Is the Capilano Suspension Bridge Worth a Visit?

Is the Capilano Suspension Bridge Worth a Visit?

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?”

Four Places to Get the Best Poke on Oahu, Hawaii

Best Poke on Oahu Paina Cafe

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.

I Found a SoCal Waterfall WITH WATER!

A SoCal Waterfall with Water

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.

Top 5 Souvenirs to Buy in Hawaii

Souvenirs to Buy in Hawaii

Thousands and thousands of tourists come to Hawaii every year. However, I always see them going off with the tackiest of souvenirs, like gaudy Hawaiian print shirts, plastic flower leis, or dancing hula girl figures. Instead, I’ve compiled a list of the top five souvenirs to buy in Hawaii (and, just to prove that these are not tacky, I happened to have all of these in my house at the time I wrote this post – so they are good enough for a local to have too).

16 Things to Add Your Bucket List Right Now

Bucket List

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”

The Secret Tips and Tricks to Disneyland’s Toy Story Midway Mania

Toy Story Midway Mania Disneyland Disney
A couple of weeks ago, my family came to visit, so we decided to go to Disneyland’s California Adventure Park together.  By far our favorite ride is Toy Story Midway Mania, but we could never figure out how people could get those high scores of 500,000+ points!  Our strategy: ride the ride and play the games as many times as we could.
