All aboard to the Na Pali Coast๐Ÿ›ณ๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

If you have never been to the Na Pali Coast, you are in for a treat ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! After cruising for some time, this was one of the best views that I have ever seen. If you have looked at other posts that I have included in my blog, you will be amazed at those views, in addition to this one:. youtube.com/shorts/Z6MajNM4-Ys

Just imagine seeing this view, up close and personal. It was truly breathtaking, to say the least๐Ÿ˜Š. As I have shared before on this blog, if you are interested in this cruise ๐Ÿšข, feel free to book this cruise through Trip Advisor. It is called the “Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise”. I highly recommend booking this cruise, should your travel plans take you to Kauai, Hawaii.

The cruise is taken onboard a catamaran, which happened to be the first time that I was onboard one. I have seen many on television but this expedition was my first experience. Having had most of my experience onboard Carnival Cruises, I was a little hesitant regarding this cruise – since it was a much smaller ship.

Turns out, my fears were totally unfounded ๐Ÿ˜‚! It was such a smooth ride and I enjoyed the whole experience. Hope that you will make your plans to book the Na Pali Sunset Cruise in the foreseeable future!

Happy Earth Day ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Happy Earth Day to one and all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Hope that you enjoyed Earth Day and that you commit to doing something that helps our world to be a better place to live in. Only one Earth ๐ŸŒ so we have to take care of it. Speaking of the Earth, I have a special video using one of our planet’s elements, fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ. If you have never seen a fire show before, please take a look at this beautiful one: youtube.com/shorts/Ztgo9iUJBx8

Hope that you enjoyed it and also hope that you will have an opportunity to see one in person. It is certainly a sight to see for sure. I got an opportunity to see this gem at a hotel that I was staying in while visiting Kauai. I did not know what to expect but I can truly say that this exceeded my expectations.

The dancers were so extremely talented – to be as skilled as they were with all of the fire that they were handling was just superb! I hope that you enjoy the video and that you had an amazing Earth Day on yesterday and that you are having a wonderful weekend!

Na Pali Sea Adventures๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ƒโ›ต๏ธโ›ต๏ธ!

The sea helps me be me ๐Ÿ˜‚! Cruising is quickly becoming a favorite past time for me. Once I return from a cruise, wherever it is, I soon make plans to embark on another adventure ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I spent the majority of my life not really cruising at all. It is really within the past 4 years that I have really started taking cruises. If you have followed this blog for a while, you know that there was a period of time that I questioned whether or not cruising could be fun. Which means that even if you have not taken cruises in the past, there are present and future opportunities to give it a try๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Admittedly, most of my cruise experiences have taken place aboard a Carnival Cruise ๐Ÿšข. So when I recently visited Kauai, I was not sure of what to expect onboard the Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise. I had never been on a catamaran before, so I was not sure what the experience would be like. Wow, was I amazed from this experience! I have captured some of it here (hang on ๐Ÿ˜‚): youtube.com/shorts/Zn4zhPoex0A

Isn’t that just incredible? The catamaran was a little slippery so I had to make sure to balance myself while capturing these spectacular views. Views like these are why travel makes you speechless and a storyteller all at the same time. It was almost like an out of body experience ๐Ÿ˜‚- could not believe my own eyes ๐Ÿ‘€.

If you are looking for a wonderful trip just to get away from it all, this is the place to visit. I would go back here in a heartbeat ๐Ÿ’“. I had so much fun on the cruise and on the island ๐Ÿ as a whole. You will absolutely love the fun and the experiences that this beautiful location has to offer! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Whale Watching Adventures ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒบ!

Every once in a while, you get to experience things that you have never seen or done before in your life. I remember my first flight ever, my first international flight, my first job etc. One of the things that I love about travel is that for the most part, it is an opportunity for these type of things to happen. There is a whole world out there that most of us have only seen a fraction of but we are aspiring to see much more.

