Slow Ride – Aloha Style😍❀️❀️!

Nothing like a great scenic views😍! My preferred mode of travel is an airplane but nothing quite beats a scenic drive. It has often been said that half the fun of travel is the journey to get there. That wholeheartedly applies to this great drive that I was able to capture: youtube.com/shorts/UWLOKj77HKU

This video was taken on the way down from Waimea Canyon in Hawaii. As you can tell from the video – the views are just incredible😊! I don’t think that I have seen such scenic views before traveling here. I have previously shared, on earlier blog posts, the wonderful sights from Waimea Canyon. Never before have I shared such picturesque sky views from the journey.

Travel certainly opens your heart and broadens your mind. At the time that this video was captured, this was the final day of the vacation, so my trip to Kauai was winding down. The sky provided one last beautiful moment to add to the other beautiful moments that were captured during my stay.

Hope that this video will provide an uplift to you on todayπŸ˜€! Feel free to check back early and often for other blog posts, as I continue to travel the world 🌎.

Nature Views from Kauai πŸ˜β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½

Smith’s Grotto is definitely a must see πŸ˜ƒ! ! It is a wonderful place to visit during any Hawaiian 🌺 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!πŸ˜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 ❀️! It was such a joy to visit this place and I am glad to be able to share it with everyone.

Viva Los Cabos😎🌴πŸ₯‚!!

Los Cabos is an absolute dream! If you have never been to Los Cabos – put it on your bucket listπŸ˜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 ResortπŸ˜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 ❀️.

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 πŸ–.

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

Jump In – Water Feels Great πŸ’¦ 😊!

Kalahari Hotels and Resorts are an absolute dream 🀩! If you have followed my blog, you already know how beautiful it is. There is something to do for the whole family and it is a lot cheaper than Universal Studios and Disney 😊. Check out this ginormous wading pool: youtube.com/shorts/fcacCAxz83k

In posting this video, I can see myself right here wading in that water πŸ’¦. Hopefully you can see yourself there also. Cannot overstate how much I enjoyed my experience there at the park. The indoor water park is worth the price of admission alone!😎

The video above highlights just one of the indoor attractions that Kalahari has there. In recent years, Kalahari Hotels and Resorts have popped up in various parts of the USA. If I am not mistaken, there is at least a couple that are located elsewhere in the world.

The Kalahari experience that I have captured is from the fairly new water park in Round Rock, Texas. Not only was the water park top notch but so was the beautiful hotel 🏨. I would definitely encourage anyone, as you are making plans for Spring Break or even Summer travel, to check out Kalahari. You will be so glad that you did πŸ˜ƒ!

GameTime Fun at Kalahari πŸ€©πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽŠ!

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!πŸ˜€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 parkπŸ˜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 alsoπŸ˜„.

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 😎😎😻😻

Belize is such a beautiful place to visitπŸ˜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!πŸ˜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 πŸ‡§πŸ‡Ώ, there are spots along the river where you cannot go fast. While sailing along the river, you will see manatees, alligators 🐊, snakes 🐍 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!

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

New Years Eve 2021: Travel Highlights πŸ˜ŽπŸ™Œ

Final countdown to the end of the year. We are literally hours away from the start of a brand new year, 2022. No matter what we were expecting in 2021, the year in so many ways, exceeded some and fell woefully short of expectations. Here is some travel highlights from the past year: youtube.com/shorts/ycMXtiBRVw0

Hawaii was incredible and as you can tell from earlier posts, it was the best travel location by far. The gorgeous views cannot be replicated, it lays claim to its own picture perfect view of paradise. Hopefully some, if not all of you, had an opportunity to travel somewhere during the course of 2021. If not, hopefully 2022 will be a better year for travel.

Beaches are some of my favorite places to visit. All of the beaches in this video, were taken in Hawaii. I never seen a beach that I have not liked but these beaches are next level. I plan to visit another Hawaiian island on next year to experience even more of the LiveAloha experience.

Hopefully you enjoy the video above and that you will visit this blog early and often in the new year for other travel adventures! πŸ˜†

Sailing the Cabo Sea 🚀 🌊

If you have never gone sailing before, it is such a wonderful experience. Before sailing ⛡️, I would avoid it because I figured that I would get sea sick πŸ€’. Here is a voyage that I took along the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas: youtube.com/shorts/JgOcPplWsH4

Prior to this voyage, I took my first cruise with Carnival. I packed Dramamine, a wristband (that helps avoid seasickness) and I packed the little circle bandaid type strips that are designed to go behind your ear. To my surprise, I did not get seasick but felt pretty sick because I spent money on all of these products that are designed to help prevent seasickness πŸ˜‚.

Still, it is always better to be safe rather than sorry. I had a wonderful time on both the Carnival and Cabo voyage. As you can tell from the video, the weather was very beautiful and the waves were not as choppy. Truly one of the best voyages that I have been on because of the weather and the wonderful tour guide that we had on that day.

In case you are interested in booking this same tour, it can be found on the Trip Advisor site or app. It is the Cabo San Lucas Glass Bottom Boat tour and it contains a couple of hours on the sea, tour of a glass blowing factory, lunch, tequila tasting and a tour around the city of San Jose del Cabo. You will be so glad that you booked this tour – prepare to have loads of fun 🀩!

Views and Vibes 😎🎢🎢

Nothing like great views and vibes to get the juices flowing on a wonderful new day!😊 Here is a great combination of both that I just shared: youtube.com/shorts/AY34bw2yJ6Q

The view of Kailua Bay in Downtown Kona, Hawaii is just so heavenly πŸ˜‡. I firmly believe that there are pieces of paradise sprinkled around this beautiful world that we live in. If you have traveled around this world 🌎, you have undoubtedly seen proof of beauty that leaves you speechless and instantly makes you a storyteller.

Included down by the bay is a small beach that I got a chance to swim at. This beach is called Niumalu Beach πŸ–. Nice beach especially for kids since the water is fairly shallow, at least closer to the shore but as you get out further in the bay, the water gets deeper.

I will share more from Niumalu Beach in future posts. I hope that you enjoy the video above and that you will check this blog regularly for future updates. Have a great day 😎!
