HAWAII…who doesn’t dream of moving to Paradise, right? Well, for many they don’t believe it’s possible, however story after story we prove that’s not the case here at the LUCKY WE LIVE HAWAII Podcast. If you have the passion and determination to make Hawaii Nei your home…there is very little things that can stop…except yourself!

Today we talk with two amazing people…one who has moved here and one that is moving in the near future…We’ll hear both sides of a move to Hawaii…and for those who are NOT American citizens the Story of PAUL THOMPSON from Canada may just hit home to many wanting to move to Hawaii, but are not american citizens. We’ll also be hearing from EILEEN LINTAO…making the big move from the BIG APPLE to the BIG PINEAPPLE…lol.

Paul Thompson is a Canadian I.T. professional who had a dream to live in Hawaii since he was a young boy. Paul and his wife Lisa and daughter made that dream a reality not once but twice. Moving to Hawaii can be challenging enough even if you are an American citizen but as a Canadian it was even more of a challenge. Paul and his family first moved here in 2013 but family reasons took them back to the mainland. After 2 years back on the mainland and the strong desire to live in Hawaii still present, they moved back to Hawaii again in 2016 to continue the adventure.
