Breakfast in Paradise ๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Perhaps one of the best views that I have ever had at breakfast, is right here: youtube.com/shorts/5gyKwXSyO2w

Imagine having delicious food here and having such a wonderful view๐Ÿ˜ƒ. That was my situation while vacationing on the beautiful island of Kauai. Storm โ›ˆ clouds aside, it was a view that I could get used too.

The location where I captured this video is the Hilton Garden Inn in Kauai, Hawaii. Should your travel plans take you to Kauai in the near and not so distant future, consider adding this place to your vacation plans. It is certainly a bargain compared to more pricier hotels in Kauai.

What you are seeing is the garden area of the hotel, which is located right outside of the restaurant. On this particular day, I was enjoying the top notch breakfast at there and wanted to capture the beautiful view. When you take a picture or video, it tends to last longer ๐Ÿ˜‚!

Happy Motherโ€™s Dayโค๏ธโค๏ธ!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the true beautiful treasures of the world ๐ŸŒŽ. Having been blessed with a great mother, I can never underestimate the power of a mother’s influence on a life๐Ÿ˜Š. A mother’s love and affection can never be minimized.

One of the things that Mom (and Dad) passed on to me was the desire to travel to new locations. We used to take summer trips in the car to various locations. I remember how cool it was to see a new place that I had never seen before ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. It was almost as if I was in a different country. Here is a great video, that I had to share, which gave me the same vibe as when I was a kid: youtube.com/shorts/N3PPLNdQZH8

Hope that you enjoyed this video. This was the first video that I captured after landing in Hawaii. It was jaw dropping and will be forever burned in my mind. Little did I know how much adventure awaited me during this entire trip!

Tropical ๐ŸŒด Vibes for the Weekend ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Tropical vibes are the best vibes ๐Ÿ˜Š! I love traveling to tropical places and experiencing tropical adventures๐Ÿ˜ƒ. For me, I could retire on a tropical island somewhere and live happily ever after. That’s my retirement plan for sure ๐Ÿ˜‚. The toughest thing for me will be figuring out which tropical island that I would like to retire on.

If there is ever one island that stands out in my mind, it would be the beautiful island of Kauai, which absolutely took my breath away๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I have never seen an island as beautiful as I saw visiting Kauai. To say that it is the number one travel location that I have ever visited, is spot on. Here is just a glimpse of the type of beauty that you will see there: youtube.com/shorts/90vPMdD89OI

The video above, captures some of the Smith Fern Grotto, which is a must see when visiting Kauai. If you are a lover of all things tropical, look no further than the Smith Fern Grotto. In order to get here, you have to take a 15-20 minute boat ride and walk through a small forest to get there!

Sounds like an adventure for sure and you are sure to enjoy the sights and the sounds of visiting this beautiful place. Hope that you will make your plans soon to visit.

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!

Waterfall Vibes – So Amazing ๐Ÿคฉ!

Who doesn’t love a beautiful waterfall? Of course, everyone does. There is just something about seeing the water fall from different elevations that really appeals to is as human beings๐Ÿ˜Š! In fact, we like it so much that the sounds of waterfalls is often used to either generate calmness in us and/or sleepiness. We are fans of waterfalls and we cannot get enough of seeing them.

If you have followed this blog for some time, you know that I am a huge fan of waterfalls. Both times that I have visited Hawaii, it was to chase waterfalls. Thankfully ๐Ÿ˜… I not only chased them but also captured video of them to be used on this blog and shared widely on social media. Here is a video of Wailua Falls, for your viewing pleasure: youtube.com/shorts/9rO8BlTaudE

Very beautiful waterfall to chase for sure๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I saw my first waterfall back in 2021 and I have been hooked ever since. I have posted videos of each of the waterfalls that I have seen, out here on my blog. Feel free to go see those posts also. They are really incredible!

Although my experience with waterfalls have been entirely in Hawaii, waterfalls exist in other places of the world ๐ŸŒŽ. Feel free to explore waterfalls closer to where you may live. They are such beautiful natural wonders! I plan to explore other places of the world ๐ŸŒŽ to chase additional waterfalls in the near future!

May the 4th Be With You๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

May the fourth be with you on Star Wars Day๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Hope you are enjoying the day. Growing up as a young kid, I was an avid Star Wars fan! I used to have so many life saber battles with so many of my friends. Of course, we didn’t have actual life sabers but used to use wooden sticks instead ๐Ÿ˜‚! Those were the days for sure.

