Dont come out here without a job and dont sell your things just yet.

You can rent a room for $600 a month and get by. But the job part is going to be the hardest part. Either have one when you come out here or have plenty of money to live here a month without one.

Moved out here a year ago had the job already and 3 days paid by the company hotel. While it is somewhat expensive it isnt bad. houisng is expensive, milk eggs and gas are expensive and eating out is expensive. The rest isnt bad price wise.

Good part of Hawaii is the weather bad parts is to many people,rent and if you want to go anywhere is cost money. Plus the traffic worse traffic jams in the US.

So if you just want a change I wouldnt suggest it, there is cheaper places to live.

Edit

You live in Socal? Tickets will cost you $500. Not as bad as living on the east coast and coming out here.


Thanks for the advice bro.

Yeah I'm in SoCal so it wouldn't be too bad, but like you said I would have to find a steady paying job and I'm still young so that could be harder than I thought. Definitely don't know if I could find something to pay 600 a month...

A lot of people have to work 2 jobs to afford to live out here. Im lucky as I only need the one. But they also pick up a 2nd just because it can get boring after awhile. Also to meet new people.

I've thought about doing something like this after my undergrad years.

My grandfather takes his boat down from Connecticut to the Bahamas every year alone, and he says he meets all kinds of young people down there with the same ideas that you're showing right now.

They just needed to get away, even if just for some time, so they saved up some money, bought a boat that they could live on, and went out there. Doesn't necessarily mean you need to live on a boat, but that general idea sounds awesome.

No worries, maybe just work a job at a marina or a bar or something on some small island that isn't crowded with tourists.

Good luck though son, I'd like to hear how that goes if you follow through.

Yeah I dont want to discourage you from trying it. If it is something you want to do defiantly do it. Just have a plan in place if you want to get back to SoCal.

i have been having the itch to move as well. just extremely bored on so many levels. sometimes you can change your attitude by changing your latittude.

but if i do move. its either near the ocean or New Mexico.

Really can't understand why somebody would want to live at a vacation spot

fug hawaii dude, spend a tiny bit extra on tickets and go to southeast asia and spend five bucks a night on hostels hanging out with backpackers from all over the world. you'll have the time of your life and spend absurdly little money doing it.

fwiw i went through something similar (i dont know what your exact circumstances are) and ended up selling all my poo and moving to australia because of a bunch of poo going on in my life externally and internally and it was the best decision i ever made. hawaii, southeast asia, whereever you go, just go. you can always move back home later, but this may be the only time you ever get to do something like this. fuging do it
