A comment from 2002 from someone in the SF Bay Area:
I tried a month in Hawai'i, but didn't feel much better and spent half the trip down with a viral infection, probably from flying.
I'm not sure that Hawai'i was necessarily bad for me. I might not have given it enough time. The reason I went, actually, was that I had gone for a week a few years earlier and had felt much better, so I was trying to recreate that experience.
I made one major move during a period of remission, from nyc to san francisco -- oops, that was maybe a mistake. I relapsed in six months. . . SF is damp, windy, moldy, but it's beautiful and probably easier to be sick in than nyc.
I went to Mexico once -- Oxaca City and the coast -- and, actually I felt remarkably good during the whole trip (that was six years ago), but it helped enormously to let my friends make all the decisions and arrangements (they were healthy folks); on my own, it would be different, I think.
