Live Your LifeπŸ˜Šβ€οΈπŸ™Œ!

“Live Your Life” is a great motto for todayπŸ˜ƒ! We all want to make the most out of life because life is certainly so fleeting. We have become so much more aware of this fact, living in a pandemic world 🌎. The dilemma is determining what is most valuable in life: experiences or possessions or maybe both? I would love to have more possessions but experiences last a lot longer πŸ˜‚! Case in point, is this experience at a wonderful resort: youtube.com/shorts/TPzKKA8XmrU

That was the view that I saw from my window, every morning that I walked out on the balcony. Absolutely perfect views for a wonderful hotel 🏨. This is the Ocean Tower located on the grounds of the Hilton Waikoloa Village. If you have followed this blog for some time, you would have noticed various videos from this balcony on previous posts.

I really appreciate beautiful experiences such as these. These experiences makes me want to have more experiences like these in the future. Alas, there is so many places and so little time 😊. Which means that prioritization is absolutely the key πŸ”‘.

There were years in which I did not travel because, unfortunately, I did not realize the importance of forward planning for the vacation. My planning would consist of waiting until close to the week that I wanted to go on vacation and then attempt to book travel. Of course, at that time, everything is very expensive and out of my price range. Only when I started to plan for vacation and booked travel arrangements months before, did I start going on vacation.

Hope that you enjoyed the video above and that you will check this blog, early and often, for new travel adventures! πŸ˜ƒ

Life is a beach πŸ– πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ–!

Find your beach – popular phrase used a lot these days in commercials.πŸ˜ƒFinding your beach πŸ–, really speaks to finding your happy place, beach or otherwise. With so much going on these days, we are having to find our beaches, early and often. I totally found my happy place which happens to be a beach also πŸ˜‚ , one of the best that I have visited. I have captured it here: youtube.com/shorts/0SAyFx90GuU

This video was taken from the balcony of the Hilton Los Cabos Hotel. If you have never visited, I hope that you will in the future and that you will get an ocean view room. These room provide the absolute best views. That is probably why these rooms are at an absolute premium to book😊.

Although I have only visited this hotel once, it is absolutely number 1 on my list for visiting again! The amenities were top notch and the grounds of the hotel were immaculate. The only down side to the hotel was that it was not all inclusive. Many of the hotels in Mexico are all inclusive. I think that this hotel is one of the best non-all inclusive hotels in Los Cabos.

Hope that you enjoy the view and that you will make your plans to visit Los Cabos soon and stay at this gorgeous hotel. You will be glad that you did!πŸ˜ƒ

All Aboard – Sail Away Party 🚒 πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰

If you have ever wondered about the type of entertainment that cruise ships have on board, look no further than this video:youtube.com/shorts/f4u6XOdNrgg

I remember this experience as if it were just yesterday πŸ˜ƒ. So much fun and so much eager anticipation of sailing to the Western Caribbean to visit Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel. I could hardly contain my excitement, just like kid, excitedly waiting for Christmas πŸŽ….

The video above is just a snippet of entertainment that we had on that day. Once you take a cruise, there is a myriad of things to do. Casinos are there, Broadway style performances also keep you entertained. Comedy shows are onboard along with miniature golf, basketball, swimming etc.

If you are wondering whether daycare and kid care facilities are there, the answer is yes πŸ™Œ. There are also adult only pools etc. if you prefer the all adult experiences. Food is there in absolute abundance: buffets, fine dining, fast food etc. it is almost like a airplane, hotel and restaurants all combined into one experience!

I will readily admit that I have not been cruising since the pandemic 😷 so I caution everyone to take all safety precautions to ensure that you get the most out of your experience. The video above is from pre-pandemic times so the experience would have changed since then. I am sure that the cruise lines will do all that is within their power to ensure a safe experience.

I look forward to sailing in the future and I encourage you all to cruise, especially if this is the first time or if you have cruised before. The experience is an excellent one and the memories will last a lifetime! πŸ˜ƒ

For Infinity and Beyond 🀩

Lovely views are made to be sharedπŸ˜ƒ! I appreciate every time that I have the opportunity to travel and see views that I have never seen before. Most trips that I have taken within the last few years, have been to tropical 🌴 locations. These trips have provided picture perfect views like this one: youtube.com/shorts/qkJuymFrSVA

It is so very lovely to be able to see this first hand. The beautiful colors of the rocks with the contrast of the beautiful water is just heavenly. Absolutely love travel from infinity and beyond πŸ˜‚. This breathtaking view is courtesy of Kona, Hawaii – which I had the pleasure of visiting.

Nothing quite like waking up in a place that you have never been. Since I am more of a morning person, I particularly love the early morning sunrises and the beautiful walks along the ocean shore. I truly believe that these early morning moments provide the start to a calm, still, peaceful dayπŸ˜ƒ.

Hope that you’ve enjoyed the video above and that you visit this blog, early and often, for new travel adventures!

Absolutely love the views here πŸ€©πŸ™Œ

I absolutely love beautiful resort views.😎Quite nothing at all like it. If you are a fan of beautiful views, you might want to take a look at this one:youtube.com/shorts/wzJ7bSNTHYc

Whether you are a golf fan or not, this is truly incredible ❀️. This view was captured at the Kings’ Landing Hotel in Kona, Hawaii. The hotel itself was surrounded by so many tropical views. You could literally take pictures everywhere here.

