Fans Only: Smooth Criminal Vibes😎!

Few trips that I have taken have had epic performances. This is one of the best that I have come across: youtube.com/shorts/VRywZ9G-J_A

I hope that you enjoyed this epic performance. It was so nicely done. If you have followed this blog, you already know, I am a big fan of Michael Jackson’s music.πŸ˜ƒIn particular, Smooth Criminal is one one of my personal favorites.

This performance was captured at the Coco Bongo Club in Punta Cana, which is located in the Dominican Republic πŸ‡©πŸ‡΄. One of the most beautiful places that you can travel to, highly recommend visiting. It is totally paradise on earth 🌍.

The impersonator did a fantastic job channeling the King of Pop. His music continues to live on throughout the world. Check back for more travel adventures πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ƒ!

After Thanksgiving FeelingπŸ˜ŠπŸ™Œ

Hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a great weekend as well! πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ Not sure if you can relate to this video or not but I sure can πŸ˜‚. Take a look: youtube.com/shorts/92KrMvafck8

Can you relate to this after Thanksgiving feeling? I sure can. Nothing else like the effects of a very appetizing Thanksgiving meal πŸ₯˜ and the tasty leftovers on the weekend. Sort of puts you in a very lazy mood.

This video was taken at the Houston Zoo during a recent vacation. I have never seen an animal this relaxed 😎. He is clearly relaxing and enjoying the day. Not sure how much he ate that day but maybe πŸ€” it was an equivalent of a Thanksgiving dinner πŸ˜‚!

As the Thanksgiving holiday comes to an end, I hope that you enjoyed your holiday and that you enjoyed the weekend in its entirety! πŸ˜€

Happy Thanksgiving πŸ¦ƒπŸ½πŸ!

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Hope that you enjoy your day. I look forward to this time of the year. Absolutely the most perfect time of the year especially after a very eventful year. Got an opportunity to check a major destination off of my bucket list, Hawaii. Here is one of the best videos from that trip: youtube.com/shorts/3s1jIVh5VdI

I love the beautiful contrast between the blue water and the black sand. It is just magnificent!πŸ˜„ What an excellent location to spend your time. I highly recommend visiting the Big Island of Hawaii. You will not only see beautiful beaches like the one of the video, but also waterfalls and mountains πŸ”.

Hawaii is a must see for anyone that needs a vacation from the ordinary. Out of all the destinations that I have visited, Hawaii is the very best!πŸ˜„ I look back at these pictures and I am amazed still. I know that you will be amazed! πŸ˜ƒ

Waterfall Chaser😎!

How I love chasing waterfalls! I am on a personal mission to see as many as I possibly can. Here is one that I saw recently that I wanted to share with you: youtube.com/shorts/OQCe3I9QvOk

Such a beautiful scene😻. Hard to believe that I got this close to one. In Akaka State Park in Hawaii, there are two: Akaka Falls (this one) and Kalua Falls. They are so incredible to see in person. You will be completely blown away by the beauty!

Before going to this park, I had never seen a waterfall before other than in videos posted online. I was determined that this would be the trip that I would have this experience. I looked up the directions from my hotel room and made the trek to boldly go where I had never gone before πŸ˜‚.

What I did not realize at the time is how mountainous the Big Island of Hawaii is. As I got to higher elevations, my ears were popping and the road seemed more and more winding. When I saw the “Watch out for falling rocks” signs, uh πŸ™„ I got a little nervous 😬.

Thankfully πŸ˜…, I did not encounter any falling rocks πŸͺ¨ along the way but I captured some unbelievable views from within the park. It was a dream come true! πŸ˜ƒ

Touch the sky viewsπŸ˜ƒ ✈️

Sky views are the best views😊! Especially when you see sights like this:youtube.com/shorts/zmd-fLimBvY

Lake Dallas looks amazing from high above! Certainly something to behold for sure. A day in the air is just absolute happiness for me.πŸ˜ƒ This particular day was nice and clear which made for a great time to capture this video.

Of course as we all know, not all sky views are worth capturing πŸ˜‚. I have spent a great deal of my airtime, in the past, not capturing these beautiful views. The inability to travel on last year, changed my perspective totally. I used to take these magical moments for granted, but now I no longer do.

I believe that I am not alone. This past weekend, while traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, I boarded a plane ✈️ in which every window seat was taken! πŸ˜ƒThat has never happened in my travels before but it happened on that flight. Perhaps the pandemic has changed a lot of folks viewing habits.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will check back early and often for more travel adventures πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ!

