Balcony Views from Jamaica ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Jamaica is an absolute dream! You cannot go wrong visiting any of the beautiful cities๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Jamaica is so very rich in beauty and magnificent culture that when you visit for short time, you want to stay a lot longer. I had the pleasure of staying at one of the best hotels in Montego Bay – The Hilton Rose Hall. Here is just a glimpse of what you can expect visiting this magnificent hotel: youtube.com/shorts/9iw9wCB-F5M

By far, one of the absolute best views that I have ever get seen from a hotel balcony. I originally asked for a ocean front room but got this room instead. I am so glad that I did. It was so wonderful waking up to this view every morning. This is absolutely why you take vacation, to wake up to views like these.

I was so very impressed with the beautiful views and the wonderful amenities that this hotel has to offer. Even the beds were so very comfortable. I almost wanted to take it back home ๐Ÿก with me ๐Ÿ˜‚! The weather was beautiful the entire time that I was there – not one rain ๐ŸŒง cloud in the sky.

I hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will make your plans to visit Jamaica and stay at this beautiful place. Trust me, you will be glad that you did ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Carnival Cruise Dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ Party ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‰

No party quite like a Carnival Party because the Carnival Party don’t stop ๐Ÿ›‘! The sail away parties for Carnival Cruises are epic๐Ÿ˜ƒ. There are so many videos of these parties online and the more you watch them, the more you want to be a part of them. Here is a video of one that I was able to be a part of: youtube.com/shorts/rOnKtNBGfyA

This is just pure unadulterated fun ๐Ÿคฉ! This is exactly what you can expect when sailing away on a Carnival Cruise. This particular video was captured prior to the pandemic ๐Ÿ˜ท, so things may have changed quite a bit when you set sail. These were certainly great times and the good news is that the cruise ships are still sailing.

With the arrival of August, it is now time for back to school. If you have some time before the kids go back to school or if you don’t have kids but have some vacation time, I certainly encourage you to consider going on a cruise. The industry has taken a severe hit during the pandemic, so they are offering all sorts of deals right now.

I used to think that I could never be able to afford a cruise but the cruise lines are offering some of the best travel deals around. The advantage is that you see more exotic locations all at once instead of flying individually to each location. The downside of cruising is that you have a limited amount of time to see everything. So there are indeed trade offs but rest assured, anytime away from work, whether by sea or air, is time well spent ๐Ÿ˜‚!

Feels like Summer๐Ÿ˜Žโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒด!

As summer continues to wind down – it is so important to enjoy as much of it as you can๐Ÿ˜Š. Especially since August is right around the corner and for many people, back to school will be a reality. Cozumel is a perfect last minute destination to enjoy a great vacation. Here is a glimpse of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/RG3hib2jhtA

Looks pretty cool, huh ๐Ÿ˜Ž! That is absolutely what you can expect from visiting Cozumel. Cozumel is such a beautiful island to see. There is just so much to do and so little time ๐Ÿ˜‚. On the occasions that I have visited, I felt like I needed more time to spend there to explore. I visited only for a day or two when I have cruised there via Carnival.

Would definitely like to spend a full week there to unwind. On this particular day, it was a joy to discover the beautiful sights and sounds of Chankanaab, an amazing beach park that has it all. Along with what you see in the video above, it also has animal shows, swimming with the dolphins ๐Ÿฌ and even tequila tasting! Absolutely my type of place to go.

I must warn you ahead of time, hours of time will disappear when you visit this wonderful place. There is so much to see and do, you will struggle to fit it all into one day. All that means is that you will have to make sure to visit again some time in the near future!

Journey to the Arch๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Some people live for an adventure and I happen to be one of those people๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Does not matter what type of transportation that I am using to get there, I enjoy the journey. It has often been said that half the fun of getting where you are going is the journey. The journey to the Cabo San Lucas Arch was a little rocky but well worth the wait, as you can see here: youtube.com/shorts/BuWr-66qFpE

What you see in the video, is the World Famous – Cabo San Lucas Arch๐Ÿ˜Ž! If you have never seen it before, here it is. What a magnificent sight it is. By the way, the main way to see the Arch and all of its splendor, is by boat ๐Ÿšค.

