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.
As most people know, California was in a severe drought from 2013-2017. Even now, when the state is supposedly no longer extremely deprived of water, it is quite difficult to find water-based natural landmarks, like rivers, creeks, and waterfalls, that actually have a decent amount of water flowing through them. I actually hiked a different waterfall a few weeks ago, and it only had a trickle of water. But I was determined to find a nearby waterfall hike to satisfy by obsession (as seen by this post and this one and this one). So when I found a SoCal waterfall with water, I was hyped.
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.

Remember that amazing beach in Southern California I wrote about a few weeks ago – Pirates’ Cove? Well, I went back for another visit and found out that there was a Pirates’ Cove Hike! The path leads to amazing views of the sunset and an overlook above a bunch of sea lions!! And, to make it even better, it’s not too strenuous.
Therefore, to continue on with my trend of outing all of my secret adventure sites – like I did with Likeke Falls and Ko Olina’s Secret Lagoon, here are some directions to get to this sea lion overlook.
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.
