Waterfall Magic from Hawaii ๐Ÿ’ฆ ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Akaka Falls State Park is as an absolute dream ๐Ÿ˜ด. After seeing so many posts down through the years about waterfalls, this park provided me the perfect opportunity to see waterfalls up close and personal. Here is the link to one of the best that Akaka Falls had to offer: youtube.com/shorts/kxw2xMDRT7k

It is just a magnificent waterfall for sure. The name of this one is Kahuna Falls, and it is a big kahuna ๐Ÿ˜‚! This particular day, I braved the very heavy rain ๐ŸŒง in order to see this beautiful sight. Once you park on-site, you have to hike the rest of the way to see the waterfalls.

As I have mentioned before in a previous post, the waterfalls are at higher elevations so it will certainly test your conditioning. I remember huffing and puffing ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ as I went from one waterfall to the other. I made it safely to both and was able to capture beautiful videos as a result.

The “Big Kahuna” was so beautiful and it is the smaller of the waterfalls that are located there. Feel free to check my previous posts for a look at the even bigger Kahuna – Akaka Falls. It is truly ginormous! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ

For Infinity and Beyond ๐Ÿคฉ

Lovely views are made to be shared๐Ÿ˜ƒ! I appreciate every time that I have the opportunity to travel and see views that I have never seen before. Most trips that I have taken within the last few years, have been to tropical ๐ŸŒด locations. These trips have provided picture perfect views like this one: youtube.com/shorts/qkJuymFrSVA

It is so very lovely to be able to see this first hand. The beautiful colors of the rocks with the contrast of the beautiful water is just heavenly. Absolutely love travel from infinity and beyond ๐Ÿ˜‚. This breathtaking view is courtesy of Kona, Hawaii – which I had the pleasure of visiting.

Nothing quite like waking up in a place that you have never been. Since I am more of a morning person, I particularly love the early morning sunrises and the beautiful walks along the ocean shore. I truly believe that these early morning moments provide the start to a calm, still, peaceful day๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

Hope that you’ve enjoyed the video above and that you visit this blog, early and often, for new travel adventures!

Paradise Found-Omg๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Island views are the best views, bar none! ๐Ÿ˜Š My last few vacations have been to tropical locations. Here is one of the best beaches that I have ever visited: youtube.com/shorts/4cgoEGbEgxM

Hope that you appreciate the beauty of this spectacular video. The contrast of black sand and blue water is just exceptional. Looking at this video takes me instantly back to sitting on the beach ๐Ÿ–. Especially experiencing such a cool day at home on today.

This is definitely paradise and I am so glad that I found it on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was so very impressive and a must visit if you are looking for vacation options in 2022. If you are thinking of visiting the Big Island of Hawaii soon, be sure to check out other posts like these on my blog.

Michael Jackson Vibes๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽต

One of my favorite artists of all time is the King of Pop๐Ÿ˜€! His music still lives on, even though he is no longer with us. To my surprise, when I was visiting Jamaica, I was able to attend a concert at my hotel: Hilton Rose Hall. Here is a snippet of the performance: youtube.com/shorts/I_lqCaIU7rY

It was a great impersonation of Michael Jackson, down to the make up and dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿพmoves. He was truly one of a kind but so was this hotel ๐Ÿจ! If you ever venture to Montego Bay, Jamaica, I highly recommend staying at this hotel. It has wonderful performances, like the one above, and it is luxury personified. It has all of the amenities that you would want and the best part, it is all inclusive.

This has been my only all inclusive experience throughout my travels. It is totally the way to go for sure. All of the food and drinks are included in the price of the hotel. Cannot get any better than that.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

If you would like to see the other Smooth Criminal performance that I captured from this concert, feel free to look at the previous posts in my blog. Have a great day!

Beautiful Destination๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations! This was certainly the case going through all of the travel restrictions in 2020 and waiting for that next travel adventure. Thankfully, it was Hawaii, one of the most beautiful destinations in the world ๐ŸŒŽ. While riding as a passenger, I captured this incredible stroll along the coastline in downtown Kona, Hawaii: youtube.com/shorts/86mIOxgIlWE

If only I can see views like these every day ๐Ÿ˜‚! These are views that you cannot wait to see when you get there and views you cannot wait to share once you have left. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the reason why you travel ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. There are so many places to see and just so little time to see them.

This particular stroll was part of a sight seeing tour that I booked while vacationing there in Kona. This tour took you through downtown Kona, to a coffee farm (Kona has the best coffee), to a hometown bakery, a black sand beach (I have videos on my blog) and lastly the tour took us to the only active volcano on the Hawaiian Islands, Mount Kilauea.