The golf ⛳️ course is one of the best that I have seen in a paradise location. I must say that I did not, unfortunately, get a chance to play at the golf course but I would love to go back again to play a few links!

Hope that you enjoy the beautiful video. If you get a chance to visit this gorgeous place, you will have an absolute blast πŸ’₯! The Big Island of Hawaii is worth the tripπŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ.

Paradise Found-Omg😎!

Island views are the best views, bar none! 😊 My last few vacations have been to tropical locations. Here is one of the best beaches that I have ever visited: youtube.com/shorts/4cgoEGbEgxM

Hope that you appreciate the beauty of this spectacular video. The contrast of black sand and blue water is just exceptional. Looking at this video takes me instantly back to sitting on the beach πŸ–. Especially experiencing such a cool day at home on today.

This is definitely paradise and I am so glad that I found it on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was so very impressive and a must visit if you are looking for vacation options in 2022. If you are thinking of visiting the Big Island of Hawaii soon, be sure to check out other posts like these on my blog.

Michael Jackson Vibes😎🎡🎡

One of my favorite artists of all time is the King of PopπŸ˜€! His music still lives on, even though he is no longer with us. To my surprise, when I was visiting Jamaica, I was able to attend a concert at my hotel: Hilton Rose Hall. Here is a snippet of the performance: youtube.com/shorts/I_lqCaIU7rY

It was a great impersonation of Michael Jackson, down to the make up and dance πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎmoves. He was truly one of a kind but so was this hotel 🏨! If you ever venture to Montego Bay, Jamaica, I highly recommend staying at this hotel. It has wonderful performances, like the one above, and it is luxury personified. It has all of the amenities that you would want and the best part, it is all inclusive.

This has been my only all inclusive experience throughout my travels. It is totally the way to go for sure. All of the food and drinks are included in the price of the hotel. Cannot get any better than that.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

If you would like to see the other Smooth Criminal performance that I captured from this concert, feel free to look at the previous posts in my blog. Have a great day!

Beautiful DestinationπŸ˜ŽπŸŒ΄πŸ˜ƒ!

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations! This was certainly the case going through all of the travel restrictions in 2020 and waiting for that next travel adventure. Thankfully, it was Hawaii, one of the most beautiful destinations in the world 🌎. While riding as a passenger, I captured this incredible stroll along the coastline in downtown Kona, Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/86mIOxgIlWE

If only I can see views like these every day πŸ˜‚! These are views that you cannot wait to see when you get there and views you cannot wait to share once you have left. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the reason why you travel πŸ˜ƒ. There are so many places to see and just so little time to see them.

This particular stroll was part of a sight seeing tour that I booked while vacationing there in Kona. This tour took you through downtown Kona, to a coffee farm (Kona has the best coffee), to a hometown bakery, a black sand beach (I have videos on my blog) and lastly the tour took us to the only active volcano on the Hawaiian Islands, Mount Kilauea.

If all that was not enough, the tour provided lunch and dinner. Pretty impressive huh πŸ€”? I thought so and would happily do this tour again to soak in more of the spectacular views. I highly recommend doing this tour to see all there is to Kona.

The island is truly remarkable and it has made me even more of a fan of Hawaii. Truly in a class by itself for vacations!

Happy Holidays- Dance in the Rain πŸŒ§πŸ˜€!

There is an old saying that goes like this: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain”. This is so very true. We have storms in life that seem so overwhelming but we cannot lose hopeπŸ˜ƒ! We must learn the importance of dancing πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎin the midst of the storm. Realizing that storms do not last always but as we see in rainstorms, they appear for a while and all of the sudden they are gone. I observed a storm in, of all places, Hawaii. The beauty of the storm at this beach, kept me continuing to capture this video: youtube.com/shorts/9CtrmGv8J3Q

Sometimes there can certainly be beauty in the storm β›ˆ πŸ˜ƒ! As we see in the video, the raindrops are frequent and they are big. Yet the beauty of the water crashing along the shore is captivating. Even through the rain, this beach still continues to amaze me in this video.

This is the only black sand beach that I have visited as I have traveled. I certainly plan to seek out more to explore in the near future because I had so much fun visiting this one. 2022 may certainly provide an opportunity to visit another beach and who knows, maybe it could be a green sand beach, which I have heard so much about! πŸ˜ƒ

View of the DayπŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸŒ΄

If you need a pick me up for the day, then look no further than this video: youtube.com/shorts/M-yCNDwS7aY

It is sure to bring a smile to your face especially if you enjoy wonderful views. This is an absolute beauty! I could not believe the views that I was seeing. What made it especially great was the lookout point where I was standing. It provided an excellent bird’s eye view of the shore.

This view was captured in the wonderful city of San Jose del Cabo. If you have never visited, do yourself a favor and go. It is literally located about 15 minutes from the well known city of Cabo San Lucas. Cabo is a beautiful city to see, as you can tell from my earlier posts on this blog.

Certainly appreciative of this view during the fall and winter months. I am definitely not a lover of cold weather but the snow views that I have seen on social media and other places are just magnificentπŸ™ŒπŸ˜€!

Happy travels to you all and I hope that you enjoyed the wonderful video above. Have a great day!
