I currently live here, if you have questions, go ahead and ask and I’ll do my best to help.  I’m on Oahu–what island are you moving to?

Moving here in any event is not difficult per se, but it is complex.

Sounds like fun that Hawaii is a prospect! I live on Oahu, and I’m actually moving back to Seattle next moth. It makes me sad to think I’m not going to be able to go to the beach and swim every week. It makes me sad to think I can’t buy liquor at the grocery store for cheap. And, it makes me sad to think of living in gloomy weather for most of the year. Living away from most of my family was hard, but Oahu has been such an amazing experience. Culture shock may happen, but you’ll love some things for sure. It’s fun to be in a place where so many different languages are spoken and there is such a wide variety of perspective. Do you have any questions in particular?

I’m going to be honest.  I live on Oahu, but unlike most Bees I really can’t wait to get off this rock.  I feel so bored and cooped up here, and it’s so expensive to travel anywhere because you have to fly and just to get to the west coast is usually around $500 round trip.  BUT since you asked, there are positives: the weather, if you’re outdoorsy the beach/hiking spots, it’s relatively safe (yes there is some violence, but compared to other big cities, there aren’t any really violent neighborhoods here).  It’s expensive to live here (from groceries to rent to whatever) but it may not be that big of a difference depending where you’re coming from and depending on how much $$ you already make anyway.  It’s green and there’s a lot of fresh air and scenery so that’s a plus.  People say that people here are generally nicer than elsewhere.  I think it depends on where you are on the island but overall, people are nice and will help you if you ask for directions or whatever.  Oh! Directions are easy.  I mean, there are only a couple of freeways so you’ll find your way around pretty quick.  So that’s a plus.  The pace of life out here is pretty relaxed/slow, so that could be a positive or a negative depending what you prefer.

I was actually born and raised on Oahu, and I absolutely do not want to live anywhere else. Unless i have to, cause its getting a little to expensive. =]

I hope everything works out for you!
