Winter Escape - Punta Cana

Last month my college girlfriends and I met in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for a weekend of fun in the sun.  After the winter we've had in NYC, I can assure you that I will be planning at least one warm-weather getaway in Jan/Feb, it's a necessity!  Vitamin-D deficiency and seasonal affective disorder are NO JOKE!  

I had the first flight out of JFK on a perfect day for flying, bright blue skies, no weather issues, smooth sailing.  Or not, when Delta forgets to book a co-pilot for my flight.  OF ALL THINGS!  Even with a business class upgrade, the 5-hour delay put a slight crimp in my plans, but all was forgotten the minute I stepped off that plane.  

We stayed at the Sanctuary Cap Cana, and sanctuary it was!  We booked on Jetsetter and thanks to a friend we were upgraded to one of their beachfront villas!  As we pulled up to the room in a golf cart Erin exclaimed "I feel like I'm on the bachelor!"  To top it off there was champagne and a beautiful fruit plate waiting for us!  We popped the bottle and started off the best weekend, full of laughter, sun, cold drinks, and the best breakfast buffet ever, just what the Dr. ordered!

Finally on the plane, had to celebrate with a mimosa

Wine with lunch, always






Always and forever making friends with pool boys...




Feels like a dream…..where to next year ladies??
