Punta Cana Cowboys / Day One

18 Mar

The failing of man is the poverty of his desires.
– anon

Strangers in Paradise 

I never dreamed of ever going to Caribbean.
That’s something that rich people do.
But one day Rose said, “I want to go to Punta Cana.”
So … a Part-Time Greeter at Home Depot
and a House Cleaner go to Punta Cana.

A once in a lifetime experience.

Disembark … 8 hours to Punta Canada from Calgary

Punta Cana 3

Sunwing — cramped seats / Good pilots. The first thing that hits you is the humidity.

Punta Cana 4

Grab the bags

Punta Cana 5

Checking in … that’s not alcohol … but it’s good. 

One of the first things folks asked us when we got back was “How much did you drink?” We don’t drink. I did once. But I’ve found I can have a hell of good time without it. This seems to puzzle some people.

    What a fun adventure you are having. Always great to see something completely different. I’m glad you two got a chance to get away. Looking forward to reading more of your itinerary.

      Rose gets really stressed on her job – she deserves something special. It was rather amazing. We took over 1000 pics, so it’s really a tough decision what to post. A nice problem.
