I’m at a place in my life where I spend a lot of my vacation time going to weddings. Now, this isn’t a complaint…it’s more of a brag. I’m lucky to have such amazing friends who are able to find their loves and tie the knot…..mostly in beautiful destinations around the world. Well, this Friday I’m traveling to the Dominican Republic for the wedding of 2 of the most awesome people I’ve met in Pemberton: Zach and Alia. YAHOOOOO!
A friend, Tara, and I are sharing a room and it seems like a big, fun group of us from BC and Ottawa will be there. I’m stoked for many reasons:
*I love weddings!
*It’s been snowy and yucky here and I’m craving the beach.
*I’m excited to not do chores for 7 days.
*Friendship trips are really fun!
*Delicious food galore.
*No work for 7 days.
*SUNSHINE and TAN!
*I get to watch 2 awesome friends get married!
I’ve never been to Punta Cana or even the Dominican Republic. A recent Google search showed me that it shares an island with Haiti, and I’ve been there before. The poverty there made me feel guilty for being on vacation and I stole apples from the cruise ship to feed the workers.
As of right now, I don’t have plans to leave the resort except for a boat adventure (remember Jamaica? I have Gravol this time). I’m staying at this place (below). Have you been to Punta Cana and what do you suggest I do?
