Los Angeles California was amazing !!!!! Iโ€™ll go into detail about this trip and give you some exciting places to go . STAY TUNED โœŠ๐Ÿพ

Weekend trip to Los Angeles, California !!!!! โ˜€๏ธ ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ”

The Hollywood Sign is an American landmark and cultural icon overlooking Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.

Whatโ€™s up everybody โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿพ !!!! I hope everybody is doing well and remaining safe out there as we continue to navigate through this awful pandemic. Hopefully conditions continue to improve and we can get back to some sort of normalcy . With that being said , LOS ANGELES , CALIFORNIA was next up on my travel list ๐Ÿ“ and it did not disappoint. This was my second time visiting the โ€œCity of Angelsโ€ but this time I really had the opportunity to enjoy myself.

Attractions and Things to do

There are so many things to do in Los Angeles that you need more than a week to probably get around to them all . You have DisneyLand which is probably one of the more popular affections but I skipped that one since Iโ€™m going to Disney World next month. If youโ€™re a sports guy like myself, you can catch a Dodgers or an Angels baseball game . LA is also home for the Lakers and the Clippers . Both teams play at the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles . I spent a lot of time checking out the art through the city , mainly murals. I was interested to see the tributes to our fallen brother Kobe Bryant and Nipsey Hussle . Both of these gentlemen played such a big part in the culture of this fine city that I had to pay my respects . Kobe Bryant will go down as one of the NBAโ€™s greatest players of all time and one of its brightest stars . I though that it was ironic that I was there to admire paintings of him during the same weekend that he was enshrined into the basketball Hall of Fame !!! Long Live Mamba ๐Ÿ

R.I.P. Kobe and GiGi

Nipsey Hussle ๐Ÿ The Marathon Continues

For those of you who may not know who Nipsey was , he was the true definition of a hustler. Personally , what I admired most about him was his will and desire to invest in the same streets that he grew up in . Ermias Asghedom was born in raised in Los Angeles where he sold incense on the street corner to earn some money. His work ethic is what would propel him to be a Grammy award winning rap artist and a beloved figure in the community.

This mural is off of slauson and Crenshaw next to where Nipsey she opened a clothing store !

Well thatโ€™s all for now guys …. I will leave more pictures below of some of the places we visited in L.A. As always live , love , laugh and TRAVEL โœŒ๐Ÿฝ๐ŸโœŠ๐Ÿพ

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Christmas in Cancun ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŒฒ๐Ÿ

The view from the resort was pretty cool .

Whatโ€™s up everybody !!!!! Itโ€™s been a while since Iโ€™ve done a post but Iโ€™m back today with some more memories from one of my favorite destinations … Cancun, Mexico ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ. While me and my beautiful girlfriend Tia do exchange gifts we much rather spend our money on a trip , so thatโ€™s what we do each year for Christmas. Covid-19 limited our options of course but Cancun is always a reliable and fun place to visit whenever we travel . So hereโ€™s a review of our week there . Enjoy and appreciate you all ๐Ÿ–คโค๏ธ

Our view from the balcony of our room @ the Ocean Spa Hotel

We kind of waited til the last minute to plan for this trip so most of the hotels were booked and still being booked ๐Ÿ’จ . So we decided to book at the Ocean Spa Hotel . They offered an all- inclusive package that was pretty reasonable . The food was pretty good and the facilities were pretty darn good as well . Now the drinks ๐Ÿน were a different story . Cheap liquor ๐Ÿธ is never a good thing , however babe is a secretly an amazing bartender lol . She sent me to get some vodka and drinks were no longer an issue !!!!! So grab your own bottles and you should be good ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

After a flight โœˆ๏ธ Iโ€™m always tired and ready to relax . So we decided to to find a hookah bar nearby and chill there . They had this hookah tobacco called Egyptian nights …. by far the strongest Iโ€™ve ever had. If you see that flavor …. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ RUN !!!!! I wish I could remember the name of the hookah bar but, I donโ€™t . This is why I have got to do more videos

Wifey was probably laughing ๐Ÿ˜‚ at me !!!! I was choking and coughing most of the night ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ’จ
Second time on a jet ski and had a blast !!!

Our second day in Cancun we had a ball ! Our hotel had a package that included zip-lining , jet skis , riding atvโ€™s , and swimming in a cenote ! I enjoyed every moment of it , and it didnโ€™t cost an arm and a leg either. Cancun was lit ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

We had so much fun at the cenote ! You know I provided the entertainment for everybody ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

We were riding the atvs through the slums ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Be safe and remember to live , laugh , love and travel ๐Ÿงณ โœˆ๏ธ โœŒ๐Ÿพ.

Something Different ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช

So I havenโ€™t been able to travel and I just accepted a new position at my job so Iโ€™m pretty busy these days . With that being said new content is hard to come by for the time being. So Iโ€™m going to do a spotlight on the special woman in my life . The woman who makes me smile. Sheโ€™s my travel buddy, soulmate and hopefully soon to be my wife ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ Ms. Tia Williams (applause ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ)

When I tell yโ€™all I have been blessed to travel the world with my best friend thatโ€™s exactly what it means. We have travels to 6 of the 7 continents together and I wouldnโ€™t trade it for the world . We both love to travel , both have pretty decent careers and we are deeply in love . Honestly she was the person who inspired my blog and my dope travel jacket . Thatโ€™s enough of the mushy love ๐Ÿ’• so Iโ€™ll just leave some of my fav pics of us together on our wonderful journey ! Until next time live, laugh, love, and travel โœŒ๐ŸพโœŒ๐Ÿพ