Paradise Found – Black Sand Beach πŸ– πŸ˜ŽπŸ–

If you have never seen a black sand beach before, take a look at this beauty: youtube.com/shorts/DuYuHBMULK8

I love the great contrast between the sand and the blue waterπŸ˜ƒ. What a spectacular day it was to be there also. I was particularly grateful on this day because on my previous visit to this beach, it was raining cats and dogs πŸ˜‚. I had no other choice but to leave because the weather was so bad.

On my trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, I was looking forward to having this experience. I could not wait to experience this for myself. The sand was so cool to the touch, if it was possible to take some of the sand back to me, I would have, just as a great souvenir!

After going to my first black sand beach, I am now looking for opportunities to go to other black sand beaches! They are so beautiful and an awesome wonder. I will need to visit the Big Island again to see if I can visit a green sand beach πŸ–. Imagine how cool that would be!

24k Cruise Views from CarnivalπŸ€©πŸ™ŒπŸ˜Ž

Totally love cruise vibes and great music πŸ˜ƒ. Nothing else like it. I am reminded of good times and great vibes onboard a cruise to the Western Caribbean. Wanted to share these views, they were incredible: youtube.com/shorts/0gweasHuMrQ

This view is from the Lido Deck onboard the Carnival Cruise Ship🚒. Back in pre-pandemic times, this is what the atmosphere looked like. During the time we currently live in, it looks too crowded but certainly hard to believe that this was normal at one time.

To be completely honest, I would like to sail again when the times captured in the video return. No doubt, the industry is doing all that it can to keep people safe now, but pre-pandemic times, in my opinion, provided the most fun because you could interact with the most people.

Hopefully those times will return soon but in the meantime, there are other adventures to explore. Definitely encourage everyone to works, vacation and repeat, especially during the holidays. Does not matter where you go, just go πŸ˜‚. You owe it to yourself for all of the hard work during the course of the year!

Living on a Prayer πŸ™ πŸ˜€!

One of my favorite 80s songs is “Living on a Prayer”. It has a way of getting you going when you are stuck in neutral to start the day πŸ˜‚. Here is this great song live as it is performed on a cruise ship enroute to the USA from Cozumel: youtube.com/shorts/UEi7YSXt4mo

This performance was electric and I was glad to be a part of it. Always helps in the enjoyment of it when one of your favorite songs is being performed! This 80s Party πŸŽ‰ will always be one of my favorite memories from the wonderful entertainment that I experienced onboard this Carnival Cruise.

As I have said before in previous posts, I definitely encourage you all to take at least one cruise 🚒 within your lifetime. You will not regret it, you will come back with a different perspective on travel. It certainly enlightens the travel experience when you visit various locations on a single voyage. These are destinations that you would have to visit separately on an airplane.

I hope that you enjoy the video – it was a wonderful experience πŸ˜€!

Daily Dose of Vitamin Sea 🌊 😎!

Vitamin Sea helps me be me!πŸ˜€Nothing else like it for sure. If you cannot be near it 24/7, memories of being near the ocean adequately suffices πŸ˜‚. Here is a video of cruising near the coast of the Big Island 🏝 of Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/026Ud8YYfF4

That water is a perfect color of blue. It is so very inviting. There are times that I wish I can teleport to different parts of the world 🌎. Maybe this technology will exist one of these days but in the meantime, imagination will do.

This particular video was captured in the downtown area of the Big Island. Down in this area of town is where the Iron Man Competition is held. Competitors also train in this area of town. Pretty cool huh πŸ€”?

As you can see, this was a picture perfect day to be out and about. I was living out a childhood dream that I had so many years ago to set foot on the island of Hawaii. I was certainly not disappointed and I look forward to visiting more Hawaiian Islands as I continue my travels.

Dance Vibes for a TuesdayπŸ•ΊπŸΎπŸ’ƒ!

Nothing like a fun trip! 😊 If it contains dancing, you have a party πŸŽŠπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰. Here is a dance party for the ages – enjoy 😊: youtube.com/shorts/BZVkppOhrq4

This was one of the best times that I had on a cruise. The video above captures the dance party which was a part of the sail away celebration. I am assuming other cruise lines have pre-sail festivities also. It was a great send off to say the least. πŸ˜‚

In the video, it looks very weird to have so many people concentrated in one place. This was the way we use to interact on a cruise prior to the pandemic 😷. Hoping that these times come back soon.

Hope that you enjoy the video and happy sailing to you all in the future.
