Happy New Year’s Eve πŸ˜ƒ!

2022 was such a phenomenal year in a lot of different ways😍! As there are only a few hours left in 2022, I wanted to take some time to reflect on the year that was. It was an incredible travel year for me. It stands second to none to any other year . I have traveled to different parts of this world and seen so many beautiful people and things along the wayπŸ˜ƒ! Yet, I stood absolutely amazed to the spectacular views that I saw on this year. Here is just a sampling of what 2022 had to offer for me: youtube.com/shorts/_Kd6S93I0Us

Isn’t it absolutely amazing 🀩? I was astonished by the beauty that I saw in both Kauai, Hawaii and Montego Bay, Jamaica. I had never visited Kauai before but I had heard so many great thingsπŸ˜€. It was absolutely everything that I had heard and so much more.

Montego Bay was phenomenal also😍! I had visited this beautiful island once before but I had never visited Negril. Negril was so gorgeous, particularly, Rick’s Cafe! If you have not been, by all means, go. You will have such a special time there and you will definitely want to come back to experience it again.

Here’s wishing you all the best for a headland prosperous New Year!

Jamaican Pool Workout πŸ˜ƒ!

If you love working out as much as I do, you will indeed love this pool workout that I captured πŸ˜ƒ: youtube.com/shorts/AyoBVnPCOWI

Wouldn’t you love to hang out here also? What an amazing resort the Hilton Rose Hall is. This was the second time that I had the opportunity to stay at this magnificent place. If you are looking for a place to hang out during your stay in Montego Bay, look no further than this outstanding resort! It looks like paradise as you can see in the video.

On this particular day, it was bittersweet, because after a few fun filled days there, it was unfortunately time to go 😒. If you have followed this blog for a while, you have seen the spectacular views that Jamaica has to offer.

This is a perfect time to visit Jamaica because the weather is so cold πŸ₯Ά now. Jamaica is one of the best keep secrets for snow birds 🐦 in the winter. It is one of the least expensive options, which makes it high on my list! If rest and relaxation is high in your list, Jamaica is the place to go.

Jamaica Destination Vibes😍❀️!

If you are looking for an escape from the bitterly cold weather of winter, I would like to suggest spending a week or so on the beautiful island of Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ˜ƒ! The island has so much to offer and you will instantly love the great people, food and the beautiful beaches. This location may be just what the doctor ordered πŸ˜‚:youtube.com/shorts/2JskdSjj3Qo

I have visited the island 🏝️ twice now and I have done different excursions each time. Although it is a small island, you will not get bored πŸ₯±. There is so much to do and so little time to do it πŸ˜‚ ❀️. You will essentially run out of time before running out of things to do.

The Hilton Rose Hall is definitely a spectacular place to stay while visiting Montego Bay. The hotel is top notch and has something to offer for everyone. It is also all inclusive, which in my book, makes it an even better experience πŸ˜ƒ.

If you are a snow ❄️ bird 🦒, who is looking to move to warmer climates during the spring, you are sure to enjoy the magnificent island of Jamaica. You can experience not only a break from the cold temperature, but some much needed relaxation!❀️

Lost my heart in CozumelπŸ˜ƒ!

Absolutely lost my heart in beautiful Cozumel ❀️❀️🚁! If you have not been to Cozumel, do yourself a favor and go. It is an excellent time to go, particularly right now, for a lot of folks dreaming of warm climates during this time of the year πŸ˜ƒ. Fact of the matter is, Cozumel is perfect, any time of the yearπŸ˜ƒ. This is especially true if you visit by cruise ship – which I did. Here is just a snippet of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/uVitg8KjkLg

Cannot describe the sense of euphoria when I stepped off that ship to embark on my excursion in Cozumel. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew that I would have an awesome time there. I certainly did – visiting Chankanaab. If you are interested in what Chankanaab looks like, look no further than this blog, in which I have provided pictures and videos to peak your traveling interest.

If you are looking to become a snow bird and fly or sail south for the winter πŸ₯Ά. You will most certainly enjoy the gorgeous views and vibes of Cozumel, MexicoπŸ˜ƒ!

Jamaica Beach TripπŸ˜ŽπŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ!

