Happy Earth Day to everyone! 😀Hope that you are having a great day. We are all living in this world so we all have a shared responsibility to care for the world that we live in. It we all practice Earth Day awareness and sharing everyday, we can really make a difference in a positive way!
I have shared a beautiful nature video of Kahuna Falls on my YouTube channel- it shows the wonderful beauty of the earth and one of its natural wonders. Feel free to check it out here: youtube.com/shorts/8csZFOTMq8g
Nature and travel in general, has a way of taking your breath away and also can leaving you speechless 😶. Natural wonders in all of its magestic forms, makes us acutely aware that we are just a small part of the world. Yet we can do so much if we all just do our part.
Rarely, nowadays, do you come across something that truly takes your breath away! Well, for me, that time has come – ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Akaka Falls: youtube.com/watch
It totally exceeded my expectations. Such a great experience all around. It was time well spent driving the 2.5 hours, through the beautiful mountains of Hilo, to see this great sight! 😍 It left such of a lasting impression on me that I will look for places where there are waterfalls in order to book future vacations.
As part of my travel experiences, I look for excursions that I have never done before. This was one of those type of excursions. I have heard a saying before that, you only live once but if you do it right, once is enough. I certainly subscribe to that philosophy! 😀🙏👍🙌
Hope that you enjoy the video and make sure t lo check this blog for more travel journeys! Have a wonderful day 😀🙌❤️
It is so very easy to have ocean eyes in Hawaii 😎! So many great views to see!it was literally a heaven on earth 🌎. This particular video is from the beach located outside of the Hilton Waikoloa resort that I stayed in during my vacation on last month.
It honestly felt so great to be out and about after a tough year that 2020 was. I took so many pictures and videos, so there will be more to share. I look forward to more adventures on this year, it certainly will all depend on the vaccine rollout and the requirements for travel that will come out as a result.
From not being able to travel for over a year, I have a renewed sense of appreciation for it. I certainly will never take it for granted. It is in fact a magnificent luxury to be able to do so. I count myself as having been blessed to travel.
Enjoy the video that I have uploaded to YouTube. Feel free to reach out if Hawaii is in your destination plans in the near future.
There is just something about the beach that provides an automatic relaxation feel.😎 We visit once or many times and cannot wait to visit again. Whether it is the sound of the rushing waves, sand between your toes, or the beautiful sky above, being at the beach gives you the peace within that we desperately long for!
One of the beaches that I visited recently was the Punalu’u Black Sand Beach in Hawaii. First time that I have ever seen black sand on a beach but it was quite cool to the touch on a hot day, like the one captured on the video below. Black sand contains minerals that does not allow if to get hot like white sand. I was able to pick up the sand and look at the beautiful crystals that were on full display.
It was quite a beautiful beach – as you will see below. Cannot wait to visit this beach or any beach, for that matter, 🏖 again! 😂 youtube.com/watch
Just another day in paradise as the old adage says – and truly this was. This was the reason why I got into traveling in the first place – to see this marvelous world that we live in! It doesn’t matter where you go, travel has a way of instantly making you speechless and a storyteller all at the same time 😀!
Such as was the case with beautiful Hawaii – the first trip since the start of the pandemic 😷! This bucket list travel destination clearly stands as number one out of all the various locations that I have visited.
One of the reasons for that is captured in the following video that I have shared below. It was taken at the Hilton Waikoloa Village located on the Big Island 🏝 of Hawaii! I hope that you enjoy 😊!
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 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.
Attached below are some highlights from my 2020 posts from Instagram (travelfitguru). Feel free to connect on that platform and on Twitter and TikTok. Hope that you enjoy and that you have a wonderful and prosperous New Year! 😊
