Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! Whether you are spending it alone or with family, enjoy every single bit of it. Holidays are a vital part of the work, vacation, repeat process.πŸ˜ƒ Everyone needs to take a break from the everyday routine. Does a body good for sure.

The video above was taken on the Big Island of Hawaii at Punalu’u Beach πŸ–. Never have found a beach that I did not like πŸ‘. This is one of the best that I have seen.

Christmas Vibes πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽ„

Christmas is almost here! Just around the corner now- it is hard to believe 😊. This video brings out all of the Christmas feels: youtube.com/shorts/qUObs_d3HjA

I love this time of the year, it is a time for giving and receiving❀️. As you walk around, the Christmas feeling is everywhere. I have seen more smiles than I have seen the entire year πŸ˜‚. Despite all that we all have been through, we set it aside and get ready to enjoy the holidays.

Absolutely the most wonderful time of the year and the most anticipated. I am enjoying the holidays already, spending time with family and friends. We are doing so in a safe and effective manner and definitely encourage others to do so.

Hope that you all are enjoying the holiday away and that you enjoy the video.

Skipping to the Good Part 😻😻!

Can we skip to the good part?: youtube.com/shorts/qcOewJc0ZNc

This was absolutely the good part for me. Cannot beat these views. Such a beautiful fountain on a beautiful campus in Texas! Hope that you enjoy the video.

As I was walking around, taking in the views, I was just amazed. It is always great to get outside and take in your surroundings. So many things can be missed and they are right under your nose.

The great thing about travel is that you can take in sights not only around the world but also right around the corner. It always helps when the weather is beautiful as it is in the video.

Have a great day and stay safe πŸ˜€!

Countdown to Christmas πŸŽ…!

The most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us 😊! Hard to believe that Christmas is getting closer. I am hoping that you all are enjoying Christmas Week. Wanted to share some great Christmas views that I captured while strolling around the neighborhood: youtube.com/shorts/fIIHDSJ6yNY

These decorations are truly next level! The beautiful attention to detail, clearly stands out for me. I have seen many decorations before but these are truly superb.

Christmas time just makes everyone happier. There are certainly some things to not be happy about: when you think of love ones that have passed away, omicron and delta variants etc. Universally, this is a time in which people are in a loving, giving and receiving mood all at once.

We also tend to take more days for vacations, which is the reason that these type of travel blogs provide insights into different places to go, what to do and where to stay. The Christmas spirit is alive and well which is why oftentimes it is the most anticipated time of the year.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you will check back early and often for future posts! Have a great dayπŸ˜€

View of the DayπŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸŒ΄

If you need a pick me up for the day, then look no further than this video: youtube.com/shorts/M-yCNDwS7aY

It is sure to bring a smile to your face especially if you enjoy wonderful views. This is an absolute beauty! I could not believe the views that I was seeing. What made it especially great was the lookout point where I was standing. It provided an excellent bird’s eye view of the shore.

This view was captured in the wonderful city of San Jose del Cabo. If you have never visited, do yourself a favor and go. It is literally located about 15 minutes from the well known city of Cabo San Lucas. Cabo is a beautiful city to see, as you can tell from my earlier posts on this blog.

Certainly appreciative of this view during the fall and winter months. I am definitely not a lover of cold weather but the snow views that I have seen on social media and other places are just magnificentπŸ™ŒπŸ˜€!

Happy travels to you all and I hope that you enjoyed the wonderful video above. Have a great day!

Footprints in the Sand 😎!

One of my favorite poems of all time is “Footprints in the Sand”. If you have not read it, I encourage you to do so. Such a powerful message that resonates even more now in the days we live in. I cannot help but think about this poem when I look at this beautiful beach, filled with footprints πŸ‘£ in the sand: youtube.com/shorts/-NVWqJiQ9co

If you are wondering which hotel that this video was taken, it was taken at the Hilton Los Cabos Resort. I was on the balcony of my hotel room which thankfully was an ocean side view. Ocean view rooms are always ideal but they tend to be more expensive.

This particular day, as you can tell from the video, was clear and sunny. We tend to long for these type of days especially during the winter. The great thing about tropical 🐠 locations is that they have these days throughout the whole year. Birds have the right idea to fly south for the winter πŸ˜‚!

