Spectacular Luau Views😍😍😍❀️❀️!

Luau vibes are excellentπŸ˜ƒ! I made up in my mind that if given the opportunity to go back to Hawaii, that I would visit a luau. Ladies and gentlemen, that is exactly what I did. Here is just a glimpse of what was in store during this visit: youtube.com/shorts/rv6cMP7xIpU

Pretty cool video, huh πŸ€”? I loved everything about these amazing vibes. I remember thoroughly enjoying the wonderful show. It greatly exceeded my expectations in so many different ways. I definitely encourage others to share in this experience at least one time. You will enjoy every minute of it for sure.

This video shows the beauty of the experience! Well choreographed and so very entertaining. The video was taken at the Smith Family Luau in Kauai, Hawaii. This experience can be booked directly from Trip Advisor. Trip Advisor is definitely one of my favorite websites to visit as I prepare for upcoming trips. You can find out all the popular activities to partake in as you travel to various destinations.

Hope you enjoy the video and that you plan to visit Hawaii some time on the near future. πŸ˜ƒ

Waterfall Vibes πŸŒŠπŸ’¦πŸ˜Ž!

I am a waterfall chaser!😊 Love to capture them wherever I go. I have been blessed to travel to a number of places that have waterfalls and I have not been disappointed ☹️. Here is Wailua Falls – which is located in Kauai, Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/33WAcdYzaF4

Hope that you enjoyed the beautiful video😊! Waterfalls are amazing wonders of nature. You stand awestruck when you see them and want to take as many pictures as possible πŸ˜‚. Thankfully on this recent trip, I was able to capture this one in addition to Opaeka Falls which you will see on a future post.

On this particular day, it was almost as if everybody from Kauai converged on this area at the same time. The small road to see this wonder was completely packed with tourists. I was aboard a tour bus so we thankfully were able to park in one of the few parking spots reserved for tour buses.

As the video pans out from the waterfall to the water below, you will see a small beach πŸ– area where a few people were hanging out. Turns out that these folks found a trail to hike down in order to get to that area. Since that activity was not a part of the tour experience, I stayed on the lookout road.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will check back for other travel blog experiences, as I continue to cover the earth 🌍 before it covers me πŸ˜‚.

Message in a Bottle VibesπŸ˜β€οΈπŸŒ΄πŸ”

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 πŸ˜‚. 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 πŸ™ŒπŸ‘!

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 πŸ˜‚. 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 πŸ˜ƒ!

Breakfast in Paradise 😎❀️😍

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 viewπŸ˜ƒ. That was my situation while vacationing on the beautiful island of Kauai. Storm β›ˆ 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 πŸ˜‚!

Happy Mother’s Day❀️❀️!

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 πŸ˜ƒ. 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 for the Weekend 😍❀️πŸ”₯

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

Waterfall Vibes – So Amazing 🀩!

Who doesn’t love a beautiful waterfall? Of course, everyone does. There is just something about seeing the water fall from different elevations that really appeals to is as human beings😊! In fact, we like it so much that the sounds of waterfalls is often used to either generate calmness in us and/or sleepiness. We are fans of waterfalls and we cannot get enough of seeing them.

If you have followed this blog for some time, you know that I am a huge fan of waterfalls. Both times that I have visited Hawaii, it was to chase waterfalls. Thankfully πŸ˜… I not only chased them but also captured video of them to be used on this blog and shared widely on social media. Here is a video of Wailua Falls, for your viewing pleasure: youtube.com/shorts/9rO8BlTaudE

Very beautiful waterfall to chase for sureπŸ˜ƒ! I saw my first waterfall back in 2021 and I have been hooked ever since. I have posted videos of each of the waterfalls that I have seen, out here on my blog. Feel free to go see those posts also. They are really incredible!

Although my experience with waterfalls have been entirely in Hawaii, waterfalls exist in other places of the world 🌎. Feel free to explore waterfalls closer to where you may live. They are such beautiful natural wonders! I plan to explore other places of the world 🌎 to chase additional waterfalls in the near future!

Nature Views from Kauai πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

Smith’s Grotto is definitely a must see πŸ˜ƒ! ! It is a wonderful place to visit during any Hawaiian 🌺 adventure. This tour was absolutely one for the ages: youtube.com/shorts/28c-agNN3Qw

Hawaii, as you have seen from the videos that have been posted, is an absolute dream. On the video above, we are on a nature journey to see the infamous Smith Grotto!πŸ˜ƒ Could not believe the absolute beautiful views that I was able to capture on the journey there.

In a later post on this blog, I will ensure that I post video exclusively from the Smith Grotto location. It is an absolute thing of beauty! I was so surprised to find out that so many people get married there!

Hope that you enjoyed the video above ❀️! It was such a joy to visit this place and I am glad to be able to share it with everyone.

Cruising is Fun 🀩!

Cruising is fun especially when you are on a magnificent vacation of your dreams πŸ˜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 πŸ˜… I succeeded πŸ˜‚. It was a little on the slippery side and of course, the boat was moving pretty fast πŸ˜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 πŸ˜‚. 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.πŸ˜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!πŸ˜ƒ

Weekend Hula Vibes😎🌺🏝!

Hula Vibes are the best vibes. I got a chance to see this up close and personal at the Smith Family Luau in Kauai HawaiiπŸ˜ƒ! This trip represented the first time that I had heard ever experienced the Luau experience and I loved it 😍. Here is just a glimpse of what I saw during this very entertaining show: youtube.com/shorts/4VCXpbPVXKU

Hula Dancing is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian 🌺 culture. So much so, that you could have the Luau experience at your hotel or at a different location (like this one) almost anywhere on the island. You literally have your pick of venues. Before visiting Hawaii, I was told by a friend of mine that you have to have the Luau experience at least once. I am certainly glad that I did!

It felt so very good to have checked this experience off the bucket list. When I first visited Hawaii on last year, mostly all of the Luaus were closed due to Covid. Since things are opening up, the Luaus are as well.

Hope that you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed seeing itπŸ˜ƒ!
