It was a very long time coming but I finally took my first trip since the pandemic on last week. It was a trip to a location that for years, had been on the bucket list. That location was Hawaii! 🙌😃
Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii (via Kona) was a complete dream come true! I could not believe my eyes seeing the picturesque landscape of mountains, beaches, waterfalls (oh my 😃). One more thing, Hawaii has volcanoes 🌋. Truly unbelievable having all of the above in one location literally miles away from one another. The climate and elevation changed as you drove through the mountains and adventured to the Volcano State Park. You went from 85 degrees Fahrenheit on the beach to between 30 and 40 degrees at the volcano and in the mountains.
The people were so very friendly and so accommodating! Some of the best folks that I have ever met. I can truly say that out of all the various places that I have visited, this is truly the best. Here is a video of the sights and sounds of this beautiful paradise. More to come..
What an exciting game it was on last night! It is a magnificent story of how Tom Brady has been so consistent for so many years. He has played in the league for at least 20 years and has won the Super Bowl now an unprecedented 7 times. More than any other player or any other NFL franchise. He made the difference in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers getting to the next level and winning the Super Bowl. Great people do great things and it was awesome to be able to watch the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) win one more time.
I am definitely reminded of a time when the Super Bowl was in Texas. During that year, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were playing the Atlanta Falcons. I got a chance to visit the Super Bowl LI Fan experience which occurs during the days leading up to the Super Bowl. I have included a video below which captures some sights from that time. Enjoy!
I had an opportunity late last year to visit the UniverSoul Circus and what a a great time it was. Could not believe the amazing time that I experiencing the sights and sounds of this beautiful circus 🤡! It was an excellent time and so much fun!
Of course since we were in the middle of a pandemic 😷, all Covid protocols were followed. It was just fun to be out and about and to see people, like the good old days. How this is so missed. The performances were so very good. It included high wire acts, motorcycle stunts, beautiful performing animals and death defying stunts.
Even the wonderful clowns 🤡 were such a great source of entertainment. They kept the crowd very entertained and provided a lot of fun for the socially distanced, small crowd that was there.
Attached is a video from their great show. If ever you get an opportunity to see the UniverSoul Circus 🤡, please do not hesitate. Have a great day! 😀
Manhattan, New York is certainly one of the best places that I have had the pleasure of visiting 😄! The city really just takes your breath away. There is so much to do and so little time to do it unless you have a couple of weeks to vacation there.
During my travels there, I have seen so much. At last count, I probably have been there at least 7 times, and I must admit, I have not seen all there is to see of the city. I have visited the Empire State Building, 30 Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Broadway, Central Park etc.
Still on the list: Battery Park, World Trade Memorial, Radio City Music Hall etc. Hopefully, once the pandemic 😷 cases drop and travel get back to normal, I could visit these attractions among others. One of the attractions that I would certainly recommend is the Circle ⭕️ Line Tour. It is an absolute must when visiting the city. You get a chance to see all of NYC from a boat. In addition, you see the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium etc.
As always, I have attached a video that includes a few of the sights and sounds of the city 🌃. Enjoy!
As you travel to different parts of the country, you see a lot of things and you have many experiences, One such experience, was the UniverSoul Circus! What an outstanding experience it was! Thoroughly enjoyed my time there under the BigTop! So much to see and so much fun also! 🤩
The talent there was second to none and the stunts were breathtaking. They seemed to have it all, trapeze artists, motorcycle stunts, dancing dogs etc. I was completely blown away by the shows and left with an experience that I would never forget! 😀
If you get a chance to see the UniverSoul Circus in person or online, please do so, you will not regret it. I have included a video below that gives a glimpse of said experience!
What a year 2020 has been! Hard to believe this is the last day of a year that will forever be remembered for the pandemic, social injustice marches, masks, loved ones that were lost etc. This year has had its share of ups and many more downs. Through it all and in it all, we have made it to the final day. 😊
I am very hopeful for a wonderful and prosperous New Year for myself and for us all. 🙌 Hoping that we return to some since of normalcy within 2021. I believe that things can and will get better. We must keep the faith that better days are coming.
Thankfully I was able to do some traveling prior to the lockdown and quarantine period in March of this year. I was able to take a cruise to the Western Caribbean (Costa Maya, Cozumel and Belize). Also once the lockdown was lifted, I was able to take a staycation and visit a few places.

Happy Monday to all! So excited that there are only a few days before Christmas! Clearly, the most wonderful time of the year.🤩 This has been an extremely tough year for so many which makes the holiday season of even greater importance.
As I look around where I live, people are in a giving mood and a quite festive mood also despite the difficulties that this year has brought. I have attached one of the examples of a neighborhood that I recently visited. They are clearly not letting 2020 get them down. It was a joy to see the many decorations that are up and to experience the festive spirit that many have.

Reminiscing on very good times earlier this year onboard a Carnival Cruise to the Western Caribbean😃🙌. The ship was at reduced capacity but everyone on board enjoyed the wonderful vibes.
It seems by looking at the video attached below that this is not an event that happened in 2020 but really of a long, forgotten time that was mask 😷 free. This was in fact, back in March 2020. That time was the calm before the proverbial storm!
I hope that you enjoy this video and I definitely hope to return to these times again. Until that time, stay safe and healthy😃!

Once upon a time in Montego Bay, I had one of the best travel adventures of my life! 😊 This was my first and only time visiting this beautiful place but it will not be the last. So much fun in the sun ☀️, it was try hard to leave.
My stay started at the Rose Hall Hilton which is a superb all-inclusive hotel 🏨. Shots in the video were taken on the grounds of this gorgeous hotel. Truly one of the best places that I have stayed. This hotel had it all, great food, awesome shows and beautiful amenities.
It was wonderfully located on a beach and it included a water park for the kids. The pools were magnificent and very large. I would definitely recommend this hotel with its rather spacious rooms!
Also included in the video are shots from Dunn’s River Fall, Saint Ann’s River Rafting and other sights!
