About Us

Nojoqui FallsOur interest in waterfalls and waterfall-themed travel grew from experiences we had when my wife, Julie, began taking me to
local waterfalls in the Los Angeles area. It was a means of getting away from the stress of graduate school and our jobs.

Surprising both of us, a wish to see a few modestly-sized waterfalls quickly resulted in an addicting desire to see as many waterfalls as we could together. Soon local trips to places such as the Santa Monica Mountains, Angeles National Forest, and the San Bernardino Mountains became replaced with road trips to the mountains and coasts of Central and Northern California (including the iconic and historic Yosemite National Park, as well as the deserts and canyons of Northern Arizona and Southern Utah.

Angel Falls
However, we didn’t stop there. Our trips expanded to Yellowstone National Park, the Cascades in the Pacific Northwest, and Hawai’i. Yet eventually even these places started to feel "local."

Soon we endeavored to collect waterfall sightings in destinations around the world, including New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Europe (including Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, and Croatia, etc.), South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia (including China, Japan, India, and Thailand), and the South Pacific (e.g. Tahiti and Fiji) – among others.

HaifossFrom our travels, we have learned much about the world and about ourselves as well as how we can preserve and protect our dwindling natural resources. We've "re-discovered" our passion for nature and travel - constantly discovering and learning new things while expanding our horizons as we go.

We've taken to heart the expression that "variety is the spice of life." And what better way to do it than visiting waterfalls that come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and colors?

Indeed, we have lots to say and we're happy to share our experiences and our knowledge through the World of Waterfalls website (read about how we built this website).

Kalambo FallsHopefully, you'll find the content entertaining, informative, inspirational, and enlightening.

We hope to be fortunate enough to continue our waterfalling as a lifelong endeavor while sharing our experiences along the way. If you're a waterfall fan (become a fan) or have experiences to share with us and our readers, feel free to submit your story and spread the word about how waterfalls have enhanced your life in a positive way (as it has for us!).
