Because you all seemed to love A Hawaii Food Bucket List (From a Local), I decided to make a part 2! So here are a few more local foods to try in Hawaii.

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.
While visiting big, booming cities is always great, some of my favorite trips have been when I’ve visited the most random tiny towns, and I’ve decided to share some of them with you. So without further ado, here are 10 tiny bucket list-worthy towns around the world.
Hawaii, as a place of diverse cultures and languages, has developed its own dialect, known as “pidgin”. Before I left Hawaii to go to school on the “mainland” (also known as the continental U.S.), I didn’t realize how often pidgin made its way into our everyday forms of speech. So to help you out, here is a list of 24 local pidgin words you need to know when visiting Hawaii.
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.
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 …
For much of the Western world, Christmas is on December 25th. That is the day everyone tears open Christmas presents, devours delicious meals, and celebrates Jesus’ birth. However, December 25th is not the only Christmas celebrated around the world. As a matter of fact, for many around the world, Christmas is on January 7th.
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.
