Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธ- Omg ๐Ÿ˜†!

Cabo San Lucas is an absolutely gorgeous place๐Ÿ˜! I cannot wait to go back one of these days. The views are totally next level and it will leave a wonderful impression upon you. Although I have sailed various places around the world ๐ŸŒŽ, this particular expedition provided one of the most magnificent views that I have ever seen. Here is just a glimpse of the views that I saw on this incredible voyage: youtube.com/shorts/Bk-xbozIONE

The rock structure that you saw in the video is called, Neptune’s Finger. If it looks amazing on the video, it looks even more amazing in person ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I could not believe that we got as close as we did to it. It is one of the more iconic structures that you will see, sailing the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

On this voyage, I also got a chance to see the magnificent, Arc of Cabo San Lucas. That video is located on this blog, just in case you are interested in viewing it. I was completely awestruck looking at that magnificent structure. The water was particularly rough during that part of the tour, so that video has a flair of excitement and adventure.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you are enjoying a great weekend. Check back early and often for more travel adventures!

Carnival Cruise Vibes๐Ÿšข- Happy Friday๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ!

Carnival Cruise Line just has a way of making dreams come true. I have sailed them in the past and I always have been impressed with their commitment to customer service. I have always felt as if I was getting the best experience offered and consequently, I have enjoyed my experience cruising. Here is only a sample of what you can expect, when you choose fun ๐Ÿคฉ: youtube.com/shorts/SfvmvgTTTnY

When all is said and done, I would like to have cruised on not only Carnival, but also Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess etc. I guess you can say that I am a cruise addict. I must admit that I totally am ๐Ÿ˜‚. Admitting it is definitely a great first step ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Sure, taking an airplane to various destinations would get you there quicker but for so many times in life, it is more about the journey than the destination. The journey provides so many memories that will stay etched in your mind for years to come.

This particular video was taken while I was standing out on the Lido Deck, looking at the beautiful water ๐Ÿ’ฆ. I could remember this moment now as if it was yesterday. I did not have any idea at that time, of the many adventures that would take place in the upcoming days of my journey to the Western Caribbean. Feel free to check out this blog for adventures in Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel๐Ÿ˜ƒโค๏ธ!

Breakfast in Paradise ๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Perhaps one of the best views that I have ever had at breakfast, is right here: youtube.com/shorts/5gyKwXSyO2w

Imagine having delicious food here and having such a wonderful view๐Ÿ˜ƒ. That was my situation while vacationing on the beautiful island of Kauai. Storm โ›ˆ clouds aside, it was a view that I could get used too.

The location where I captured this video is the Hilton Garden Inn in Kauai, Hawaii. Should your travel plans take you to Kauai in the near and not so distant future, consider adding this place to your vacation plans. It is certainly a bargain compared to more pricier hotels in Kauai.

What you are seeing is the garden area of the hotel, which is located right outside of the restaurant. On this particular day, I was enjoying the top notch breakfast at there and wanted to capture the beautiful view. When you take a picture or video, it tends to last longer ๐Ÿ˜‚!

Nature Views from Kauai ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Smith’s Grotto is definitely a must see ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! ! It is a wonderful place to visit during any Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ adventure. This tour was absolutely one for the ages: youtube.com/shorts/28c-agNN3Qw

Hawaii, as you have seen from the videos that have been posted, is an absolute dream. On the video above, we are on a nature journey to see the infamous Smith Grotto!๐Ÿ˜ƒ Could not believe the absolute beautiful views that I was able to capture on the journey there.

In a later post on this blog, I will ensure that I post video exclusively from the Smith Grotto location. It is an absolute thing of beauty! I was so surprised to find out that so many people get married there!

Hope that you enjoyed the video above โค๏ธ! It was such a joy to visit this place and I am glad to be able to share it with everyone.

Weekend Hula Vibes๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒบ๐Ÿ!

Hula Vibes are the best vibes. I got a chance to see this up close and personal at the Smith Family Luau in Kauai Hawaii๐Ÿ˜ƒ! This trip represented the first time that I had heard ever experienced the Luau experience and I loved it ๐Ÿ˜. Here is just a glimpse of what I saw during this very entertaining show: youtube.com/shorts/4VCXpbPVXKU

Hula Dancing is heavily integrated into the Hawaiian ๐ŸŒบ culture. So much so, that you could have the Luau experience at your hotel or at a different location (like this one) almost anywhere on the island. You literally have your pick of venues. Before visiting Hawaii, I was told by a friend of mine that you have to have the Luau experience at least once. I am certainly glad that I did!

It felt so very good to have checked this experience off the bucket list. When I first visited Hawaii on last year, mostly all of the Luaus were closed due to Covid. Since things are opening up, the Luaus are as well.

