We're Back! Dominican Recap Part 1

We're officially back from the Dominican Republic! I hope everyone had an awesome week. I'll do my best to try to catch up on all your blogs, but first I need to get caught up at work!

Don't hate me, but this week I'm just going to be blogging about our trip. Remember, this blog is also my personal (and public) diary. I definitely plan to look back on these posts in the future. So, bare with me and enjoy!


Andrew and I woke up bright and early on Friday, March 28 to hop on a plane and head to Puerto Plata, Dominican.


I have to start this recap off by saying that Air Transat is an amazing airline. I mean, just look at the lighting in the plane! The colours changed, depending if we were on the ground or not. Our flight was about 3.5 hours and we were given a hot meal, an alcoholic beverage and a large selection of in-flight movies. By the end of the flight home, I had seen Last Vegas (hilarious), Delivery Man (it was okay), Captain Phillips (very well done) and a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory.

On the bus: Andrew bored and on his ipad
After landing in Puerto Plata and grabbing our luggage, we made our way to the bus. We were so excited to make our way to our resort! That was, until our bus died. Yep, on the way to the resort, the transmission on the bus blew. So we had to sit and wait for a new bus to arrive.

Eventually, we made it to our resort though - hours before check-in time. Lucky for us, we had an ocean view suite ready for us which meant we didn't have to spend hours waiting to get settled in.

Our room was gorgeous and very spacious. We had an awesome patio which we enjoyed spending time on.


After getting settled in, it was time to eat. Oh man, Dominican food is amazing. After being to Cuba twice (Andrew has been three times), this food was definitely better than expected (if you haven't been to Cuba, you should know that the food there is not very good).


With full bellies, it was time to explore the beach.


The weather was perfect!


While taking in the scenery..


We watched planes fly above us.


As Andrew watched the planes, I set out to get us some drinks. What's an all-inclusive resort without the alcohol? It was time to get this party started!
