We moved to Hawaii.

Han and I were homeless, jobless, and missing each other way too much. So naturally, we found some Hawaii-based jobs and booked it out to the island of Oahu. The best part about living on this pricey, tropical island? We found a place to stay at no charge. We booked our flights and were reunited in no time.

Like I mentioned above, we have a free stay. This happened due to a family friend of Hannah’s, who conveniently planned a trip out to Missouri for two weeks, the same day we were flying into Hawaii. We truly do not know if we would have had accommodation if this relative did not connect. There was a lot of Airbnb drama, with poor communication, state rule changes, and cancelations. Needless to say we had not yet signed an apartment lease. We both thought it would be best to scope out the land first, before deciding on a place.

If you ever make your way to this island, there are some important pieces of info to know about how to take care of your belongings in this climate. Due to the rural location of our house, we are at the foot of the Jurassic park mountains and just feet away from the ocean.
