Aloha Amyp! If ever you get a chance, do go to Hawaii.
For me, I just love to get a couple of sand chairs and a foam cooler, fill it with some local goodies, and we just spend an entire day at the beach, any beach (but we like Kailua and Ko'olina)!
As for living there, well, when a half gallon of milk is anywhere from $4-$7 and a dozen eggs are pushing $4. And EVERYTHING is taxed! Even food. It's tough on families, we both had to work to make it, and we don't have children. Alot of our friends with kids had to work two jobs each to be able to make ends meet.
Again though, don't get me wrong, I LOVE HAWAII!!
I am of Hawaiian decent, and if we could, believe you me, we'd back there in a flash my friend!!
