Hula 🌺Vibes for Good Friday!

Happy Good Friday to one and allπŸ˜ƒ! What a great Friday to be alive and what a wonderful end to another week. If you have ever visited a luau or even if you have not, you are sure to enjoy this video: youtube.com/shorts/L-s-neTrA-E

Hope that you liked this video! πŸ˜€ It was so amazing to be able to see this live and in person. The dancers were just so very talented. The great thing about visiting the beautiful island of Kauai is that they have luaus and fire shows virtually everywhere, especially since Covid restrictions are starting to get more relaxed 😎.

On this particular day, I was visiting the Coconut Marketplace in East Kauai, when I heard some beautiful music and I saw a crowd of people congregating around a stage in the center of the marketplace. Since I am very curious, I thought that I would follow the music 🎢. In doing so, I found these beautiful hula dancers and singers.

The music was so very beautiful 🀩 and of course the dancing was top notch also!πŸ˜ƒ It was honestly just great to be outside and around other people again – mask freeπŸ˜ƒ! From visiting the island 🏝, I developed more of an appreciation for the people, food and the beautiful culture!

Feel free to visit this blog, early and often for more travel adventures! Looking forward to more and more travel days ahead.

Sailing the Seas of Paradise β›΅οΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ

Paradise has absolutely never looked better than the shores of Kauai!! If you have followed this blog for some time, you have seen the recent videos that I have taken from aboard the Na Pali Sunset Cruise 🚒. After many travels, there are few things that gets you excited and amazed all at once. There are also few things that make you in awe of what you are seeing. Well, ladies in gentlemen, this video and others taken that day, left me speechless 😢 and that is totally hard to do: youtube.com/shorts/1bIHv8-NN8g

Would have loved to be able to explore that coast just a little bit more. I was impressed seeing the beautiful mountains and the seas. Felt as if I was having an out of body experience. πŸ˜‚ I would recommend taking this tour for anyone looking to have some fun on vacation in a very safe environment. Safety protocols were followed every step of the way and everyone went home safely after the cruise was over.

Cruising has always been a favorite past time for me. I was glad to have added this location to my list and I am looking forward to adding additional locations as I continue to travel. It goes totally without saying that this has been the best experience so far.

Hope that you are enjoying this blog and the beautiful videos that I am sharing. I look forward to sharing more in the near future πŸ˜€!

Aloha Vibes for the Weekend 😎🌸🏝!

Nothing like beautiful vibes and views for the weekend!😎 No doubt, the premier way to spend a weekend is going to a place that you have never been or going to a familiar place that you have been before. One of the best trips that I have taken was visiting the island of Kauai. If you peruse the articles of my blog, you will definitely see countless videos about Hawaii amongst other beautiful locations and countries. Here is a great video of one of the absolute best places that you can visit while you are visiting the island of Kauai: youtube.com/shorts/ZoTMr10urZs

This magnificent location was captured on the beautiful property where the Smith’s Luau was held. It was an absolute dream place to visit, as you can tell from the video. This view is the epitome of why people take vacations. Certainly a perfect way to spend a weekend or any other day during the week.

This property consists of acres and acres of pure fun 🀩! Almost wish that I could have just stayed at a hotel there to be able to explore that grounds a lot more. The place even has an amphitheater and a trolley 🚎 πŸ˜‚. Gives you an idea of just how vast this property is! Whenever you visit Kauai, make this place a must visit! πŸ˜ƒ

Waterfall Chaser πŸ˜ƒπŸ’¦πŸ’¦πŸ

Who doesn’t like chasing waterfalls? Until I visited Hawaii recently, I did not know how much I would love ❀️ chasing waterfallsπŸ˜ƒ! They are so majestic and the sounds are so relaxing 😎. Waterfalls are absolutely one of the beautiful wonders of nature. Getting outside and chasing waterfalls really gives me a rush. Here is a beautiful video of Akaka Falls, located in the the Akaka Falls State Park: youtube.com/shorts/0dVk-xZ_t-k

I hope that you enjoyed the videoπŸ˜ƒ! I am hoping that you enjoy it enough that you are considering even going to see it for yourselfπŸ™Œ. Once you visit one, you cannot wait to go visit another. As I captured this video, my mouth was wide open the entire time, 😳 in total disbelief of what I was seeing.

Imagine observing a giant that is standing in front of you. It is thousands of feet tall and just massiveπŸ˜€. You feel like an ant 🐜 compared to the size of the giant. That is pretty much how you feel in the presence of one of these awesome wonders. It also makes you realize that there are beautiful things in this world 🌎 that leaves you speechless at the time and makes you a storyteller from then on. I look forward to seeing more things as I cover the earth 🌍 before it covers me.

Please follow this blog for more adventuresπŸ˜ƒ! I love to travel and share unbelievable content with everyone. Who knows, maybe sometime along the way, I will encourage you all to work, vacation and repeat also πŸ™Œ

Hawaii Pool Vibes😎🏝🌸🏝!

I absolutely love pools and what could be better than pool vibes in Hawaii!😎This resort was just what the doctor ordered. This resort is called the Sheraton Coconut Beach Resort in Kauai. Love the great vibrations that I was feeling here: I have attached a short video to provide an idea of the beautiful vibes that this hotel had ti offer: youtube.com/shorts/CzPVeJFOaCU

Who would not want to stay here? It is absolutely beautiful and you can tell, from the video, that folks were having an extremely great time!😎 Pool and Beach views at this hotel were all just next level. When I travel, it is always my goal to boldly go, where I have not gone before – just like Star Trek!

