As you may know, I LOVE to travel. I never need an excuse but this past vacation had the best reason: Alia and Zach were getting married. They picked an awesome resort and destination and I just got back from a week in Puta Cana, Dominican Republic. The resort was beautiful, the food and drinks were delicious and the people were a hoot! The day usually started off with relaxing on the beach, listening to the waves crash while the warm ocean air brushed my body. By afternoon we were near the pool……the sand gets everywhere and it’s ice to have a break. I treated myself to a massage at the spa, one day and ate steak 3 times. The wedding was magical and full of love and tears of happiness. If you ever find a love like theirs, you are very lucky! Any how, here are some snaps from my vacay. Where to next?
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?
