Flying, Hawaii

Big City Life

One month ago I wrote about my new house and garden. One could think that 21 days are a short time which doesn’t mean that quite some things can change. Four days after my post I got asked if I wanted to move to our flight school in Honolulu. Since that was my plan to do at some point anyways I said: “Yes, shure! When do I start?”, “You start next Monday” was the answer. One week, that was all I got and I was stoked to go over there. Of course I felt a little sad about my lovely place in which I didn’t even live for one month but the need for a new adventure was bigger. My move to Honolulu I obviously did by a Cessna 172, good thing to have only a bicycle which fits perfectly in the baggage compartment.


Five days later I was sitting in my new office and couldn’t believe what just happened. I was living in the office for about 2 weeks while I was looking for a place to stay. My original plan to buy a boat and live on it didn’t work out since it is really hard to get a proper slip for it. By hard I mean the 1.5 year waiting list or an application form which seems to be more paperwork than paying taxes. After the boat on which I already test slept got sold I gave up on that project and looked for a room. I found one in town for a pretty good price and am living now 5min from the beach in a 2 room apartment with Max. Max is the first american I know who switches off all lights and electrical devices to save power. That’s a good thing! Beside that I’m having the best times over here, get to climb, surf, hike and all the good things. I could write a long list of why it is better to live and work over here but that won’t help anyone and thereby I just keep it simple: It’s incredible!
