La’ Aloa Bay Beach ParkπŸ˜ŽπŸŒ΄πŸ˜»πŸ–

Excellent beach views while driving along the streets of Kona Hawaii. This has been an absolute dose of paradise that has been greatly needed. Please check out the link here: πŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/H92Z13vAfKA

In addition to beautiful black sand beaches (which have been discussed and shown in previous posts), and green sand beaches, the link above shows a traditional white sand beach. La’ Aloa Bay Beach Park was definitely a sight for sore eyes πŸ‘€ πŸ˜€. It is located in the heart of the downtown area, near where the IronMan competition is held.

On this day, it was so beautiful outside, and the water was nice and so very warm. That is why there were so many people there. Getting the daily dose of Vitamin Sea is so important and I am so glad that I got mine from visiting this great place! πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

Akaka Falls State Park Vibes – Hawaii🀩 πŸ’¦ πŸ’¦

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! πŸ˜€

Walking into the weekend on Punalu’u Beach πŸ– 😎 🌴

Fun times visiting Punalu’u Beach Park youtube.com/watch it was such a blast. I never knew how much I missed these vibes until I got the opportunity to visit it for the first time since 2020. Sand beneath and sky above = peace within 🀩.

There is something about the combination of waves, sun, sand and sound of the ocean that becomes so very addicting. There is absolutely no way to get enough of this great vibe. It is so very addicting, so you long to go again.

This was a beautiful day on the beach πŸ– with not a bunch of people visiting on this particular Friday. From my hotel, it took about an hour to get here but it was so well worth it.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about this particular beach πŸ– if you are thinking of visiting Hawaii in the near future.

Wow- Akaka Falls is amazing 😻!

Rarely, nowadays, do you come across something that truly takes your breath away! Well, for me, that time has come – ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Akaka Falls: youtube.com/watch

It totally exceeded my expectations. Such a great experience all around. It was time well spent driving the 2.5 hours, through the beautiful mountains of Hilo, to see this great sight! 😍 It left such of a lasting impression on me that I will look for places where there are waterfalls in order to book future vacations.

As part of my travel experiences, I look for excursions that I have never done before. This was one of those type of excursions. I have heard a saying before that, you only live once but if you do it right, once is enough. I certainly subscribe to that philosophy! πŸ˜€πŸ™πŸ‘πŸ™Œ

Hope that you enjoy the video and make sure t lo check this blog for more travel journeys! Have a wonderful day πŸ˜€πŸ™Œβ€οΈ

I have provided a little touch of summer in the springtime here: youtube.com/watch

The video contains some ocean views from my time visiting Kona, Hawaii. It features a paddle boarding couple out in the wonderful ocean on a nice beautiful day. Such a shot of vacation bliss that I think we all could use.

Ocean Eyes πŸ‘€ in Hawaii πŸŒΈπŸŒŠπŸ– 🏝

It is so very easy to have ocean eyes in Hawaii 😎! So many great views to see!it was literally a heaven on earth 🌎. This particular video is from the beach located outside of the Hilton Waikoloa resort that I stayed in during my vacation on last month.

It honestly felt so great to be out and about after a tough year that 2020 was. I took so many pictures and videos, so there will be more to share. I look forward to more adventures on this year, it certainly will all depend on the vaccine rollout and the requirements for travel that will come out as a result.

From not being able to travel for over a year, I have a renewed sense of appreciation for it. I certainly will never take it for granted. It is in fact a magnificent luxury to be able to do so. I count myself as having been blessed to travel.

Enjoy the video that I have uploaded to YouTube. Feel free to reach out if Hawaii is in your destination plans in the near future.

Some of my best paths in life have always led to the beach πŸ– 😻🏝

There is just something about the beach that provides an automatic relaxation feel.😎 We visit once or many times and cannot wait to visit again. Whether it is the sound of the rushing waves, sand between your toes, or the beautiful sky above, being at the beach gives you the peace within that we desperately long for!

One of the beaches that I visited recently was the Punalu’u Black Sand Beach in Hawaii. First time that I have ever seen black sand on a beach but it was quite cool to the touch on a hot day, like the one captured on the video below. Black sand contains minerals that does not allow if to get hot like white sand. I was able to pick up the sand and look at the beautiful crystals that were on full display.

It was quite a beautiful beach – as you will see below. Cannot wait to visit this beach or any beach, for that matter, πŸ– again! πŸ˜‚ youtube.com/watch

Another Day in Hawaiian 🌺 Paradise 🌞 πŸ– 🌴

Just another day in paradise as the old adage says – and truly this was. This was the reason why I got into traveling in the first place – to see this marvelous world that we live in! It doesn’t matter where you go, travel has a way of instantly making you speechless and a storyteller all at the same time πŸ˜€!

Such as was the case with beautiful Hawaii – the first trip since the start of the pandemic 😷! This bucket list travel destination clearly stands as number one out of all the various locations that I have visited.

One of the reasons for that is captured in the following video that I have shared below. It was taken at the Hilton Waikoloa Village located on the Big Island 🏝 of Hawaii! I hope that you enjoy 😊!

Chasing waterfalls – so beautiful 😻

So I need to start this post by saying that I have not seen anything in my life as magnificent as seeing a waterfall in person. 😎 Cooler than I ever thought it would be. While vacationing in Hawaii a couple of weeks ago, I traveled to Hilo, Hawaii to behold this wonderful sight.

When arriving at the park, there was a lot of rain 🌧. Unfortunately, there was not a way to drive to the waterfall πŸ˜‚- I had to hike there. This afforded me the opportunity to observe the gorgeous vegetation enroute to the waterfall.

One of the beautiful waterfalls observed on that day was the Akaka Waterfall. I have included a video of this waterfall below. It was quite a wonder to observe. If you have never seen one in person, please do yourself a favor and visit one on your travels. Since my first experience, I will definitely be on the lookout for waterfall destinations in the future. Definitely will not miss an opportunity to chase waterfalls as I continue to cover the earth 🌍 πŸ˜ƒ

Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations 😎 πŸ–πŸŒ΄

Since vaccines are being rolled out now to almost everyone, there is a renewed optimism about life getting back to normal very soon. I certainly experienced this optimism while traveling to Hawaii two weeks ago. Planes were packed, airports were packed and I saw a great number of people at the resorts that I visited.

What a true quote! Even during the difficult roads of 2020, we truly never know what destinations are around the corner.πŸ˜ƒ Hawaii was my first trip of 2021 and it was such a dream destination. It had been the number one location on my list for many years, but, of course, it costs a small fortune to be able to go. Thankfully, I was able to book this trip at a serious discount on last year – prior to COVID vaccines being rolled out!

One of the resorts was the KingsLand’ – Waikoloa Village Resort in Hawaii. This resort was wonderful- it is now a timeshare community with spacious condominiums. This resort looked packed to capacity and it had some of the most amazing views.

One of these views that I would like to share is attached below. You can quickly get a great idea of the lush accommodations that are there onsite from the video. I was thoroughly impressed and it exceeded my expectations!
