Beautiful View from Here๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ!

Waimea Canyon is such a beautiful place๐Ÿ˜€. If you have never been, do yourself a favor and go ๐Ÿ˜‚! Trust me, you will definitely enjoy it. Here is a beautiful view that I captured:

Isn’t it just lovely ๐Ÿ˜Š? It was such a magnificent experience. On that particular day, thankfully, the park was not packed. Matter of fact, the only people in the park, are the people in the video ๐Ÿ˜‚. What you are seeing in the video is the lookout deck for Waimea Canyon. As you might guess, this is an excellent place to not only see the canyon but also to take lots of pictures and videos!

I was just impressed with how massive the canyon is. It is an absolute beauty with all of the colors that you see. For the truly adventurous, there are hiking trails that you can hike on. I did try to hike for a mile or so, downhill. That wasn’t too bad until I had to hike back uphill to get back to my car ๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿ˜‚!

Hope you will consider a visit to Waimea Canyon in the near future. It is a fun place to take the family or to venture by yourself ๐Ÿ˜Š.

Paradise Found – Amazing ๐Ÿ˜ป โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ!

Beaches are perhaps the best way to relax there is๐Ÿ˜Ž! Hearing the sound of the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ sets you instantly at peace. Something about that sky above and sand beneath that gives you wonderful peace within. Here is a short clip from my experience:

The sea was a beautiful shade of blue on that day and I was so blessed to be there๐Ÿ˜„! After weeks of working, it was just what the doctor ordered. Heaven is not found on earth ๐ŸŒ, but I believe that there are pieces of heaven here on earth ๐Ÿ˜‚.

The place captured in the video is called Spouting Horn Park. You may wonder,why is it called Spouting Horn? Well, I will share a future video that shows why. Essentially spouting water comes from the rocks nearby. You may want to Google the legend of the Spouting Horn ๐Ÿ˜Š, it is so very interesting ๐Ÿง.

Hope that you are enjoying the first day of June๐Ÿ˜„! Stay tuned for the video of the Spouting Horn in a future post๐Ÿ˜Š

Cake by the Ocean Vibes๐Ÿ˜ปโค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ!

Visiting Cozumel Mexico was a dream come true. I have always heard great things about Cozumel and Mexico in general. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. The beach views were absolutely beautiful. Here is a clip from that wonderful experience:

Hope that you enjoyed the clip. The Beach views were just spectacular๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Hanging out there, just have me the best sense of peace. When you give everything that you got – working a job from week to week, you look forward to time away. Out of all of my travel experiences, I have never gone on a vacation and regretted it. I have come back better and more refreshed, every single time.๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Cozumel is by far, one of the most popular vacation spots in Mexico. It is easily in the top 5 locations to visit. In the clip that I shared, this beach ๐Ÿ– is located in a place called Chankanaab. If you have followed this blog for some time, you have certainly heard of it and have seen videos from it. If you haven’t seen the videos, I certainly encourage you to take a look the previous videos.

In fact, if you are looking for a great place to visit this summer, consider Cozumel as a possible destination.๐Ÿ˜ƒ It is a gorgeous city and the views are to die for!๐Ÿ˜ปโค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธ- Omg ๐Ÿ˜†!

Cabo San Lucas is an absolutely gorgeous place๐Ÿ˜! I cannot wait to go back one of these days. The views are totally next level and it will leave a wonderful impression upon you. Although I have sailed various places around the world ๐ŸŒŽ, this particular expedition provided one of the most magnificent views that I have ever seen. Here is just a glimpse of the views that I saw on this incredible voyage:

The rock structure that you saw in the video is called, Neptune’s Finger. If it looks amazing on the video, it looks even more amazing in person ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I could not believe that we got as close as we did to it. It is one of the more iconic structures that you will see, sailing the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

On this voyage, I also got a chance to see the magnificent, Arc of Cabo San Lucas. That video is located on this blog, just in case you are interested in viewing it. I was completely awestruck looking at that magnificent structure. The water was particularly rough during that part of the tour, so that video has a flair of excitement and adventure.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you are enjoying a great weekend. Check back early and often for more travel adventures!

Waterfall Vibes ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

I am a waterfall chaser!๐Ÿ˜Š Love to capture them wherever I go. I have been blessed to travel to a number of places that have waterfalls and I have not been disappointed โ˜น๏ธ. Here is Wailua Falls – which is located in Kauai, Hawaii:

Hope that you enjoyed the beautiful video๐Ÿ˜Š! Waterfalls are amazing wonders of nature. You stand awestruck when you see them and want to take as many pictures as possible ๐Ÿ˜‚. Thankfully on this recent trip, I was able to capture this one in addition to Opaeka Falls which you will see on a future post.

On this particular day, it was almost as if everybody from Kauai converged on this area at the same time. The small road to see this wonder was completely packed with tourists. I was aboard a tour bus so we thankfully were able to park in one of the few parking spots reserved for tour buses.

As the video pans out from the waterfall to the water below, you will see a small beach ๐Ÿ– area where a few people were hanging out. Turns out that these folks found a trail to hike down in order to get to that area. Since that activity was not a part of the tour experience, I stayed on the lookout road.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will check back for other travel blog experiences, as I continue to cover the earth ๐ŸŒ before it covers me ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Carnival Cruise Vibes๐Ÿšข- Happy Friday๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ!

