Paddle Board Vibes from Kona πŸ˜ŽπŸ™Œβ€οΈ!

With Spring among us already, we are now starting to have thoughts of summer. Whether it is optimistic thoughts of being finally done with this pandemic or of just taking a much needed summer vacation, summer is so eagerly anticipated. I have provided a little touch of summer in the springtime here: youtube.com/watch

The video contains some ocean views from my time visiting Kona, Hawaii. It features a paddle boarding couple out in the wonderful ocean on a nice beautiful day. Such a shot of vacation bliss that I think we all could use.

Hope that you have a wonderful Friday! Feel free to check back often for other travel videos and highlights.

Chasing Waterfalls in the Aloha State!!πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ

The song says to not go chasing waterfalls but to stick the rivers and the lakes that you are used to. I did not take this advice but decided that I would go chase waterfalls anyway because there are so many pretty ones in Hawaii. πŸ˜‚ I had fun exploring this particular one (Kahuna Falls)youtube.com/shorts/r5MAo76VCrw

It was certainly a magnificent one, and I will never forget the experience as long as I live. It was a rainy day that day but I was not deterred but was rather determined to take the mountainous trek to see my first ever waterfall πŸ˜ƒ.

It was as if we were walking through a rainforest. I could not believe the beauty of the green forest along with the beautiful rivers and streams that were encountered during the hike to Kahuna Falls.

The experience left me with a lifetime of memories, beholding the beauty of a waterfall and experiencing the thin air of the hiking in a mountain that was several thousands of feet in elevation.

Hope that you enjoy the experience captured in this video. Stay safe and healthy 😷 πŸ™Œ

Ocean Eyes πŸ‘€ in Hawaii πŸŒΈπŸŒŠπŸ– 🏝

It is so very easy to have ocean eyes in Hawaii 😎! So many great views to see!it was literally a heaven on earth 🌎. This particular video is from the beach located outside of the Hilton Waikoloa resort that I stayed in during my vacation on last month.

It honestly felt so great to be out and about after a tough year that 2020 was. I took so many pictures and videos, so there will be more to share. I look forward to more adventures on this year, it certainly will all depend on the vaccine rollout and the requirements for travel that will come out as a result.

From not being able to travel for over a year, I have a renewed sense of appreciation for it. I certainly will never take it for granted. It is in fact a magnificent luxury to be able to do so. I count myself as having been blessed to travel.

Enjoy the video that I have uploaded to YouTube. Feel free to reach out if Hawaii is in your destination plans in the near future.

Some of my best paths in life have always led to the beach πŸ– 😻🏝

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

Last Day of 2020 πŸ˜€πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ™Œ – thought we would never get here!

What a year 2020 has been! Hard to believe this is the last day of a year that will forever be remembered for the pandemic, social injustice marches, masks, loved ones that were lost etc. This year has had its share of ups and many more downs. Through it all and in it all, we have made it to the final day. 😊

I am very hopeful for a wonderful and prosperous New Year for myself and for us all. πŸ™Œ Hoping that we return to some since of normalcy within 2021. I believe that things can and will get better. We must keep the faith that better days are coming.

Thankfully I was able to do some traveling prior to the lockdown and quarantine period in March of this year. I was able to take a cruise to the Western Caribbean (Costa Maya, Cozumel and Belize). Also once the lockdown was lifted, I was able to take a staycation and visit a few places.

Attached below are some highlights from my 2020 posts from Instagram (travelfitguru). Feel free to connect on that platform and on Twitter and TikTok. Hope that you enjoy and that you have a wonderful and prosperous New Year! 😊

Ocean Eyes Vibes πŸ–β›΅οΈ

San Jose Del Cabo is a place that I would definitely visit again. The seaside vibes are superb and the white sand beaches are so spectacular! The video below was part of a tour that I booked through Trip Advisor. The tour also included a trip to the world famous Cabo San Lucas Arch which I will post later.

This particular area was overlooking the beach and also was located in an area of San Jose Del Cabo that lot of celebrities from the US have vacation houses. I hope that you enjoy the video below. I look forward to visiting this location again during my travels.

Hilton Los Cabos – what a stay πŸ€©πŸ™Œ!

Staying at the Hilton Los Cabos was a dream come true. The excellent views were just like paradise. Could not believe how absolutely perfect this hotel was. One of the very best hotels that I have ever stayed in. The rooms were spacious and the ocean views were second to none that I have ever seen.

The grounds were definitely immaculate. There were a number of pools onsite, even more than one swim πŸŠβ€β™€οΈ up bar! A number of cabanas were available around the beach area and the food was absolutely delicious.

Truly felt as if I had died and gone to heaven. I definitely look forward to visiting this wonderful place again after Covid. I am sure that it will need to be booked so far in advance πŸ˜‚! The secret is sure to get out. I would definitely recommend this hotel for its great views, excellent customer service, beach view and the wonderful amenities. Truly on of the top 3 hotels that I have visited in my travels abroad πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ!

Great views all around at the Hilton Los CabosπŸ˜€
