About The World Of Waterfalls
WHO ARE WE?
My name is Johnny, and I’m the author of the World of Waterfalls. My wife’s name is Julie. Julie and I started this adventure as a duo out of the Greater Los Angeles area, but now we’re a trio thanks to our daughter Tahia who we’ve taken on our travels with us.
Back in 2000, I was in graduate school and working full time. Julie was also working full time. So as we were looking for ways to balance our lives, Julie had this idea about doing local hikes to waterfalls on the weekends in the Southern California area.
After all, we were nature lovers and it just seemed like one of those ideas that made a lot of sense to us. We quickly learned that just engaging in this activity recharged us.
Soon local trips grew to road trips further abroad. Then, road trips grew to overseas trips. Before we knew it, we were seeking out waterfalls around the world, and it had become a lifelong adventure.
When we shared the love with friends and family, we also learned that we were able to spend quality time with each other while out waterfalling.
These days, we’re looking for any excuse to seek out waterfalls as they tend to coincide with the most meaningful moments of our lives.
WHY GO AROUND THE WORLD FOR WATERFALLS?
In addition to waterfalls, Julie had a passion for travel. She always wanted to go places, and in our early days of being together, she managed to get me over my fear of flying to explore places like Cancun, Maui, and Tahiti.
When we realized the benefits of waterfalls, we wanted to combine these passions. We not only got to experience diversity in the people, the food, the environments, the culture, and the languages, but we also got to experience the natural world in these foreign lands. With each of these experiences, we found ourselves learning a lot about the world around us as well as a lot about ourselves.
In fact, many waterfalls forced us to go well off the beaten tourist paths, which allowed us to stumble upon some relatively hidden gems (both waterfalling and non-waterfalling) that engaged us more with the locals while allowing us to see the most beautiful places on earth.
WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?
So far, our waterfall travels have taken us to 38 states in the USA and 46 countries across the world spanning all continents except Antarctica. To give you a sense of where the waterfalls we’ve been to are located, check out the world map below…
