Ocean Eyes – Tropical 🐠 🌴Mood

Ocean views are the best views by far 😎! Incredible sights and unbelievable sounds provide such a wonderful refuge from the everyday life routine that we all have grown accustomed to. If you need a great reminder of the peace and tranquillity that such a location can provide, look no further than this link: youtube.com/shorts/Npc3oB9xgHw

There is just something magical about getting your daily dose of vitamin sea that calms the mind and soothes the soulπŸ™Œ. It is your “serenity now” moment that provides peace within under the sky above.

It really doesn’t matter how many times that I have been to the beach, where the beach is located or when I have last visited the beach. It is always priority one to get back as soon as I can! My best paths in life, have led to the beach somewhere 🌴.

If you have followed this blog, you know this already and you have seen pictures and videos from beaches from various locations. As I continue to travel and even in times that I am not traveling, I will share posts such as these as personal investments in experiences, that have made my life so much richerπŸ˜ŠπŸ™Œ!

Hawaii or Mars? See for yourself πŸ˜ƒ

Never have I visited a place that has looked like it does not belong on this planet, until now. Take a look at the Chains of Crater Road, located near the Volcano National Park: youtube.com/watch

It looks like another planet πŸ˜‚. Such otherworldly views that, if I had not traveled there and seen it for myself, I probably would not have believed it. What a magnificent place!

Turns out that this unbelievable place is a very popular hiking spot for locals and visitors. Almost seems like it should be on the old show: Ripley’s Believe It or Not.

Before traveling to Hawaii, I had no idea that places like these exist. It is a natural wonder surrounded by other natural wonders on the Big Island of Hawaii. You will totally be amazed if you should ever have the opportunity to visit this remarkable place.

Volcano πŸŒ‹ Vent – Stand Back!

Coming in hot on a a Monday! Hope that you have a wonderful week. Wanted to take the time to share a cool experience that I had viewing a volcano vent for the first time outside of Mount Kilauea😊. If you would like to see more, please check out the video: youtube.com/shorts/gtO1DzPQElE

As you can see from the video, the steam form the volcano is coming in very hot πŸ₯΅ so you most definitely have to stand back! What you may or may not be able to tell from the video is that it is so very cold around the volcano. That is why we are dressed like we are with hoodies, jackets etc.

It is hard to believe that you can experience cold in Hawaii, but surprisingly you can. The Big Island of Hawaii, in addition to the beautiful beaches and warm weather, also has mountains and higher elevations which contributes to the colder weather. When you visit Hawaii, expect to pack shorts and also jackets and hoodies 😊. This is totally based upon the type of experience you are looking to have.

I like to take it all in, so I pack for the beach and for visiting the mountains and volcanoes. You only live once, so why not πŸ˜‚. Makes for a lifetime of memories that you can share which makes your experience so much richer.

Carnival Cruise (Pre-Covid): Dance πŸ’ƒ πŸ•ΊπŸΎ Vibes

If you are in need of fun vibes, look no further than this video, which was taken on a Carnival Cruise back in the good old days prior to the pandemic: youtube.com/shorts/8YMW4STq5ag

Hard to believe that there were times like these, but these times actually existedπŸ˜ƒ. My sincere hope is that these times return soon. It is always good to reflect on good times especially during not so good times.

This video is just plain fun 🀩! This was part of the sail away celebration that Carnival was having, as we prepared to set sail to the Western Caribbean. Little did we know at the time, how much fun we would have visiting Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel.

I encourage you, if you have not experienced a cruise or even if you have, to enjoy this type of experience once or again. Looking at this video, puts me mentally back on that ship, enjoying all of the sights and soundsπŸ˜ƒ

Keep Calm and Wobble πŸ˜ƒπŸπŸ–!

Nothing else like dancing in a group. πŸ˜ƒ Couple that with being on vacation at a beach and you have excellent memories. Such is the case with my first and only visit to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Certainly not my last for sure.

