If you are looking for an escape from the bitterly cold weather of winter, I would like to suggest spending a week or so on the beautiful island of Jamaica 🇯🇲 😃! The island has so much to offer and you will instantly love the great people, food and the beautiful beaches. This location may be just what the doctor ordered 😂:youtube.com/shorts/2JskdSjj3Qo
I have visited the island 🏝️ twice now and I have done different excursions each time. Although it is a small island, you will not get bored 🥱. There is so much to do and so little time to do it 😂 ❤️. You will essentially run out of time before running out of things to do.
The Hilton Rose Hall is definitely a spectacular place to stay while visiting Montego Bay. The hotel is top notch and has something to offer for everyone. It is also all inclusive, which in my book, makes it an even better experience 😃.
If you are a snow ❄️ bird 🦢, who is looking to move to warmer climates during the spring, you are sure to enjoy the magnificent island of Jamaica. You can experience not only a break from the cold temperature, but some much needed relaxation!❤️
Sailing is a relaxing experience 😃So relaxing that if you do it once, you will want to do it again. It is certainly an incredible experience that you are sure to enjoy. My experience sailing/cruising has been, up to this point, on Carnival. Carnival does an excellent job of keeping you relaxed and keeping you engaged during your entire voyage. Here is just a snippet of the fun vibes that you are sure to enjoy during your voyage: youtube.com/shorts/UVWuWfXKuW8
So very fun and very entertaining at the same time. Could not believe my eyes when I got on the ship 🚢 but I quickly realized that this first sail away entertainment, was just preparing me for the fun that would come everyday during the cruise experience.
It was a lot of fun, to say the least. There is something for kids of all ages to do. Really the only thing that you will manage is your time to do everything there is to offer. Cruising is totally next level and you will leave the experience, leaps and bounds better than you started it!
So if you have been on the fence about taking a cruise for 2023 – this is absolutely your sign to do so. Cruises are taking new voyages and the sooner that you book, the cheaper it will be 😃!
Absolutely lost my heart in beautiful Cozumel ❤️❤️🚁! If you have not been to Cozumel, do yourself a favor and go. It is an excellent time to go, particularly right now, for a lot of folks dreaming of warm climates during this time of the year 😃. Fact of the matter is, Cozumel is perfect, any time of the year😃. This is especially true if you visit by cruise ship – which I did. Here is just a snippet of what you can expect: youtube.com/shorts/uVitg8KjkLg
Cannot describe the sense of euphoria when I stepped off that ship to embark on my excursion in Cozumel. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew that I would have an awesome time there. I certainly did – visiting Chankanaab. If you are interested in what Chankanaab looks like, look no further than this blog, in which I have provided pictures and videos to peak your traveling interest.
If you are looking to become a snow bird and fly or sail south for the winter 🥶. You will most certainly enjoy the gorgeous views and vibes of Cozumel, Mexico😃!
Sailing ⛵️ the Na Pali Coast is so very beautiful 🤩! Touring the Na Pali Coast from above, is just absolutely phenomenal. There is nothing in the world like the view of this world famous coast – as you can attest to from this video: youtube.com/shorts/ap5GaUB5BEo
This view is amazing and no doubt, a once in a lifetime view. The beautiful island of Kauai is undoubtedly one of the best kept secrets of the Hawaiian 🌺 islands. To say that I was shocked by the stunning views is an understatement. I had never seen anything like this in all of my travels. It honestly, takes your breath away and makes you a storyteller at the same time.
The holidays are right around the corner and what a wonderful Christmas gift, a trip to Kauai would be 😀! In the interest of transparency, I actually booked a 2022 trip to Kauai, in December 2021. It was sort of a Christmas gift 🎁 to myself. I had never been and wanted to go. I had heard wonderful things about the island from a friend of mine, so I could not wait to get there.
I hope that you will make your 2023 vacation plans by giving yourself the gift 🎁 of Kauai 😂!
I am looking forward to taking another cruise pretty soon😎! Hard to believe that it has been a while since I have been on a Carnival Cruise. Of course, Covid had a lot to do with this – but I am so very glad that things are starting to look up😃 . Sailing is absolutely a passion for me. There was a time that it was not – but thankfully, that is a thing of the past. Here is what you can expect from a cruise experience: youtube.com/shorts/5YTzN99efwM
If you have followed this blog for some time, you already know that this blog has its number of cruise posts. Thankfully, I captured a lot of precious moments down through the years to share with you all.
