Fans Only: Smooth Criminal Vibes๐Ÿ˜Ž!

Few trips that I have taken have had epic performances. This is one of the best that I have come across:

I hope that you enjoyed this epic performance. It was so nicely done. If you have followed this blog, you already know, I am a big fan of Michael Jackson’s music.๐Ÿ˜ƒIn particular, Smooth Criminal is one one of my personal favorites.

This performance was captured at the Coco Bongo Club in Punta Cana, which is located in the Dominican Republic ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ด. One of the most beautiful places that you can travel to, highly recommend visiting. It is totally paradise on earth ๐ŸŒ.

The impersonator did a fantastic job channeling the King of Pop. His music continues to live on throughout the world. Check back for more travel adventures ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ƒ!

After Thanksgiving Feeling๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™Œ

Hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a great weekend as well! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™Œ Not sure if you can relate to this video or not but I sure can ๐Ÿ˜‚. Take a look:

Can you relate to this after Thanksgiving feeling? I sure can. Nothing else like the effects of a very appetizing Thanksgiving meal ๐Ÿฅ˜ and the tasty leftovers on the weekend. Sort of puts you in a very lazy mood.

This video was taken at the Houston Zoo during a recent vacation. I have never seen an animal this relaxed ๐Ÿ˜Ž. He is clearly relaxing and enjoying the day. Not sure how much he ate that day but maybe ๐Ÿค” it was an equivalent of a Thanksgiving dinner ๐Ÿ˜‚!

As the Thanksgiving holiday comes to an end, I hope that you enjoyed your holiday and that you enjoyed the weekend in its entirety! ๐Ÿ˜€

Waterfall Chaser๐Ÿ˜Ž!

How I love chasing waterfalls! I am on a personal mission to see as many as I possibly can. Here is one that I saw recently that I wanted to share with you:

Such a beautiful scene๐Ÿ˜ป. Hard to believe that I got this close to one. In Akaka State Park in Hawaii, there are two: Akaka Falls (this one) and Kalua Falls. They are so incredible to see in person. You will be completely blown away by the beauty!

Before going to this park, I had never seen a waterfall before other than in videos posted online. I was determined that this would be the trip that I would have this experience. I looked up the directions from my hotel room and made the trek to boldly go where I had never gone before ๐Ÿ˜‚.

What I did not realize at the time is how mountainous the Big Island of Hawaii is. As I got to higher elevations, my ears were popping and the road seemed more and more winding. When I saw the “Watch out for falling rocks” signs, uh ๐Ÿ™„ I got a little nervous ๐Ÿ˜ฌ.

Thankfully ๐Ÿ˜…, I did not encounter any falling rocks ๐Ÿชจ along the way but I captured some unbelievable views from within the park. It was a dream come true! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Touch the sky views๐Ÿ˜ƒ โœˆ๏ธ

Sky views are the best views๐Ÿ˜Š! Especially when you see sights like

Lake Dallas looks amazing from high above! Certainly something to behold for sure. A day in the air is just absolute happiness for me.๐Ÿ˜ƒ This particular day was nice and clear which made for a great time to capture this video.

Of course as we all know, not all sky views are worth capturing ๐Ÿ˜‚. I have spent a great deal of my airtime, in the past, not capturing these beautiful views. The inability to travel on last year, changed my perspective totally. I used to take these magical moments for granted, but now I no longer do.

I believe that I am not alone. This past weekend, while traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, I boarded a plane โœˆ๏ธ in which every window seat was taken! ๐Ÿ˜ƒThat has never happened in my travels before but it happened on that flight. Perhaps the pandemic has changed a lot of folks viewing habits.

Hope that you enjoy the video and that you will check back early and often for more travel adventures ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™Œ!

24k Cruise Views from Carnival๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Totally love cruise vibes and great music ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Nothing else like it. I am reminded of good times and great vibes onboard a cruise to the Western Caribbean. Wanted to share these views, they were incredible:

This view is from the Lido Deck onboard the Carnival Cruise Ship๐Ÿšข. Back in pre-pandemic times, this is what the atmosphere looked like. During the time we currently live in, it looks too crowded but certainly hard to believe that this was normal at one time.

To be completely honest, I would like to sail again when the times captured in the video return. No doubt, the industry is doing all that it can to keep people safe now, but pre-pandemic times, in my opinion, provided the most fun because you could interact with the most people.

Hopefully those times will return soon but in the meantime, there are other adventures to explore. Definitely encourage everyone to works, vacation and repeat, especially during the holidays. Does not matter where you go, just go ๐Ÿ˜‚. You owe it to yourself for all of the hard work during the course of the year!

