And if you are sick of the cold and snowy weather that plagues the northern portion of the Lower 48, you will forget all of that once you move to Maui, where we have plenty of sunshine! You might be no stranger to relocating, but Hawaii is considered a BIG move. Not only that, but Hawaiians tend to be a little more minimal with their lifestyle and prefer being outside rather than inside surrounded by “things”. When you are getting ready to make the move to Maui, you might need to pick and choose which of your possessions you want to bring along. But what about your current vehicle?

Best Podcasts to Listen to While Driving

When mainlanders picture Hawaii, they imagine pristine beaches and lush vegetation. But we know what living on the Hawaiian islands is really like.