One of the best life experiences that I had was visiting NASA. I visited Cape Canaveral once and Johnson Space Center once. Here is a quick video from the Astronaut’s Gallery at Johnson Space Center: youtube.com/shorts/yQB93Xh0PZ8

Isn’t it just amazing? I love the starship vibes ๐Ÿ˜! NASA is by far the next best thing to going to space itself. Of course, Blue Origin and SpaceX is making space travel more within reach for everyone. As years go by, space travel will become more and more affordable.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will visit this blog early and often for more travel adventures ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Nature Views from Kauai ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Smith’s Grotto is definitely a must see ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! ! It is a wonderful place to visit during any Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ adventure. This tour was absolutely one for the ages: youtube.com/shorts/28c-agNN3Qw

Hawaii, as you have seen from the videos that have been posted, is an absolute dream. On the video above, we are on a nature journey to see the infamous Smith Grotto!๐Ÿ˜ƒ Could not believe the absolute beautiful views that I was able to capture on the journey there.

In a later post on this blog, I will ensure that I post video exclusively from the Smith Grotto location. It is an absolute thing of beauty! I was so surprised to find out that so many people get married there!

Hope that you enjoyed the video above โค๏ธ! It was such a joy to visit this place and I am glad to be able to share it with everyone.

Cruising is Fun ๐Ÿคฉ!

Cruising is fun especially when you are on a magnificent vacation of your dreams ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I am an avid cruiser and I love being out on the deep blue sea. Nothing quite beats being out on the deep blue sea with the wind blowing in your face. Here is a short clip of me having fun: youtube.com/shorts/1DUxPEV8eU0

Keeping my balance was the goal here and thankfully ๐Ÿ˜… I succeeded ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was a little on the slippery side and of course, the boat was moving pretty fast ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Mission accomplished and the picture captures the wonderful excitement that I was feeling at the time.

The wonderful things about visiting the Napali Coast is observing the beautiful ocean and the gorgeous mountains. You travel for views like these and you are rewarded accordingly ๐Ÿ˜‚. There is just something so very peaceful about cruising that makes you forget about the rest of the world ๐ŸŒŽ.

Out there, everything feels right even if in reality, it is not.๐Ÿ˜ƒ Travel affords you the opportunity to take a break from the regular and mundaneness that we often experience during the course of life. We could all use a break from time to time. The key to taking a vacation is to plan for a vacation! My planning usually takes place months in advance in order to get the cheapest price available. I definitely encourage everyone to do the same!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Weekend Hula Vibes๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ!

Hula Vibes are the best vibes. I got a chance to see this up close and personal at the Smith Family Luau in Kauai Hawaii๐Ÿ˜ƒ! This trip represented the first time that I had heard ever experienced the Luau experience and I loved it ๐Ÿ˜. Here is just a glimpse of what I saw during this very entertaining show: youtube.com/shorts/4VCXpbPVXKU

Hula Dancing is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ culture. So much so, that you could have the Luau experience at your hotel or at a different location (like this one) almost anywhere on the island. You literally have your pick of venues. Before visiting Hawaii, I was told by a friend of mine that you have to have the Luau experience at least once. I am certainly glad that I did!

It felt so very good to have checked this experience off the bucket list. When I first visited Hawaii on last year, mostly all of the Luaus were closed due to Covid. Since things are opening up, the Luaus are as well.

Hope that you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed seeing it๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Bad Guy Vibes-Hawaii Style๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Nothing like a great performance๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Especially when it involves fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ. I did not know that I was a fan of fire shows until I saw my first fire show in Hawaii. If you have never been to one of these shows, do yourself a favor and sign up for one. I was very fortunate to have this performance at the hotel that I was staying in. Here is just a glimpse of that performance: youtube.com/shorts/E3U5e_Lz6Es

This guy is just talented๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I shudder to think how many times he might have gotten burned doing this ๐Ÿ˜‚ but he has perfected his trade ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. The name of the fire show is called the Ahi Uila Fire Show and it can be booked from the Hilton Garden Inn in Kauai. Hawaii.

I really had an awesome time๐Ÿ˜ƒ. This was so much of a great, rich experience ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Turns out that these type of shows are a part of the luau experience and is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ culture.

If you would like to see more of this phenomenal fire show, I have additional blog posts and videos that I have recently posted. If you enjoy this one, you will surely enjoy the other blog posts as well.
