Aloha Vibes for the Weekend 😎🌸🏝!

Nothing like beautiful vibes and views for the weekend!😎 No doubt, the premier way to spend a weekend is going to a place that you have never been or going to a familiar place that you have been before. One of the best trips that I have taken was visiting the island of Kauai. If you peruse the articles of my blog, you will definitely see countless videos about Hawaii amongst other beautiful locations and countries. Here is a great video of one of the absolute best places that you can visit while you are visiting the island of Kauai: youtube.com/shorts/ZoTMr10urZs

This magnificent location was captured on the beautiful property where the Smith’s Luau was held. It was an absolute dream place to visit, as you can tell from the video. This view is the epitome of why people take vacations. Certainly a perfect way to spend a weekend or any other day during the week.

This property consists of acres and acres of pure fun 🀩! Almost wish that I could have just stayed at a hotel there to be able to explore that grounds a lot more. The place even has an amphitheater and a trolley 🚎 πŸ˜‚. Gives you an idea of just how vast this property is! Whenever you visit Kauai, make this place a must visit! πŸ˜ƒ

Hawaii Pool Vibes😎🏝🌸🏝!

I absolutely love pools and what could be better than pool vibes in Hawaii!😎This resort was just what the doctor ordered. This resort is called the Sheraton Coconut Beach Resort in Kauai. Love the great vibrations that I was feeling here: I have attached a short video to provide an idea of the beautiful vibes that this hotel had ti offer: youtube.com/shorts/CzPVeJFOaCU

Who would not want to stay here? It is absolutely beautiful and you can tell, from the video, that folks were having an extremely great time!😎 Pool and Beach views at this hotel were all just next level. When I travel, it is always my goal to boldly go, where I have not gone before – just like Star Trek!

If you are thinking of visiting Kauai in the near future, this is most certainly your place to stay. Surrounding areas have all of the shops and restaurants that you would want to see, in addition to experiencing a lot of the tourist locations and learning about the Hawaiian 🌺 culture.

From the video, you can see that this place is an absolute dream 😴. The amenities are top notch and the landscape is meticulously manicured in and around the hotel. You will definitely be glad that you visited this gorgeous hotel. Make sure to check the ratings to make sure that it meets your expectations!

Evening in Na Pali😎🏝🌞!

What a wonderful evening in Na Pali πŸ˜ƒ! Absolutely the best sail expedition that I have ever been on. Take a look at this magnificent view: youtube.com/shorts/Q65gP5kpoys

It is so incredibly beautiful 🀩- almost looks like a clip from a movie πŸŽ₯. Must admit that I was pretty excited to try out the cinematic photography mode on my iPhone 13πŸ˜ƒ! This video adequately captures the magnificent views that I experienced while on this beautiful sunset cruise 🚒.

Absolutely jaw dropping views from onboard this beautiful catamaran! Must admit that this is the first time that I have actually had a catamaran experience. It was incredible and I would certainly sail on another one again. I have cruised aboard humongous cruise liners many times but never a catamaranπŸ˜ƒ!

The best views by far are on the front of the catamaranπŸ˜ƒ. It can also, unfortunately, be the wettest part of the ship also! Make sure to take caution ⚠️ as the boat is moving faster because you will most certainly get wet πŸ˜‚.

Enjoy the video and check back for more travel adventures of the exciting kind here on this blogπŸ˜ƒπŸ!

Sailing on the Na Pali CoastπŸ˜Žβ›΅οΈπŸβ˜€οΈ!

Until visiting Kauai this month, I had never been on a subset catamaran tour. Full disclosure, I had never been on a catamaran ever πŸ˜‚! I have seen rich celebrities, on tv, aboard these but have never had the experience. If you ever sail on one of these boats, the best views are in the front. You can see why, by viewing this video: youtube.com/shorts/cFN1IrzTijQ

Spectacular views indeed and I am thankful for the experience! Part of traveling for me, is trying something new. That being said, I am not afraid to open myself up to brand new experiences. I was greatly rewarded for my courage because the Na Pali Sunset Cruise in Kauai was just what the doctor ordered.πŸ˜ƒ

It was by far the best cruise that I have taken to date. If you have followed this blog, you know how much of a cruiser I am. I could possibly work for the cruise industry at this point in time πŸ˜‚. I truly love being on the water πŸ’¦ as often as possible. In fact, most of the excursions, on trips that I have taken, involved water in some way, shape or form.

This particular excursion, as the name implies, is 6 hour in duration and one of the only ways to view the Na Pali Coast. On land, it would take forever, by air, it would be expensive etc. Seeing the dolphins and whales are worth the price of the tour alone! The bonus views are the mountains that looks like you’re in Jurassic Park and the beautiful water πŸ’¦.

Hope that you enjoy the video and will make your plans to go to Kauai and take this tour! You will thank me later πŸ˜ƒπŸ™Œ

Waimea Canyon Views-OMG🀩!

If you have never been to Waimea Canyon, run, not walk to visit πŸ˜‚! It is an incredible place and I got a chance to visit on last week. Here is a view from the lookout point, hope that you enjoy this as much as I did capturing it:youtube.com/shorts/96hD68Zc08I

I have never been to the Grand Canyon but I have heard that it is a lot like this view but less colorful πŸ˜ƒ. This beautiful canyon is located on the beautiful island 🏝 of Kauai, Hawaii in the city of Waimea. The Waimea Canyon State Park has a lookout point and trails for hiking πŸ₯Ύ.

