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.
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.
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, 🏖 again! 😂 youtube.com/watch
What an exciting game it was on last night! It is a magnificent story of how Tom Brady has been so consistent for so many years. He has played in the league for at least 20 years and has won the Super Bowl now an unprecedented 7 times. More than any other player or any other NFL franchise. He made the difference in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers getting to the next level and winning the Super Bowl. Great people do great things and it was awesome to be able to watch the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) win one more time.
I am definitely reminded of a time when the Super Bowl was in Texas. During that year, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots were playing the Atlanta Falcons. I got a chance to visit the Super Bowl LI Fan experience which occurs during the days leading up to the Super Bowl. I have included a video below which captures some sights from that time. Enjoy!
I had an opportunity late last year to visit the UniverSoul Circus and what a a great time it was. Could not believe the amazing time that I experiencing the sights and sounds of this beautiful circus 🤡! It was an excellent time and so much fun!
Of course since we were in the middle of a pandemic 😷, all Covid protocols were followed. It was just fun to be out and about and to see people, like the good old days. How this is so missed. The performances were so very good. It included high wire acts, motorcycle stunts, beautiful performing animals and death defying stunts.
Even the wonderful clowns 🤡 were such a great source of entertainment. They kept the crowd very entertained and provided a lot of fun for the socially distanced, small crowd that was there.
Attached is a video from their great show. If ever you get an opportunity to see the UniverSoul Circus 🤡, please do not hesitate. Have a great day! 😀
Manhattan, New York is certainly one of the best places that I have had the pleasure of visiting 😄! The city really just takes your breath away. There is so much to do and so little time to do it unless you have a couple of weeks to vacation there.
During my travels there, I have seen so much. At last count, I probably have been there at least 7 times, and I must admit, I have not seen all there is to see of the city. I have visited the Empire State Building, 30 Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Broadway, Central Park etc.
Still on the list: Battery Park, World Trade Memorial, Radio City Music Hall etc. Hopefully, once the pandemic 😷 cases drop and travel get back to normal, I could visit these attractions among others. One of the attractions that I would certainly recommend is the Circle ⭕️ Line Tour. It is an absolute must when visiting the city. You get a chance to see all of NYC from a boat. In addition, you see the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium etc.
As always, I have attached a video that includes a few of the sights and sounds of the city 🌃. Enjoy!
As you travel to different parts of the country, you see a lot of things and you have many experiences, One such experience, was the UniverSoul Circus! What an outstanding experience it was! Thoroughly enjoyed my time there under the BigTop! So much to see and so much fun also! 🤩
The talent there was second to none and the stunts were breathtaking. They seemed to have it all, trapeze artists, motorcycle stunts, dancing dogs etc. I was completely blown away by the shows and left with an experience that I would never forget! 😀
If you get a chance to see the UniverSoul Circus in person or online, please do so, you will not regret it. I have included a video below that gives a glimpse of said experience!
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. 🙌 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! 😊
Reminiscing on very good times earlier this year onboard a Carnival Cruise to the Western Caribbean😃🙌. The ship was at reduced capacity but everyone on board enjoyed the wonderful vibes.
It seems by looking at the video attached below that this is not an event that happened in 2020 but really of a long, forgotten time that was mask 😷 free. This was in fact, back in March 2020. That time was the calm before the proverbial storm!
I hope that you enjoy this video and I definitely hope to return to these times again. Until that time, stay safe and healthy😃!
