Sky Above, Earth 🌍 Beneath!😁

Sky views are the absolute best viewsπŸ˜„! Here is one of those spectacular views that I captured from 30,000 feet on a recent trip: youtube.com/shorts/tJbGiDpVLlo

I happened to look out the window, as I was preparing to land, and saw this excellent view. Could not help but capture it. My only regret is that I did not capture more of it πŸ˜‚. It is one of the best sky views that I have ever captured.

My love of the window seat on a plane, centers around looking at all of the beauty that you only see when you are flying✈️. No other way to observe the beauty of the earth from such a high altitude 🌍 except by flying the friendly skies!

Down through the years, I have observed snow capped mountains, bodies of water, hills and valleys etc. all from the window seat of the plane. I have learned, after not traveling much last year, that I should not take these views for granted.

Hopefully as you travel, you will observe the beauty of the earth a little bit more as you fly the friendly skies πŸ˜„πŸ™Œ

Incredible Kalahari ViewsπŸ˜ƒ!

The view from here is just incredible: youtube.com/shorts/9haZjgfDI_Y

Looking out from my balcony window provided some much needed relaxation to my otherwise stressful week. We get away to relax and cast off the cares of the world. Kalahari, from this balcony view, and from all of the indoor water park rides, provided a welcomed respite.πŸ˜†

If you have followed this blog, you have seen a myriad of various places that I have discovered from my travels across the world. This particular place is found right here in the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, in small town Texas, by the name of Round Rock. I think that the only reason that I have heard of it, is that I live here in the state. πŸ˜‚ Otherwise, I might not have visited the city at all.

There are Kalahari Resorts in other states. so I encourage you to visit should your travel plans allow it. This was my first time visiting the resort but certainly won’t be my last. I enjoyed every last bit of the time that I had there. It is a fairly new resort, having opened in November 2020, but by the looks of the crowd when I visited, the secret was out. It was packed – to my surprise!

Hope that you enjoy the video above. If you like the content, I encourage you to follow my blog to see more of the same!

Fun at Laguna Cozumel πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ

Happy New Week to you😎. The weekend never seems to be long enough πŸ˜‚ Travel always take you away from the regular, ordinary and the mundane πŸ‘. Should your travel plans take you to Cozumel, I highly suggest visiting the Chankanaab Beach πŸ– Park. One of the beauties that this park has to offer is the Laguna Cozumel, which as you can see from the video, is just amazing : youtube.com/shorts/bnKHeJafaik

You can take a wonderful walk around this Laguna and feel as as if you have discovered paradise. Cannot beat the beautiful views that this Laguna contains. You may ask the question, “is swimming allowed?”. Well, it is not allowed, there are a number of beaches that are located in Chankanaab where you could swim, snorkel etc.

In order to do all of the activities included at this park, you really need about 2 days. There is so much to do and so little time to do it. Once you are there, time does not seem to stand still. On the contrary, it goes by so fast. There is a Dolphin Discovery, sea lion show. several beaches, tequila tasting, great restaurants, shopping etc. Almost too good to be true.

As you can see from the video above, it is just phenomenal. This was an excursion that I booked on my Carnival Cruise voyage to the Western Caribbean. With cruises, you only have a few hours on land before it is time to resume the sea voyage. I am glad that I was able to make this time count!

Caption This Beauty 🀩

Vitamin Sea helps me be meπŸ˜ƒ! There is truly nothing better than being out on the water, sailing to various destinations. Oh the places that you will go, if you venture out on a voyage. One of those voyages took place out on the Sea of Cortez sailing to the Window to the Pacific. I have captured part of that magnificent voyage here: youtube.com/shorts/1EwxDd_2n5c

You may ask the question, what is the Window to the Pacific? Well, as the name implies, it is in fact an archway from the Sea of Cortez to the Pacific Ocean. Pretty cool, huh πŸ€”?

I hope that you enjoy this video. It was such a cool experience – I would love to do it again. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ŒπŸ˜ƒ

Talking to the Moon🌝!

