Hula 🌺Vibes for Good Friday!

Happy Good Friday to one and allπŸ˜ƒ! What a great Friday to be alive and what a wonderful end to another week. If you have ever visited a luau or even if you have not, you are sure to enjoy this video:

Hope that you liked this video! πŸ˜€ It was so amazing to be able to see this live and in person. The dancers were just so very talented. The great thing about visiting the beautiful island of Kauai is that they have luaus and fire shows virtually everywhere, especially since Covid restrictions are starting to get more relaxed 😎.

On this particular day, I was visiting the Coconut Marketplace in East Kauai, when I heard some beautiful music and I saw a crowd of people congregating around a stage in the center of the marketplace. Since I am very curious, I thought that I would follow the music 🎢. In doing so, I found these beautiful hula dancers and singers.

The music was so very beautiful 🀩 and of course the dancing was top notch also!πŸ˜ƒ It was honestly just great to be outside and around other people again – mask freeπŸ˜ƒ! From visiting the island 🏝, I developed more of an appreciation for the people, food and the beautiful culture!

Feel free to visit this blog, early and often for more travel adventures! Looking forward to more and more travel days ahead.

Fun at Sea – Sail Away VibesπŸŒ΄πŸ˜ƒ

Nothing quite like a party πŸŽ‰β€οΈβ€πŸ©ΉπŸ”₯! Amazing how having fun 🀩 never goes out of style πŸ˜‚. If anything, we want more and more opportunities to be able to enjoy and to celebrate πŸŽ‰. Truth is, that we spend so much time doing life that we rarely stop to smell the roses 🌹 and appreciate the life that we are living. I found a quote today that says, “Never be so busy making a living that you forget to make a life”.

Indeed, life has so much more to offer than the regular mundane life of making a living, paying bills, repeat. There has to be fun found somewhere in the equation of life. Going out and seeing the rest of the world is one way to incorporate fun but just lounging on the patio, meeting with friends for dinner, having a fun weekend etc. allows the mind and body to recharge. Here is an excellent fun time that I just shared to YouTube – I hope that you enjoy:

Fun times indeed – I still remember it like it was yesterdayπŸ˜ƒ! We had so much fun on that day that I did not want it to stop πŸ˜‚. Alas, it had to and we were on our way to Costa Maya! On this cruise, we would not only visit Costa Maya but Belize and Cozumel as well.

Hope that you enjoy the video and most importantly, stop πŸ›‘ to smell the roses 🌹 that you earned and deserveπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ!

Waterfall Chaser πŸ˜ƒπŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ

Who doesn’t like chasing waterfalls? Until I visited Hawaii recently, I did not know how much I would love ❀️ chasing waterfallsπŸ˜ƒ! They are so majestic and the sounds are so relaxing 😎. Waterfalls are absolutely one of the beautiful wonders of nature. Getting outside and chasing waterfalls really gives me a rush. Here is a beautiful video of Akaka Falls, located in the the Akaka Falls State Park:

I hope that you enjoyed the videoπŸ˜ƒ! I am hoping that you enjoy it enough that you are considering even going to see it for yourselfπŸ™Œ. Once you visit one, you cannot wait to go visit another. As I captured this video, my mouth was wide open the entire time, 😳 in total disbelief of what I was seeing.

Imagine observing a giant that is standing in front of you. It is thousands of feet tall and just massiveπŸ˜€. You feel like an ant 🐜 compared to the size of the giant. That is pretty much how you feel in the presence of one of these awesome wonders. It also makes you realize that there are beautiful things in this world 🌎 that leaves you speechless at the time and makes you a storyteller from then on. I look forward to seeing more things as I cover the earth 🌍 before it covers me.

Please follow this blog for more adventuresπŸ˜ƒ! I love to travel and share unbelievable content with everyone. Who knows, maybe sometime along the way, I will encourage you all to work, vacation and repeat also πŸ™Œ

Hawaii Pool Vibes😎🏝🌸🏝!

