People move back to the mainland for a few key reasons: financial, family, or cultural. This article deals with the cultural change you need to be prepared for if you’re going to live here. Whether these are big issues or little issues is up to you but you need to know what they are regardless.
About the Author: 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.
