    I really didn’t feel overwhelmed at all. I welcomed the change of scenery and the completely new heritage of people. It was great living in such a large city that had so much to offer instead of being cooped up on an island in the middle of the Pacific. Although I love my Maui home, it is wonderful to get out of the small community and into a huge one to grasp a completely different way of life and a new culture. Instead of feeling overwhelmed I was excited and eager to embrace my new life abroad.
