Paradise Found-Omg😎!

Island views are the best views, bar none! 😊 My last few vacations have been to tropical locations. Here is one of the best beaches that I have ever visited: youtube.com/shorts/4cgoEGbEgxM

Hope that you appreciate the beauty of this spectacular video. The contrast of black sand and blue water is just exceptional. Looking at this video takes me instantly back to sitting on the beach πŸ–. Especially experiencing such a cool day at home on today.

This is definitely paradise and I am so glad that I found it on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was so very impressive and a must visit if you are looking for vacation options in 2022. If you are thinking of visiting the Big Island of Hawaii soon, be sure to check out other posts like these on my blog.

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.

Michael Jackson Vibes😎🎡🎡

One of my favorite artists of all time is the King of PopπŸ˜€! His music still lives on, even though he is no longer with us. To my surprise, when I was visiting Jamaica, I was able to attend a concert at my hotel: Hilton Rose Hall. Here is a snippet of the performance: youtube.com/shorts/I_lqCaIU7rY

It was a great impersonation of Michael Jackson, down to the make up and dance πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎmoves. He was truly one of a kind but so was this hotel 🏨! If you ever venture to Montego Bay, Jamaica, I highly recommend staying at this hotel. It has wonderful performances, like the one above, and it is luxury personified. It has all of the amenities that you would want and the best part, it is all inclusive.

This has been my only all inclusive experience throughout my travels. It is totally the way to go for sure. All of the food and drinks are included in the price of the hotel. Cannot get any better than that.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

If you would like to see the other Smooth Criminal performance that I captured from this concert, feel free to look at the previous posts in my blog. Have a great day!

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˜€

View of the DayπŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸŒ΄

If you need a pick me up for the day, then look no further than this video: youtube.com/shorts/M-yCNDwS7aY

It is sure to bring a smile to your face especially if you enjoy wonderful views. This is an absolute beauty! I could not believe the views that I was seeing. What made it especially great was the lookout point where I was standing. It provided an excellent bird’s eye view of the shore.

This view was captured in the wonderful city of San Jose del Cabo. If you have never visited, do yourself a favor and go. It is literally located about 15 minutes from the well known city of Cabo San Lucas. Cabo is a beautiful city to see, as you can tell from my earlier posts on this blog.

Certainly appreciative of this view during the fall and winter months. I am definitely not a lover of cold weather but the snow views that I have seen on social media and other places are just magnificentπŸ™ŒπŸ˜€!

Happy travels to you all and I hope that you enjoyed the wonderful video above. Have a great day!

Footprints in the Sand 😎!

One of my favorite poems of all time is “Footprints in the Sand”. If you have not read it, I encourage you to do so. Such a powerful message that resonates even more now in the days we live in. I cannot help but think about this poem when I look at this beautiful beach, filled with footprints πŸ‘£ in the sand: youtube.com/shorts/-NVWqJiQ9co

If you are wondering which hotel that this video was taken, it was taken at the Hilton Los Cabos Resort. I was on the balcony of my hotel room which thankfully was an ocean side view. Ocean view rooms are always ideal but they tend to be more expensive.

This particular day, as you can tell from the video, was clear and sunny. We tend to long for these type of days especially during the winter. The great thing about tropical 🐠 locations is that they have these days throughout the whole year. Birds have the right idea to fly south for the winter πŸ˜‚!

Snow birds are very popular this time of the year. There are always warm, tropical locations to flock too. Not a bad way to spend winter πŸ₯ΆπŸ˜ƒβ˜οΈ!
