I Was actually thinking of places to retire. Then thought of places to try out maybe temporarily relocate. Southern Europe definitely on my list. I already visited earlier this year. One month in Spain and Portugal. Visa etc are an issue over there though for long term stays.
Check my blog on that trip.
So for now within US I thought Hawaii would be a cool place too. As it is hot always not cool actually literally :) I was thinking of moving my neels-nirvana yoga-music-meditation holistic wellness startup to Hawaii. I also want to try and earn money while I initially move there utilizing my tech experience.So I talked to some tech recruiters. I decided to make a trip to Hawaii in Nov'18. This was my 3rd trip to Hawaii. First trip was in 2008 (I think) to Maui. Second trip was in 2010 (I think again) to Oahu/Honolulu.
I bought a one-way ticket to Honolulu and with no specific plan other than a plan to also visit the Big Island.
Different areas I visited and their pics are below.
