I was going to type the old familiar thread, "I'm vacationing in hawaii, what should I do while I'm there" then I thought, I bet they get this all the time, and I have all of the guide books to help me. We never get threads about people vacationing in Minnesota, and I don't think we have vacation guide books either....
So, i thought, a "where are you from " thread would be appropriate
Have you lived in Hawaii your whole life, or did you move to paradise from elsewhere ??
I'm originally from Southern California (born and raised) but moved to Maui 20 years ago. My husband lived here in the early 80's and we honeymooned here in 1988. We decided then if we ever had the chance we'd move here permanently. So we did! Wouldn't change our choice, either.
Recent transplant to Honolulu - moved from all over courtesy of the Navy, first time stationed here. I still call Pennsylvania home.
Will hopefully only be stationed here for 2 years and then we'll move on. Paradise takes on a whole new meaning when you have a rat problem in your house that the maintenance team is dragging their feet on fixing. But the training weather is nice!
Love it! Thanks.. One day my wife and I ever have the money, we just might move too. Kauai is our honeymoon spot, and I visited Hawaii a couple times as a teenager (My mom was a travel agent, so we got deals). looking forward to bringing my kids at the end of this month!
