As my second to last semester in college comes to a close, I’ve started to reminisce a bit about the memories and experiences I’ve had. By far, the most impactful part of my time in college was when I studied abroad in Lausanne, Switzerland for my sophomore year. So I’ll be retelling the story of my time abroad in Switzerland.
I’ve done my fair share of traveling – I mean, I studied abroad in Switzerland for eight months. I’ve seen people of many cultures, both inside and outside of their home region. However, there is always one group that stands out more than all others: my fellow Americans. So here are ten ways to spot an American abroad.

Over the past several months, there has been a poke (pronounced poh-kay) craze sweeping across the country. Poke is a traditional Hawaiian dish, typically made with ahi (not “ahi tuna”, friends – that just means “tuna tuna”), soy sauce (locals call it “shoyu”), seaweed, and other seasonings. So odds are, if you haven’t had poke in Hawaii, you’ve had some weird version of poke with avocado or hot Cheeto crumbs (yes, I’ve seen poke with both of these). To help you out in your search for some authentic poke, here are four places to get the best poke on Oahu, Hawaii. Continue reading “Four Places to Get the Best Poke on Oahu, Hawaii”
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.