Carnival Cruise Line just has a way of making dreams come true. I have sailed them in the past and I always have been impressed with their commitment to customer service. I have always felt as if I was getting the best experience offered and consequently, I have enjoyed my experience cruising. Here is only a sample of what you can expect, when you choose fun ๐Ÿคฉ:

When all is said and done, I would like to have cruised on not only Carnival, but also Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess etc. I guess you can say that I am a cruise addict. I must admit that I totally am ๐Ÿ˜‚. Admitting it is definitely a great first step ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Sure, taking an airplane to various destinations would get you there quicker but for so many times in life, it is more about the journey than the destination. The journey provides so many memories that will stay etched in your mind for years to come.

This particular video was taken while I was standing out on the Lido Deck, looking at the beautiful water ๐Ÿ’ฆ. I could remember this moment now as if it was yesterday. I did not have any idea at that time, of the many adventures that would take place in the upcoming days of my journey to the Western Caribbean. Feel free to check out this blog for adventures in Costa Maya, Belize and Cozumel๐Ÿ˜ƒโค๏ธ!

Message in a Bottle Vibes๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ”

Sailing is one of my favorite past times. ๐Ÿ˜ŠOnce I retire one of these days, I look forward to life cruising around the world ๐ŸŒŽ as I venture on even more vacations. In the meantime, I plan to work, travel and repeat as many times as possible ๐Ÿ˜‚. Here is a short video from a recent sailing adventure – hold on tight ๐Ÿ˜Š:

I was trying very hard to keep my balance in this video. The deck was slippery as the boat increased its speed. Thankfully, no one was injured in the making of this video and I was able to successfully capture the video while keeping my balance at the same time ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘!

I look back at this memory with much joy. I viewed so many pictures on Trip Advisor (which is where I booked this excursion) and assumed that the pictures captured everything that I would see on my adventure. Boy was I wrong ๐Ÿ˜‚. As with any great experience, you have to be there to really get the most out of it.

I saw incredible views (some of which, are captured in this blog) that were just breathtaking. I learned while I was there that people relocate in high numbers when they vacation in Kauai. I have a better understanding why that is the case now. You absolutely fall in love with the weather, the gorgeous views and the easy going lifestyle. The Kauai experience is truly to die for ๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Breakfast in Paradise ๐Ÿ˜Žโค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

Perhaps one of the best views that I have ever had at breakfast, is right here:

Imagine having delicious food here and having such a wonderful view๐Ÿ˜ƒ. That was my situation while vacationing on the beautiful island of Kauai. Storm โ›ˆ clouds aside, it was a view that I could get used too.

The location where I captured this video is the Hilton Garden Inn in Kauai, Hawaii. Should your travel plans take you to Kauai in the near and not so distant future, consider adding this place to your vacation plans. It is certainly a bargain compared to more pricier hotels in Kauai.

What you are seeing is the garden area of the hotel, which is located right outside of the restaurant. On this particular day, I was enjoying the top notch breakfast at there and wanted to capture the beautiful view. When you take a picture or video, it tends to last longer ๐Ÿ˜‚!

Tropical ๐ŸŒด Vibes for the Weekend ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Tropical vibes are the best vibes ๐Ÿ˜Š! I love traveling to tropical places and experiencing tropical adventures๐Ÿ˜ƒ. For me, I could retire on a tropical island somewhere and live happily ever after. That’s my retirement plan for sure ๐Ÿ˜‚. The toughest thing for me will be figuring out which tropical island that I would like to retire on.

If there is ever one island that stands out in my mind, it would be the beautiful island of Kauai, which absolutely took my breath away๐Ÿ˜ƒ. I have never seen an island as beautiful as I saw visiting Kauai. To say that it is the number one travel location that I have ever visited, is spot on. Here is just a glimpse of the type of beauty that you will see there:

The video above, captures some of the Smith Fern Grotto, which is a must see when visiting Kauai. If you are a lover of all things tropical, look no further than the Smith Fern Grotto. In order to get here, you have to take a 15-20 minute boat ride and walk through a small forest to get there!

Sounds like an adventure for sure and you are sure to enjoy the sights and the sounds of visiting this beautiful place. Hope that you will make your plans soon to visit.

Cabo Sailing โ›ต๏ธinto the Weekend๐Ÿคฉ

Hope you are having a great day today ๐Ÿ˜! The weekend is fast approaching and some of you may be experiencing the weekend already. If you have ever been to Cabo San Lucas, it is such a magnificent place! It has probably gotten a bad reputation over the years with people acting badly there but it is such a gorgeous place to go. I have only been there once but it left quite an indelible impression on me.

In addition to camel ๐Ÿซ riding , for the first time, I got a chance to sail the Sea of Cortez on one of the magnificent voyages of my life. Seeing all of the sights and sounds of Cabo, made me look forward to coming back soon. Cabo is one of the best locations that I have ever visited and for one of the reasons captured right here:

The magnificent rock structure that you saw in the video is called Neptune’s Finger and aptly so because it resembles a finger ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was a beautiful day at sea on that day and I captured many other views previously in other blog posts. Please feel free to scroll this blog for other sea adventures!