The boat that I am sailing on is a glass bottom boat that seats around 8 people. These type of boats are used a lot as you sail to various excursions around the world. I prefer these because you can see the fish swimming up to the floor of your boat ๐Ÿ˜‚. It is a sight to see!

This particular voyage took me to various excursions along the way (Neptune’s Finger, Lover’s Beach ๐Ÿ– etc.) Always great when you can see so many sights all in one tour๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I would definitely recommend taking this tour or any glass bottom tour when visiting your location of choice. I had a positive experience and I am sure that you will also. Always check the reviews first to determine if the expedition is the right one for you and your family ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Cake by the Ocean Vibes๐Ÿ˜ปโค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ!

Visiting Cozumel Mexico was a dream come true. I have always heard great things about Cozumel and Mexico in general. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. The beach views were absolutely beautiful. Here is a clip from that wonderful experience: youtube.com/shorts/V9niQP1iRwc

Hope that you enjoyed the clip. The Beach views were just spectacular๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Hanging out there, just have me the best sense of peace. When you give everything that you got – working a job from week to week, you look forward to time away. Out of all of my travel experiences, I have never gone on a vacation and regretted it. I have come back better and more refreshed, every single time.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Cozumel is by far, one of the most popular vacation spots in Mexico. It is easily in the top 5 locations to visit. In the clip that I shared, this beach ๐Ÿ– is located in a place called Chankanaab. If you have followed this blog for some time, you have certainly heard of it and have seen videos from it. If you haven’t seen the videos, I certainly encourage you to take a look the previous videos.

In fact, if you are looking for a great place to visit this summer, consider Cozumel as a possible destination.๐Ÿ˜ƒ It is a gorgeous city and the views are to die for!๐Ÿ˜ปโค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธ- Omg ๐Ÿ˜†!

Cabo San Lucas is an absolutely gorgeous place๐Ÿ˜! I cannot wait to go back one of these days. The views are totally next level and it will leave a wonderful impression upon you. Although I have sailed various places around the world ๐ŸŒŽ, this particular expedition provided one of the most magnificent views that I have ever seen. Here is just a glimpse of the views that I saw on this incredible voyage: youtube.com/shorts/Bk-xbozIONE

The rock structure that you saw in the video is called, Neptune’s Finger. If it looks amazing on the video, it looks even more amazing in person ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I could not believe that we got as close as we did to it. It is one of the more iconic structures that you will see, sailing the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

On this voyage, I also got a chance to see the magnificent, Arc of Cabo San Lucas. That video is located on this blog, just in case you are interested in viewing it. I was completely awestruck looking at that magnificent structure. The water was particularly rough during that part of the tour, so that video has a flair of excitement and adventure.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you are enjoying a great weekend. Check back early and often for more travel adventures!

Carnival Cruise Vibes๐Ÿšข- Happy Friday๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ!

Carnival Cruise Line just has a way of making dreams come true. I have sailed them in the past and I always have been impressed with their commitment to customer service. I have always felt as if I was getting the best experience offered and consequently, I have enjoyed my experience cruising. Here is only a sample of what you can expect, when you choose fun ๐Ÿคฉ: youtube.com/shorts/SfvmvgTTTnY

When all is said and done, I would like to have cruised on not only Carnival, but also Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess etc. I guess you can say that I am a cruise addict. I must admit that I totally am ๐Ÿ˜‚. Admitting it is definitely a great first step ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Sure, taking an airplane to various destinations would get you there quicker but for so many times in life, it is more about the journey than the destination. The journey provides so many memories that will stay etched in your mind for years to come.

