We went all out on our "Girls night out with surprisingly good weather " event.
All we wanted was to get a good picture taken but we kept asking people and apparently everyone was too drunk and ended up taking horrible out of focus and cropped pictures. The theme of the night was quickly changed to "Bad Picture night (with surprisingly good weather) "
The best pic we got was sadly, a selfie.
It's starting to feel a lot like Summer and I'm lovin't it.
It took me almost 12 hours to get from the resort in Punta Cana to my apartment.
I left at 10:30 and didnt make it home until 10pm
Shuttle - Airport - Flight- Airport- Flight - Metro = 12 hours of fun.
FourSquare is proud of my being in airports 6 weeks in a row.
The JFK airport is pretty nice.
And the good news is that I only gained one pound after all that weekend eating and drinking.
And also, I have 29% body fat. Totally not-obese. Yay me!
The beaches are awesome and postcard perfect. White soft cold sand and blue green blue ocean.
We went right before the rainy season so we had perfect weather. A little cloudy but the rain stayed away. Perfect beach weather to hang out in the shade to avoid sun burn.
We took the snorkeling tour to a little reef form the hotel. Not very impressive. They told us there is much better snorkeling somewhere else in the island but that would have meant leaving the resort.
We did not leave the resort. I did all the required research of what to do and where to do in town but the plan was never executed.
The resort was great. "Paradisus Palma Real" . Totally recommended. Great Service and amenities. The only minor problem was that the internet was spotty. I know my problems are small when my biggest problem is that I cannot upload pictures from the beach.
The hotel's food and drinks were delicious however the best food was the "international food" and the Asian fusion restaurant. The seafood was remarkable and there were 5 types of ceviche in the buffet at all times. I was not impressed by the most traditional dominican food "Bandera" but the fried plantains are always a delight.
We were told that the "Mama Juana" was a Most in Dominican republic so we tried it. Its horrid and I regret all three Mama Juana shots that I took.
I never got to exchange money and therefore I did not get Dominican currency for my collection. I fail in life
