All aboard to the Na Pali CoastπŸ›³πŸŒΊπŸ˜Ž!

If you have never been to the Na Pali Coast, you are in for a treat πŸ˜ƒ! After cruising for some time, this was one of the best views that I have ever seen. If you have looked at other posts that I have included in my blog, you will be amazed at those views, in addition to this one:. youtube.com/shorts/Z6MajNM4-Ys

Just imagine seeing this view, up close and personal. It was truly breathtaking, to say the least😊. As I have shared before on this blog, if you are interested in this cruise 🚒, feel free to book this cruise through Trip Advisor. It is called the “Na Pali Coast Sunset Cruise”. I highly recommend booking this cruise, should your travel plans take you to Kauai, Hawaii.

The cruise is taken onboard a catamaran, which happened to be the first time that I was onboard one. I have seen many on television but this expedition was my first experience. Having had most of my experience onboard Carnival Cruises, I was a little hesitant regarding this cruise – since it was a much smaller ship.

Turns out, my fears were totally unfounded πŸ˜‚! It was such a smooth ride and I enjoyed the whole experience. Hope that you will make your plans to book the Na Pali Sunset Cruise in the foreseeable future!

Jump In – Water Feels Great πŸ’¦ 😊!

Kalahari Hotels and Resorts are an absolute dream 🀩! If you have followed my blog, you already know how beautiful it is. There is something to do for the whole family and it is a lot cheaper than Universal Studios and Disney 😊. Check out this ginormous wading pool: youtube.com/shorts/fcacCAxz83k

In posting this video, I can see myself right here wading in that water πŸ’¦. Hopefully you can see yourself there also. Cannot overstate how much I enjoyed my experience there at the park. The indoor water park is worth the price of admission alone!😎

The video above highlights just one of the indoor attractions that Kalahari has there. In recent years, Kalahari Hotels and Resorts have popped up in various parts of the USA. If I am not mistaken, there is at least a couple that are located elsewhere in the world.

The Kalahari experience that I have captured is from the fairly new water park in Round Rock, Texas. Not only was the water park top notch but so was the beautiful hotel 🏨. I would definitely encourage anyone, as you are making plans for Spring Break or even Summer travel, to check out Kalahari. You will be so glad that you did πŸ˜ƒ!

Costa Rica Vibes πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸ–πŸ

Costa Rica is absolutely the island to visit πŸ˜ƒ! The views are exceptional and will literally take your breath away. If you have never been to Costa Rica, consider this travel destination on your list. Here is just a preview of the beautiful sights that you will see on this magnificent island: youtube.com/shorts/Hw2gOhl9GoY

Hope that you enjoyed the beautiful views. Island vibes have a way of taking you away from the routine and mundaneness of everyday life. That is why the mantra: Work. Vacation. Repeat. πŸ” should be practiced as much as possible to ensure balance in the crazy world in which we live in.

Costa Rica is one of those places that once you visit, you will want to visit again. So much to see and to do and so very little time to do these things. If you enjoy beaches, beautiful scenery, cliffs, hiking etc. you will definitely enjoy this beautiful paradise.

The vacation is reasonably priced especially considering Hawaii, Bali, Bahamas and other more pricier islands. As always, booking ahead 2-3 months or more will make a material difference!

Check back early and often on this blog for more travel adventures! Have a great dayπŸ˜€.

After Thanksgiving FeelingπŸ˜ŠπŸ™Œ

Hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a great weekend as well! πŸ˜€πŸ™Œ Not sure if you can relate to this video or not but I sure can πŸ˜‚. Take a look: youtube.com/shorts/92KrMvafck8

Can you relate to this after Thanksgiving feeling? I sure can. Nothing else like the effects of a very appetizing Thanksgiving meal πŸ₯˜ 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 😎. He is clearly relaxing and enjoying the day. Not sure how much he ate that day but maybe πŸ€” it was an equivalent of a Thanksgiving dinner πŸ˜‚!

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

Incredible Kalahari ViewsπŸ˜ƒ!

The view from here is just incredible: youtube.com/shorts/9haZjgfDI_Y

Looking out from my balcony window provided some much needed relaxation to my otherwise stressful week. We get away to relax and cast off the cares of the world. Kalahari, from this balcony view, and from all of the indoor water park rides, provided a welcomed respite.πŸ˜†

If you have followed this blog, you have seen a myriad of various places that I have discovered from my travels across the world. This particular place is found right here in the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, in small town Texas, by the name of Round Rock. I think that the only reason that I have heard of it, is that I live here in the state. πŸ˜‚ Otherwise, I might not have visited the city at all.

