White sands, warm blue water, surrounded by palm trees, amazing food and drinks, beautiful room, hot tub on the balcony, breathtaking views, heart vibrating music on the beach, so much love and so many positive vibes make for an amazing week in the Dominican with the love of my life. An experience that would take too long to describe (and I wouldn't want to lose your attention), but would like to share just a few tidbits about it.
It is always nice to step out of your everyday life, your everyday world, and experience something new, something different. It opens your eyes and heart to things you didn't see or feel before, or maybe things that haven't surfaced in a while. It's a beautiful thing. I am not a fancy girl by any means. I grew up a tomboy in the woods, camping in the summer for vacations, playing sports, wearing hand-me-downs and working hard for everything I have. So to be waited on hand and foot in paradise getting everything free....including drinks....was crazy. The room I lived in for a week was grand enough to live in year round. It was nice to experience that kind of lifestyle. I also liked that we weren't overly engulfed in it. We were surrounded by music fans/festival goers who share the same simple, fun-loving lifestyle that we do. The happiness, love and family-like atmosphere combined with over excitement and hunger for fun of the crowd kept the feel of this all inclusive, "royal" resort life to a minimum.
