Na Pali Sunset Cruise๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

There is nothing like sailing โ›ต๏ธ the Na Pali Coast๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I assure you that you have never seen views quite like these. When I have shared photos and videos from this location, I have instantly gotten feedback on the contrast between the beautiful blue waters and the magnificent mountains ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. It is absolutely one of the most beautiful sights in the world to see. If there was an 8th Wonder of the World ๐ŸŒŽ- the Na Pali Coast would be it ๐Ÿ˜‚! Don’t believe me – just watch: youtube.com/shorts/fK1NNx_rDVA

It is as advertised – as you can see for yourself โค๏ธโค๏ธ! I instantly fell in love with Kauai, and these views are why๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I did some research before going on the excursion but it did not adequately prepare me for the views that I saw on this day.

As beautiful as the video is, nothing beats seeing this for yourself ๐Ÿ˜! You will be astonished and amazed all at the same time ๐Ÿ˜‚. Might be even flabbergasted also! If I was heading back to Kauai soon, this would be the first excursion that I do. Anything this beautiful, is worth doing again and I plan to do exactly that๐Ÿ˜„!

Jamaica Me Crazy ๐Ÿ˜œ!

Jamaica is a beautiful slice of paradise ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! If you have not visited, do yourself a favor and visit. It is such a wonderful place to go. It almost does not matter which city that you visit. You can absolutely not go wrong with Montego Bay, Ocho Rios etc. Here is a look at what you can expect from visiting Negril, particularly, Negril Margaritaville: youtube.com/shorts/XzpO321IwnI

Can’t you imagine yourself sipping a margarita here? ๐Ÿ˜‚ I had so much fun there – I wish I was there now. Such a pristine beach bar experience. A magnificent place to dine and have loads of fun experiences. I would highly recommend stopping by this awesome place and by all means, have a margarita while you are there ๐Ÿ˜‚.

I love Negril – it will always hold a special place in my heart โค๏ธ. It turns out that there are seven beaches in this beautiful area of Jamaica ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ. I plan to visit every one of them when I go back there ๐Ÿ˜‚. On this trip – I visited Negril for the first time. It will not be the last time!

Hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will come back early and often to see other travel experiences!

Happy New Yearโ€™s Eve ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

2022 was such a phenomenal year in a lot of different ways๐Ÿ˜! As there are only a few hours left in 2022, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the year that was. It was an incredible travel year for me. It stands second to none to any other year . I have traveled to different parts of this world and seen so many beautiful people and things along the way๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Yet, I stood absolutely amazed to the spectacular views that I saw on this year. Here is just a sampling of what 2022 had to offer for me: youtube.com/shorts/_Kd6S93I0Us

Isn’t it absolutely amazing ๐Ÿคฉ? I was astonished by the beauty that I saw in both Kauai, Hawaii and Montego Bay, Jamaica. I had never visited Kauai before but I had heard so many great things๐Ÿ˜€. It was absolutely everything that I had heard and so much more.

Montego Bay was phenomenal also๐Ÿ˜! I had visited this beautiful island once before but I had never visited Negril. Negril was so gorgeous, particularly, Rick’s Cafe! If you have not been, by all means, go. You will have such a special time there and you will definitely want to come back to experience it again.

Here’s wishing you all the best for a headland prosperous New Year!

Carnival Cruise to Cozumel๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

All aboard to Cozumel ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! If you have not been, I would definitely recommend a trip. It is one of many beautiful islands in Mexico and one of the premier tourist destinations in the country. You will not be disappointed with what this beautiful island has to offer. You will be amazed by the number of things to see and do on this island ๐Ÿ๏ธ. If you choose to see the island via cruise, these are views that you will see once you leave the ship: youtube.com/shorts/0MJYBEQzaBY

I remember my heart beating with excitement and anticipation as the ship arrived at the Port of Cozumel. That is why (in the video linked above) there are so many ships all in the same place. It hey have docked there to unload passengers at the port. What you do not see in the video is the number of people that disembark from the numerous shops that are docked there.

That day was a perfect day to remember as I got the chance to visit Chankanaab, which provided a lot of fun and excitement while I was there in Cozumel. If you have followed this blog for some time, you have experienced the sights and sounds of Chankanaab and seen some of the things that it has to offer.

I am looking forward to more cruises in the near future and I encourage you to cruise also. It has been a great experience for me so far and I hope that it will be the same for you!

Carnival Cruise Vibes ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ!

Who doesn’t like a great cruise ? Especially if it is on a great cruise line like Carnival, Royal Caribbean etc. It took a while for me to go on my first cruise, but since that time – I am definitely hooked. This is a great reason why ๐Ÿ˜ƒ:youtube.com/shorts/GfxqGNtVvLQ

Each of the cruises that I have taken has taken me places that I have never been before. When you travel, you really get a chance to see how small your world is, compared to a much larger world that needs to be explored. I am beginning more and more to appreciate any of the adventures that I have been blessed to take because it has made me so much more well rounded.

Cruises are perhaps the best way, in my opinion, to travel. It seems expensive at first until you start adding in the other way to travel, which includes airfare, hotel, food etc. Cruise ships are all inclusive experiences – food, logging and even drinks (not alcohol but you can purchase a drink package) are included in the one price.

