Aloha,

My name is Jenny, and my family is moving to Hawaii in a 2 months. Im looking for Hawaiian friends on here, As I will no nobody i could use all the help i can get. I have 3 children. 1 biological dd (6) sd (14) and ss (12)

My DH is a diesel mechanic who specializes on marine mechanics and his company is moving to the big island in June.

Im looking for information about the culture, locals and anything else you fine people can provide.And possibly to make a few friends. 

Mahalo

It's like ten dollars for a carton of oce cream haha. I would love to live there if all my family weren't here, I have a friend on oahu I visit once a year. I love the culture though, barefoot in the supermarket, babies run naked on the beach, dogs run with out leashes, farmers selling fruit on the side of the road, huge farmers markets with all the mamas in their big sun hats baby wearing. It's all just so laid back and causal, and there is a huge emphasis on health too

Aloha!

I visited the Big Island for a few days about 10 years ago and loved it. It is my favorite of the islands that I've visited. The culture is more relaxed than I see here on the mainland. Enjoy the fresh fruits, the plate lunches, the shave ice, the dancing and museums. There is a custom of making signs by placing small white stones on the black lava rocks, so you'll see a lot of that.

I hope your move goes smoothly and that you enjoy your new home.
