Views for Days and Nights β˜€οΈ 🌝

Sometimes when you are feeling just a little creative, you start editing pictures and video to more accurately capture the beautiful moment that is appearing before your eyes. I felt that way when I captured the following video: youtube.com/shorts/PwwbjIln_eQ

When you are not accustomed to views like these on a daily or nightly basis, creativity takes over πŸ˜‚. It is for that reason that I never take for granted the opportunity to travel because it is definitely a luxury. Nothing makes me feel more closer to myself and to the world.

This particular beauty was captured from the balcony of the Hilton Waikoloa Village- Ocean Tower. What a wonderful stay this was. I will always remember it because I was awaken by the birds πŸ¦… chirping every morning πŸ˜ƒ which was pretty cool. No matter where I have traveled before in the world 🌎, that has never been my experience.

I hope that you enjoy the above video and that you have a great day! πŸ˜ƒ

Views for days – All AboardπŸ˜ƒ!

If you never have been onboard a Carnival Cruise, feel free to take a (pre-pandemic) look at what it is like: youtube.com/shorts/Z3G45L80oDQ

Cruises are just so much fun😎 If you have never cruised before, do yourself a favor and do so, if only once! If you have cruised before, you know the feeling of relaxation that you get from being on a cruise. Unlike anything that I have personally experienced before.

On this particular cruise, we were our way to the Western Caribbean where we spent time in Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel. As you can see from the locations listed, a cruise enables you to see these beautiful locations all in one trip. Otherwise, you would have to book separate trips to each one.

Of course this was pre- pandemic 😷 so things would likely have changed since this time. I plan to cruise again next year and I am definitely looking forward to it. Hope to see you on a future trip!

Poolside Vibes for a New Week – Kalahari WaterPark

Until the official end of summer (Labor Day) there is still time to enjoy the sights and sounds of pool vibes 😎 like the ones that I have captured here: youtube.com/shorts/511-CTG0_Fk

Whether you are at Kalahari, or in your backyard, there is no better way to beat the heat than relaxing at the pool.πŸ˜ƒ As you can see from the video above, on this particular day, the pool was the popular option πŸ˜‚. I certainly had fun relaxing here and having it indoors did not hurt at all.

I believe that it felt so much more exceptionally well given all that we as a society has endured due to the pandemic 😷. Just felt like a tremendous release – as if we we all were waiting to exhale.

Enjoy the above video. Hopefully these good times will return soon. It was very nice to experience at least for a short time.

Behold πŸ˜ƒ – Belize πŸ‡§πŸ‡Ώ 🏝 😎!

One of the best places that I have ever visited is Belize! Behold the beauty of this magnificent location here: youtube.com/shorts/huSi1F6itdE

I had just arrived (on this gorgeous day) at around 8:00 am and as you can tell from the video, it was so beautiful. You can look at the views from the port and it gives you just a taste of what Belize has to offer.

While I was there, I got to take a cruise of the Belize River which was just so magnificent. I will share more on future posts, but suffice it to say, it felt good to be able to check this off my bucket listπŸ™Œ.

Hope that you enjoy the video and I look forward to posting more in the days and weeks ahead.

Coming in Hot πŸ₯΅- Mount Kilauea Volcano πŸŒ‹ Vent

Coming in hot on a Thursday πŸ˜ƒπŸŒ‹! Check out the video that I just posted of the only active volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. There are volcano vents on the outside of the volcano- just like this one here: youtube.com/shorts/xLKFsRu5OVE

What a sight to see that it was. Just an amazing sight to behold. Before this experience, I had never seen one of these in person but cannot wait to see another one. These vents allow steam and other gases to emit from the base of the volcano. The steam was very hot πŸ₯΅ which contrasted nicely with the cold weather that was outside.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Volcano State Park in Hawaii, please do so. It is such an incredible place to visit while you are there. You will be so glad that you did!

Keep Calm and Wobble πŸ˜ƒπŸπŸ–!

Nothing else like dancing in a group. πŸ˜ƒ Couple that with being on vacation at a beach and you have excellent memories. Such is the case with my first and only visit to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Certainly not my last for sure.

The wobble is a very iconic dance that is widely known by almost everyone. This particular video today shows the fun that I experienced doing the wobble after dinner on the beach. Certainly an experience like none other that I have had. This beach was located onsite at the Hilton Rose Hall Hotel in case you may want to visit.

I hope that you enjoy the vibes here and make sure, by all means, to Keep Calm and Wobble! πŸ’ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ”₯πŸ‡―πŸ‡²

Picture Perfect Paradise 😎 πŸ–!

Nothing else quite like a picture perfect paradise! When you see it, you recognize it as such and it makes your heart so glad. This picture perfect paradise was found for me on the beautiful island 🏝 of Cozumel! The views are just breathtaking and they were so very peaceful. With as much going on in the world these days, you certainly reach for any semblance of paradise that you can find.

This was a most excellent place to go and I highly recommend it also. The Chankanaab Beach Park is such a beautiful place to visit. It is located in the heart of Cozumel, around 20 minutes from the cruise port. This place has it all, dolphins, tequila tasting, sea lions etc. It is a tourist’ paradise and you can literally spend days touring this magical paradise.

My travels tend to take me to so many parts of this world 🌎 but I was totally amazed by this place. It was such a remarkable place to visit and the weather was just so very perfect. If you are looking for a place to visit this summer, look no further than Cozumel. You will be glad that to did! 😊

Vacation Mode on πŸ˜ŽπŸπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ!

Nothing like going on a nice, relaxing vacation. Vacationing is chicken soup for your mind, body and soul πŸ˜‚! I experienced this form of self love while visiting the Big Island of Hawaii. Here is a video of Kailua Bay, which is located in Downtown Kona on the Big Island: youtube.com/shorts/8yJb3p5M6hU

I love watching the waves gently hitting the shoreline. This provide such a welcome break from the mundane, day to day life that we often experience. Nothing quite like getting away. Travel truly provides mental health therapy that is so needed in the stressful times that we live in.

If you are looking to experience peace and quiet, look no further than downtown Kona. I highly recommend this great scenery along with the wonderful restaurants, novelty shops and of course the beautiful people that make everything else so worthwhile. πŸ˜€

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.

Vacation Goal: Views for Days – Hawaii Oceans πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ

Summer is officially here! As you make your vacation plans, I would like to suggest a beautiful place with wonderful ocean views. Look no further than the Big Island of Hawaii: πŸ‘‰ youtube.com/shorts/3dig-Rb-qbQ

This is truly paradise on earth and you will have an excellent time visiting this beautiful place. If you have followed stories in my blog, you have seen the beautiful paradise that is Hawaii. Such a beautiful place to see it all: mountains, beaches, waterfalls etc. I have never been to a more beautiful place at all.

Do yourself a favor and experience this beautiful place for yourself! You will be glad that you didπŸ˜€