There are Kalahari Resorts in other states. so I encourage you to visit should your travel plans allow it. This was my first time visiting the resort but certainly won’t be my last. I enjoyed every last bit of the time that I had there. It is a fairly new resort, having opened in November 2020, but by the looks of the crowd when I visited, the secret was out. It was packed – to my surprise!

Hope that you enjoy the video above. If you like the content, I encourage you to follow my blog to see more of the same!

Paradise Found: Beach πŸ– vibes from Hawaii

Paradise vibes are in full effect! Check it out here: youtube.com/watch

My favorite paths in life have always led to the beach. There is nothing on this earth 🌍 like it! The sun above and the sand beneath gives you so much peace within. Being there only increases your desire to return.

That is certainly the case for this beautiful black sand beach located on the Big Island of Hawaii. If you have seen my previous posts on the beautiful Punalu’u Beach πŸ–, you know exactly what I am talking about. The view is an awesome mixture of fun and sun that you just cannot afford to miss. I stood amazed at the vivid colors on display. You will perhaps see no other thing like it on God’s green earth.

If you have a chance to visit this summer, you will see that it is indeed beautiful 🀩. Until that travel time, feel free to take a look at the video above and my previous posts.

Such an incredible waterfall- Akaka Falls 😻😎πŸ”₯❀️!

Akaka Falls is truly a natural wonder😎! Here is the link: youtube.com/shorts/uylSTMu2x2E

This waterfall is located in Hilo, Hawaii and it is so beautiful 😻! Cannot believe that I got to stand that close to the waterfall. It is truly incredible. No other experience could possibly come close to this great feeling. This is one of those memories that is permanently burned into your brain forever πŸ˜‚! Certainly memories you can share with your grandchildren.

If waterfalls are your thing, consider the Big Island of Hawaii for your next island adventure. You only live once, and if you do it right, once is enough πŸ˜‚

Summer Vibes Loading πŸ˜»πŸ˜ŽπŸ–πŸŽ‰

Summer vibes are right around the corner. Just posted a video to get you in the summer mood: youtube.com/shorts/S1MVC9X-HME

This is a video from the Kailua Bay located in Downtown Kona, Hawaii. These excellent vibes provided a much needed refresher from the Hawaiian 🌺 sun. As summer gets closer (officially a little less than one week away), beaches like these will undoubtedly be crowded.

It is certainly a great time to remind everyone about the need to apply sunscreen in the hot weather. So needed on those beach days where you are spending enormous amounts of time out in the sun.

My best paths in life have always led to the beach πŸ– so I look forward to more beach adventures, as the countdown to summer has officially begun.

Dancing into Friday like this πŸ˜ŽπŸ’ƒπŸ•ΊπŸΎ!

TGIF Vibes are on full display here in the new video just uploaded to my channel: youtube.com/shorts/OsgEMBO2NsU

There are some weeks that you are particularly glad that you made it to the end of. This is one of those weeks for me. For me it started with a busy last weekend that spilled over to an even busier week. Well, we made it here and I am certainly looking forward to re-energizing over the weekend.

With that in mind, I can’t stop the feeling that the above video gives. I was aboard Carnival Cruise line en-route to the Western Caribbean when this dance party took place. I cannot remember if it was on a Friday or not but it is needed every day of the week and twice on Sunday πŸ˜‚.

In the days in which we live in, it is hard to find a whole lot to celebrate πŸŽ‰ as every time on the news, there is depressing news after depressing news. I hope that this provides a glimpse of better times behind and better days ahead! Have a great day.πŸ˜ƒ

Aloha Beach Vibes from the Fairmont Orchid πŸ˜ŽπŸŒ΄πŸ–πŸ™Œ

Check out the new video posted on my channel here πŸ‘‰youtube.com/shorts/GM5QNLhDkMQ

I had an awesome time visiting Kona Hawaii and having the pleasure of staying at this gorgeous resortπŸ˜ƒ! This hotel is top notch and it will exceed any expectations that you might have.

In the video, you will get a glimpse of the exceptionally manicured landscape and the beautiful beach vibes. I wish I could have stayed longer there, it was an absolute joy. Truly one of the best part of waking up is enjoying all that the Fairmont has to offer.

As you can see from the video, I was there oa a very windy day. This trip provided a welcomed escape from a year worth of cancelled trips and despair. If you have an opportunity, check out this magnificent destination. You will definitely not regret it πŸ˜„
