Water can travel in many different ways, such as through sewage systems or through poples houses.
Although the method in which the water travels is differrent, the water cycle still stays the same.
Precipitation(rain,hail or snow) falls onto mountains which then lead the water to rivers or tributaries(this leads to a bigger river).
The precipitation can fall onto the mountains sideways which means it could go straight to the sea.
When water from trees evaporate, it is called transpiration.
After the precipitation the water can either go to a river or any body over water.But in time, some of the water evaporates and goes into the clouds and when the cloud bursts the process starts again.
