Paradise Found-Omg😎!

Island views are the best views, bar none! 😊 My last few vacations have been to tropical locations. Here is one of the best beaches that I have ever visited: youtube.com/shorts/4cgoEGbEgxM

Hope that you appreciate the beauty of this spectacular video. The contrast of black sand and blue water is just exceptional. Looking at this video takes me instantly back to sitting on the beach πŸ–. Especially experiencing such a cool day at home on today.

This is definitely paradise and I am so glad that I found it on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was so very impressive and a must visit if you are looking for vacation options in 2022. If you are thinking of visiting the Big Island of Hawaii soon, be sure to check out other posts like these on my blog.

Morning Views from Above🀩

I love waking up to early morning views. If I am traveling, I prefer to wake up to ocean and nature views. Here is a beautiful nature view that I captured from a recent visit to a resort: youtube.com/shorts/sb0V2qhjEQw

It is absolutely “just like πŸ”₯”😊! I love magnificent views such as these. I must admit, the well manicured golf ⛳️ greens add an extra touch to this great view. I feel that these types of views, help to get you ready for the day ahead. The peace within that you feel, makes you so glad that you took the time to travel.

Traveling opens your eyes to the beautiful world 🌎 in which we live. Of course with the omicron variant running rampant, there seem to be more cancellations than flights. Hopefully things will go back to normal sometime soon which will enable us to get on with the business of travel.

Views like the one that I captured above, makes the whole travel experience worthwhile. It is certainly time well spent, in the chaotic, ever changing world that we live in.

Michael Jackson Vibes😎🎡🎡

One of my favorite artists of all time is the King of PopπŸ˜€! His music still lives on, even though he is no longer with us. To my surprise, when I was visiting Jamaica, I was able to attend a concert at my hotel: Hilton Rose Hall. Here is a snippet of the performance: youtube.com/shorts/I_lqCaIU7rY

It was a great impersonation of Michael Jackson, down to the make up and dance πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎmoves. He was truly one of a kind but so was this hotel 🏨! If you ever venture to Montego Bay, Jamaica, I highly recommend staying at this hotel. It has wonderful performances, like the one above, and it is luxury personified. It has all of the amenities that you would want and the best part, it is all inclusive.

This has been my only all inclusive experience throughout my travels. It is totally the way to go for sure. All of the food and drinks are included in the price of the hotel. Cannot get any better than that.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

If you would like to see the other Smooth Criminal performance that I captured from this concert, feel free to look at the previous posts in my blog. Have a great day!

Left my ❀️ in San Francisco πŸ˜ƒ!

The City by the Bay is one of the best cities that I have ever visited. I fell in love with this beautiful city when I first visited back in 2004. Since then, I have visited multiple times and even captured my last trip to this gorgeous city (albeit a short video) which gives you a taste of the fun that I have experienced: youtube.com/shorts/ViyVfkQX4TU

Most of these shots were captured on a cruise tour of the Golden Gate Bridge. The scenery was spectacular but the weather was very cold πŸ₯Ά. Especially out on the water πŸ’¦. As it was famously said, “The coldest winter ever, was a summer in San Francisco” πŸ˜‚.

This is so very true. If you have ever visited San Francisco, you know what I am talking about. I always bring a jacket with me because I know how the weather is in downtown San Francisco. Bundle up, you will thank me later.πŸ˜ƒ It is very cold πŸ₯Ά near the water.

San Francisco has some of the best seafood I have ever tasted. So many great restaurants all in one place. Pier 31 is always a favorite stop of mine. I have eaten at plenty of restaurants there and they are all very good.

When you are there, you can view Alcatraz across the Bay. If you are so inclined, you can take a tour of the famous prison. I still have this on my to do list. I have heard that it is one of the best things to do in San Francisco.

Hope that you enjoy the video and will make your plans to visit San Francisco.

Beautiful DestinationπŸ˜ŽπŸŒ΄πŸ˜ƒ!

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations! This was certainly the case going through all of the travel restrictions in 2020 and waiting for that next travel adventure. Thankfully, it was Hawaii, one of the most beautiful destinations in the world 🌎. While riding as a passenger, I captured this incredible stroll along the coastline in downtown Kona, Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/86mIOxgIlWE

If only I can see views like these every day πŸ˜‚! These are views that you cannot wait to see when you get there and views you cannot wait to share once you have left. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the reason why you travel πŸ˜ƒ. There are so many places to see and just so little time to see them.

This particular stroll was part of a sight seeing tour that I booked while vacationing there in Kona. This tour took you through downtown Kona, to a coffee farm (Kona has the best coffee), to a hometown bakery, a black sand beach (I have videos on my blog) and lastly the tour took us to the only active volcano on the Hawaiian Islands, Mount Kilauea.

If all that was not enough, the tour provided lunch and dinner. Pretty impressive huh πŸ€”? I thought so and would happily do this tour again to soak in more of the spectacular views. I highly recommend doing this tour to see all there is to Kona.

The island is truly remarkable and it has made me even more of a fan of Hawaii. Truly in a class by itself for vacations!

New Years Vibes: Best WishesπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜Ž!