This particular video was taken while I was standing out on the Lido Deck, looking at the beautiful water ๐Ÿ’ฆ. I could remember this moment now as if it was yesterday. I did not have any idea at that time, of the many adventures that would take place in the upcoming days of my journey to the Western Caribbean. Feel free to check out this blog for adventures in Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel๐Ÿ˜ƒโค๏ธ!

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธinto the Weekend๐Ÿคฉ

Hope you are having a great day today ๐Ÿ˜! The weekend is fast approaching and some of you may be experiencing the weekend already. If you have ever been to Cabo San Lucas, it is such a magnificent place! It has probably gotten a bad reputation over the years with people acting badly there but it is such a gorgeous place to go. I have only been there once but it left quite an indelible impression on me.

In addition to camel ๐Ÿซ riding , for the first time, I got a chance to sail the Sea of Cortez on one of the magnificent voyages of my life. Seeing all of the sights and sounds of Cabo, made me look forward to coming back soon. Cabo is one of the best locations that I have ever visited and for one of the reasons captured right here: youtube.com/shorts/lPO5UBgj1Ng

The magnificent rock structure that you saw in the video is called Neptune’s Finger and aptly so because it resembles a finger ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was a beautiful day at sea on that day and I captured many other views previously in other blog posts. Please feel free to scroll this blog for other sea adventures!

Fun at Sea – Sail Away Vibes๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Nothing quite like a party ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน๐Ÿ”ฅ! Amazing how having fun ๐Ÿคฉ never goes out of style ๐Ÿ˜‚. If anything, we want more and more opportunities to be able to enjoy and to celebrate ๐ŸŽ‰. Truth is, that we spend so much time doing life that we rarely stop to smell the roses ๐ŸŒน and appreciate the life that we are living. I found a quote today that says, “Never be so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”.

Indeed, life has so much more to offer than the regular mundane life of making a living, paying bills, repeat. There has to be fun found somewhere in the equation of life. Going out and seeing the rest of the world is one way to incorporate fun but just lounging on the patio, meeting with friends for dinner, having a fun weekend etc. allows the mind and body to recharge. Here is an excellent fun time that I just shared to YouTube – I hope that you enjoy: youtube.com/shorts/bsxFUjqJ9sc

Fun times indeed – I still remember it like it was yesterday๐Ÿ˜ƒ! We had so much fun on that day that I did not want it to stop ๐Ÿ˜‚. Alas, it had to and we were on our way to Costa Maya! On this cruise, we would not only visit Costa Maya but Belize and Cozumel as well.

Hope that you enjoy the video and most importantly, stop ๐Ÿ›‘ to smell the roses ๐ŸŒน that you earned and deserve๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

TGIF – Letโ€™s Dance๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿพ!

Friday is here – hooray to the end of the week!๐Ÿ˜ƒ Hope that you had a great week so far and that you are having a Fantastic Friday. Something about Fridays that really gets you in the dancing mood! I am reminded of the last cruise ๐Ÿšข that I took, that had me in a dancing mood. Here is a snippet of that wonderful time: youtube.com/shorts/Z9rmuT0Ouws

Sort of gets you moving – I love that great song ๐ŸŽต๐Ÿ˜ƒ. We were on our way to the Western Caribbean and as you can tell, we were just a tad bit excited ๐Ÿ˜‚. Of course seeing the number of people all together, it goes without saying that these were pre-pandemic times. Sailing as I understand it, has resumed at ports. It is fully expected with the decline in Covid cases recently, that cruising will come back in a huge way.

This particular cruise took me to Costa Maya, Belize and lastly to Cozumel. My blog contains a number of videos from all of these places. Feel free to take a step through some of my previous posts to see great, original videos that you will not find anywhere else.

If you are traveling to either of the locations that I have listed above, you are sure to have an amazing time. When you are cruising to these different ports of call, you are given some hours (5 – 6) to take in the experience of the location and then it is time to get back on the ship ๐Ÿšข to cruise to another location. It is fun ๐Ÿคฉ and you are certainly left wanting even more time onshore.

Hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will make your plans to travel sometime in the near future.
