Morning Views from Above🀩

I love waking up to early morning views. If I am traveling, I prefer to wake up to ocean and nature views. Here is a beautiful nature view that I captured from a recent visit to a resort: youtube.com/shorts/sb0V2qhjEQw

It is absolutely “just like πŸ”₯”😊! I love magnificent views such as these. I must admit, the well manicured golf ⛳️ greens add an extra touch to this great view. I feel that these types of views, help to get you ready for the day ahead. The peace within that you feel, makes you so glad that you took the time to travel.

Traveling opens your eyes to the beautiful world 🌎 in which we live. Of course with the omicron variant running rampant, there seem to be more cancellations than flights. Hopefully things will go back to normal sometime soon which will enable us to get on with the business of travel.

Views like the one that I captured above, makes the whole travel experience worthwhile. It is certainly time well spent, in the chaotic, ever changing world that we live in.

Beautiful DestinationπŸ˜ŽπŸŒ΄πŸ˜ƒ!

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations! This was certainly the case going through all of the travel restrictions in 2020 and waiting for that next travel adventure. Thankfully, it was Hawaii, one of the most beautiful destinations in the world 🌎. While riding as a passenger, I captured this incredible stroll along the coastline in downtown Kona, Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/86mIOxgIlWE

If only I can see views like these every day πŸ˜‚! These are views that you cannot wait to see when you get there and views you cannot wait to share once you have left. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the reason why you travel πŸ˜ƒ. There are so many places to see and just so little time to see them.

This particular stroll was part of a sight seeing tour that I booked while vacationing there in Kona. This tour took you through downtown Kona, to a coffee farm (Kona has the best coffee), to a hometown bakery, a black sand beach (I have videos on my blog) and lastly the tour took us to the only active volcano on the Hawaiian Islands, Mount Kilauea.

If all that was not enough, the tour provided lunch and dinner. Pretty impressive huh πŸ€”? I thought so and would happily do this tour again to soak in more of the spectacular views. I highly recommend doing this tour to see all there is to Kona.

The island is truly remarkable and it has made me even more of a fan of Hawaii. Truly in a class by itself for vacations!

New Years Vibes: Best WishesπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜Ž!

Happy 2022 to all of youπŸ˜€! Wishing you all a safe and prosperous New Year. Thanks for following my blog and for the comments that I have received in 2021. I am certainly ready for more and more travel adventures in 2022 and I hope that you are as well. I have composed a recap of my Kalahari Resorts visit and I would like to share it with you: youtube.com/shorts/0bXFikwSCkI

Hope that you enjoyed the video. Kalahari, both the beautiful resort and the indoor water park, greatly exceeded my expectations!πŸ˜ƒ If you have never been, hopefully you will take a trip in this new year. The one that I visited, opened up in November 2020 and it is located in Round Rock, Texas. There are other locations here in the USA so there should be one near where you live.

Did I mentioned that it is indoors πŸ˜‚? Which means that you can experience the whole water park experience in the climate control confines of the indoors, no matter what the weather may be outdoors. Perfect escape from the frigid cold weather that you may be experiencing in other parts of the USA or otherwise.

Wishing you and your families all the best that this New Year has to offer and I encourage each of you to work, vacation and repeat as often as you can this year!πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

Christmas Vibes πŸŽ…πŸŽ…πŸŽ„πŸŽ„

Christmas is almost here! Just around the corner now- it is hard to believe 😊. This video brings out all of the Christmas feels: youtube.com/shorts/qUObs_d3HjA

I love this time of the year, it is a time for giving and receiving❀️. As you walk around, the Christmas feeling is everywhere. I have seen more smiles than I have seen the entire year πŸ˜‚. Despite all that we all have been through, we set it aside and get ready to enjoy the holidays.

Absolutely the most wonderful time of the year and the most anticipated. I am enjoying the holidays already, spending time with family and friends. We are doing so in a safe and effective manner and definitely encourage others to do so.

Hope that you all are enjoying the holiday away and that you enjoy the video.

Skipping to the Good Part 😻😻!

Can we skip to the good part?: youtube.com/shorts/qcOewJc0ZNc

This was absolutely the good part for me. Cannot beat these views. Such a beautiful fountain on a beautiful campus in Texas! Hope that you enjoy the video.

As I was walking around, taking in the views, I was just amazed. It is always great to get outside and take in your surroundings. So many things can be missed and they are right under your nose.

The great thing about travel is that you can take in sights not only around the world but also right around the corner. It always helps when the weather is beautiful as it is in the video.

Have a great day and stay safe πŸ˜€!

Countdown to Christmas πŸŽ…!

The most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us 😊! Hard to believe that Christmas is getting closer. I am hoping that you all are enjoying Christmas Week. Wanted to share some great Christmas views that I captured while strolling around the neighborhood: youtube.com/shorts/fIIHDSJ6yNY

These decorations are truly next level! The beautiful attention to detail, clearly stands out for me. I have seen many decorations before but these are truly superb.

Christmas time just makes everyone happier. There are certainly some things to not be happy about: when you think of love ones that have passed away, omicron and delta variants etc. Universally, this is a time in which people are in a loving, giving and receiving mood all at once.

We also tend to take more days for vacations, which is the reason that these type of travel blogs provide insights into different places to go, what to do and where to stay. The Christmas spirit is alive and well which is why oftentimes it is the most anticipated time of the year.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you will check back early and often for future posts! Have a great dayπŸ˜€

Sailing the Cabo Sea 🚀 🌊

If you have never gone sailing before, it is such a wonderful experience. Before sailing ⛡️, I would avoid it because I figured that I would get sea sick πŸ€’. Here is a voyage that I took along the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas: youtube.com/shorts/JgOcPplWsH4

Prior to this voyage, I took my first cruise with Carnival. I packed Dramamine, a wristband (that helps avoid seasickness) and I packed the little circle bandaid type strips that are designed to go behind your ear. To my surprise, I did not get seasick but felt pretty sick because I spent money on all of these products that are designed to help prevent seasickness πŸ˜‚.

Still, it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. I had a wonderful time on both the Carnival and Cabo voyage. As you can tell from the video, the weather was very beautiful and the waves were not as choppy. Truly one of the best voyages that I have been on because of the weather and the wonderful tour guide that we had on that day.

In case you are interested in booking this same tour, it can be found on the Trip Advisor site or app. It is the Cabo San Lucas Glass Bottom Boat tour and it contains a couple of hours on the sea, tour of a glass blowing factory, lunch, tequila tasting and a tour around the city of San Jose del Cabo. You will be so glad that you booked this tour – prepare to have loads of fun 🀩!

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˜€

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!
