Yeah, it's kinda hard to explain it all. Hawaii is a State, but it's more like another country than any other state. An amazing blend of ethnicities come together to make Hawaiian Style. Living here is way different than vacationing here. Oahu is much different from the rest of the state.
The weather app is so true. It is a waste of icon space on the homescreen. I have mine set to alert for high surf advisories.
When I show my drivers license on the mainland they call other people over to look. It always gets a comment.