Happy 2022 to all of youπŸ˜€! Wishing you all a safe and prosperous New Year. Thanks for following my blog and for the comments that I have received in 2021. I am certainly ready for more and more travel adventures in 2022 and I hope that you are as well. I have composed a recap of my Kalahari Resorts visit and I would like to share it with you: youtube.com/shorts/0bXFikwSCkI

Hope that you enjoyed the video. Kalahari, both the beautiful resort and the indoor water park, greatly exceeded my expectations!πŸ˜ƒ If you have never been, hopefully you will take a trip in this new year. The one that I visited, opened up in November 2020 and it is located in Round Rock, Texas. There are other locations here in the USA so there should be one near where you live.

Did I mentioned that it is indoors πŸ˜‚? Which means that you can experience the whole water park experience in the climate control confines of the indoors, no matter what the weather may be outdoors. Perfect escape from the frigid cold weather that you may be experiencing in other parts of the USA or otherwise.

Wishing you and your families all the best that this New Year has to offer and I encourage each of you to work, vacation and repeat as often as you can this year!πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

New Years Eve 2021: Travel Highlights πŸ˜ŽπŸ™Œ

Final countdown to the end of the year. We are literally hours away from the start of a brand new year, 2022. No matter what we were expecting in 2021, the year in so many ways, exceeded some and fell woefully short of expectations. Here is some travel highlights from the past year: youtube.com/shorts/ycMXtiBRVw0

Hawaii was incredible and as you can tell from earlier posts, it was the best travel location by far. The gorgeous views cannot be replicated, it lays claim to its own picture perfect view of paradise. Hopefully some, if not all of you, had an opportunity to travel somewhere during the course of 2021. If not, hopefully 2022 will be a better year for travel.

Beaches are some of my favorite places to visit. All of the beaches in this video, were taken in Hawaii. I never seen a beach that I have not liked but these beaches are next level. I plan to visit another Hawaiian island on next year to experience even more of the LiveAloha experience.

Hopefully you enjoy the video above and that you will visit this blog early and often in the new year for other travel adventures! πŸ˜†

Unstoppable Holiday ViewsπŸ˜ŽπŸ™Œ

I hope that you are taking some quality time off this time of the year to unwind, relax and rejuvenate for the year ahead.πŸ˜ƒThis year has provided its share of ups and downs but nonetheless, we are still here! Here is a wonderful holiday adventure in Cozumel, just in case you need the break from the cold πŸ₯Ά weather or just a reminder of the summer, feel free to check it out: youtube.com/shorts/8n4TOQkF_Ik

Cozumel never looked as beautiful as it did on that day. It is such an amazing wonder that must been seen in order to adequately appreciate πŸ˜ƒ! If you have never been to Cozumel, do yourself a favor and go. It is truly an amazing place to visit. I have seen some great places in my travels but this one is truly one of the best.

If you are a snow bird πŸ¦…, you may consider taking a trip to this beautiful place. It is what is needed for rest and relaxation. Especially at the Dolphin 🐬 Discovery, which is where this video was taken. If you fancy, swimming with the dolphins, this is most certainly your place. You can also do some much needed shopping, tequila tasting, explore the beach among other things.

This place really has it all for you to thoroughly enjoy yourself and capture memories that are sure to last a lifetime! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œβ˜οΈ

Happy Holidays- Dance in the Rain πŸŒ§πŸ˜€!

There is an old saying that goes like this: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain”. This is so very true. We have storms in life that seem so overwhelming but we cannot lose hopeπŸ˜ƒ! We must learn the importance of dancing πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎin the midst of the storm. Realizing that storms do not last always but as we see in rainstorms, they appear for a while and all of the sudden they are gone. I observed a storm in, of all places, Hawaii. The beauty of the storm at this beach, kept me continuing to capture this video: youtube.com/shorts/9CtrmGv8J3Q

Sometimes there can certainly be beauty in the storm β›ˆ πŸ˜ƒ! As we see in the video, the raindrops are frequent and they are big. Yet the beauty of the water crashing along the shore is captivating. Even through the rain, this beach still continues to amaze me in this video.

This is the only black sand beach that I have visited as I have traveled. I certainly plan to seek out more to explore in the near future because I had so much fun visiting this one. 2022 may certainly provide an opportunity to visit another beach and who knows, maybe it could be a green sand beach, which I have heard so much about! πŸ˜ƒ

Counting Down to another yearπŸ˜€!

Another year is almost upon usπŸ˜€! Hard to believe that 2022 is quickly coming on the horizon. We are in the final week of 2021, and as we prepare for lift off – here is a look at the International Space Station Exhibit from NASA: youtube.com/shorts/9dvMkv-DSaU

Isn’t this just so cool 😎? I enjoyed visiting this magnificent exhibit and definitely encourage you all to visit when you are able to do so safely. I have been blessed to visit multiple NASA locations and I have enjoyed all of them. You can easily spend hours upon hours visiting the beautiful, out of this world exhibits and still want to see more πŸ˜‚.

I really do not have a favorite location, they are all so very interesting. Space always provides so much mystery and intrigue. We all would like to boldly go where we have never been before. Thankfully, with SpaceX and Blue Origin, we are getting to the point where space exploration is a reality for everyone.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you are getting prepared to lift off to a new year, 2022! πŸš€πŸ˜ƒπŸ’₯
