Another guest post from our friends over at 365 Kona!

Why IS the Big Island of Hawaii a terrible place to live? From feeling sorry for departing visitors, to finally understanding where our food comes from and the fact that fashion is no longer that important…we cover a few "tongue in cheek" experiences about living in Hawaii.

Thearticle I wrote for Huffington Post reached the FRONT PAGE back in 2017 after publishing it there from my original 365Kona 2013 post: This article consistently was one of my most popular posts for years and so I wanted to bring it to life with a video!

Yes, I took my share of heat locally for calling the Big Island, "terrible" but please know, it started out as more of a writing challenge!

If you DO decide to visit the island and/or move here, please take the "Pono Pledge"
It is a pledge to keep our island vibrant, respected, and revered so that people may enjoy it and future generations may as well!
