Views for Days and Nights β˜€οΈ 🌝

Sometimes when you are feeling just a little creative, you start editing pictures and video to more accurately capture the beautiful moment that is appearing before your eyes. I felt that way when I captured the following video:

When you are not accustomed to views like these on a daily or nightly basis, creativity takes over πŸ˜‚. It is for that reason that I never take for granted the opportunity to travel because it is definitely a luxury. Nothing makes me feel more closer to myself and to the world.

This particular beauty was captured from the balcony of the Hilton Waikoloa Village- Ocean Tower. What a wonderful stay this was. I will always remember it because I was awaken by the birds πŸ¦… chirping every morning πŸ˜ƒ which was pretty cool. No matter where I have traveled before in the world 🌎, that has never been my experience.

I hope that you enjoy the above video and that you have a great day! πŸ˜ƒ

Ticket 🎟 to ParadiseπŸŒ΄πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ

There is a great, really old song (1977) called “Two tickets to paradise” by Eddie Money. If you were offered one ticket to paradise, where would you go? I want to share my idea of paradise on earth and it is captured in the following video:

Isn’t it lovely πŸ₯°? I must admit, before this trip, Hawaii had been #1 on my bucket list since I was a kid. I have always wanted to go and experience the feeling of being in paradise. As a kid, you don’t have any idea of how or when this will happen, but you just “don’t stop believing” (title of another great song πŸŽ΅πŸ˜€) that it will happen one day.

Sometimes dreams do come true and the perfect alignment of time, resources and ability opens up the opportunity to discover and experience a place that you have never been before but have always wanted to go.

This particular day, as captured perfectly by the video, was a perfect day to experience the wonderful Hawaiian weather and its amazing tropical 🐠 🌴 views. If you can believe it, those views were from the beach at the hotel πŸ˜ƒ.Looks like views taken from a particular excursion but they are not.

Get that one or two tickets 🎟 to paradise, wherever that may be (Bali, Bora Bora, New York, London etc.) You absolutely deserve it and it is calling your name.πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ™Œ

Once Upon a Cruise 🚒

Once upon a cruise, I had the time of my life πŸ˜ƒ! There was a lot of singing and most certainly a lot of dancing like the video captured here:

Doesn’t this look like fun? 😜 The video gives you some idea of the overall atmosphere on this Carnival – Western Caribbean cruise. The place where all of this fun takes place is called the Lido Deck. That is where dance parties, exercising and other entertaining group activities take place. This place can accommodate the largest number of guests at the same time.

If you have seen other blog posts of mine, you have undoubtedly seen a few concerts from the cruise ships. The concerts happen on the Lido Deck. As you might imagine, there are extra protocols being followed in the pandemic world that we live in now, but rest assured, this type of entertainment continues on, albeit in a limited capacity.

Once you are comfortable with taking a cruise, I encourage you to do so. I am sure that the industry would love to have new and experienced cruisers, as their industry has lost billions of dollars as a result of the pandemic.

NASA Moon Views – Wow🀩

Space – the most definite final frontier! Going to the moon and outer space is something that will be more of a reality for outer space seekers as time goes on. Until then, take a look at this visit to the moon gallery at NASA:

This was such a cool experience that I thoroughly loved it πŸ₯°. As I indicated in my previous post, if you have never visited NASA, do yourself a favor and take a visit. There is just a natural fascination with space. The unknown provides so much mystery and excitement at the same time.

Almost the feeling (but to a greater degree) that you get when you have never been to a place but you have always thought it would be cool to go. We have often wondered if there is intelligent life out there also. Due to this natural curiosity, we explore and explore some more.

Space X and Blue Origin are making space dreams come true. They are boldly going out in space during a time in which there is so much curiosity and demand to go. Before these companies, it was just NASA the original pioneers in space explorationπŸ˜€

Talking to the Moon🌝!

How I love to visit NASA!πŸ˜ƒSuch a great place to go and explore. Maybe it is just my fascination with all things space. I would love to be able to visit space one of these days. Looks like that is starting to happen these days, with different SpaceX missions. In the meantime, I took a NASA visit to the moon and it is captured here:

I guess my first love for all things space started with the movie E.T. and with the Star Wars movies. Both really peaked my interest in space, in addition to the different space launch missions from NASA. Visiting Cape Canaveral as a kid really put my love for space over the top!πŸ˜ƒ

The above video was taken at the NASA Johnson Space Center located in Houston, Texas. If you have ever heard of the saying, “Houston, we have a problem” – the person that said it, said it at the Johnson Space Center. Fun factπŸ˜ƒ!

This moon exhibit was located in an area that is called the Astronaut Gallery. There you can take cool pictures and videos of the moon, in addition to touring a space shuttle. There are so many other activities that make for a long and enjoyable day. I definitely recommend visiting this wonderful place especially if you are a lover of all things space l, like I am!

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:

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:

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.

Never Forget – 9/11 Tribute

Always important to remember those times that changed you forever. 9/11 is one of those days. I just posted a video commemorating the 20 year anniversary on YouTube:

Hope that you enjoyed the video as much as I enjoyed making it. I will always remember when and where I was when these tragic events happened. It is truly hard to believe that it has been 20 years. We have all changed and our world has not been the same since that fateful day.

I am reminded of the unity that was felt during those times. I am so hopeful that we all return back to those times and see one another as fellow Americans first, rather than by political party, vaccinated/unvaccinate etc. Hopefully better days ahead – we will never forget 😒

Astronaut in the Ocean – Kailua Bay Vibes

Ocean life is definitely the life. If I can be anywhere near the ocean, I am definitely at peace.πŸ˜€ Here is one of the the best ocean views that I have seen:

In this video, I was just observing and enjoying all of the natural beauty before my eyes. Thankfully, I was able to soak in all of the views that I saw here at Kailua Bay. What a beautiful day it was to be outside. Down in this area of Downtown Kona, Hawaii, this bay is on one side of the street and shops and restaurants are in the other side. Can it really get any better than this? πŸ˜ƒ

To be able to fully appreciate this area, you must go visit for yourselves. Pictures and videos can only give it so much justice, personal experience is just so much better.

I hope that you all enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed recording it! Have a wonderful day!

Chasing Waterfalls in Hilo HawaiiπŸπŸ–πŸ˜ŽπŸπŸ

Take a look at the beautiful Akaka Falls in Hilo, Hawaii πŸ‘‰

If you have never seen an up close version of a waterfall, feel free to check this video out! It is such an amazing wonder. I totally enjoyed the experience of visiting Akaka State Park in Hilo, Hawaii. One of the best sights that I have ever witnessed.

Hope that you enjoy the video. Feel free to leave a comment if you do – thank you! πŸ˜ƒ
