About Peter Kay

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings. I worked from nearly zero and today Hawaii has given me the greatest gifts in the world in all aspects: spiritually, financially, romantically (married since early ‘90s w/ 2 children), and most important, peace. My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

What about Hawaii’s severe weather?

Miss Staci from Alaska asked: "Could you do a few videos on talking about the tropical storms, any flooding, landslides, heavy rains, the wetness of Hawaii and any tsunamis/hurricane storms and the seasons?

How to ruin your Hawaii visit with sunburn

When I first came to Hawaii, I went surfing without sunscreen on my backside and the result was 2nd degree burns on the backs of my legs and then 2 days in the hotel room, unable to walk.  You can almost always identify visitors by their burned red skin. For many,  Hawaii is the first