Cruise operators (Carnival etc.) also give you the ability to pay over time for your cruise experience. The particular cruise that the video references above was to the Western Caribbean. It was such a great experience – which you can see in the video. You are sure to leave amazed and enthusiastic about going on another experience!

Merry Christmas One and All๐Ÿ˜€!

Merry Christmas to everyone ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas ๐ŸŽ. There was a songwriter that coined the phrase that “Christmas just isn’t Christmas, without the one you love”โค๏ธHope you were able to spend the time with family and loved ones. Here is a video from a neighborhood that is definitely in the Christmas spirit:. youtube.com/shorts/FjSdWofmYu0

Hope you enjoyed the festive vibes. There is just something about the most wonderful time of the year๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Seems that people you meet during this time of the year are more friendlier and a whole lot nicer.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

With Christmas winding down and as we get closer to the end of the year, I am hoping that this holiday season brings you peace, love and joy ๐Ÿคฉ!

Sailing the Na Pali Coast๐Ÿ˜!

Sailing the Na Pali Coast was amazing ๐Ÿ˜! Could not believe the beautiful ocean and mountain views that I was able to see. You can only imagine how beautiful it would be to see an amazing view like this: youtube.com/shorts/DomiO6dmcm8

This view was so incredible, right there from aboard the catamaran. From traveling along with me (virtually), I try to capture every beautiful view that I see ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. As you can see from the video above, I really had my hands full ๐Ÿ˜‚. The Na Pali Sunset Cruise is one that you cannot miss when visiting the beautiful island of Kauai.

As I mentioned before, and it is definitely worth mentioning now, the Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise can be booked from the Trip Advisor website (TripAdvisor.com). They also have an app to make it even more convenient ๐Ÿ˜‚. It is my go to for traveling and I certainly recommend it to you also. I read the reviews before booking this excursion and people absolutely loved itโค๏ธ!

If you love views like the one captured in the above video, do yourself a favor and head to Kauai for a much needed vacation. You will be so glad that you did! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Carnival Cruise Vibes๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ!

Cruising is absolutely one of my favorite past times๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I absolutely enjoy being out on the water and taking in all of the spectacular views. If you have followed this blog for some time, you already know that I am a huge fan of cruising. As 2022 comes to a close and I look out on the horizon of 2023, I am hopeful to cruise, yet again, embarking on uncharted territory and experiencing new adventures ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. If you have never cruised before, here is a glimpse of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/TQ-LnBQ_Kvs

There is nothing like the feeling of being onboard a cruise ship! It is a feeling that cannot really be described but experienced๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Meeting new people and trying new cuisine are great but the amazing views of the ship cruising along the vast sea is just incredible. It is awesome being able to see the ocean for as far as the eye can see.

I know that this image can be scary at first but you get used to seeing it, after you have cruised for a while and it no longer bothers you. It is calming, much like watching a beautiful waterfall. I love the smooth vibrations of the cruise ship ๐Ÿšข sailing along the beautiful blue waters.

If you are currently planning to vacation in 2023, I would like to strongly recommend taking a cruise for the first time. You will be in awe ๐Ÿซข of what you will see and the memories that you will make๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Holiday Vibes at Kalahari ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Nothing like spending a well deserved vacation at Kalahari Resorts and Hotels ๐Ÿจ. If you have not visited this place, you will be in for an absolute treat๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I have blogged about it before but it is still definitely worth mentioning again. This is a place that you can visit to relax and get away from the frigid weather that many are needing at this time ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Here is a look at this beautiful indoor waterpark , that is destined to become a fixture to your vacation plans: youtube.com/shorts/WKdMEPU0VBE

As you can see in the video, it is good, clean fun for everyone๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I had a blast there and it was just so incredibly awesome to have it climate controlled, so that you are not too hot ๐Ÿฅต. Many waterparks that I have visited within the summer, become unbearable at times because the temperatures are in the 90s and you have to reapply sunscreen (almost on a few hours basis) to not get sunburned.

For this reason alone, it is well worth a trip to a Kalahari Resort near you, just to experience it for yourself. You will be amazed by the spectacular views of the resorts and the vast amenities that they have to offer. It is fun for every member of your family and you will experience countless hours of fun while enjoying the waterpark, in addition to experiencing the ginormous arcade (TomFoolery) while you are there.

Believe me, it is absolutely a place that you cannot miss. You will enjoy all there is to offer there and get the rest and relaxation that all of us need.

Jamaican Pool Workout ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

If you love working out as much as I do, you will indeed love this pool workout that I captured ๐Ÿ˜ƒ: youtube.com/shorts/AyoBVnPCOWI

Wouldn’t you love to hang out here also? What an amazing resort the Hilton Rose Hall is. This was the second time that I had the opportunity to stay at this magnificent place. If you are looking for a place to hang out during your stay in Montego Bay, look no further than this outstanding resort! It looks like paradise as you can see in the video.

On this particular day, it was bittersweet, because after a few fun filled days there, it was unfortunately time to go ๐Ÿ˜ข. If you have followed this blog for a while, you have seen the spectacular views that Jamaica has to offer.

This is a perfect time to visit Jamaica because the weather is so cold ๐Ÿฅถ now. Jamaica is one of the best keep secrets for snow birds ๐Ÿฆ in the winter. It is one of the least expensive options, which makes it high on my list! If rest and relaxation is high in your list, Jamaica is the place to go.