If all that was not enough, the tour provided lunch and dinner. Pretty impressive huh ๐Ÿค”? I thought so and would happily do this tour again to soak in more of the spectacular views. I highly recommend doing this tour to see all there is to Kona.

The island is truly remarkable and it has made me even more of a fan of Hawaii. Truly in a class by itself for vacations!

New Years Vibes: Best Wishes๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Happy 2022 to all of you๐Ÿ˜€! Wishing you all a safe and prosperous New Year. Thanks for following my blog and for the comments that I have received in 2021. I am certainly ready for more and more travel adventures in 2022 and I hope that you are as well. I have composed a recap of my Kalahari Resorts visit and I would like to share it with you: youtube.com/shorts/0bXFikwSCkI

Hope that you enjoyed the video. Kalahari, both the beautiful resort and the indoor water park, greatly exceeded my expectations!๐Ÿ˜ƒ If you have never been, hopefully you will take a trip in this new year. The one that I visited, opened up in November 2020 and it is located in Round Rock, Texas. There are other locations here in the USA so there should be one near where you live.

Did I mentioned that it is indoors ๐Ÿ˜‚? Which means that you can experience the whole water park experience in the climate control confines of the indoors, no matter what the weather may be outdoors. Perfect escape from the frigid cold weather that you may be experiencing in other parts of the USA or otherwise.

Wishing you and your families all the best that this New Year has to offer and I encourage each of you to work, vacation and repeat as often as you can this year!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™Œ

New Years Eve 2021: Travel Highlights ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™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! ๐Ÿ˜†

Unstoppable Holiday Views๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ

I hope that you are taking some quality time off this time of the year to unwind, relax and rejuvenate for the year ahead.๐Ÿ˜ƒThis year has provided its share of ups and downs but nonetheless, we are still here! Here is a wonderful holiday adventure in Cozumel, just in case you need the break from the cold ๐Ÿฅถ weather or just a reminder of the summer, feel free to check it out: youtube.com/shorts/8n4TOQkF_Ik

Cozumel never looked as beautiful as it did on that day. It is such an amazing wonder that must been seen in order to adequately appreciate ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! If you have never been to Cozumel, do yourself a favor and go. It is truly an amazing place to visit. I have seen some great places in my travels but this one is truly one of the best.

If you are a snow bird ๐Ÿฆ…, you may consider taking a trip to this beautiful place. It is what is needed for rest and relaxation. Especially at the Dolphin ๐Ÿฌ Discovery, which is where this video was taken. If you fancy, swimming with the dolphins, this is most certainly your place. You can also do some much needed shopping, tequila tasting, explore the beach among other things.

This place really has it all for you to thoroughly enjoy yourself and capture memories that are sure to last a lifetime! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œโ˜๏ธ

Counting Down to another year๐Ÿ˜€!

Another year is almost upon us๐Ÿ˜€! Hard to believe that 2022 is quickly coming on the horizon. We are in the final week of 2021, and as we prepare for lift off – here is a look at the International Space Station Exhibit from NASA: youtube.com/shorts/9dvMkv-DSaU

Isn’t this just so cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž? I enjoyed visiting this magnificent exhibit and definitely encourage you all to visit when you are able to do so safely. I have been blessed to visit multiple NASA locations and I have enjoyed all of them. You can easily spend hours upon hours visiting the beautiful, out of this world exhibits and still want to see more ๐Ÿ˜‚.

I really do not have a favorite location, they are all so very interesting. Space always provides so much mystery and intrigue. We all would like to boldly go where we have never been before. Thankfully, with SpaceX and Blue Origin, we are getting to the point where space exploration is a reality for everyone.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you are getting prepared to lift off to a new year, 2022! ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’ฅ

Christmas is finally here! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Hope that you have enjoyed Christmas 2021. I have enjoyed spending quality time with my family and eating some great food ๐Ÿ˜‹ Take a look at this beautiful view from Hawaii with some great Christmas vibes for good measure: youtube.com/shorts/PncHXf1F2kM

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year! Whether you are spending it alone or with family, enjoy every single bit of it. Holidays are a vital part of the work, vacation, repeat process.๐Ÿ˜ƒ Everyone needs to take a break from the everyday routine. Does a body good for sure.

The video above was taken on the Big Island of Hawaii at Punalu’u Beach ๐Ÿ–. Never have found a beach that I did not like ๐Ÿ‘. This is one of the best that I have seen.

Enjoy the video and enjoy the rest of Christmas ๐ŸŽ…!
