I am an enterprising Kiwi who sailed from New Zealand to Hawaii over 30 years ago and never left (still have the accent!) As luck would have it I married a local girl and now I am here for good.
I've traveled to most continents with the exception of Africa and Asia and sailed a large portion of the South Pacific since my youth. My wife and I usually travel on the no plan plan, with no particular schedule in mind, enjoying getting lost and finding new places. You'll find we are both very easy going , low key and full of "local" knowledge. I myself do enjoy a good conversation and meeting new people.
Hawaii's geography is quite diverse, so while you're here check it out. Of course if you are an ocean going person, Hawaii is the perfect destination spot for you. Our beaches are clean and beautiful with free access to all. Hawaii mountains, rain forests and trails are majestic, take your breath away. (p.s. Hawaii 5-0 and other movies etc are filmed in our neighborhood)
Our home is centrally located in a rain forest in the Nuuanu area of Honolulu. Its a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki yet still close enough to venture out.
