Short answer: heck yes. In recent years, Amazon and their Prime service have eased the pain but make no mistake; it’s still a pain yet part of the life of living in Hawaii. Aina gives you a local’s view of what it’s like in dealing with Hawaii’s shipping costs.
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.
