in reverse order, let you enjoy the viewpoints and wat...

The Beautiful German Town Of Bacharach

After two nights exploring Nurburgring and all the many adrenaline-fuelled fun to be had here, it was finally time to leave and head off on the next leg of our road trip – the bit filled with castles, vineyards and the cutest villages and towns.

Our first stop (well, more of a pit-stop really) was the Loreley Plateau, a viewpoint on our way where you essential get multiple views of the Rhine valley around you, but even before we got there, we were greeted by many a beautiful castle as we made our way through.

Where to Stay in San Francisco – A Guide To The Best Areas

San Francisco was once known as the epicenter of the counterculture movement. In the 1960s and 70s, it was the place where you would find artists, beatniks, and those who practiced an alternative lifestyle.

Today, San Francisco is more tech than it is artsy but it still revolves around a culture that values tolerance and acceptance of diversity.

One of the things that come along with that change is that the city has become quite expensive which can make choosing where to stay in San Francisco difficult.

There are so many different neighborhoods, some safe and some not, so selecting the best place to stay is really important if you want to take advantage of all of the cool things to do in the city.

We asked local San Francisco expert Mimi McFadden to create a guide on where to stay in San ...
