About Peter Kay

I’ve lived Hawaii since the mid ‘80s when I moved here at the age of 21. I arrived site-unseen in Honolulu with zero contacts and about $5k in savings.

My goal with this site is to share the magic of this Land of Aloha and help others who are on a similar quest.

You asked: Would Oahu be the ideal location for me?

Our local girl Aina wrote up 3 of the

Don’t be fooled: Honolulu is awesome!

If you've never been to Hawaii there's a good chance you've been led to believe that Honolulu is either too "touristy" or crowded or expensive.  Well, while it is touristy, crowded, and expensive, so are the other islands.  Don't get me wrong, each island has remote areas with wide open spaces that are neither touristy nor

What’s the time difference between you and Hawaii – well it depends…

Whatever your time zone, in the winter months you're one hour closer to Hawaii and that's because we don't follow daylight savings time.  Why is that?  Our local girl Aina spells it out and it's pretty interesting. Read: "Does Hawaii have Daylight Savings Time?" now
