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!

Summer Vibes Loading ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ–๐ŸŽ‰

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 ๐ŸŒบ 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 ๐Ÿ– so I look forward to more beach adventures, as the countdown to summer has officially begun.

Walking into the weekend on Punaluโ€™u Beach ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐ŸŒด

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 ๐Ÿคฉ.

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 ๐Ÿ– 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 ๐Ÿ– if you are thinking of visiting Hawaii in the near future.

Some of my best paths in life have always led to the beach ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ

There is just something about the beach that provides an automatic relaxation feel.๐Ÿ˜Ž 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, ๐Ÿ– again! ๐Ÿ˜‚ youtube.com/watch

Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒด

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.๐Ÿ˜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 KingsLandโ€™ – 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!
