DH’s boss mentioned the other day that we can go to HI next year if we want. We’d be there at least 2 years. I’m looking for any bees who actually lived there and what are the pros/cons.
I should say that we are currently overseas so we get tax-free income, free housing, and a cost of living allowance. All would be gone if we go to HI. DH’s salary “should” remain the same but could possibly go down a little. We have no debt and a substantial savings from these benefits.
His boss said it might be easier for me to get a job with his company if we go there but it would take at least a year. Also, I know the houses are way smaller so most of our things would have to be put in storage in our home state while we are there. And we’d have to pay out of pocket.
Don’t get me wrong….I hear it’s an amazing place to visit but everyone I know who lived there said “it was nice, but glad to get away.”
