At first, I was a little hesitant to visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver, Canada. I mean, it had a hefty price-tag of $42 for an adult ticket – albeit $42 Canadian dollars so at least the conversion rate was a bit in my favor. But still, that was a lot of money to walk across a bridge, right? But with some prodding from other friends, we decided to do it, and I’m so glad we did. So is the Capilano Suspension Bridge worth a visit? The answer is a resounding yes, and here are eight reasons why. Continue reading “Is the Capilano Suspension Bridge Worth a Visit?”
This past week, I, along with a couple of friends, went up to Vancouver, Canada, and it was absolutely amazing! I hadn’t heard a lot about Vancouver before going – like what is there to see? What is there to do? But after spending a week discovering the city, we found four ways that Vancouver is underrated.

I’ve realized that I’ve made quite a few references to my experience of walking across a country on this blog (like here and here), but I’ve never told the story. So today’s the day it’s going today happen. Today’s the day I’m going to tell my story of walking across the country of Liechtenstein.
It was April 2017. The snow in central Europe was pretty much fully-melted. We were officially into spring – so it was time. It was time to frolic across the country of Liechtenstein.

This weekend, a few friends and I flew off to Seattle, Washington to make use of the long weekend. I have to say, we had quite the adventure. So to go beyond the typical Pike Place Market and Seattle Space Needle, here are some of my favorite things to do in Seattle.

I’m not really one for New Year’s resolutions. I don’t think that making a list one night of ALL of the things I want to change or accomplish in life will actually make me do them. Plus, many times, my goals are WAY to lofty for me to even see a clear path to achieving them – like establishing myself as a travel writer – let alone for me to do in a year. Nevertheless, I’ve made a list of travel-themed New Year’s resolutions for you to add to your list. These are all ideas that I think have added to my travelling experiences in the past, so I thought I’d share them with you.

I think the hardest dilemma of a travel writer is to tell or not to tell. Do I tell my readers about all of the cool things that I’ve found and all the amazing adventures I’ve went on? Or do I keep some for myself? For those who grew up with these amazing places? For those who have enough of an adventurous spirit to go off and find them on their own?

For the handful of you who have been following this blog for a while, you know that, last year, I studied abroad in Switzerland for eight months. It’s been eight months since I left the Geneva airport for the last time, and I’ve been pretty nostalgic these past few days (all the Swiss Instagram accounts I follow are probably fueling this nostalgia with their winter wonderland-like pictures of the Alps and the cute Swiss towns). So to try to cure my nostalgia, here are a few things I miss about Switzerland.

I am not the kind of person to have a bucket list. The idea of having a list of things to do and needing to complete them all isn’t my thing – it’s basically another to-do list, and I’m not about that. I do have an adventure list, which is similar in that it is also a list of cool things to do; however, I do not feel the need to complete them all. But that won’t stop me from recommending 16 things to add to the bucket lists that you inevitably have. Continue reading “16 Things to Add Your Bucket List Right Now”
When people think about visiting California, they think about hitting up places like Los Angeles or San Francisco. If they’re going to be a little off the beaten path, maybe they’ll head over to San Diego or Malibu. But there are so many more little hidden gems in California – like Santa Barbara.
This weekend, I spent an entire day in Santa Barbara. Usually I’d just pass it by on a drive from SoCal to The Bay. Maybe I’d make a stop to check out the pier and grab some food, but I’d never dedicated time to spend there. But, this weekend, I found out that there is so much to do there! Being from Hawaii, there are four things that we do when we explore: eat food, go on hikes, chill at the beach, and check out the views. Santa Barbara had all of these, so I was all about it.

I’ve been missing my hiking days back home just a little bit, so I’ve decided to write this blog post about one of my favorite waterfall hikes back home on Oahu: Likeke Falls. Continue reading “Likeke Falls: One of Oahu’s Secret Waterfall Hikes”
