Merry Christmas One and AllπŸ˜€!

Merry Christmas to everyone πŸ˜ƒ! Hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas 🎁. There was a songwriter that coined the phrase that “Christmas just isn’t Christmas, without the one you love”❀️Hope you were able to spend the time with family and loved ones. Here is a video from a neighborhood that is definitely in the Christmas spirit:. youtube.com/shorts/FjSdWofmYu0

Hope you enjoyed the festive vibes. There is just something about the most wonderful time of the yearπŸ˜ƒ! Seems that people you meet during this time of the year are more friendlier and a whole lot nicer.πŸ˜ƒ

With Christmas winding down and as we get closer to the end of the year, I am hoping that this holiday season brings you peace, love and joy 🀩!

Sailing the Na Pali Coast😍!

Sailing the Na Pali Coast was amazing 😍! Could not believe the beautiful ocean and mountain views that I was able to see. You can only imagine how beautiful it would be to see an amazing view like this: youtube.com/shorts/DomiO6dmcm8

This view was so incredible, right there from aboard the catamaran. From traveling along with me (virtually), I try to capture every beautiful view that I see πŸ˜ƒ. As you can see from the video above, I really had my hands full πŸ˜‚. The Na Pali Sunset Cruise is one that you cannot miss when visiting the beautiful island of Kauai.

As I mentioned before, and it is definitely worth mentioning now, the Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise can be booked from the Trip Advisor website (TripAdvisor.com). They also have an app to make it even more convenient πŸ˜‚. It is my go to for traveling and I certainly recommend it to you also. I read the reviews before booking this excursion and people absolutely loved it❀️!

If you love views like the one captured in the above video, do yourself a favor and head to Kauai for a much needed vacation. You will be so glad that you did! 😎

Carnival Cruise Vibes😎❀️!

Cruising is absolutely one of my favorite past timesπŸ˜ƒ! I absolutely enjoy being out on the water and taking in all of the spectacular views. If you have followed this blog for some time, you already know that I am a huge fan of cruising. As 2022 comes to a close and I look out on the horizon of 2023, I am hopeful to cruise, yet again, embarking on uncharted territory and experiencing new adventures πŸ˜ƒ. If you have never cruised before, here is a glimpse of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/TQ-LnBQ_Kvs

There is nothing like the feeling of being onboard a cruise ship! It is a feeling that cannot really be described but experiencedπŸ˜ƒ. Meeting new people and trying new cuisine are great but the amazing views of the ship cruising along the vast sea is just incredible. It is awesome being able to see the ocean for as far as the eye can see.

I know that this image can be scary at first but you get used to seeing it, after you have cruised for a while and it no longer bothers you. It is calming, much like watching a beautiful waterfall. I love the smooth vibrations of the cruise ship 🚒 sailing along the beautiful blue waters.

If you are currently planning to vacation in 2023, I would like to strongly recommend taking a cruise for the first time. You will be in awe 🫒 of what you will see and the memories that you will make😎!

Holiday Vibes at Kalahari πŸ˜ƒ!

Nothing like spending a well deserved vacation at Kalahari Resorts and Hotels 🏨. If you have not visited this place, you will be in for an absolute treatπŸ˜ƒ! I have blogged about it before but it is still definitely worth mentioning again. This is a place that you can visit to relax and get away from the frigid weather that many are needing at this time πŸ˜ƒ. Here is a look at this beautiful indoor waterpark , that is destined to become a fixture to your vacation plans: youtube.com/shorts/WKdMEPU0VBE

As you can see in the video, it is good, clean fun for everyoneπŸ˜ƒ. I had a blast there and it was just so incredibly awesome to have it climate controlled, so that you are not too hot πŸ₯΅. Many waterparks that I have visited within the summer, become unbearable at times because the temperatures are in the 90s and you have to reapply sunscreen (almost on a few hours basis) to not get sunburned.

For this reason alone, it is well worth a trip to a Kalahari Resort near you, just to experience it for yourself. You will be amazed by the spectacular views of the resorts and the vast amenities that they have to offer. It is fun for every member of your family and you will experience countless hours of fun while enjoying the waterpark, in addition to experiencing the ginormous arcade (TomFoolery) while you are there.

Believe me, it is absolutely a place that you cannot miss. You will enjoy all there is to offer there and get the rest and relaxation that all of us need.

Jamaican Pool Workout πŸ˜ƒ!

If you love working out as much as I do, you will indeed love this pool workout that I captured πŸ˜ƒ: youtube.com/shorts/AyoBVnPCOWI

Wouldn’t you love to hang out here also? What an amazing resort the Hilton Rose Hall is. This was the second time that I had the opportunity to stay at this magnificent place. If you are looking for a place to hang out during your stay in Montego Bay, look no further than this outstanding resort! It looks like paradise as you can see in the video.

On this particular day, it was bittersweet, because after a few fun filled days there, it was unfortunately time to go 😒. If you have followed this blog for a while, you have seen the spectacular views that Jamaica has to offer.

