By Megan Shute|Published October 18, 2017
With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
The Hawaiian Islands are as close to paradise as you can get without leaving the good old United States of America — but that doesn’t mean everything about living in Hawaii is perfect 100 percent of the time. When you forget about the gorgeous beaches, phenomenal weather and stunning panoramic views for a minute, you’re left thinking about the few aspects of island life that can be… frustrating.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m absolutely head over heels in love with Hawaii, but even those who live in paradise deserve to complain every once in a while, right? Here are 17 of the most common complaints.
Bottom line? Just because we live in a tropical island setting that so many tourists visit each year, doesn’t mean we get to live like we’re on a constant, never-ending vacation. We are not immune from the stresses and problems of modern-day life just because we live in “paradise.” So, let us complain on occasion. What other complaints do you have about life in Hawaii?