Ladies, gentlemen and kids – I was completely blown away from having my first whale watching experience. I sat there with my mouth open while within a few yards or so, there were whales frolicking about in the water ๐Ÿ˜‚! Thankfully, I captured this experience on my camera and here it is: youtube.com/shorts/3qHo8PXBQx8

Did you see that huge tail ๐Ÿ˜ณ? I was astounded ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and could not believe my own eyes ๐Ÿ‘€. This is totally stuff that you see on tv, but surely not with your own eyes ๐Ÿ‘€? Yes, I got to see with my own eyes these colossal creatures. If there is an experience that tops that, I have yet to see it.๐Ÿ˜Š

This expedition was part of the Na Pali Sunset Cruise excursion located in Kauai, Hawaii. If you are ever interested in booking this tour, please do so on Trip Advisor. As you cruise, you will experience wonderful sights (like these) and sounds that will take your breath away!๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Hula ๐ŸŒบVibes for Good Friday!

Happy Good Friday to one and all๐Ÿ˜ƒ! What a great Friday to be alive and what a wonderful end to another week. If you have ever visited a luau or even if you have not, you are sure to enjoy this video: youtube.com/shorts/L-s-neTrA-E

Hope that you liked this video! ๐Ÿ˜€ It was so amazing to be able to see this live and in person. The dancers were just so very talented. The great thing about visiting the beautiful island of Kauai is that they have luaus and fire shows virtually everywhere, especially since Covid restrictions are starting to get more relaxed ๐Ÿ˜Ž.

On this particular day, I was visiting the Coconut Marketplace in East Kauai, when I heard some beautiful music and I saw a crowd of people congregating around a stage in the center of the marketplace. Since I am very curious, I thought that I would follow the music ๐ŸŽถ. In doing so, I found these beautiful hula dancers and singers.

The music was so very beautiful ๐Ÿคฉ and of course the dancing was top notch also!๐Ÿ˜ƒ It was honestly just great to be outside and around other people again – mask free๐Ÿ˜ƒ! From visiting the island ๐Ÿ, I developed more of an appreciation for the people, food and the beautiful culture!

Feel free to visit this blog, early and often for more travel adventures! Looking forward to more and more travel days ahead.

Fun at Sea – Sail Away Vibes๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Nothing quite like a party ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน๐Ÿ”ฅ! Amazing how having fun ๐Ÿคฉ never goes out of style ๐Ÿ˜‚. If anything, we want more and more opportunities to be able to enjoy and to celebrate ๐ŸŽ‰. Truth is, that we spend so much time doing life that we rarely stop to smell the roses ๐ŸŒน and appreciate the life that we are living. I found a quote today that says, “Never be so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”.

Indeed, life has so much more to offer than the regular mundane life of making a living, paying bills, repeat. There has to be fun found somewhere in the equation of life. Going out and seeing the rest of the world is one way to incorporate fun but just lounging on the patio, meeting with friends for dinner, having a fun weekend etc. allows the mind and body to recharge. Here is an excellent fun time that I just shared to YouTube – I hope that you enjoy: youtube.com/shorts/bsxFUjqJ9sc

Fun times indeed – I still remember it like it was yesterday๐Ÿ˜ƒ! We had so much fun on that day that I did not want it to stop ๐Ÿ˜‚. Alas, it had to and we were on our way to Costa Maya! On this cruise, we would not only visit Costa Maya but Belize and Cozumel as well.

Hope that you enjoy the video and most importantly, stop ๐Ÿ›‘ to smell the roses ๐ŸŒน that you earned and deserve๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Sailing the Seas of Paradise โ›ต๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ

Paradise has absolutely never looked better than the shores of Kauai!! If you have followed this blog for some time, you have seen the recent videos that I have taken from aboard the Na Pali Sunset Cruise ๐Ÿšข. After many travels, there are few things that gets you excited and amazed all at once. There are also few things that make you in awe of what you are seeing. Well, ladies in gentlemen, this video and others taken that day, left me speechless ๐Ÿ˜ถ and that is totally hard to do: youtube.com/shorts/1bIHv8-NN8g

Would have loved to be able to explore that coast just a little bit more. I was impressed seeing the beautiful mountains and the seas. Felt as if I was having an out of body experience. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I would recommend taking this tour for anyone looking to have some fun on vacation in a very safe environment. Safety protocols were followed every step of the way and everyone went home safely after the cruise was over.

Cruising has always been a favorite past time for me. I was glad to have added this location to my list and I am looking forward to adding additional locations as I continue to travel. It goes totally without saying that this has been the best experience so far.

