Sailing is one of my favorite past times. 😊Once I retire one of these days, I look forward to life cruising around the world 🌎 as I venture on even more vacations. In the meantime, I plan to work, travel and repeat as many times as possible 😂. Here is a short video from a recent sailing adventure – hold on tight 😊: 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 🙌👏!
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 😂. 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 😃!
Perhaps one of the best views that I have ever had at breakfast, is right here: youtube.com/shorts/5gyKwXSyO2w
Imagine having delicious food here and having such a wonderful view😃. That was my situation while vacationing on the beautiful island of Kauai. Storm ⛈ clouds aside, it was a view that I could get used too.
The location where I captured this video is the Hilton Garden Inn in Kauai, Hawaii. Should your travel plans take you to Kauai in the near and not so distant future, consider adding this place to your vacation plans. It is certainly a bargain compared to more pricier hotels in Kauai.
What you are seeing is the garden area of the hotel, which is located right outside of the restaurant. On this particular day, I was enjoying the top notch breakfast at there and wanted to capture the beautiful view. When you take a picture or video, it tends to last longer 😂!
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the true beautiful treasures of the world 🌎. Having been blessed with a great mother, I can never underestimate the power of a mother’s influence on a life😊. A mother’s love and affection can never be minimized.
One of the things that Mom (and Dad) passed on to me was the desire to travel to new locations. We used to take summer trips in the car to various locations. I remember how cool it was to see a new place that I had never seen before 😃. It was almost as if I was in a different country. Here is a great video, that I had to share, which gave me the same vibe as when I was a kid: youtube.com/shorts/N3PPLNdQZH8
Hope that you enjoyed this video. This was the first video that I captured after landing in Hawaii. It was jaw dropping and will be forever burned in my mind. Little did I know how much adventure awaited me during this entire trip!
Tropical vibes are the best vibes 😊! I love traveling to tropical places and experiencing tropical adventures😃. For me, I could retire on a tropical island somewhere and live happily ever after. That’s my retirement plan for sure 😂. The toughest thing for me will be figuring out which tropical island that I would like to retire on.
If there is ever one island that stands out in my mind, it would be the beautiful island of Kauai, which absolutely took my breath away😃. I have never seen an island as beautiful as I saw visiting Kauai. To say that it is the number one travel location that I have ever visited, is spot on. Here is just a glimpse of the type of beauty that you will see there: youtube.com/shorts/90vPMdD89OI
The video above, captures some of the Smith Fern Grotto, which is a must see when visiting Kauai. If you are a lover of all things tropical, look no further than the Smith Fern Grotto. In order to get here, you have to take a 15-20 minute boat ride and walk through a small forest to get there!
Sounds like an adventure for sure and you are sure to enjoy the sights and the sounds of visiting this beautiful place. Hope that you will make your plans soon to visit.
Hope you are having a great day today 😍! The weekend is fast approaching and some of you may be experiencing the weekend already. If you have ever been to Cabo San Lucas, it is such a magnificent place! It has probably gotten a bad reputation over the years with people acting badly there but it is such a gorgeous place to go. I have only been there once but it left quite an indelible impression on me.
In addition to camel 🐫 riding , for the first time, I got a chance to sail the Sea of Cortez on one of the magnificent voyages of my life. Seeing all of the sights and sounds of Cabo, made me look forward to coming back soon. Cabo is one of the best locations that I have ever visited and for one of the reasons captured right here: youtube.com/shorts/lPO5UBgj1Ng
The magnificent rock structure that you saw in the video is called Neptune’s Finger and aptly so because it resembles a finger 😂. It was a beautiful day at sea on that day and I captured many other views previously in other blog posts. Please feel free to scroll this blog for other sea adventures!
Cruising is fun especially when you are on a magnificent vacation of your dreams 😃. 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 😅 I succeeded 😂. It was a little on the slippery side and of course, the boat was moving pretty fast 😃. 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 😂. There is just something so very peaceful about cruising that makes you forget about the rest of the world 🌎.
Out there, everything feels right even if in reality, it is not.😃 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!😃
Nothing like a great performance😃! Especially when it involves fire 🔥. 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 talented😃! I shudder to think how many times he might have gotten burned doing this 😂 but he has perfected his trade 😃. 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 time😃. This was so much of a great, rich experience 😃. Turns out that these type of shows are a part of the luau experience and is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian 🌺 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.
If you have never been to the Na Pali Coast, you are in for a treat 😃! 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 least😊. As I have shared before on this blog, if you are interested in this cruise 🚢, 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 😂! 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!
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 😂! Thankfully, I captured this experience on my camera and here it is: youtube.com/shorts/3qHo8PXBQx8
Did you see that huge tail 😳? I was astounded 😮 and could not believe my own eyes 👀. This is totally stuff that you see on tv, but surely not with your own eyes 👀? 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.😊
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!😃
Hope that everyone had a great Easter Sunday! I certainly did – it was a great feeling to be out and about, enjoying family, friends and the weather. Memories are what life is really all about. It has been rightly said the people forget the years and remember moments. Here is one of the those beautiful moments that make life much more beautiful:youtube.com/shorts/qwCvJFsWBIE
This video shows a magnificent sunset along the beautiful shores of the Napali Coast in Kauai, Hawaii. If you would like to book this tour for yourself, you can do so on Trip Advisor. The tour is called the Napali Sunset Cruise. It was totally incredible and you are sure to enjoy the experience.
This is a beautiful sunset especially for an Easter Weekend. It shows the magnificent splendor of this beautiful world that we live in. Hope that you enjoy the video and that you enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.
