Ok ok, i’m a nerd for being excited to share this stuff with you guys. But oh well.
Because I’m also trying to put them together to have a photo book printed off, this will be a great way for me to figure out how to lay them out so that they tell a story.
The island is so incredibly breath taking. Both sides, the tourist side and the local side. Although I totally fell in love with the locals. Made some new friends, really just found myself relaxing and happy and having the time of my life.
Met an ass named Lady Gaga and ogled over some incredibly huge avocados and other tropical fruits. Must have had fish or seafood at least once a day if not more. Befriended a chef who spoiled us with fresh caught crab rangoon and a variety of ceviche’s that were just delicious.
Found a few beaches to fall in love with, for snorkeling, swimming, lounging… tons of beaches to choose from. I spent time every single day in that ocean. I sang a silly song at the top of my lungs to the ocean and the palm trees. I danced and played in the surf late at night, I saw sea urchins as big as bushes under the sea. I also stepped on one of those suckers… but that’s another story.
T and I had a blast all week. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to travel with. To share an adventure with. I’ve never felt so lucky and happy and content. It was truly, one of the best times of my life. I was really upset to have to come home. I’ve recovered from that upset-ness, but I still dream of the ocean. I still wish, on a daily basis, that I could be sitting at my favorite beach, playing dice with a few of the amazing people I met while I was down there.
But I know… it’s started something. An itch to travel more… to see more… to meet more amazing people. I just can’t wait.