If you are thinking of visiting Kauai in the near future, this is most certainly your place to stay. Surrounding areas have all of the shops and restaurants that you would want to see, in addition to experiencing a lot of the tourist locations and learning about the Hawaiian 🌺 culture.

From the video, you can see that this place is an absolute dream 😴. The amenities are top notch and the landscape is meticulously manicured in and around the hotel. You will definitely be glad that you visited this gorgeous hotel. Make sure to check the ratings to make sure that it meets your expectations!

Living My Best LifeπŸ˜ŽπŸŒΊβ›΅οΈβ›΅οΈ!

Living my best life is always the goal ! Traveling to exciting places and seeing a whole new world 🌎, makes living life worthwhile πŸ˜€. After visiting one location, I look forward to visiting another, soon thereafter! Here is just a glimpse of the fun that I had: youtube.com/shorts/tU3-ynUbwjY

As you can tell, these families were having a total blast πŸ’₯! I was enjoying all of the whale 🐳 and dolphin 🐬 watching. This was a cruise of a lifetime. I have never been on a more exciting cruise 🚒 in my life.

This is the first time I had been on a whale and dolphin watching cruise. It was just totally amazing 🀩! I have been on many cruises before (check out my blog to see more) πŸ˜‚, but this cruise 🚒 was absolutely superb.

Kauai can be characterized as just superb also πŸ˜€. Trust me, if you visit this beautiful location, you will not want to go home πŸ˜‚. I wanted to become a resident after visiting for less than a week. It is such an easy going place, the main highway has a speed limit of 25 miles per hour πŸ˜‚. Cannot get any more easy going than that!

Living on the EdgeπŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸŒ΄πŸŒ΄!

Living on the edge has never felt better πŸ˜€! Taking a trip to an unbelievable place is definitely rewarding and provides a respite from normal life. I have attached a link to a video that was captured from onboard a catamaran as the crew and I are sailing ⛡️ along the coast of Kauai: youtube.com/shorts/hfCorsdWvIk

It just so happened to be a beautiful day and a spectacular one for sailing ⛡️. Even during an almost 6 hour tour, it just did not seem long enough. Just wanted to experience more whale 🐳 and dolphin 🐬 watching, in addition to taking in more views and vibes of the ocean and mountains from the boat πŸ›₯ tour.

It has been said that you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. There is lot of truth in that statement. You only get one chance at life without the ability to do it over again. Vacation always reminds me of the importance of stopping to smell the roses 🌹, as you walk the path of life.

Attempting to get to the edge of the catamaran was tricky, because all of the water made the deck slippery. Thankfully πŸ˜… I did not get dangerously close to the edge to capture the views. My goal on vacation, is to make sure that all the fun 🀩 is accomplished without the danger ⛔️ πŸ˜‚. Arrive alive and leave better than you came!

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will plan to vacation here or somewhere else this year. Especially with things looking a whole lot better on the travel front from a Covid 19 perspective πŸ˜€! Happy sails and trails πŸ˜ŽπŸ™ŒπŸ‘‹!

Sailing on the Na Pali CoastπŸ˜Žβ›΅οΈπŸβ˜€οΈ!

Until visiting Kauai this month, I had never been on a subset catamaran tour. Full disclosure, I had never been on a catamaran ever πŸ˜‚! I have seen rich celebrities, on tv, aboard these but have never had the experience. If you ever sail on one of these boats, the best views are in the front. You can see why, by viewing this video: youtube.com/shorts/cFN1IrzTijQ

Spectacular views indeed and I am thankful for the experience! Part of traveling for me, is trying something new. That being said, I am not afraid to open myself up to brand new experiences. I was greatly rewarded for my courage because the Na Pali Sunset Cruise in Kauai was just what the doctor ordered.πŸ˜ƒ

It was by far the best cruise that I have taken to date. If you have followed this blog, you know how much of a cruiser I am. I could possibly work for the cruise industry at this point in time πŸ˜‚. I truly love being on the water πŸ’¦ as often as possible. In fact, most of the excursions, on trips that I have taken, involved water in some way, shape or form.

This particular excursion, as the name implies, is 6 hour in duration and one of the only ways to view the Na Pali Coast. On land, it would take forever, by air, it would be expensive etc. Seeing the dolphins and whales are worth the price of the tour alone! The bonus views are the mountains that looks like you’re in Jurassic Park and the beautiful water πŸ’¦.

Hope that you enjoy the video and will make your plans to go to Kauai and take this tour! You will thank me later πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ

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

Waimea Canyon Views-OMG🀩!

If you have never been to Waimea Canyon, run, not walk to visit πŸ˜‚! It is an incredible place and I got a chance to visit on last week. Here is a view from the lookout point, hope that you enjoy this as much as I did capturing it:youtube.com/shorts/96hD68Zc08I

I have never been to the Grand Canyon but I have heard that it is a lot like this view but less colorful πŸ˜ƒ. This beautiful canyon is located on the beautiful island 🏝 of Kauai, Hawaii in the city of Waimea. The Waimea Canyon State Park has a lookout point and trails for hiking πŸ₯Ύ.

I don’t mind telling you that I have never seen views such as these in any of my previous travels before. I was completely blown away by the spectacular colors and the vastness of the canyon. Visiting Kauai, as I mentioned before in a previous post, was otherworldly, almost as if you were on a different planet altogether.

In order to get to the lookout point on the top of Waimea Canyon, you have to drive about an hour from the base of the canyon to reach the top. The elevation of the canyon is 3,400 feet and you totally feel it as you are going up the canyon and hiking on the trails.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you will follow this blog to see more travel adventures πŸ˜€!
