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 😃. 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!

Happy Earth Day 🌎😃!

Happy Earth Day to one and all 😃! Hope that you enjoyed Earth Day and that you commit to doing something that helps our world to be a better place to live in. Only one Earth 🌍 so we have to take care of it. Speaking of the Earth, I have a special video using one of our planet’s elements, fire 🔥. If you have never seen a fire show before, please take a look at this beautiful one: youtube.com/shorts/Ztgo9iUJBx8

Hope that you enjoyed it and also hope that you will have an opportunity to see one in person. It is certainly a sight to see for sure. I got an opportunity to see this gem at a hotel that I was staying in while visiting Kauai. I did not know what to expect but I can truly say that this exceeded my expectations.

The dancers were so extremely talented – to be as skilled as they were with all of the fire that they were handling was just superb! I hope that you enjoy the video and that you had an amazing Earth Day on yesterday and that you are having a wonderful weekend!

Na Pali Sea Adventures😱😃⛵️⛵️!

The sea helps me be me 😂! Cruising is quickly becoming a favorite past time for me. Once I return from a cruise, wherever it is, I soon make plans to embark on another adventure 😃. I spent the majority of my life not really cruising at all. It is really within the past 4 years that I have really started taking cruises. If you have followed this blog for a while, you know that there was a period of time that I questioned whether or not cruising could be fun. Which means that even if you have not taken cruises in the past, there are present and future opportunities to give it a try😃

Admittedly, most of my cruise experiences have taken place aboard a Carnival Cruise 🚢. So when I recently visited Kauai, I was not sure of what to expect onboard the Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise. I had never been on a catamaran before, so I was not sure what the experience would be like. Wow, was I amazed from this experience! I have captured some of it here (hang on 😂): youtube.com/shorts/Zn4zhPoex0A

Isn’t that just incredible? The catamaran was a little slippery so I had to make sure to balance myself while capturing these spectacular views. Views like these are why travel makes you speechless and a storyteller all at the same time. It was almost like an out of body experience 😂- could not believe my own eyes 👀.

If you are looking for a wonderful trip just to get away from it all, this is the place to visit. I would go back here in a heartbeat 💓. I had so much fun on the cruise and on the island 🏝 as a whole. You will absolutely love the fun and the experiences that this beautiful location has to offer! 😃

Waterfall Magic from Hawaii 💦 😎

Akaka Falls State Park is as an absolute dream 😴. After seeing so many posts down through the years about waterfalls, this park provided me the perfect opportunity to see waterfalls up close and personal. Here is the link to one of the best that Akaka Falls had to offer: youtube.com/shorts/kxw2xMDRT7k

It is just a magnificent waterfall for sure. The name of this one is Kahuna Falls, and it is a big kahuna 😂! This particular day, I braved the very heavy rain 🌧 in order to see this beautiful sight. Once you park on-site, you have to hike the rest of the way to see the waterfalls.

As I have mentioned before in a previous post, the waterfalls are at higher elevations so it will certainly test your conditioning. I remember huffing and puffing 😮‍💨 as I went from one waterfall to the other. I made it safely to both and was able to capture beautiful videos as a result.

The “Big Kahuna” was so beautiful and it is the smaller of the waterfalls that are located there. Feel free to check my previous posts for a look at the even bigger Kahuna – Akaka Falls. It is truly ginormous! 😃🙌

Happy Holidays- Dance in the Rain 🌧😀!

There is an old saying that goes like this: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain”. This is so very true. We have storms in life that seem so overwhelming but we cannot lose hope😃! We must learn the importance of dancing 💃 🕺🏾in the midst of the storm. Realizing that storms do not last always but as we see in rainstorms, they appear for a while and all of the sudden they are gone. I observed a storm in, of all places, Hawaii. The beauty of the storm at this beach, kept me continuing to capture this video: youtube.com/shorts/9CtrmGv8J3Q

Sometimes there can certainly be beauty in the storm ⛈ 😃! As we see in the video, the raindrops are frequent and they are big. Yet the beauty of the water crashing along the shore is captivating. Even through the rain, this beach still continues to amaze me in this video.

This is the only black sand beach that I have visited as I have traveled. I certainly plan to seek out more to explore in the near future because I had so much fun visiting this one. 2022 may certainly provide an opportunity to visit another beach and who knows, maybe it could be a green sand beach, which I have heard so much about! 😃

Christmas Vibes 🎅🎅🎄🎄

Christmas is almost here! Just around the corner now- it is hard to believe 😊. This video brings out all of the Christmas feels: youtube.com/shorts/qUObs_d3HjA

I love this time of the year, it is a time for giving and receiving❤️. As you walk around, the Christmas feeling is everywhere. I have seen more smiles than I have seen the entire year 😂. Despite all that we all have been through, we set it aside and get ready to enjoy the holidays.

Absolutely the most wonderful time of the year and the most anticipated. I am enjoying the holidays already, spending time with family and friends. We are doing so in a safe and effective manner and definitely encourage others to do so.

Hope that you all are enjoying the holiday away and that you enjoy the video.

Ocean Eyes – Tropical 🐠 🌴Mood

Ocean views are the best views by far 😎! Incredible sights and unbelievable sounds provide such a wonderful refuge from the everyday life routine that we all have grown accustomed to. If you need a great reminder of the peace and tranquillity that such a location can provide, look no further than this link: youtube.com/shorts/Npc3oB9xgHw

There is just something magical about getting your daily dose of vitamin sea that calms the mind and soothes the soul🙌. It is your “serenity now” moment that provides peace within under the sky above.

It really doesn’t matter how many times that I have been to the beach, where the beach is located or when I have last visited the beach. It is always priority one to get back as soon as I can! My best paths in life, have led to the beach somewhere 🌴.

If you have followed this blog, you know this already and you have seen pictures and videos from beaches from various locations. As I continue to travel and even in times that I am not traveling, I will share posts such as these as personal investments in experiences, that have made my life so much richer😊🙌!

Sailing ⛵️ on the High Seas of Cabo San Lucas 😀

If you have never been to Cabo San Lucas or even if you have, feel free to check out this video: youtube.com/shorts/DgcmgS7VI2s

This was quite an experience, taking a boat tour out to the beautiful waters of Cabo San Lucas. For me it was a dream come true. This trip was booked through Trip Advisor and what a magnificent trip it was.

The video shows a glimpse of Lovers Beach which is located right outside of the world famous Cabo San Lucas Arch! You will see more of the Arch in later posts. There is also a Divorce Beach nearby 😂, which I thought was very funny!

The tour includes views of not just Lovers Beach 🏖 and the Arch but also other views (i.e. Neptune’s Finger, Pathway to the Pacific etc). If you love sailing, you will love this glass bottom boat tour!

Akaka Falls State Park Vibes – Hawaii🤩 💦 💦

Cool views and picturesque trails await you in Hilo, Hawaii at the Akaka Falls State Park. 😎 I assure you, that you have never seen cool views like the ones that are shown here in this video: youtube.com/shorts/uXKi0m2iobU

At this particular park, there are two waterfalls: Akaka Falls and Kahuna Falls. In my previous posts you will see videos of both of them. The video above, is an example of the beauty that you behold as you hike to the waterfalls. The beautiful rivers and streams are so magnificent.

On this particular day, it was raining 🌧 but the view was not distorted at all. Unfortunately, visitors were not allowed to get close to the waterfalls but the views were still very scenic, nonetheless.

Feel free to follow this blog for more travel pictures and videos. Have a great day and stay safe! 😀