This is a perfect time to visit Jamaica because the weather is so cold πŸ₯Ά now. Jamaica is one of the best keep secrets for snow birds 🐦 in the winter. It is one of the least expensive options, which makes it high on my list! If rest and relaxation is high in your list, Jamaica is the place to go.

Na Pali Coast Smooth Sailing πŸ˜ƒ!

How I love smooth sailing ⛡️ ❀️❀️! Days don’t always go smoothly but incredible cruises do πŸ˜‚. I was so glad to be on this wonderful expedition. Here is just a snapshot of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/7JcFN4VSfzo

Isn’t it just amazing 🀩. I really fell in love with the wonderful views that I saw there. It is absolutely a dream come true and should be experienced by as many as possible. I honestly cannot wait to go back to this magnificent place. I have gone to many islands 🏝️ before and this one is the number 1 on my list.

Along with the Na Pali Coast shores and mountains, these are also other excursions that you can see. Many places for luaus, fire πŸ”₯ shows and beautiful beaches also. Kauai is to be experienced and enjoyedπŸ˜ƒ! You will leave much better than you came.

Jamaica Destination Vibes😍❀️!

If you are looking for an escape from the bitterly cold weather of winter, I would like to suggest spending a week or so on the beautiful island of Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ˜ƒ! The island has so much to offer and you will instantly love the great people, food and the beautiful beaches. This location may be just what the doctor ordered πŸ˜‚:youtube.com/shorts/2JskdSjj3Qo

I have visited the island 🏝️ twice now and I have done different excursions each time. Although it is a small island, you will not get bored πŸ₯±. There is so much to do and so little time to do it πŸ˜‚ ❀️. You will essentially run out of time before running out of things to do.

The Hilton Rose Hall is definitely a spectacular place to stay while visiting Montego Bay. The hotel is top notch and has something to offer for everyone. It is also all inclusive, which in my book, makes it an even better experience πŸ˜ƒ.

If you are a snow ❄️ bird 🦒, who is looking to move to warmer climates during the spring, you are sure to enjoy the magnificent island of Jamaica. You can experience not only a break from the cold temperature, but some much needed relaxation!❀️

Carnival Cruise Sail Away Vibes😎

Sailing is a relaxing experience πŸ˜ƒSo relaxing that if you do it once, you will want to do it again. It is certainly an incredible experience that you are sure to enjoy. My experience sailing/cruising has been, up to this point, on Carnival. Carnival does an excellent job of keeping you relaxed and keeping you engaged during your entire voyage. Here is just a snippet of the fun vibes that you are sure to enjoy during your voyage: youtube.com/shorts/UVWuWfXKuW8

So very fun and very entertaining at the same time. Could not believe my eyes when I got on the ship 🚒 but I quickly realized that this first sail away entertainment, was just preparing me for the fun that would come everyday during the cruise experience.

It was a lot of fun, to say the least. There is something for kids of all ages to do. Really the only thing that you will manage is your time to do everything there is to offer. Cruising is totally next level and you will leave the experience, leaps and bounds better than you started it!

So if you have been on the fence about taking a cruise for 2023 – this is absolutely your sign to do so. Cruises are taking new voyages and the sooner that you book, the cheaper it will be πŸ˜ƒ!

Jamaica Beach TripπŸ˜ŽπŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ!

Life is a beach πŸ–πŸ˜Ž! My favorite paths in life has always led to the beach πŸ–. It is one of the best past times there is. I have never seen a beach that I have not loved. Maybe it is the warm sunshine or possibly the waves hitting against the shoreπŸ˜ƒ. Whatever it is – I need it always. Vacations are made to be experienced at the beach. It is so very relaxing and provides a proper respite from the regular day to day drudgery (at times) of life. Here is one such beach that brings back so many fond memories: youtube.com/shorts/yFbIHu0f2Mo

If you have never been to Jamaica, make your plans to get there ASAP πŸ˜ƒ! You will enjoy the gorgeous views, beautiful sunrises and the warm hospitality of the Jamaican people. Make no mistake about it, this is a trip that needs to be taken. If you love beach πŸ– vacations – you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful place to experience it.

Carnival Dance πŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΎParty VibesπŸ˜ƒ!

Nothing like a great dance party to get things going πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒ! I love this experience, whether on land or by sea. I am reminded of a great dance πŸ’ƒ party that took place during a recent cruise. It was so totally epic that I still remember how much fun that I had from the great experience. Here is how it got started: youtube.com/shorts/teYB4OTSAaE

I will forever be a great fan of cruises 🚒. I am partial to Carnival Cruises but that is only because I have not tried any of the others πŸ˜‚. I plan to be more active on the cruise front and try the various other cruise lines. It will be interesting to understand the similarities and the differences across the various cruise lines.

This dance party πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ was the first one that I had the pleasure of experiencing and the first that I actually recorded also. I am a big fan of making videos while I am on vacation. Of course, you probably figured that by now, πŸ˜‚ since I have this travel blog and other travel related social media accounts (@travelfitguru). Find and follow me on all social media for moreπŸ˜ƒ.