I don’t mind telling you that I have never seen views such as these in any of my previous travels before. I was completely blown away by the spectacular colors and the vastness of the canyon. Visiting Kauai, as I mentioned before in a previous post, was otherworldly, almost as if you were on a different planet altogether.

In order to get to the lookout point on the top of Waimea Canyon, you have to drive about an hour from the base of the canyon to reach the top. The elevation of the canyon is 3,400 feet and you totally feel it as you are going up the canyon and hiking on the trails.

Hope that you enjoy the video above and that you will follow this blog to see more travel adventures πŸ˜€!

Viva Los Cabos😎🌴πŸ₯‚!!

Los Cabos is an absolute dream! If you have never been to Los Cabos – put it on your bucket listπŸ˜ƒ. Here is a great video of the beautiful hotel that I had the pleasure of staying in:. youtube.com/shorts/FTjAcFrpBhM

The beautiful hotel seen in this video is the Hilton Los Cabos Hotel and ResortπŸ˜ƒ. One of the best hotels in Los Cabos. It was an absolute dream – you most definitely would enjoy the experience. For me, it starts with the largest hotel room that I have ever stayed in. Then, it is all about the amazing amenities and the ocean front views that will absolutely capture your heart ❀️.

If you have followed this blog for some time, I have highlighted many aspects of Mexico particularly Los Cabos! If you have not seen the previous posts, I encourage you to take a look. Most folks have heard of Cabo San Lucas, which is nearby. I actually went sailing on the Sea of Cortez in Cabo San Lucas.

The Hilton Los Cabos has one of the only swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, which also is an absolute plus. The waters in Los Cabos tend to be rough and choppy at times. You will enjoy countless hours hanging out at the beach πŸ–.

Hope that you will consider Los Cabos/Cabo San Lucas in the future. With Spring Break approaching, this would be an excellent location to visitπŸ˜ƒ!

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!

The view is incredible 😳😻❀️❀️!

No matter where I travel in the world, I love and appreciate nature viewsπŸ˜ƒ! Thankfully, as a traveler, I experience nature on a regular basis. This is an incredible view that I could not help but share: youtube.com/shorts/g8PnBjJMvs0

Everything captured in these views are absolutely incredible. The weather was just perfect and adds to the magnificence of this shot. You almost want to dive into the water to cool off πŸ˜‚.

This video is courtesy of the state of Texas which has many beautiful places to visit, especially if you are an avid outdoorsman. Lots of nature trails and beautiful landscapes to hike. Nature Photography abounds in this state. Texas also has its share of State Parks to visit especially with Spring Break coming up in many states.

I encourage you all to visit the beautiful state of Texas. Along with its wonderful nature and parks, Texas also has beautiful Gulf Coast beaches!πŸ˜ƒ They are located in South Padre Island, Corpus Christie, Galveston etc. As you are making your vacation plans for 2022, please consider taking a vacation deep in the heart ❀️ of Texas!

Just Like That – Atlantis Vibes😎🏝😎🏝!

Sometimes in life, making decisions require a leap of faith. I totally had to take a leap of faith while visiting Atlantis! If you have not been there before, there is a 60 foot water slide called the Leap of Faith – which requires courage and faith to experience it πŸ˜‚. Here is a quick video that shows my experience on the Leap of Faith: youtube.com/shorts/xJRUsR5-L5U

In an effort of full transparency, I look back at the photos captured and I am still amazed that I took this experience head on πŸ˜‚. I remember it being such a thrill ride and so exciting at the same time. Not sure that I have had an experience in my life that comes close to the excitement that I felt on this ride. I would highly recommend taking on this experience, if you have an opportunity to visit some time in the future.

In addition to the Leap of Faith Water Slide, there are so many other water slides and pools that you can experience. It should be noted that not all of the slides are the 60 foot variety but there are smaller slides there. If lazy rivers are appealing, there are a number of those that are located in Atlantis.

Atlantis is very family friendly, there is truly something to do for the whole family. You will definitely enjoy your time there! πŸ˜ƒ

Belize Sights and Sounds 😎😎😻😻

Belize is such a beautiful place to visitπŸ˜ƒBy far, it is one of the best places that I have visited. Always a great feeling when you can get long time bucket list items checked off your list. Here is just a compilation of the sights and sounds of Belize: youtube.com/shorts/GNXW02RgTpg

Hopefully you enjoyed the video!πŸ˜ƒBelize was one of the stops while cruising along the Western Caribbean! Impressive trip all around especially the speed boat tour of the Belize River. If you ever go, please do the Belize River tour – you will be so glad you did!

I must admit, the Belize River tour isn’t always fast moving. In Belize πŸ‡§πŸ‡Ώ, there are spots along the river where you cannot go fast. While sailing along the river, you will see manatees, alligators 🐊, snakes 🐍 etc.

In addition to the tour, you can also visit the Belize Zoo, where you will see a lot of awesome animals. Thankfully this is part of the overall tour – which really adds to the value that this tour has!
