Tropical ๐ŸŒด Vibes for the Weekend ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Tropical vibes are the best vibes ๐Ÿ˜Š! I love traveling to tropical places and experiencing tropical adventures๐Ÿ˜ƒ. For me, I could retire on a tropical island somewhere and live happily ever after. That’s my retirement plan for sure ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 away๐Ÿ˜ƒ. 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.

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธinto the Weekend๐Ÿคฉ

Hope you are having a great day today ๐Ÿ˜! 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 ๐Ÿซ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 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

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.

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!

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

Happy Easter๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ!

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.

Evening in Na Pali๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ๐ŸŒž!

What a wonderful evening in Na Pali ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Absolutely the best sail expedition that I have ever been on. Take a look at this magnificent view: youtube.com/shorts/Q65gP5kpoys

It is so incredibly beautiful ๐Ÿคฉ- almost looks like a clip from a movie ๐ŸŽฅ. Must admit that I was pretty excited to try out the cinematic photography mode on my iPhone 13๐Ÿ˜ƒ! This video adequately captures the magnificent views that I experienced while on this beautiful sunset cruise ๐Ÿšข.

Absolutely jaw dropping views from onboard this beautiful catamaran! Must admit that this is the first time that I have actually had a catamaran experience. It was incredible and I would certainly sail on another one again. I have cruised aboard humongous cruise liners many times but never a catamaran๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

The best views by far are on the front of the catamaran๐Ÿ˜ƒ. It can also, unfortunately, be the wettest part of the ship also! Make sure to take caution โš ๏ธ as the boat is moving faster because you will most certainly get wet ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Enjoy the video and check back for more travel adventures of the exciting kind here on this blog๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ!

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‘‹!

Sailing on the Na Pali Coast๐Ÿ˜Žโ›ต๏ธ๐Ÿโ˜€๏ธ!

Until visiting Kauai this month, I had never been on a subset catamaran tour. Full disclosure, I had never been on a catamaran ever ๐Ÿ˜‚! I have seen rich celebrities, on tv, aboard these but have never had the experience. If you ever sail on one of these boats, the best views are in the front. You can see why, by viewing this video: youtube.com/shorts/cFN1IrzTijQ

Spectacular views indeed and I am thankful for the experience! Part of traveling for me, is trying something new. That being said, I am not afraid to open myself up to brand new experiences. I was greatly rewarded for my courage because the Na Pali Sunset Cruise in Kauai was just what the doctor ordered.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

It was by far the best cruise that I have taken to date. If you have followed this blog, you know how much of a cruiser I am. I could possibly work for the cruise industry at this point in time ๐Ÿ˜‚. I truly love being on the water ๐Ÿ’ฆ as often as possible. In fact, most of the excursions, on trips that I have taken, involved water in some way, shape or form.

This particular excursion, as the name implies, is 6 hour in duration and one of the only ways to view the Na Pali Coast. On land, it would take forever, by air, it would be expensive etc. Seeing the dolphins and whales are worth the price of the tour alone! The bonus views are the mountains that looks like you’re in Jurassic Park and the beautiful water ๐Ÿ’ฆ.

Hope that you enjoy the video and will make your plans to go to Kauai and take this tour! You will thank me later ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ
