Maui Vacation 2017 Doing It Right on a Budget

Hello my friends,

You either stumbled upon this post during a Google search or you are one of our faithful followers on our list. You can subscribe at anytime in one of the boxes on this page or far down on the page.

So here’s my Maui story. Can you believe I, Cesar Ramirez, finally turned the big 4 0. Yeah, forty years old and I can’t even tell you that I feel any different, but I can tell you that I have yet many goals to accomplish. It all started in early summer of June 2017. I was planning a 40th birthday party in a local winery that I formally DJ at called The Temecula Coach House for my family and friends. I thought it’d be nice to get family and friends over to celebrate a pretty huge year. It may even be called over the hump for some. Then I realized that I may not spend the quality of time I wish to with my 3 sons and wife…

So during a snapchat session, I was watching a couple in June 2017 that were posting sunset videos of Maui, Hawaii. And I was like, wow, that would be awesome. I asked the snapchatter, hey when is a good time to start planning a vacation like this? He said 5 to 6 months ahead of time. And at that moment I realized, that’s it!!! December 8th is my 40th and 6 months from now I will be prepared to pay this trip off :-). I shopped around different sites and came across package deals from Costco, Travel sites and so on and I found that it would be good to break down my reasoning for not picking an all-in-one package.

#1 – Hotel – AirBNB – Why? Because I have a family of 5 and the 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment we got is amazingly big compare to hotel space. It has a full size fridge and we stored food we cooked with for the week. Saving big money on not eating out. – 7 Days costs us just around $1100 for stay and about $400 in groceries.
#2 – Car to get around – Since I have a lot of points with Avis, I decided to take advantage of this and I got to save about $350 renting a van for a family of 5. You may not need such a big space.
#3 – Flights – I went through AAA since I have a membership and the flights cost us just below $450 each. Total = $2250

Costco Price= $5500   | Me shopping around price= $3700.
#4 – Paid Events to do with the kids and wifey – broken down below (I avoided Time share activities since I value my time.) There we paid a small amount more to dictate our vacation our way.

We left Saturday morning at 6am from San Diego and had a 1 hour layover in Los Angeles (LAX). We arrived in Maui 5 hours later. Remember Hawaii Time goes back 2 hours. So set your clock back if you’re coming from California 2 hours or more if you’re coming from elsewhere.

Sunday Day: We are devout practicing Catholics so we attended early morning Mass at Christ The King Catholic Church.

The first event we did after our car rental and checking into our hotel was the Maui Aquarium. Since you’re on an Island, I recommend educating yourself on the sea life around you. They have a 15% discount if you buy your tickets online. We ended up buying and booking there on the spot. Remember, it’s not what you make but what you keep. We really enjoyed this show and I recommend getting the audio commentary so that you know the history of what is what. A great spot to take pictures next to the yachts and boats.

My sister Veronica assisted with some of the must do places. I will cover these in a few… Thanks sis!

So I have a friend who I’ve known since 6th grade. She was someone who I actually had a crush in for all of my middle school years. That’s besides the point but she knows Maui, Hawaii and I decided to ping her on Facebook because she’s a great friend. Chantelle is awesome and recommended some great spots… accept this one. She didn’t recommend the Road to Hana. We actually had 2 people tell us they didn’t but we did it with fashion. There’s an app called The Gypsy Guide of the Road to Hana. I highly recommend spending the $5 and getting it from the app store. You learn the history and the travels to the Road to Hana. Here are some of our pictures from this amazing trip… And yes, planning ahead by reading this post is key to winning a bad ass trip to Maui….

 

Don’t these pictures look like a fake backdrop? Seriously though!

Ok so enough with this awesomeness. I absolutely unequivocally believe you deserve the best. And YOU do.

Xochilt, myself, Lil Cesar, Adam, and Luke believe it also!

When you’re spending time in Paradise. Oh my goodness, time just suddenly stops and calls for you. Why would you have it any different?

 

 

 

We visited Our Lady of Guadalupe on her Feast Day Dec 12th. It’s amazing that Maui’s Catholic Church honors her appearance in Mexico in the 1500s. Respect!

You must try the Gelato on Front Steet! We also Enjoyed the Pizza!

Using Advanced Search on Facebook Method Tips

Advanced Search on Facebook

 

In today’s tip, I’m going to show you what is working now in 2017 for Advanced Search on Facebook. At first I thought I would have needed an extra piece of software to be able to do this search but as it turns out, I didn’t have to. A simple creative thought of search in the example “Catholics in Temecula” will display a search of actual Facebook members with that search criteria. This will work for pretty much any subject and topic

Facebook has changed a lot of their methods over the years. As technology changes, this search tool may change as well so please don’t take it as it will work in the future, I am constantly contacting Dime IT support in Cumming, GA because I’m always very confused with all the changes. But as of January 21st, 2017 this information is still valid.

Feel free to share your thoughts below on how you do your Advanced Searches on Facebook and let me know if these tips help.

Why Cesar Ramirez Voted for Trump

My thoughts on the debate. Rarely do I talk about Politics on my personal blog. For most of you this was a battle between Democrats and Republicans. For me, this was a spiritual war between saving the United States of America and Satan’s bride who goes against everything I believe in and that of humanity.

I shared with my love ones truth. I read this information about what was about to come about over a year ago from a Catholic Convert name Charlie Johnston. He’s been visited by a Heavenly Angel since he was a kid and he was given a message to share with the world.

You can read more about his writings here: https://charliej373.wordpress.com/. As stated in this post I shared with my brothers and sister, I told them to prepare over a few months ago. The Rescue is coming at the end of 2017 for Christians.

Even with truth, some followed my advice, others pushed me aside. It’s easy to say “in your face” or “I told you so” with all the proven WikiLeaks facts of emails of Hillary’s corruption, but even with that there was an excuse. It was subconscious programming… hatred. It was a race card… it was stuff CNN or Univision or all the other corrupt mainstream media said about the entrepreneur man that goes against their agenda.

I grew up as a Democrat and that’s all I knew from my family. I like many in my family, was a “lukewarm Catholic.” I didn’t let go of control. I didn’t have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. My daily walk truly sucked. I even believed that change would fix the wide spread issues of equality by voting for Obama in 2008. For the last 8 years I’ve seen the Tech industry, the family unity, small businesses, and average Joe’s be destroyed by Globalist ideology.

I too wanted change as my friends and family, but opening doors that go against that of the Laws of God have torn us apart even more. Those that wanted their rights have only turned around to try to destroy history of what brought us here today. We may not all agree on Trump because he’s not your polished politician. Give him a chance. America voted and it proves folks aren’t looking for the talker. They’re looking for the doer. He isn’t funded by the corrupt system. Most of you work for a CEO that had dreams of building his/her own company. His real world experience will make us great again. God willing.

My own sister who’s a Medical Doctor I feared for because Obama Care is a disaster. It has destroyed a lot of small doctor practices. Fortunately, she’s not in that situation and works for a prestigious Hospital. As much as she doesn’t want to admit it, she knows Obama Care wasn’t a good idea. I used it before I had my current insurance and it really destroyed my small business. I had to drive 45 mins to see the only available family doctor on that dynamic disaster plan. It’s horrible for entrepreneurs or anyone without medical insurance.

I’m part of the 3% club in my family who voted for Trump. I speak up because I’m tired. I’m tired of making everyone happy and following the sheeple. We all must Rage Against the Globalist Machine. It’s unclear to me why the blinders are on for the 97% but it’s not my job to change anyone. It is my job to present the information and speak truth. In the end we all know who wins.

I hit rock bottom a few times in my life… Emotionally, financially, and spiritually. I wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed with school and having 4.0s. I had my share of struggles of losing it all. I didn’t have to kill or cheat anyone to get to where I am at today. I do enjoy the underdog stories of seeing that struggling everyday American work to the top. Whether you’re white, black, brown, green, blue or yellow you deserve to achieve your dreams.

I’m sad to say it, what Obama has created is a disaster for our country. This country was founded on Christian fundamentals whether you accept it or not. Branding #BlackLivesMatter creates race separation. It will be awhile for those changes to get put back into place. Only time will tell if there is hope left for the bleeding bucket that was left when Bush was in office with 9/11. We have not recovered from the open border disasters and frankly, I’ve never been around to see a president that runs against the globalist corruption. This is pretty sweet.

I as a Mexican American am proud of my heritage. With that said, I am a Patriot American first regardless of my race.  My grandpa came here from Mexico in the 50s for a better way of life. If I wave a flag around that I’m Mexican will only create conflict and separation. That goes for any other prideful act that involves Race, Sex, etc. I want our borders protected for the safety of my family. I’m sure most American’s do too.

I pray we all come in peace with each other. Thank you for everyone who believed in me. For believing in our Freedom. For the greater glory of tomorrow.

Now Mr. Donald Trump, 45th President, let us know how WE the people can serve you to fulfill your promises to destroy Obamacare, Common Core, and all the disasters that affect the freedom of families. For the home school families that teach their fundamentals to their children, today is a victory for our freedom. To the parents that choose not to have mandatory vaccinations, today is our freedom. Let’s come together as one and make America Great Again.

I’m Proud to be an American Catholic. Keep fighting the good fight my friends.

God Bless America,

Cesar Ramirez

Donald Trump’s First Tweet as President:

 

Donald John Trump is the President of the United States and a businessman. He is scheduled to take office as the 45th President on January 20, 2017. Wikipedia

Born: June 14, 1946 (age 70), Queens, New York City, NY

Candidate for: President of the United States

Party: Republican Party

Running mate: Mike Pence

Spouse: Melania Trump (m. 2005), Marla Maples (m. 1993–1999), Ivana Trump (m. 1977–1992)

Trumps Response to the issues that I looked for most:

Healthcare

Every American deserves access on How to market a dental practice, affordable health care, not just insurance. Obamacare has failed on cost and quality of health care. It must be repealed. America needs a patient-centered health care system, allowing families and their doctors to be primary decision makers. Provide for the sale of health insurance across state lines.

 

Economy and Jobs

Reform the tax code and trade policies to make it easier to hire, invest, build, grow, produce, and manufacture in America. Stop China from stealing our jobs, renegotiate NAFTA, cut unneeded regulations and make America the best place in the world to do business. Putting America First—and not globalism—will keep jobs and wealth in America.

Education

Every child in America deserves a great education and an opportunity to achieve their dreams. We will enhance education options for students through school choice and charters, and respect homeschoolers in their quest for educational alternatives. We will also make it easier for families to afford college so students aren’t buried in debt.

Nation Security

There are serious threats facing the United States, and American strength is the only way to ensure peace. We must rebuild our military, reform our intelligence agencies, and prepare our government for the security challenges of cyberspace.

Immigration

Restore integrity to our immigration system by prioritizing the interests of Americans first. Enforce our immigration laws – at the border and at the workplace. Build a border wall and end sanctuary cities. Send criminal aliens home. Welcome those who embrace our way of life, but keep out immigrants and refugees who don’t through rigorous vetting.