Snow birds are very popular this time of the year. There are always warm, tropical locations to flock too. Not a bad way to spend winter πŸ₯ΆπŸ˜ƒβ˜οΈ!

TGIF Vibes – Enjoy 😊!

TGIF- so very glad that the end of the week has come πŸ˜ƒ! This week has been particularly busy, so it will be great to enjoy some rest and relaxation. Usually my idea of rest and relaxation is going on a trip somewhere but it is also particularly gratifying to take some time off at home. Here is a great video especially for a Friday: youtube.com/shorts/W54IrxXwpc0

Sort of gets you in a Friday type of mood, huh. I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson’s music and this is one of my favorite songs of his. Hope that you enjoyed the short video. Got a chance to see this performance in Punta Cana at the Coco Bongo Club there. As you can see, the performance was totally epic!

It is so amazing that he is one of the all-time favorites to impersonate. I have gone many places and I almost have a Michael Jackson impersonation for every location πŸ˜‚! The King of Pop continues to live on from his music as well as from countless impersonations. Sort of like the King of Rock and Roll 🎸, Elvis Presley.

I hope that this Friday finds you safe, healthy and happy wherever you are. Check back early and often for more travel adventures from around the world 🌎!

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea πŸβ›±πŸ˜ƒ!

A daily dose of Vitamin Sea can keep you happy and strong πŸ˜‚. Studies have shown that it can greatly reduce burnout occurred from overworking and stress! A good vacation can certainly provide a relief from the stress and mundaneness of a typical week. Here is a video from one of my favorite places to vacation – Cozumel, Mexico: youtube.com/shorts/HhNNddSABwY

This video was taken from my beach chair as I was taking in all of the beauty that Cozumel has to offer. I can still remember some of the sights and sounds of being there. It is an incredible vacation destination that is definitely a must see. I stand amazed every time that I visit. I hope that you will add it to your bucket list for a future trip.

If you have been a follower of this blog, you have undoubtedly seen other videos from Cozumel, in addition to other places that I have had the pleasure of visiting down through the years. I plan to visit even more locations in the upcoming year so stay tuned for other adventures! πŸ˜ƒ

Sailing the Cabo Sea 🚀 🌊

If you have never gone sailing before, it is such a wonderful experience. Before sailing ⛡️, I would avoid it because I figured that I would get sea sick πŸ€’. Here is a voyage that I took along the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas: youtube.com/shorts/JgOcPplWsH4

Prior to this voyage, I took my first cruise with Carnival. I packed Dramamine, a wristband (that helps avoid seasickness) and I packed the little circle bandaid type strips that are designed to go behind your ear. To my surprise, I did not get seasick but felt pretty sick because I spent money on all of these products that are designed to help prevent seasickness πŸ˜‚.

Still, it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. I had a wonderful time on both the Carnival and Cabo voyage. As you can tell from the video, the weather was very beautiful and the waves were not as choppy. Truly one of the best voyages that I have been on because of the weather and the wonderful tour guide that we had on that day.

In case you are interested in booking this same tour, it can be found on the Trip Advisor site or app. It is the Cabo San Lucas Glass Bottom Boat tour and it contains a couple of hours on the sea, tour of a glass blowing factory, lunch, tequila tasting and a tour around the city of San Jose del Cabo. You will be so glad that you booked this tour – prepare to have loads of fun 🀩!

Cruise Cabin Ocean Views πŸ˜†!

If you have never seen the view of the ocean from inside a cabin room, prepare to be amazed: youtube.com/shorts/8dS_vY4-nCQ

Isn’t it just spectacular 🀩? When I saw this when I took my first cruise, I was truly amazed. Seeing the waves in the vast ocean, just blew my mind. Almost could not sleep seeing this amazing sight.

Most times when I have seen video from a cruise 🚒, I have rarely seen what the cabin rooms look like or the ocean view from within the cabin. I am glad to at least check one of these items off of the list for all of you that will view the video. I will have to look through my video archive to see if I have room pictures πŸ˜‚.

The views that we see on vacation, oftentimes gets burned into our mind and this particular trip provided no exception. I hope that you enjoy the video and that you have a great week ahead!