I absolutely love pools and what could be better than pool vibes in Hawaii!😎This resort was just what the doctor ordered. This resort is called the Sheraton Coconut Beach Resort in Kauai. Love the great vibrations that I was feeling here: I have attached a short video to provide an idea of the beautiful vibes that this hotel had ti offer:

Who would not want to stay here? It is absolutely beautiful and you can tell, from the video, that folks were having an extremely great time!😎 Pool and Beach views at this hotel were all just next level. When I travel, it is always my goal to boldly go, where I have not gone before – just like Star Trek!

If you are thinking of visiting Kauai in the near future, this is most certainly your place to stay. Surrounding areas have all of the shops and restaurants that you would want to see, in addition to experiencing a lot of the tourist locations and learning about the Hawaiian 🌺 culture.

From the video, you can see that this place is an absolute dream 😴. The amenities are top notch and the landscape is meticulously manicured in and around the hotel. You will definitely be glad that you visited this gorgeous hotel. Make sure to check the ratings to make sure that it meets your expectations!

Living on the EdgeπŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΄!

Living on the edge has never felt better πŸ˜€! 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 ⛡️ along the coast of Kauai:

It just so happened to be a beautiful day and a spectacular one for sailing ⛡️. Even during an almost 6 hour tour, it just did not seem long enough. Just wanted to experience more whale 🐳 and dolphin 🐬 watching, in addition to taking in more views and vibes of the ocean and mountains from the boat πŸ›₯ 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 🌹, 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 πŸ˜… 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 🀩 is accomplished without the danger ⛔️ πŸ˜‚. 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 πŸ˜€! Happy sails and trails πŸ˜ŽπŸ™ŒπŸ‘‹!

Viva Los Cabos😎🌴πŸ₯‚!!

Los Cabos is an absolute dream! If you have never been to Los Cabos – put it on your bucket listπŸ˜ƒ. Here is a great video of the beautiful hotel that I had the pleasure of staying in:.

The beautiful hotel seen in this video is the Hilton Los Cabos Hotel and ResortπŸ˜ƒ. One of the best hotels in Los Cabos. It was an absolute dream – you most definitely would enjoy the experience. For me, it starts with the largest hotel room that I have ever stayed in. Then, it is all about the amazing amenities and the ocean front views that will absolutely capture your heart ❀️.

If you have followed this blog for some time, I have highlighted many aspects of Mexico particularly Los Cabos! If you have not seen the previous posts, I encourage you to take a look. Most folks have heard of Cabo San Lucas, which is nearby. I actually went sailing on the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas.

The Hilton Los Cabos has one of the only swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, which also is an absolute plus. The waters in Los Cabos tend to be rough and choppy at times. You will enjoy countless hours hanging out at the beach πŸ–.

Hope that you will consider Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas in the future. With Spring Break approaching, this would be an excellent location to visitπŸ˜ƒ!

OMG 😳 – Aloha Friday VibesπŸ˜ŽπŸπŸ–

Aloha Friday to you all! Hope that everyone had a wonderful week and that you are all looking forward, as I am, to the weekend.πŸ˜ƒ How I love the wonderful song 🎡 “Everybody’s working for the weekend”. So much truth is that song . Even more compelling is working for the next vacation πŸ˜‚! Here is a great example of how vacationing soothes the soul:

Hope that you enjoyed the video. This is Punalu’u Beach which is located in Kona, Hawaii. What instantly stands out is the black sand which is just magnificent! Very cool to the touch and so beautiful 🀩. On this particular day, these views were the calm before a big storm which would happen about 10 minutes later.

Matter of fact, the storm β›ˆ got so severe that I ended my trip there and headed back to the hotel 🏨. I had planned to visit the Kilauea Volcano which was about 30 minutes away. It was so disappointing at the time but thankfully I got a chance to visit this beach πŸ–, and the volcano, in sunnier weather later in the week.