Fun Zoo Vibes ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿป!

Lions, tigers and bears – oh my ๐Ÿ˜€! How I love the zoo. It does not matter where it is, I always find myself going to the zoo as a part of my travel experience๐Ÿ˜€If you have not been in a while or even if you have, check out this video, you will enjoy it:

Pretty cool vibes ๐Ÿ˜Ž. I had to capture this moment, the giraffe and ostriches were just having too much fun ๐Ÿคฉ. You rarely see these type of moments when you are visiting the zoo. They all found a fun way to pass the time.

Animals are just so amazing anyways. The more you are around them, the more that you understand that they are a lot like humans. I am an animal lover and love to see all sorts of animals, whether at zoos, on safaris, you name it.

Hope that you enjoyed the video๐Ÿ˜Š. You will see a few of these videos sprinkled here and there on this blog. Variety, after all, is the spice of life ๐Ÿ˜‚.

Shivers from 30,000 feet๐Ÿ˜€!

Being 30,000 feet in the air, still somehow, gives me the shivers ๐Ÿ˜‚! I have been traveling by plane for 23+ years but it still has that affect on me. Here is a beautiful sky view from that elevation :

Nothing like the beauty of the sky that provides such a sense of awe. Flying has become my second best mode of transportation. I love it and I love having the window seat to observe these type of views. As I mentioned in a previous post, due to the pandemic, I no longer take these views for granted. When the world came to a screeching halt on last year, I miss seeing these type of views.

I have made a personal vow to myself that I will see more of the world. No matter how much you have seen of it, you want to see even more. I long to cover the earth before it covers me ๐Ÿ˜‚. A lot of cool places still to explore and I plan on doing it.

If you were wondering where in the world this video was captured, it was captured above the great state of Texas. Texas is located below those clouds โ˜๏ธ. Hope that you enjoy these sky vibes and that you have a great day!

Canโ€™t Stop This Feeling๐Ÿ˜Š

Had to share this awesome video that I came across while I was looking through my archives. Certainly a great one to get you going to start the week:

Dinner cruises are just next level on Carnival! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ™ŒI could not believe the awesome choreography lessons that has to take place just to be able to perform in this manner. The first time that I experienced it, I was just blown away. I was determined to capture it on the next cruise that I took, which is this one.

Even though this particular video was taken during Pre-Covid times, it is a great pick me up for the day and an awesome memory of life as it was before the pandemic.

I look forward to this great feeling retuning again, hopefully very soon ๐Ÿ˜€! In the meantime, enjoy the vibes that are captured in the video above.

Cover me in Sunshine๐ŸŒž

Happy New Week to all ๐Ÿ˜Š! Hope that you had a wonderful October and that your November will be equally enjoyable. One thing about tropical locations, they are rarely affected by the seasons. They are covered in sunshine, year round. If you are a lover of sunshine and tropical ๐Ÿ–locations, you will definitely appreciate this beautiful video:

Wonderful beach vibes for sure. I have always envisioned retirement from a coastline like this. Being covered in sunshine in a tropical location such as Cozumel, would certainly make life so enjoyable ๐Ÿ˜€.

In the above video, you are seeing the view from my beach chair. I remember the feeling of the wind blowing and the sounds of children and adults enjoying this beautiful day. Nothing else like getting sun and having fun at the beach ๐Ÿ–.

In all of my travels, I have never come across a beach that I did not like. They are always beautiful and always provide much needed calm and relaxation. Something about the sky above and the sand beneath that gives you peace within ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ™Œ!

Vitamin Sea Mood๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒž

Vitamin Sea helps me be me!๐Ÿ˜ŽMy favorite paths in life have always led to the beach ๐Ÿ. Here is one of my favorite beaches to explore, right in the heart of Cozumel Mexico:

Such an amazing place to visit! I really love this place. If you have read any of my previous posts, you already know that Chankanaab is one of my favorite places. One of the things to realize when you visit Mexico is that depending where you are, not all of the beaches are swimmable beaches. The one that I have captured above is one of those.

As you can see from the video, the weather was absolutely perfect. We are very thankful for this weather now since we are now in the midst of the fall season. Great thing about visiting island locations is that the weather seems perfect all the time ๐Ÿ˜‚. That is why the phrase “snowbirds” is so popular during the fall and the winter.

I encourage you to “find your beach ๐Ÿ–” wherever that may be, particularly during the fall and winter seasons. Not too late to join the snow bird ๐Ÿฆ… club.
