*Notes were actually composed in New Jersey, but are inspired by the trip to said island.

Until I get settled, I’ll post photos. That’s what I can do quickly. Like this photo of the sunset at the Majestic Elegance Resort in Punta Cana. Behind us, against the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, was an altar and the setup for a beach wedding.

If we traveled about 45 minutes down the beach to our left, we’d have hit Caribbean waters. But we didn’t. This woman was heading that way. Topless. I give her points for mad confidence/not giving a shit.

Points for confidence.

While we did do some ocean kayaking and went ziplining, I rather enjoyed just sitting around, reading, listening to the waves or splashing of people in the pool, and soaking up some quieter moments that didn’t exactly scream “TROPICAL RESORT!!!”

There were also some more colorful moments, like this young boy who serenaded our bus of ziplining tourists with his armpit farts on the roadside. A little further down the road, we were warned not to photograph another set of boys because they’d been known to run up to the vans and grab cameras right out of tourist’s hands. There was laughter when the guide mentioned this; I didn’t find it particularly funny, but maybe I’m just weird.
