Spectacular Luau Views๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ!

Luau vibes are excellent๐Ÿ˜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 ๐Ÿค”? 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. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Message in a Bottle Vibes๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ”

Sailing is one of my favorite past times. ๐Ÿ˜ŠOnce I retire one of these days, I look forward to life cruising around the world ๐ŸŒŽ as I venture on even more vacations. In the meantime, I plan to work, travel and repeat as many times as possible ๐Ÿ˜‚. Here is a short video from a recent sailing adventure – hold on tight ๐Ÿ˜Š: 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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘!

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 ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Happy Motherโ€™s Dayโค๏ธโค๏ธ!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the true beautiful treasures of the world ๐ŸŒŽ. Having been blessed with a great mother, I can never underestimate the power of a mother’s influence on a life๐Ÿ˜Š. A mother’s love and affection can never be minimized.

One of the things that Mom (and Dad) passed on to me was the desire to travel to new locations. We used to take summer trips in the car to various locations. I remember how cool it was to see a new place that I had never seen before ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. It was almost as if I was in a different country. Here is a great video, that I had to share, which gave me the same vibe as when I was a kid: youtube.com/shorts/N3PPLNdQZH8

Hope that you enjoyed this video. This was the first video that I captured after landing in Hawaii. It was jaw dropping and will be forever burned in my mind. Little did I know how much adventure awaited me during this entire trip!

Tropical ๐ŸŒด Vibes for the Weekend ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Tropical vibes are the best vibes ๐Ÿ˜Š! I love traveling to tropical places and experiencing tropical adventures๐Ÿ˜ƒ. For me, I could retire on a tropical island somewhere and live happily ever after. That’s my retirement plan for sure ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 away๐Ÿ˜ƒ. 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.

Waterfall Vibes – So Amazing ๐Ÿคฉ!

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 beings๐Ÿ˜Š! 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 ๐Ÿ˜… 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 sure๐Ÿ˜ƒ! 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 ๐ŸŒŽ. 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 ๐ŸŒŽ to chase additional waterfalls in the near future!

Nature Views from Kauai ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Smith’s Grotto is definitely a must see ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! ! It is a wonderful place to visit during any Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ 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!๐Ÿ˜ƒ 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 โค๏ธ! It was such a joy to visit this place and I am glad to be able to share it with everyone.

Bad Guy Vibes-Hawaii Style๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Nothing like a great performance๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Especially when it involves fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ. 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 talented๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I shudder to think how many times he might have gotten burned doing this ๐Ÿ˜‚ but he has perfected his trade ๐Ÿ˜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 time๐Ÿ˜ƒ. This was so much of a great, rich experience ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Turns out that these type of shows are a part of the luau experience and is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ 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.

Happy Earth Day ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Happy Earth Day to one and all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! 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 ๐ŸŒ 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 ๐Ÿ”ฅ. 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!

Na Pali Sea Adventures๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ƒโ›ต๏ธโ›ต๏ธ!

The sea helps me be me ๐Ÿ˜‚! Cruising is quickly becoming a favorite past time for me. Once I return from a cruise, wherever it is, I soon make plans to embark on another adventure ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I spent the majority of my life not really cruising at all. It is really within the past 4 years that I have really started taking cruises. If you have followed this blog for a while, you know that there was a period of time that I questioned whether or not cruising could be fun. Which means that even if you have not taken cruises in the past, there are present and future opportunities to give it a try๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Admittedly, most of my cruise experiences have taken place aboard a Carnival Cruise ๐Ÿšข. So when I recently visited Kauai, I was not sure of what to expect onboard the Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise. I had never been on a catamaran before, so I was not sure what the experience would be like. Wow, was I amazed from this experience! I have captured some of it here (hang on ๐Ÿ˜‚): youtube.com/shorts/Zn4zhPoex0A

Isn’t that just incredible? The catamaran was a little slippery so I had to make sure to balance myself while capturing these spectacular views. Views like these are why travel makes you speechless and a storyteller all at the same time. It was almost like an out of body experience ๐Ÿ˜‚- could not believe my own eyes ๐Ÿ‘€.

If you are looking for a wonderful trip just to get away from it all, this is the place to visit. I would go back here in a heartbeat ๐Ÿ’“. I had so much fun on the cruise and on the island ๐Ÿ as a whole. You will absolutely love the fun and the experiences that this beautiful location has to offer! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Whale Watching Adventures ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒบ!

Every once in a while, you get to experience things that you have never seen or done before in your life. I remember my first flight ever, my first international flight, my first job etc. One of the things that I love about travel is that for the most part, it is an opportunity for these type of things to happen. There is a whole world out there that most of us have only seen a fraction of but we are aspiring to see much more.

Ladies, gentlemen and kids – I was completely blown away from having my first whale watching experience. I sat there with my mouth open while within a few yards or so, there were whales frolicking about in the water ๐Ÿ˜‚! Thankfully, I captured this experience on my camera and here it is: youtube.com/shorts/3qHo8PXBQx8

Did you see that huge tail ๐Ÿ˜ณ? I was astounded ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and could not believe my own eyes ๐Ÿ‘€. This is totally stuff that you see on tv, but surely not with your own eyes ๐Ÿ‘€? Yes, I got to see with my own eyes these colossal creatures. If there is an experience that tops that, I have yet to see it.๐Ÿ˜Š

This expedition was part of the Na Pali Sunset Cruise excursion located in Kauai, Hawaii. If you are ever interested in booking this tour, please do so on Trip Advisor. As you cruise, you will experience wonderful sights (like these) and sounds that will take your breath away!๐Ÿ˜ƒ