How I love to visit NASA!πŸ˜ƒSuch a great place to go and explore. Maybe it is just my fascination with all things space. I would love to be able to visit space one of these days. Looks like that is starting to happen these days, with different SpaceX missions. In the meantime, I took a NASA visit to the moon and it is captured here: youtube.com/shorts/kFC8nYzFeZ8

I guess my first love for all things space started with the movie E.T. and with the Star Wars movies. Both really peaked my interest in space, in addition to the different space launch missions from NASA. Visiting Cape Canaveral as a kid really put my love for space over the top!πŸ˜ƒ

The above video was taken at the NASA Johnson Space Center located in Houston, Texas. If you have ever heard of the saying, “Houston, we have a problem” – the person that said it, said it at the Johnson Space Center. Fun factπŸ˜ƒ!

This moon exhibit was located in an area that is called the Astronaut Gallery. There you can take cool pictures and videos of the moon, in addition to touring a space shuttle. There are so many other activities that make for a long and enjoyable day. I definitely recommend visiting this wonderful place especially if you are a lover of all things space l, like I am!

Volcano πŸŒ‹ Vent – Stand Back!

Coming in hot on a a Monday! Hope that you have a wonderful week. Wanted to take the time to share a cool experience that I had viewing a volcano vent for the first time outside of Mount Kilauea😊. If you would like to see more, please check out the video: youtube.com/shorts/gtO1DzPQElE

As you can see from the video, the steam form the volcano is coming in very hot πŸ₯΅ so you most definitely have to stand back! What you may or may not be able to tell from the video is that it is so very cold around the volcano. That is why we are dressed like we are with hoodies, jackets etc.

It is hard to believe that you can experience cold in Hawaii, but surprisingly you can. The Big Island of Hawaii, in addition to the beautiful beaches and warm weather, also has mountains and higher elevations which contributes to the colder weather. When you visit Hawaii, expect to pack shorts and also jackets and hoodies 😊. This is totally based upon the type of experience you are looking to have.

I like to take it all in, so I pack for the beach and for visiting the mountains and volcanoes. You only live once, so why not πŸ˜‚. Makes for a lifetime of memories that you can share which makes your experience so much richer.

Yay for Water Park Vibes!

Look no further for fun WaterPark Vibes than right here: youtube.com/shorts/KsZKsog4pIU

What a wonderful mixture of fun, water and skiing and it is made for kids and adults alike😊! I love this wonderful invention. I certainly had fun riding on it and seeing others do the same.

It is probably not hard to believe that this particular ride had the longest line on that day. With all of my waterpark and amusement park experience, I had never experienced a thrill rush like the one that was had on this ride.

Hope that you enjoy this video and look for other similar videos in the future!

Kalahari Water Park Fun 🀩!

As summer starts to wind down, water park adventures are starting to ramp up! Here is a link to a recent adventure that I went on: youtube.com/shorts/NSHfC8KaXqY

Visiting Kalahari Resort and indoor Water Park was such a wonderful experience! Hard to believe that it opened up in Round Rock, Texas in November 2020. It is most definitely a sight to see. First indoor waterpark experience that I have ever had. What a great way to beat the 90+ degree Texas heatπŸ˜ŠπŸ™Œ. Did I mention that there are plenty of restaurants onsite (12) and that the food is just delicious? Not to mention the huge indoor arcade that will take you breath away!

Check for a Kalahari Resort near you. You will enjoy a great experience and will make memories that will last a life time.

Summer is coming: Weekend Vibes from the Beach πŸ– 😎

Summer is definitely coming so make sure to check out the video just posted on my channel: youtube.com/shorts/tgSJdAmsypk

Summer is definitely coming closer with each passing day. We are almost halfway in the year which is unbelievable. This trip was one that I will always remember since it was the first to the black sand beach of Punalu’u. As you might have seen in the the previous posts, it is such a beautiful beach πŸ– .

Definitely a must see if you love the beaches and the ocean. This particular day was cloudy and overcast but we still had a lot of fun nonetheless. Hawaii is definitely open for tourists so as you make your summer plans this may be a location that you might want to consider in the very near future.