Life is a beach πŸ–πŸ˜Ž! My favorite paths in life has always led to the beach πŸ–. It is one of the best past times there is. I have never seen a beach that I have not loved. Maybe it is the warm sunshine or possibly the waves hitting against the shoreπŸ˜ƒ. Whatever it is – I need it always. Vacations are made to be experienced at the beach. It is so very relaxing and provides a proper respite from the regular day to day drudgery (at times) of life. Here is one such beach that brings back so many fond memories: youtube.com/shorts/yFbIHu0f2Mo

If you have never been to Jamaica, make your plans to get there ASAP πŸ˜ƒ! You will enjoy the gorgeous views, beautiful sunrises and the warm hospitality of the Jamaican people. Make no mistake about it, this is a trip that needs to be taken. If you love beach πŸ– vacations – you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful place to experience it.

From looking at this video, I instantly go back to the wonderful time that I had on this cruise. I am a cruiser for sure! In fact, I have never been on one that I have not liked or enjoyed. I have been on many and I look forward to going on many more. It is a thrill of a lifetime to be out there on the water and in this instance, to be able to see the beautiful mountains out on the horizon.

Kauai is one of the best kept secrets. If I had known how beautiful it is, I would have gotten here sooner. πŸ˜‚ What a wonderful adventure that it turned out to be. I encourage everyone to check it out for yourselves! You will not be disappointed 😎.

Carnival Dance πŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΎParty VibesπŸ˜ƒ!

Nothing like a great dance party to get things going πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒ! I love this experience, whether on land or by sea. I am reminded of a great dance πŸ’ƒ party that took place during a recent cruise. It was so totally epic that I still remember how much fun that I had from the great experience. Here is how it got started: youtube.com/shorts/teYB4OTSAaE

I will forever be a great fan of cruises 🚒. I am partial to Carnival Cruises but that is only because I have not tried any of the others πŸ˜‚. I plan to be more active on the cruise front and try the various other cruise lines. It will be interesting to understand the similarities and the differences across the various cruise lines.

This dance party πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ was the first one that I had the pleasure of experiencing and the first that I actually recorded also. I am a big fan of making videos while I am on vacation. Of course, you probably figured that by now, πŸ˜‚ since I have this travel blog and other travel related social media accounts (@travelfitguru). Find and follow me on all social media for moreπŸ˜ƒ.

Welcome to Kalahari 😎!

For most of the country, we are experiencing cooler if not colder weather. It is certainly a welcomed relief from the brutally warm summer. If you are interested in experiencing summer in the winter πŸ₯Ά, look no further than an indoor water park – like Kalahari 😎! Kalahari is a world of fun, not a world 🌎 away: youtube.com/shorts/rkSSukGgxIM

The views are incredible and so are the great rides πŸ˜ƒ. I can definitely say that there is something for everyone. The kids will enjoy it, but also the kids at heart ❀️. I was very impressed with the water park and the resort as a whole.

In addition to the water park, there is a very large arcade. The name of the arcade is TomFoolery πŸ˜‚. You can spend so much time right there. I am a gamer at heart, so I could not help but spend so much time there. Kalahari is definitely tops on my list to visit and you will love it also 😎!

Paradise Found in Jamaica πŸ˜ƒ!

Paradise is so very beautiful 🀩! I left my heart in Montego Bay – it was just so incredible 😍! I got a chance to not only spend time at the Hilton Rose Hall pools but also I spent a fair amount of time at the beach, which is evident by this particular video: youtube.com/shorts/O1YF3tS70oY

Jamaica is one of the most beautiful islands in the world 🌎. Along with its beauty, Jamaica is definitely known for its rich culture and great food. I got an opportunity to experience both while visiting this wonderful island 🏝.

Once you visit any city in Jamaica, you instantly feel like a part of the family πŸ˜‚. There are so many excellent excursions to see, you have to stay weeks or months at a time to do them all. Or even better, high grade the excursions that you would like to see on your first trip and do the others when you return on your next trip!

Hope that you like the video and plan to visit this beautiful island soon πŸ˜ƒ!

Jamaica is an absolute dream! You cannot go wrong visiting any of the beautiful citiesπŸ˜ƒ. Jamaica is so very rich in beauty and magnificent culture that when you visit for short time, you want to stay a lot longer. I had the pleasure of staying at one of the best hotels in Montego Bay – The Hilton Rose Hall.

By far, one of the absolute best views that I have ever get seen from a hotel balcony. I originally asked for a ocean front room but got this room instead. I am so glad that I did. It was so wonderful waking up to this view every morning. This is absolutely why you take vacation, to wake up to views like these.

I was so very impressed with the beautiful views and the wonderful amenities that this hotel has to offer. Even the beds were so very comfortable. I almost wanted to take it back home 🏑 with me πŸ˜‚! The weather was beautiful the entire time that I was there – not one rain 🌧 cloud in the sky.
