truly is a heart- pumping adventure that’ll leave you breathless with anticipation for what lays around the next turn.

along the way, it’s best to take things nice and slow.

• Don’t be in a hurry, or you’ll miss the panoramic beauty that distracts and delights from both sides of the road. • Don’t expect a splashy town once arriving in sleepy Hāna.
