Spectacular Luau Views๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ!

Luau vibes are excellent๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I made up in my mind that if given the opportunity to go back to Hawaii, that I would visit a luau. Ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly what I did. Here is just a glimpse of what was in store during this visit: youtube.com/shorts/rv6cMP7xIpU

Pretty cool video, huh ๐Ÿค”? I loved everything about these amazing vibes. I remember thoroughly enjoying the wonderful show. It greatly exceeded my expectations in so many different ways. I definitely encourage others to share in this experience at least one time. You will enjoy every minute of it for sure.

This video shows the beauty of the experience! Well choreographed and so very entertaining. The video was taken at the Smith Family Luau in Kauai, Hawaii. This experience can be booked directly from Trip Advisor. Trip Advisor is definitely one of my favorite websites to visit as I prepare for upcoming trips. You can find out all the popular activities to partake in as you travel to various destinations.

Hope you enjoy the video and that you plan to visit Hawaii some time on the near future. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธ- Omg ๐Ÿ˜†!

Cabo San Lucas is an absolutely gorgeous place๐Ÿ˜! I cannot wait to go back one of these days. The views are totally next level and it will leave a wonderful impression upon you. Although I have sailed various places around the world ๐ŸŒŽ, this particular expedition provided one of the most magnificent views that I have ever seen. Here is just a glimpse of the views that I saw on this incredible voyage: youtube.com/shorts/Bk-xbozIONE

The rock structure that you saw in the video is called, Neptune’s Finger. If it looks amazing on the video, it looks even more amazing in person ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I could not believe that we got as close as we did to it. It is one of the more iconic structures that you will see, sailing the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

On this voyage, I also got a chance to see the magnificent, Arc of Cabo San Lucas. That video is located on this blog, just in case you are interested in viewing it. I was completely awestruck looking at that magnificent structure. The water was particularly rough during that part of the tour, so that video has a flair of excitement and adventure.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you are enjoying a great weekend. Check back early and often for more travel adventures!

Waterfall Vibes ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

I am a waterfall chaser!๐Ÿ˜Š Love to capture them wherever I go. I have been blessed to travel to a number of places that have waterfalls and I have not been disappointed โ˜น๏ธ. Here is Wailua Falls – which is located in Kauai, Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/33WAcdYzaF4

Hope that you enjoyed the beautiful video๐Ÿ˜Š! Waterfalls are amazing wonders of nature. You stand awestruck when you see them and want to take as many pictures as possible ๐Ÿ˜‚. Thankfully on this recent trip, I was able to capture this one in addition to Opaeka Falls which you will see on a future post.

On this particular day, it was almost as if everybody from Kauai converged on this area at the same time. The small road to see this wonder was completely packed with tourists. I was aboard a tour bus so we thankfully were able to park in one of the few parking spots reserved for tour buses.

As the video pans out from the waterfall to the water below, you will see a small beach ๐Ÿ– area where a few people were hanging out. Turns out that these folks found a trail to hike down in order to get to that area. Since that activity was not a part of the tour experience, I stayed on the lookout road.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will check back for other travel blog experiences, as I continue to cover the earth ๐ŸŒ before it covers me ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Carnival Cruise Vibes๐Ÿšข- Happy Friday๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ!

Carnival Cruise Line just has a way of making dreams come true. I have sailed them in the past and I always have been impressed with their commitment to customer service. I have always felt as if I was getting the best experience offered and consequently, I have enjoyed my experience cruising. Here is only a sample of what you can expect, when you choose fun ๐Ÿคฉ: youtube.com/shorts/SfvmvgTTTnY

When all is said and done, I would like to have cruised on not only Carnival, but also Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess etc. I guess you can say that I am a cruise addict. I must admit that I totally am ๐Ÿ˜‚. Admitting it is definitely a great first step ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Sure, taking an airplane to various destinations would get you there quicker but for so many times in life, it is more about the journey than the destination. The journey provides so many memories that will stay etched in your mind for years to come.

This particular video was taken while I was standing out on the Lido Deck, looking at the beautiful water ๐Ÿ’ฆ. I could remember this moment now as if it was yesterday. I did not have any idea at that time, of the many adventures that would take place in the upcoming days of my journey to the Western Caribbean. Feel free to check out this blog for adventures in Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel๐Ÿ˜ƒโค๏ธ!

Message in a Bottle Vibes๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ”

Sailing is one of my favorite past times. ๐Ÿ˜ŠOnce I retire one of these days, I look forward to life cruising around the world ๐ŸŒŽ as I venture on even more vacations. In the meantime, I plan to work, travel and repeat as many times as possible ๐Ÿ˜‚. Here is a short video from a recent sailing adventure – hold on tight ๐Ÿ˜Š: youtube.com/shorts/UMqwheP8gXc

I was trying very hard to keep my balance in this video. The deck was slippery as the boat increased its speed. Thankfully, no one was injured in the making of this video and I was able to successfully capture the video while keeping my balance at the same time ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘!

I look back at this memory with much joy. I viewed so many pictures on Trip Advisor (which is where I booked this excursion) and assumed that the pictures captured everything that I would see on my adventure. Boy was I wrong ๐Ÿ˜‚. As with any great experience, you have to be there to really get the most out of it.