Hope that you are enjoying this blog and the beautiful videos that I am sharing. I look forward to sharing more in the near future ๐Ÿ˜€!

Waterfall Chaser ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ

Who doesn’t like chasing waterfalls? Until I visited Hawaii recently, I did not know how much I would love โค๏ธ chasing waterfalls๐Ÿ˜ƒ! They are so majestic and the sounds are so relaxing ๐Ÿ˜Ž. Waterfalls are absolutely one of the beautiful wonders of nature. Getting outside and chasing waterfalls really gives me a rush. Here is a beautiful video of Akaka Falls, located in the the Akaka Falls State Park: youtube.com/shorts/0dVk-xZ_t-k

I hope that you enjoyed the video๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I am hoping that you enjoy it enough that you are considering even going to see it for yourself๐Ÿ™Œ. Once you visit one, you cannot wait to go visit another. As I captured this video, my mouth was wide open the entire time, ๐Ÿ˜ณ in total disbelief of what I was seeing.

Imagine observing a giant that is standing in front of you. It is thousands of feet tall and just massive๐Ÿ˜€. You feel like an ant ๐Ÿœ compared to the size of the giant. That is pretty much how you feel in the presence of one of these awesome wonders. It also makes you realize that there are beautiful things in this world ๐ŸŒŽ that leaves you speechless at the time and makes you a storyteller from then on. I look forward to seeing more things as I cover the earth ๐ŸŒ before it covers me.

Please follow this blog for more adventures๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I love to travel and share unbelievable content with everyone. Who knows, maybe sometime along the way, I will encourage you all to work, vacation and repeat also ๐Ÿ™Œ

Living My Best Life๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒบโ›ต๏ธโ›ต๏ธ!

Living my best life is always the goal ! Traveling to exciting places and seeing a whole new world ๐ŸŒŽ, makes living life worthwhile ๐Ÿ˜€. After visiting one location, I look forward to visiting another, soon thereafter! Here is just a glimpse of the fun that I had: youtube.com/shorts/tU3-ynUbwjY

As you can tell, these families were having a total blast ๐Ÿ’ฅ! I was enjoying all of the whale ๐Ÿณ and dolphin ๐Ÿฌ watching. This was a cruise of a lifetime. I have never been on a more exciting cruise ๐Ÿšข in my life.

This is the first time I had been on a whale and dolphin watching cruise. It was just totally amazing ๐Ÿคฉ! I have been on many cruises before (check out my blog to see more) ๐Ÿ˜‚, but this cruise ๐Ÿšข was absolutely superb.

Kauai can be characterized as just superb also ๐Ÿ˜€. Trust me, if you visit this beautiful location, you will not want to go home ๐Ÿ˜‚. I wanted to become a resident after visiting for less than a week. It is such an easy going place, the main highway has a speed limit of 25 miles per hour ๐Ÿ˜‚. Cannot get any more easy going than that!

Living on the Edge๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒด!

Living on the edge has never felt better ๐Ÿ˜€! Taking a trip to an unbelievable place is definitely rewarding and provides a respite from normal life. I have attached a link to a video that was captured from onboard a catamaran as the crew and I are sailing โ›ต๏ธ along the coast of Kauai: youtube.com/shorts/hfCorsdWvIk

It just so happened to be a beautiful day and a spectacular one for sailing โ›ต๏ธ. Even during an almost 6 hour tour, it just did not seem long enough. Just wanted to experience more whale ๐Ÿณ and dolphin ๐Ÿฌ watching, in addition to taking in more views and vibes of the ocean and mountains from the boat ๐Ÿ›ฅ tour.

It has been said that you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. There is lot of truth in that statement. You only get one chance at life without the ability to do it over again. Vacation always reminds me of the importance of stopping to smell the roses ๐ŸŒน, as you walk the path of life.

Attempting to get to the edge of the catamaran was tricky, because all of the water made the deck slippery. Thankfully ๐Ÿ˜… I did not get dangerously close to the edge to capture the views. My goal on vacation, is to make sure that all the fun ๐Ÿคฉ is accomplished without the danger โ›”๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚. Arrive alive and leave better than you came!

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will plan to vacation here or somewhere else this year. Especially with things looking a whole lot better on the travel front from a Covid 19 perspective ๐Ÿ˜€! Happy sails and trails ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘‹!