The wobble is a very iconic dance that is widely known by almost everyone. This particular video today shows the fun that I experienced doing the wobble after dinner on the beach. Certainly an experience like none other that I have had. This beach was located onsite at the Hilton Rose Hall Hotel in case you may want to visit.

I hope that you enjoy the vibes here and make sure, by all means, to Keep Calm and Wobble! πŸ’ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ”₯πŸ‡―πŸ‡²

Jamaican Beach Wobble

Paradise Found: Beach πŸ– vibes from Hawaii

Paradise vibes are in full effect! Check it out here: youtube.com/watch

My favorite paths in life have always led to the beach. There is nothing on this earth 🌍 like it! The sun above and the sand beneath gives you so much peace within. Being there only increases your desire to return.

That is certainly the case for this beautiful black sand beach located on the Big Island of Hawaii. If you have seen my previous posts on the beautiful Punalu’u Beach πŸ–, you know exactly what I am talking about. The view is an awesome mixture of fun and sun that you just cannot afford to miss. I stood amazed at the vivid colors on display. You will perhaps see no other thing like it on God’s green earth.

If you have a chance to visit this summer, you will see that it is indeed beautiful 🀩. Until that travel time, feel free to take a look at the video above and my previous posts.

Michael Jackson – Encore performance of Bad 😎

Bad is one of my favorite songs from my Michael Jackson playlist. Here is the choreography from that song performed by a Michael Jackson impersonator and his band in Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/WG6ZQbV7p5M

Could not help but wax nostalgic listening to this music. Truly one of the greatest artists of our time. His music continues to live on and will do so for generations to come. I certainly hope that you enjoy the music above and check out this blog for other travel related content!

Michael Jackson Smooth Criminal Vibes from Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ˜€πŸ™ŒπŸ•ΊπŸΎ

Today I included a throwback from a few year ago! An excellent Michael Jackson impersonation located hereπŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/19-AFE9QaEU

It was wonderful seeing this right before my visit eyes. I remember it as if it was yesterday. That particular night at the Hilton Rose Hall was one to remember. I grew up as a Michael Jackson fan so I knew all of his songs. Although he passed away back in 2009, his music continues to live on.

In addition to this song, Smooth Criminal, all of my favorite songs were performed as if I requested them myself. Could not beat these types of vibes anywhere you go. I was very impressed with this performance and I hope that you will be also. Have a great day!

Dancing into Friday like this πŸ˜ŽπŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΎ!

TGIF Vibes are on full display here in the new video just uploaded to my channel: youtube.com/shorts/OsgEMBO2NsU

There are some weeks that you are particularly glad that you made it to the end of. This is one of those weeks for me. For me it started with a busy last weekend that spilled over to an even busier week. Well, we made it here and I am certainly looking forward to re-energizing over the weekend.

With that in mind, I can’t stop the feeling that the above video gives. I was aboard Carnival Cruise line en-route to the Western Caribbean when this dance party took place. I cannot remember if it was on a Friday or not but it is needed every day of the week and twice on Sunday πŸ˜‚.

In the days in which we live in, it is hard to find a whole lot to celebrate πŸŽ‰ as every time on the news, there is depressing news after depressing news. I hope that this provides a glimpse of better times behind and better days ahead! Have a great day.πŸ˜ƒ

Balcony Goals – Hilton Waikoloa – Ocean Tower πŸ˜»πŸŒ΄β˜€οΈπŸ–πŸ™Œ

Look no further for balcony goals than right hereπŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/cxa-_HTUaIo. What a magnificent place to spend an excellent vacation. The place is totally heaven on earth 🌍 and I wholeheartedly recommend it! πŸ˜€ Certainly the pictures do not do it justice – you have to see for yourself.

Imagine waking up to a view like this everyday. Views like these, in my mind, is why people travel. It is an awareness of how really small we are in this big wonderful world. In addition to this view, I remember waking up to the sound of the birds 🐦 chirping. The resort is currently being renovated to a timeshare property so make your plans accordingly if you plan to travel to the Big Island of Hawaii soon.

Hope that you enjoy the video in the link above and that you have a great day as well! Stay safe and healthy πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ™Œ