I saw incredible views (some of which, are captured in this blog) that were just breathtaking. I learned while I was there that people relocate in high numbers when they vacation in Kauai. I have a better understanding why that is the case now. You absolutely fall in love with the weather, the gorgeous views and the easy going lifestyle. The Kauai experience is truly to die for ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

May the 4th Be With You๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

May the fourth be with you on Star Wars Day๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Hope you are enjoying the day. Growing up as a young kid, I was an avid Star Wars fan! I used to have so many life saber battles with so many of my friends. Of course, we didn’t have actual life sabers but used to use wooden sticks instead ๐Ÿ˜‚! Those were the days for sure.

One of the best life experiences that I had was visiting NASA. I visited Cape Canaveral once and Johnson Space Center once. Here is a quick video from the Astronaut’s Gallery at Johnson Space Center: youtube.com/shorts/yQB93Xh0PZ8

Isn’t it just amazing? I love the starship vibes ๐Ÿ˜! NASA is by far the next best thing to going to space itself. Of course, Blue Origin and SpaceX is making space travel more within reach for everyone. As years go by, space travel will become more and more affordable.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will visit this blog early and often for more travel adventures ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Nature Views from Kauai ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Smith’s Grotto is definitely a must see ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! ! It is a wonderful place to visit during any Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ adventure. This tour was absolutely one for the ages: youtube.com/shorts/28c-agNN3Qw

Hawaii, as you have seen from the videos that have been posted, is an absolute dream. On the video above, we are on a nature journey to see the infamous Smith Grotto!๐Ÿ˜ƒ Could not believe the absolute beautiful views that I was able to capture on the journey there.

In a later post on this blog, I will ensure that I post video exclusively from the Smith Grotto location. It is an absolute thing of beauty! I was so surprised to find out that so many people get married there!

Hope that you enjoyed the video above โค๏ธ! It was such a joy to visit this place and I am glad to be able to share it with everyone.

Cruising is Fun ๐Ÿคฉ!

Cruising is fun especially when you are on a magnificent vacation of your dreams ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I am an avid cruiser and I love being out on the deep blue sea. Nothing quite beats being out on the deep blue sea with the wind blowing in your face. Here is a short clip of me having fun: youtube.com/shorts/1DUxPEV8eU0

Keeping my balance was the goal here and thankfully ๐Ÿ˜… I succeeded ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was a little on the slippery side and of course, the boat was moving pretty fast ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Mission accomplished and the picture captures the wonderful excitement that I was feeling at the time.

The wonderful things about visiting the Napali Coast is observing the beautiful ocean and the gorgeous mountains. You travel for views like these and you are rewarded accordingly ๐Ÿ˜‚. There is just something so very peaceful about cruising that makes you forget about the rest of the world ๐ŸŒŽ.

Out there, everything feels right even if in reality, it is not.๐Ÿ˜ƒ Travel affords you the opportunity to take a break from the regular and mundaneness that we often experience during the course of life. We could all use a break from time to time. The key to taking a vacation is to plan for a vacation! My planning usually takes place months in advance in order to get the cheapest price available. I definitely encourage everyone to do the same!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Weekend Hula Vibes๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ!

Hula Vibes are the best vibes. I got a chance to see this up close and personal at the Smith Family Luau in Kauai Hawaii๐Ÿ˜ƒ! This trip represented the first time that I had heard ever experienced the Luau experience and I loved it ๐Ÿ˜. Here is just a glimpse of what I saw during this very entertaining show: youtube.com/shorts/4VCXpbPVXKU

Hula Dancing is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ culture. So much so, that you could have the Luau experience at your hotel or at a different location (like this one) almost anywhere on the island. You literally have your pick of venues. Before visiting Hawaii, I was told by a friend of mine that you have to have the Luau experience at least once. I am certainly glad that I did!

It felt so very good to have checked this experience off the bucket list. When I first visited Hawaii on last year, mostly all of the Luaus were closed due to Covid. Since things are opening up, the Luaus are as well.

Hope that you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed seeing it๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Bad Guy Vibes-Hawaii Style๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Nothing like a great performance๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Especially when it involves fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ. I did not know that I was a fan of fire shows until I saw my first fire show in Hawaii. If you have never been to one of these shows, do yourself a favor and sign up for one. I was very fortunate to have this performance at the hotel that I was staying in. Here is just a glimpse of that performance: youtube.com/shorts/E3U5e_Lz6Es

This guy is just talented๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I shudder to think how many times he might have gotten burned doing this ๐Ÿ˜‚ but he has perfected his trade ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. The name of the fire show is called the Ahi Uila Fire Show and it can be booked from the Hilton Garden Inn in Kauai. Hawaii.

I really had an awesome time๐Ÿ˜ƒ. This was so much of a great, rich experience ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Turns out that these type of shows are a part of the luau experience and is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ culture.

If you would like to see more of this phenomenal fire show, I have additional blog posts and videos that I have recently posted. If you enjoy this one, you will surely enjoy the other blog posts as well.
