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˜‚

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

Traveling inside the states during COVID-19 part 4 : Houston ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿพ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿพ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿพ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ›ฉ๐Ÿ›ซโœˆ๏ธ

As you all know we are still in the middle of a worldwide pandemic and it doesnโ€™t seem to be slowing down anytime ๐Ÿ”œ. With that being said we are still playing it safe for now and traveling inside the U.S. until this virus ๐Ÿฆ  slows down.


Houston, Texas sunset ๐ŸŒ‡

What does H-town have to offer ??

Houston has some of the best food Iโ€™ve had in a longtime. I knew down south was good eating but Houston really is the best. If youโ€™re a breakfast guy like myself , I highly recommend the Breakfast Klub . I tried the chicken and waffles and it was def 5-stars๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ. Later in the week we made it to the Turkey Leg Hut. We waited in line for close to what had to be 2 hours . Once I bit in to that turkey leg I knew immediately the wait was well worth it !! I ordered the Alfredo shrimp stuffed turkey leg. This turkey leg was complete jumbo grilled shrimp ๐Ÿค , Cajun Alfredo sauce, on top of a bed of rice ! Absolutely amazing , and you can get numerous drink to wash it all down . I would recommend the Don Julio 1942 frozen tequilas . ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

The Turkey leg hut is absolutely amazing !! This is a must visit if youโ€™re in the city.

What should I do when I visit Houston ?!?!

One thing that I highly recommend is making the short drive (less than a hour) over to Galveston, Texas and enjoy the beach. You can visit the Galveston Island Pleasure Pier or you can catch some waves like I did . The water was a bit rough due to the hurricane that was moving through the water at the time . That only made it more exciting for me ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช

If you like to shop then the Galleria Mall is the sport for you ! Every store you can possibly think of is there. All of the high end stores like Gucci, Prada, and Burberry. This cool mall even has a skating rink right in the middle of the mall !!!

Houston Night life is Amazing !!!

We visited clubs , bars , and Halo . Halo was definitely a good time Iโ€™d youโ€™re into strip clubs with beautiful women . But Iโ€™m more of a laid back and chill kind of guy and thatโ€™s why prospect park was my favorite spot. They have frozen drinks and some pretty good food. Combine that with a mature crowd , hookah, and Djs playing the best music out you are going to have a good time !!! Ghost and Spire were decent clubs but next time Iโ€™m going to the Address, I hear thatโ€™s the spot to be . Overall Houston is pretty dope. i love the strong black culture in the city and the black owned businesses. We need more vibrant and happening cityโ€™s for our culture like H-town . Iโ€™ll leave more pics s videos highlighting the trip below for you guys. Until next time live, laugh, love, and travel !!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
