Luau vibes are excellent😃! 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 🤔? 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. 😃
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 😂. 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 🏖 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 😂.
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 😂. 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 🙌👏!
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 😂. 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 😃!
Tropical vibes are the best vibes 😊! I love traveling to tropical places and experiencing tropical adventures😃. For me, I could retire on a tropical island somewhere and live happily ever after. That’s my retirement plan for sure 😂. 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 away😃. 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.
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 😅 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 sure😃! 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!
Smith’s Grotto is definitely a must see 😃! ! 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!😃 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 especially when you are on a magnificent vacation of your dreams 😃. 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 😅 I succeeded 😂. It was a little on the slippery side and of course, the boat was moving pretty fast 😃. 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 😂. 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.😃 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!😃
Nothing like a great performance😃! Especially when it involves fire 🔥. I did not know that I was a fan of fire shows until I saw my first fire show in Hawaii. If you have never been to one of these shows, do yourself a favor and sign up for one. I was very fortunate to have this performance at the hotel that I was staying in. Here is just a glimpse of that performance: youtube.com/shorts/E3U5e_Lz6Es
This guy is just talented😃! I shudder to think how many times he might have gotten burned doing this 😂 but he has perfected his trade 😃. The name of the fire show is called the Ahi Uila Fire Show and it can be booked from the Hilton Garden Inn in Kauai. Hawaii.
I really had an awesome time😃. This was so much of a great, rich experience 😃. Turns out that these type of shows are a part of the luau experience and is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian 🌺 culture.
If you would like to see more of this phenomenal fire show, I have additional blog posts and videos that I have recently posted. If you enjoy this one, you will surely enjoy the other blog posts as well.
If you have never been to the Na Pali Coast, you are in for a treat 😃! After cruising for some time, this was one of the best views that I have ever seen. If you have looked at other posts that I have included in my blog, you will be amazed at those views, in addition to this one:. youtube.com/shorts/Z6MajNM4-Ys
Just imagine seeing this view, up close and personal. It was truly breathtaking, to say the least😊. As I have shared before on this blog, if you are interested in this cruise 🚢, feel free to book this cruise through Trip Advisor. It is called the “Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise”. I highly recommend booking this cruise, should your travel plans take you to Kauai, Hawaii.
The cruise is taken onboard a catamaran, which happened to be the first time that I was onboard one. I have seen many on television but this expedition was my first experience. Having had most of my experience onboard Carnival Cruises, I was a little hesitant regarding this cruise – since it was a much smaller ship.
Turns out, my fears were totally unfounded 😂! It was such a smooth ride and I enjoyed the whole experience. Hope that you will make your plans to book the Na Pali Sunset Cruise in the foreseeable future!
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!
