Aloha! - Hello!

Aloha is a word with many meanings, including hello, goodbye, and love. It can be a noun and a verb. In talking about the Hawaiian islands, many people mention the aloha spirit, meaning people just seem to do things with kindness for others. For us moving here, from so far away, it helps that many people here do live out that aloha and are more than willing to befriend people from the mainland. Maybe it's the weather, or the vistas, but whatever it is, it's nice that people are... well, nice.

It's been about a month and a half since we've moved to Hawai'i. We've been settling into our new place and exploring our neighborhood quite a bit. There are plenty of adventures we'd like to share, but first we wanted to start with how we got here. You can read below about our road trip from Michigan to Hawai'i. And soon, we'll start adding our Hawaiian adventures to the top, like a regular blog.

Look for weekly (hopefully more frequently, but I'd like a realistic goal!) updates with your Hawaiian word of the week. We hope this is a good tool for you to keep up with the Perrys, and we'd love the comments to know how you are doing as well!