This particular cruise set sail for the Western Caribbean, which included: Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel. Before setting sail, there is always a sail away party 🎊 which is what I captured in the video above. It is as much fun, as you see in the video and so much more!
Life is a beach 🏖😎! My favorite paths in life has always led to the beach 🏖. It is one of the best past times there is. I have never seen a beach that I have not loved. Maybe it is the warm sunshine or possibly the waves hitting against the shore😃. Whatever it is – I need it always. Vacations are made to be experienced at the beach. It is so very relaxing and provides a proper respite from the regular day to day drudgery (at times) of life. Here is one such beach that brings back so many fond memories: youtube.com/shorts/yFbIHu0f2Mo
If you have never been to Jamaica, make your plans to get there ASAP 😃! You will enjoy the gorgeous views, beautiful sunrises and the warm hospitality of the Jamaican people. Make no mistake about it, this is a trip that needs to be taken. If you love beach 🏖 vacations – you will be hard pressed to find a more beautiful place to experience it.
I love the nice blue water of Hawaii shores😎! If you have never had the opportunity to visit Hawaii, it is absolutely a must see. You will be blown away by the incredible beauty that Hawaii has to offer. Here is just a glimpse of what you could expect from visiting this amazing island 🏝: youtube.com/shorts/N1JXAmleKMw
From looking at this video, I instantly go back to the wonderful time that I had on this cruise. I am a cruiser for sure! In fact, I have never been on one that I have not liked or enjoyed. I have been on many and I look forward to going on many more. It is a thrill of a lifetime to be out there on the water and in this instance, to be able to see the beautiful mountains out on the horizon.
Kauai is one of the best kept secrets. If I had known how beautiful it is, I would have gotten here sooner. 😂 What a wonderful adventure that it turned out to be. I encourage everyone to check it out for yourselves! You will not be disappointed 😎.
Nothing like a great dance party to get things going 😍😃! I love this experience, whether on land or by sea. I am reminded of a great dance 💃 party that took place during a recent cruise. It was so totally epic that I still remember how much fun that I had from the great experience. Here is how it got started: youtube.com/shorts/teYB4OTSAaE
I will forever be a great fan of cruises 🚢. I am partial to Carnival Cruises but that is only because I have not tried any of the others 😂. I plan to be more active on the cruise front and try the various other cruise lines. It will be interesting to understand the similarities and the differences across the various cruise lines.
This dance party 👯♀️ was the first one that I had the pleasure of experiencing and the first that I actually recorded also. I am a big fan of making videos while I am on vacation. Of course, you probably figured that by now, 😂 since I have this travel blog and other travel related social media accounts (@travelfitguru). Find and follow me on all social media for more😃.
If you have never seen the window views from a Carnival Cruise ship, you are in luck 😂. Here is a view from my room : youtube.com/shorts/gxdsqzzL6cs
This is such a gorgeous view 😃❤️! Imagine waking up to this type of view. If you have never taken a cruise 🚢, you are well overdue. In talking with folks, down through the years, many people would like to go on a cruise but think that it is either: too expensive or that there is not enough to do.
I can speak to both concerns. Cruises are economical because you have the option of paying over time. This was a great sell for me because that was one of my concerns also. I remember booking this trip in August and paying for it in easy installments from August until January.
There is absolutely so many things to do, once you are on a cruise 🚢. From comedy shows, Las Vegas style shows, concerts etc. you will love the cruise experience 😀. There is something to do for kids and kids at heart.
Did I mention how relaxing the experience is? I was a stark critic of going on a cruise and it only took one cruise for me to see the light 😂. I have been on more cruises 🚢 since then and I have enjoyed them all.
Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you will plan a cruise soon 🔜!
For most of the country, we are experiencing cooler if not colder weather. It is certainly a welcomed relief from the brutally warm summer. If you are interested in experiencing summer in the winter 🥶, look no further than an indoor water park – like Kalahari 😎! Kalahari is a world of fun, not a world 🌎 away: youtube.com/shorts/rkSSukGgxIM
The views are incredible and so are the great rides 😃. I can definitely say that there is something for everyone. The kids will enjoy it, but also the kids at heart ❤️. I was very impressed with the water park and the resort as a whole.
In addition to the water park, there is a very large arcade. The name of the arcade is TomFoolery 😂. You can spend so much time right there. I am a gamer at heart, so I could not help but spend so much time there. Kalahari is definitely tops on my list to visit and you will love it also 😎!