With Spring Break right around the corner, I encourage everyone to book some time to get away from it all, whether in Hawaii or someplace close to home πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ!

Life is a beach πŸ– πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ–!

Find your beach – popular phrase used a lot these days in commercials.πŸ˜ƒFinding your beach πŸ–, really speaks to finding your happy place, beach or otherwise. With so much going on these days, we are having to find our beaches, early and often. I totally found my happy place which happens to be a beach also πŸ˜‚ , one of the best that I have visited. I have captured it here:

This video was taken from the balcony of the Hilton Los Cabos Hotel. If you have never visited, I hope that you will in the future and that you will get an ocean view room. These room provide the absolute best views. That is probably why these rooms are at an absolute premium to book😊.

Although I have only visited this hotel once, it is absolutely number 1 on my list for visiting again! The amenities were top notch and the grounds of the hotel were immaculate. The only down side to the hotel was that it was not all inclusive. Many of the hotels in Mexico are all inclusive. I think that this hotel is one of the best non-all inclusive hotels in Los Cabos.

Hope that you enjoy the view and that you will make your plans to visit Los Cabos soon and stay at this gorgeous hotel. You will be glad that you did!πŸ˜ƒ

Come Through Today😍❀️🀩πŸ”₯

How I love staying at beautiful resorts while on vacation 😎! Absolutely nothing like it. For me, I never compromise. I am not one of those folks in which it doesn’t matter where I lay my head. If you are one of those folks, I admire your opinion- we will agree to disagree. For me, I lump where I stay, into the overall relaxation experience. Waking up to an ocean view from my window along with immaculate views of the property, is almost the best thing to heavenπŸ˜‚! Here is one of the best resorts that I have had the pleasure of staying at:

The video above was taken on the grounds of the beautiful Hilton Los Cabos Resort. I had such a beautiful time there and you can see why! This is why, ladies and gentlemen, we work, vacation and repeat πŸ”. These views are spectacular and instantly takes you back to magnificent times when you watch the video or replay the memories in your mind.

If you have never visited the Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas area, it is an amazing place to vacation. So much to do and so little time to do it. There are activities for the entire family. For the first time in my life, I rode a camel πŸͺ in Los Cabos😳! Of all the places, but it turns out that in addition to the beaches of Cabo, there is a desert 🌡 area called Wild Canyon. This area is amazing and a must see when you visit the area.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will add this part of Mexico to your future vacation plansπŸ˜€!

Atlantis on my mind 😎!

I remember when I visited Disney World as an adult, a number of years ago. I remember waiting for the bus to take me from my on-site hotel to Epcot Center. I was staying at the French Quarter Resort (excellent beignets BTW). While I was outside waiting on the shuttle bus, I saw that one of the folks waiting with me had on an Atlantis Water Adventure shirt. At the time, I had never heard of Atlantis but I was very intrigued that it was in The Bahamas, which is where I always wanted to visit. If you have never heard of this magnificent place, here is an introductory video of it:

To my surprise, not only was it a water park but it had on-site hotels just like Disney. Five years after seeing that Atlantis shirt, I booked a trip to see the lost city of Atlantis πŸ˜‚. My oh my, was I blown away. Atlantis is a world of fun, contained on the beautiful island of Nassau. First tropical island that I had ever visited and since that time, it has held a special place in my heart.

Not sure if you have heard the tag line or the seen the hashtag #itsbetterinthebahamas, but I can confirm that whatever “it” is, it is truly better there. I had so much fun on the water rides and the hotels were the epitome of luxury. I stayed at the Beach Tower Hotel and it was wonderfully superb.

See why #itisbetterinthebahamas for yourself by booking a wonderful trip to Nassau. When I went, there was no such thing as Covid-19, so if you travel there now, follow all safety precautions in order to get the most out of your stay. I will share video of a humongous water slide (Leap of Faith) that I still can’t believe that I got on πŸ˜‚ in a later postπŸ˜€.
