This isn't a joke thread. This a thought I've been pondering for sometime but it's very hard to discuss pros and cons with anyone because I don't want to let my friends/family know that's what I'm up to.

Don't get me wrong, I love where I live right now, but I've had a lot of personal and living arrangement issues recently and it's all becoming very hard to afford a comfortable life.

So what do you guys think? Would this be a dumb move? I'm still very young and haven't chosen a career path. I just really feel like getting away and living a different life for a while.

How is moving going to change your current stresses? Aren't the odds higher things could get worse with that type of move?

I did the same thing. Had a chance to move to Hawaii, and put a few thousand miles between me and my exwife. It was definitely the right move for me.

Hawaii has a lot going for it, especially if you are young. Good nightlife and incredible weather. And it has a variety of cultures to experience. But its very expensive, especially if you live on Oahu. Everything has to be brought in by boat. And Oahu/Honolulu has a lot of people living on a small island so in addition to being expensive, its very crowded and the traffic can be pretty bad. But that is where most of the jobs are.

But then I spent Christmas day on the beach grilling steaks, with women in bikinis, so it does have some benefits. :)

I think that is a great idea!
....you can start by selling your laptop, PC, and smart phone

I'm familiar with islands and I would feel uncomfortable going to a non English speaking country.

While this could be true, I would work a less stressful job, and just be able to live a more care free life.

I'm not trying to get some beach front property and become a golfer, I'm just gonna live an extremely simple life. Not a hobo or anything but I would definitely be roughing it the first few months.

While you're young, go for it. i think you're on west coast? Otherwise I'd say one of the FL keys would be less expensive...

If I sold everything I owned, I'd have enough money to maybe live a couple of months in hawaii before returning penniless.
