Another Day in Hawaiian 🌺 Paradise 🌞 πŸ– 🌴

Just another day in paradise as the old adage says – and truly this was. This was the reason why I got into traveling in the first place – to see this marvelous world that we live in! It doesn’t matter where you go, travel has a way of instantly making you speechless and a storyteller all at the same time πŸ˜€!

Such as was the case with beautiful Hawaii – the first trip since the start of the pandemic 😷! This bucket list travel destination clearly stands as number one out of all the various locations that I have visited.

One of the reasons for that is captured in the following video that I have shared below. It was taken at the Hilton Waikoloa Village located on the Big Island 🏝 of Hawaii! I hope that you enjoy 😊!

Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations 😎 πŸ–πŸŒ΄

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.πŸ˜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 KingsLand’ – 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!

VolcanoesπŸŒ‹ in Hawaii (so amazing 🀩)!

One of the most interesting places that I visited during my time on the Big Island in Hawaii was the Volcano National Park. What a great place to visit while you are in Hawaii! 😊 This was one of the sights that was included in the Deluxe Volcano Experience that Kailani Tours offers in their tour package.

The Volcano Experience offers a comprehensive tour of the island (coffee tour in Kona, Punalu’u Beach Park, etc.) The richness of the experience is seeing a live, active volcano πŸŒ‹ before your very eyes – which is a phenomenal experience. The tour takes you to Mount Kilauea where you can take pictures of the volcano both in the day and at night after you have finished the tour provided dinner.

Here is a quick video of Mount Kilauea in the day. It was wonderful to behold. My night pictures were too dark to share here but you will get the idea. To see more sights and sounds of Hawaii and other epic locations, feel free to follow me at travelfitguru on every social media platform. Enjoy 😊!

A week in Paradise πŸ– 🌴 β˜€οΈ

It was a very long time coming but I finally took my first trip since the pandemic on last week. It was a trip to a location that for years, had been on the bucket list. That location was Hawaii! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ƒ

Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii (via Kona) was a complete dream come true! I could not believe my eyes seeing the picturesque landscape of mountains, beaches, waterfalls (oh my πŸ˜ƒ). One more thing, Hawaii has volcanoes πŸŒ‹. Truly unbelievable having all of the above in one location literally miles away from one another. The climate and elevation changed as you drove through the mountains and adventured to the Volcano State Park. You went from 85 degrees Fahrenheit on the beach to between 30 and 40 degrees at the volcano and in the mountains.

The people were so very friendly and so accommodating! Some of the best folks that I have ever met. I can truly say that out of all the various places that I have visited, this is truly the best. Here is a video of the sights and sounds of this beautiful paradise. More to come..

Dinner Cruise 🚒 Vibes

Reminiscing on very good times earlier this year onboard a Carnival Cruise to the Western CaribbeanπŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ. The ship was at reduced capacity but everyone on board enjoyed the wonderful vibes.

It seems by looking at the video attached below that this is not an event that happened in 2020 but really of a long, forgotten time that was mask 😷 free. This was in fact, back in March 2020. That time was the calm before the proverbial storm!

I hope that you enjoy this video and I definitely hope to return to these times again. Until that time, stay safe and healthyπŸ˜ƒ!
