Waterfall Magic from Hawaii ๐Ÿ’ฆ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Akaka Falls State Park is as an absolute dream ๐Ÿ˜ด. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‚! This particular day, I braved the very heavy rain ๐ŸŒง 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ 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! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ

For Infinity and Beyond ๐Ÿคฉ

Lovely views are made to be shared๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I appreciate every time that I have the opportunity to travel and see views that I have never seen before. Most trips that I have taken within the last few years, have been to tropical ๐ŸŒด locations. These trips have provided picture perfect views like this one: youtube.com/shorts/qkJuymFrSVA

It is so very lovely to be able to see this first hand. The beautiful colors of the rocks with the contrast of the beautiful water is just heavenly. Absolutely love travel from infinity and beyond ๐Ÿ˜‚. This breathtaking view is courtesy of Kona, Hawaii – which I had the pleasure of visiting.

Nothing quite like waking up in a place that you have never been. Since I am more of a morning person, I particularly love the early morning sunrises and the beautiful walks along the ocean shore. I truly believe that these early morning moments provide the start to a calm, still, peaceful day๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Hope that you’ve enjoyed the video above and that you visit this blog, early and often, for new travel adventures!

Paradise Found-Omg๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Island views are the best views, bar none! ๐Ÿ˜Š My last few vacations have been to tropical locations. Here is one of the best beaches that I have ever visited: youtube.com/shorts/4cgoEGbEgxM

Hope that you appreciate the beauty of this spectacular video. The contrast of black sand and blue water is just exceptional. Looking at this video takes me instantly back to sitting on the beach ๐Ÿ–. Especially experiencing such a cool day at home on today.

This is definitely paradise and I am so glad that I found it on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was so very impressive and a must visit if you are looking for vacation options in 2022. If you are thinking of visiting the Big Island of Hawaii soon, be sure to check out other posts like these on my blog.

Beautiful Destination๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations! This was certainly the case going through all of the travel restrictions in 2020 and waiting for that next travel adventure. Thankfully, it was Hawaii, one of the most beautiful destinations in the world ๐ŸŒŽ. While riding as a passenger, I captured this incredible stroll along the coastline in downtown Kona, Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/86mIOxgIlWE

If only I can see views like these every day ๐Ÿ˜‚! These are views that you cannot wait to see when you get there and views you cannot wait to share once you have left. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the reason why you travel ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. There are so many places to see and just so little time to see them.

This particular stroll was part of a sight seeing tour that I booked while vacationing there in Kona. This tour took you through downtown Kona, to a coffee farm (Kona has the best coffee), to a hometown bakery, a black sand beach (I have videos on my blog) and lastly the tour took us to the only active volcano on the Hawaiian Islands, Mount Kilauea.

If all that was not enough, the tour provided lunch and dinner. Pretty impressive huh ๐Ÿค”? I thought so and would happily do this tour again to soak in more of the spectacular views. I highly recommend doing this tour to see all there is to Kona.

The island is truly remarkable and it has made me even more of a fan of Hawaii. Truly in a class by itself for vacations!

New Years Eve 2021: Travel Highlights ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ

Final countdown to the end of the year. We are literally hours away from the start of a brand new year, 2022. No matter what we were expecting in 2021, the year in so many ways, exceeded some and fell woefully short of expectations. Here is some travel highlights from the past year: youtube.com/shorts/ycMXtiBRVw0

Hawaii was incredible and as you can tell from earlier posts, it was the best travel location by far. The gorgeous views cannot be replicated, it lays claim to its own picture perfect view of paradise. Hopefully some, if not all of you, had an opportunity to travel somewhere during the course of 2021. If not, hopefully 2022 will be a better year for travel.

Beaches are some of my favorite places to visit. All of the beaches in this video, were taken in Hawaii. I never seen a beach that I have not liked but these beaches are next level. I plan to visit another Hawaiian island on next year to experience even more of the LiveAloha experience.

Hopefully you enjoy the video above and that you will visit this blog early and often in the new year for other travel adventures! ๐Ÿ˜†

Paradise Found – Black Sand Beach ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ–

If you have never seen a black sand beach before, take a look at this beauty: youtube.com/shorts/DuYuHBMULK8

I love the great contrast between the sand and the blue water๐Ÿ˜ƒ. What a spectacular day it was to be there also. I was particularly grateful on this day because on my previous visit to this beach, it was raining cats and dogs ๐Ÿ˜‚. I had no other choice but to leave because the weather was so bad.

On my trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, I was looking forward to having this experience. I could not wait to experience this for myself. The sand was so cool to the touch, if it was possible to take some of the sand back to me, I would have, just as a great souvenir!

After going to my first black sand beach, I am now looking for opportunities to go to other black sand beaches! They are so beautiful and an awesome wonder. I will need to visit the Big Island again to see if I can visit a green sand beach ๐Ÿ–. Imagine how cool that would be!

Views for Days and Nights โ˜€๏ธ ๐ŸŒ

Sometimes when you are feeling just a little creative, you start editing pictures and video to more accurately capture the beautiful moment that is appearing before your eyes. I felt that way when I captured the following video: youtube.com/shorts/PwwbjIln_eQ

When you are not accustomed to views like these on a daily or nightly basis, creativity takes over ๐Ÿ˜‚. It is for that reason that I never take for granted the opportunity to travel because it is definitely a luxury. Nothing makes me feel more closer to myself and to the world.

This particular beauty was captured from the balcony of the Hilton Waikoloa Village- Ocean Tower. What a wonderful stay this was. I will always remember it because I was awaken by the birds ๐Ÿฆ… chirping every morning ๐Ÿ˜ƒ which was pretty cool. No matter where I have traveled before in the world ๐ŸŒŽ, that has never been my experience.

I hope that you enjoy the above video and that you have a great day! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ocean Eyes – Tropical ๐Ÿ  ๐ŸŒดMood

Ocean views are the best views by far ๐Ÿ˜Ž! 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 soul๐Ÿ™Œ. 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 ๐ŸŒด.

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 richer๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™Œ!

Vacation Mode on ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ!

Nothing like going on a nice, relaxing vacation. Vacationing is chicken soup for your mind, body and soul ๐Ÿ˜‚! I experienced this form of self love while visiting the Big Island of Hawaii. Here is a video of Kailua Bay, which is located in Downtown Kona on the Big Island: youtube.com/shorts/8yJb3p5M6hU

I love watching the waves gently hitting the shoreline. This provide such a welcome break from the mundane, day to day life that we often experience. Nothing quite like getting away. Travel truly provides mental health therapy that is so needed in the stressful times that we live in.

If you are looking to experience peace and quiet, look no further than downtown Kona. I highly recommend this great scenery along with the wonderful restaurants, novelty shops and of course the beautiful people that make everything else so worthwhile. ๐Ÿ˜€

Ocean ๐ŸŒŠ Vibes – Views for days ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒด

Check out the Ocean Vibes here in Downtown Kona: youtube.com/watch definite views for days๐Ÿ˜Š

The oceans in Kona are such a beautiful color of blue. I have been to many tropical places in Belize, Mexico, Jamaica etc. but I can definitely say that these ocean waters are much better.

I hope that you enjoy this view as much as I did cruising by it. Consider the Big Island of Hawaii in your summer plans.
