Waterfall Vibes – Unbelievable πŸ€©β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½!

How I love chasing waterfalls 😍! Made popular by the 90s group, TLC – chasing waterfalls has been on folks minds ever since then. I have always wanted to see them for the first time, up close and personal, just to see what all of the hype is about. Boy, was I very happy that I did – the view was amazing:. youtube.com/shorts/oXI7-2IIItE

This sight was just phenomenal🀩. I could not believe my own eyes. Such a wonderful sight. If you haven’t seen a waterfall, make sure you plan to do so. It could be as massive as this one or even smaller than the one above. The great thing about Hawaii is that waterfalls abound almost on every single island 🏝.

This particular one is called Akaka Falls and it is located in the Akaka Falls State Park in Hilo, Hawaii. Hilo is at a higher elevation than the rest of the Big Island 🏝 of Hawaii, so get ready for mountain elevation. The air tends to be a lot thinner in the mountains πŸ” as I discovered when hiking to see this waterfall πŸ˜‚. I was panting a lot – since I was not accustomed to higher elevations.

It was an adventure that I would absolutely do again. I always love to see new places and experience new things. Certainly some the great opportunities that travel affords you!

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

Bad Guy Vibes-Hawaii Style🌺😎!

Nothing like a great performanceπŸ˜ƒ! Especially when it involves fire πŸ”₯. 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 talentedπŸ˜ƒ! I shudder to think how many times he might have gotten burned doing this πŸ˜‚ but he has perfected his trade πŸ˜ƒ. 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 timeπŸ˜ƒ. This was so much of a great, rich experience πŸ˜ƒ. 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.

All aboard to the Na Pali CoastπŸ›³πŸŒΊπŸ˜Ž!

If you have never been to the Na Pali Coast, you are in for a treat πŸ˜ƒ! 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 πŸ˜‚! 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!

Perfect Views from Paradise 🌺🌴🌴!

Paradise was found on earth while visiting the beautiful island of Kauai πŸ˜ƒ! I had a great opportunity to experience a luau for the first time in my life. What an experience it was! I was joined by a few of my closest friends who also wanted to experience this. Here are the beautiful views and vibes captured in this video: youtube.com/shorts/awWWNp4hicY

Out of all of the times that I envisioned what Kauai would be like, views like these, blew my perceptions out the window. As you can see from the video, it almost looks like a vivid, vibrant dream 😴. The colors are absolutely perfect especially with the backdrop of the mountains right behind it. So very impressive πŸ˜ƒ.

This video was captured right before the luau festivities began. So we are all in eager anticipation of attending the luau while taking in the beauty that was all around us. I almost wished at that time that I could stay right there for the rest of my life πŸ˜‚. Of course, reality kicked in and that thought went away from my mind.

That really is the appeal, in and of itself, of vacation. A place that blocks out our ordinary life and provides a temporary break from that life to fantasize about a new life that you could enjoy. I firmly believe that vacation time should be interwoven in our health insurance πŸ˜‚. The relief that it provides contributes to our overall well being!

I will share additional videos from my recent experience on my blog and on my social media accounts. Feel free to follow me there and here. πŸ˜ƒ

OMG 😳 – Aloha Friday VibesπŸ˜ŽπŸπŸ–

Aloha Friday to you all! Hope that everyone had a wonderful week and that you are all looking forward, as I am, to the weekend.πŸ˜ƒ How I love the wonderful song 🎡 “Everybody’s working for the weekend”. So much truth is that song . Even more compelling is working for the next vacation πŸ˜‚! Here is a great example of how vacationing soothes the soul: youtube.com/shorts/KViwW32NtD8

Hope that you enjoyed the video. This is Punalu’u Beach which is located in Kona, Hawaii. What instantly stands out is the black sand which is just magnificent! Very cool to the touch and so beautiful 🀩. On this particular day, these views were the calm before a big storm which would happen about 10 minutes later.

Matter of fact, the storm β›ˆ got so severe that I ended my trip there and headed back to the hotel 🏨. I had planned to visit the Kilauea Volcano which was about 30 minutes away. It was so disappointing at the time but thankfully I got a chance to visit this beach πŸ–, and the volcano, in sunnier weather later in the week.

With Spring Break right around the corner, I encourage everyone to book some time to get away from it all, whether in Hawaii or someplace close to home πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ!

Live Your LifeπŸ˜Šβ€οΈπŸ™Œ!

“Live Your Life” is a great motto for todayπŸ˜ƒ! We all want to make the most out of life because life is certainly so fleeting. We have become so much more aware of this fact, living in a pandemic world 🌎. The dilemma is determining what is most valuable in life: experiences or possessions or maybe both? I would love to have more possessions but experiences last a lot longer πŸ˜‚! Case in point, is this experience at a wonderful resort: youtube.com/shorts/TPzKKA8XmrU

That was the view that I saw from my window, every morning that I walked out on the balcony. Absolutely perfect views for a wonderful hotel 🏨. This is the Ocean Tower located on the grounds of the Hilton Waikoloa Village. If you have followed this blog for some time, you would have noticed various videos from this balcony on previous posts.

I really appreciate beautiful experiences such as these. These experiences makes me want to have more experiences like these in the future. Alas, there is so many places and so little time 😊. Which means that prioritization is absolutely the key πŸ”‘.

There were years in which I did not travel because, unfortunately, I did not realize the importance of forward planning for the vacation. My planning would consist of waiting until close to the week that I wanted to go on vacation and then attempt to book travel. Of course, at that time, everything is very expensive and out of my price range. Only when I started to plan for vacation and booked travel arrangements months before, did I start going on vacation.

Hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will check this blog, early and often, for new travel adventures! πŸ˜ƒ

Absolutely love the views here πŸ€©πŸ™Œ

I absolutely love beautiful resort views.😎Quite nothing at all like it. If you are a fan of beautiful views, you might want to take a look at this one:youtube.com/shorts/wzJ7bSNTHYc

Whether you are a golf fan or not, this is truly incredible ❀️. This view was captured at the Kings’ Landing Hotel in Kona, Hawaii. The hotel itself was surrounded by so many tropical views. You could literally take pictures everywhere here.

The golf ⛳️ course is one of the best that I have seen in a paradise location. I must say that I did not, unfortunately, get a chance to play at the golf course but I would love to go back again to play a few links!

Hope that you enjoy the beautiful video. If you get a chance to visit this gorgeous place, you will have an absolute blast πŸ’₯! The Big Island of Hawaii is worth the tripπŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ.

Beautiful DestinationπŸ˜ŽπŸŒ΄πŸ˜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 🌎. 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 πŸ˜‚! 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 πŸ˜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 πŸ€”? 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!

Summer Vibes Loading πŸ˜»πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸŽ‰

Summer vibes are right around the corner. Just posted a video to get you in the summer mood: youtube.com/shorts/S1MVC9X-HME

This is a video from the Kailua Bay located in Downtown Kona, Hawaii. These excellent vibes provided a much needed refresher from the Hawaiian 🌺 sun. As summer gets closer (officially a little less than one week away), beaches like these will undoubtedly be crowded.

It is certainly a great time to remind everyone about the need to apply sunscreen in the hot weather. So needed on those beach days where you are spending enormous amounts of time out in the sun.

My best paths in life have always led to the beach πŸ– so I look forward to more beach adventures, as the countdown to summer has officially begun.
