My dream destination entry week 5
It is time for ANOTHER DREEM VACATION and this time @dreemsteem decided it was time to reward the special people in our lives who deserve to be pampered for the positivity they bought into our lives that made us into the people we are today 😊
When I first saw the requirements for this week's entry it bought a smile to my face even if it also made me emotional.
In the course of my life, I have met different people along the way that have influenced me one way or another, be It in the positive 😁 or sometimes negative 😔 but my biggest POSITIVE influence in life has been those left by my late parents which is why I choose to take both of them on this dreem journey.
I said it in one of my earlier posts that my father was the wisest man I had ever met and that is a fact 💯 he was a man I always believed came before his time and I will explain why.
Back then girl child education in this part of the world wasn't very popular but my father made sure ALL his children got equal education.
And he would always communicate to us at home in the English language much to the annoyance of a lot of folks back then who believed it was better to start a child speech with their local language but my father never accepted that idea because he would say 'one day his children will meet and mix up with people from different places so they should be able to express themselves in English 😊 loads of other instances I could sight here but let's just summarize it by saying my father had the foresight to plan for his children future.
My mother on the other hand was the most gentle and kindest soul you could ever meet.
A good mother who kept giving and giving for her family and never seemed exhausted doing it because she always had that ready smile on her face.
In their ways both my parents didn't just give me life but shaped me into the lady I am today and not to sound conceited but they did do a great job of it 😁😁😁 which is the reason, I arranged this dream trip for them smh if only.....
So the very first stop on this dream vacation was HOLLYWOOD
On arrival at the airport after check-in, mom and dad are picked up by and taken directly to the Prospect Hollywood Hotel where I have booked the Premier Studio Suite for their two-night stay in Tinseltown.
First, they visited the universal studios on a guarded tour after which they settled down to enjoy dream works theatre original featuring kung fu panda 🐼
The next day after breakfast they decided to take a walk through the streets of Hollywood and even caught glimpse of some A-list stars including "The Hollywood Hulk Hogan" who was one of Dad's favorite all-time superstars 😍 I remember how he would say one day he would meet Hulk Hogan in person and shake his hands 😌.
The next stop was New York where #dreemport had secured two ringside seats to the world #2 Michael hunter vs Jerry Forrest heavyweight match at the Trillerverz IV card at the Hammerstein ballroom New York.
While dad had an amazing time at the match cheering and shouting with the rest of the crowd my beautiful mom wasn't too comfortable with the loud noises and what she called senseless violence of the sport 😁😁😁 guess we know who was happier when the fight ended.
The next flight took off and arrived in 🇯🇵 and onward to Kyoto which is Japan's capital city as well as the home of the Imperial family.
For this leg of the trip, I had called ahead and booked the royal chambers at the Yuzuya Ryokan Inn
Dad enjoyed visiting the temples the most while my mom was amazed by all the beauty everywhere she looked 😊
From Japan their next flight arrived at the mali airport in the Maldives, it was time to heed on to the next location which was Meerufenfushi north male Atoll of Maldives.
Clear blue waters of the Maldives
From there they took a 50minutes speedboat ride to the beautiful meeru island resort.
I was told after they checked in on the first day they decided to spend the day enjoying the view of the clear water and walked hand in hand
on the sandy beaches while snacking on delicacies and sampling some expensive red wine 😉
Romantic night view of meeru island 😍
The next day after breakfast they both went on a cruise and letter they to relax more they decided to get a rejuvenating body wellness spa treatment before dinner.
This trip wasn't as easy to narrate so let's just say after breakfast the next morning they both returned home and rested 😕

This is nice, I love how the trip wasn't centered around one place but y'all traveled across, I hope you would get to actually do this in real life.
Meanwhile, @dreemport brought me here.

Yes they are, although it would have been best if it were a trip taken whole they ere alive but still cool getting a chance to do it on dreemworld.thanks for reading .
Yes of course that makes sense but it was like a wonderful tribute to them I think
Yes it is a wonderful tribute to both of them which is something I am happy about.
This is really beautiful and made me emotional as well. I love the story of how your dad was when he was alive, a wise man he was indeed.
That trip is amazing, I will only wish it comes true
Yes, my father indeed was a wise man 😇 and every single day I thank God for blessing me with him.
Well, the trip can't come true because they are both late now but at least I got to send them on a dream one.

Nice place! Might be adding this to my bucket list
Thank you, glad you like the destinations I choose.
You are so funny!!!!! LOLOLOL
the trip was FABULOUS - and you narrated it so well!!! I don't know why you thought it was difficult - remember, y ou only had to give us a peek - and you did that!
But what really impressed me was how you spoke about your father and mother.
I am just sitting here - thinking of how your father really did plan for your success - and I have to tell you - he did a GREAT JOB!
I remember listening to your cooking videos - and the way you spoke and handled yourself - it was SO lovely to listen to. I've heard some people really struggle with English, but you have a very natural flow to the language - very comfortable. And I'm sure that had all to do with your father and his foresight! Remarkablel man!
And also - your voice is so soft and soothing - and I'm sure you get that from your mother from her description
I want to tell you Princess, I've really enjoyed getting to meet you more through your posts, and I love you more each time! Your parents would be very proud. I am too! :)
Great job on your post!!! I will announce the winners from the results tonight! Keep watch! :)
Thank you dear 🤗🤗 I love you too for always been such a spark of light on hive.
I was just hard to plan a frictional vacation for two of the most important people in my life when I wish they had lived longer so in time I could at least have done something for them, was a bit young when they both passed
In all honesty, whatever I am today and end up been tomorrow will be thanks to my father's foresight 😊 thank you so much for your compliments 🙏
that's what you don't realize.
you have done EVERYTHING for them.
What do you think parents want more than anything? To know that their children are achieving all that they have fought to give them.
and you are. and they are so proud of you Princess.
So you writing this post IS what they wanted. :) it's not about the trip. It's about honoring them. and you did!!!!
They read it with all of us - and they are probably doing this and more in heaven!
Thank you for this! Upvotes given and announcement made - check out the winners! 😍
Wow! So many beautiful places on the list
