Moving to paradise ? Mar 06, 2011
Hawaii is NOT paradise. It can be if you are well of and situated with a good job and place to live. Otherwise its expensive and your options here are limited. The local culture is kind of closed so outsiders, from the mainland, are not always looked upon favorably. The best thing is to have a job before you get here. Then find a cheap place to stay, with a short term lease, just in case. You can always move up when you know where you want to live. Jobs are hard to find, and often pay less than on the mainland. Competition for the few good jobs here is fierce. Many people here with a degree go to the mainland. But they all mostly come back sooner or later. When they have better jobs and more money. Then life can be good. Hawaii is safer and more clean than most mainalnd places. And very beautiful. But islands FAR away from everything. Expect to give up a few things, and that some things don't work as well here. We are in the middle of the Pacific after all. This is half Asia. Be patient but stubborn, but always with a smile. And the Aloha spirit !