Hope that you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed seeing it๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Happy Easter๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ!

Hope that everyone had a great Easter Sunday! I certainly did – it was a great feeling to be out and about, enjoying family, friends and the weather. Memories are what life is really all about. It has been rightly said the people forget the years and remember moments. Here is one of the those beautiful moments that make life much more beautiful:youtube.com/shorts/qwCvJFsWBIE

This video shows a magnificent sunset along the beautiful shores of the Napali Coast in Kauai, Hawaii. If you would like to book this tour for yourself, you can do so on Trip Advisor. The tour is called the Napali Sunset Cruise. It was totally incredible and you are sure to enjoy the experience.

This is a beautiful sunset especially for an Easter Weekend. It shows the magnificent splendor of this beautiful world that we live in. Hope that you enjoy the video and that you enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

Living on the Edge๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒด!

Living on the edge has never felt better ๐Ÿ˜€! 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 โ›ต๏ธ along the coast of Kauai: youtube.com/shorts/hfCorsdWvIk

It just so happened to be a beautiful day and a spectacular one for sailing โ›ต๏ธ. Even during an almost 6 hour tour, it just did not seem long enough. Just wanted to experience more whale ๐Ÿณ and dolphin ๐Ÿฌ watching, in addition to taking in more views and vibes of the ocean and mountains from the boat ๐Ÿ›ฅ 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 ๐ŸŒน, 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 ๐Ÿ˜… 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 ๐Ÿคฉ is accomplished without the danger โ›”๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 ๐Ÿ˜€! Happy sails and trails ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘‹!

Viva Los Cabos๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด๐Ÿฅ‚!!

Los Cabos is an absolute dream! If you have never been to Los Cabos – put it on your bucket list๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Here is a great video of the beautiful hotel that I had the pleasure of staying in:. youtube.com/shorts/FTjAcFrpBhM

The beautiful hotel seen in this video is the Hilton Los Cabos Hotel and Resort๐Ÿ˜ƒ. One of the best hotels in Los Cabos. It was an absolute dream – you most definitely would enjoy the experience. For me, it starts with the largest hotel room that I have ever stayed in. Then, it is all about the amazing amenities and the ocean front views that will absolutely capture your heart โค๏ธ.

If you have followed this blog for some time, I have highlighted many aspects of Mexico particularly Los Cabos! If you have not seen the previous posts, I encourage you to take a look. Most folks have heard of Cabo San Lucas, which is nearby. I actually went sailing on the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas.

The Hilton Los Cabos has one of the only swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, which also is an absolute plus. The waters in Los Cabos tend to be rough and choppy at times. You will enjoy countless hours hanging out at the beach ๐Ÿ–.

Hope that you will consider Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas in the future. With Spring Break approaching, this would be an excellent location to visit๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

GameTime Fun at Kalahari ๐Ÿคฉ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽŠ!

Who doesn’t like a great arcade? I saw the biggest one that I have ever seen at Kalahari Hotels & Resorts. It was such a phenomenal time playing the various games there. Here is a video that shows how massive this arcade room was: youtube.com/shorts/m0vNv4t65Xg

I have always been an avid gamer!๐Ÿ˜€So as you might imagine, I spent quite a bit of time in this place! Kalahari had all of the latest games, and on top of that, they also had some high quality restaurants there also! These restaurants were conveniently located in the arcade area and also as you are walking to the arcade area.

Spending time in the arcade was amazing but if you are seeking water park adventures, you can walk through the arcade to get to the indoor water park๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Can it possibly get any better than this? The convenience factor was just amazing! I spent a lot of time in the water park also๐Ÿ˜„.

I encourage you all to visit this beautiful place, where there is something to do for the whole family! Kalahari Hotel and Resorts are located throughout the United States. Make your plan to visit the one nearest you.

Belize Sights and Sounds ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป

Belize is such a beautiful place to visit๐Ÿ˜ƒBy far, it is one of the best places that I have visited. Always a great feeling when you can get long time bucket list items checked off your list. Here is just a compilation of the sights and sounds of Belize: youtube.com/shorts/GNXW02RgTpg

Hopefully you enjoyed the video!๐Ÿ˜ƒBelize was one of the stops while cruising along the Western Caribbean! Impressive trip all around especially the speed boat tour of the Belize River. If you ever go, please do the Belize River tour – you will be so glad you did!

I must admit, the Belize River tour isn’t always fast moving. In Belize ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฟ, there are spots along the river where you cannot go fast. While sailing along the river, you will see manatees, alligators ๐ŸŠ, snakes ๐Ÿ etc.

In addition to the tour, you can also visit the Belize Zoo, where you will see a lot of awesome animals. Thankfully this is part of the overall tour – which really adds to the value that this tour has!
