Farewell Dominican Republic, It Was Fun

Tomorrow is the last day of my 2 week Dominican Republic vacation. Two weeks was a bit long for me as I like 10 days and then I want to get back home. After you have 2 kids it's hard to really hard to relax 100% on a vacation. You need to watch them all the time and that can get draining. The place was great, but the weather in Punta Cana sucked the last 4 days, it's was really windy so we couldn't enjoy the sandy beaches. Then my daughter got sick and now my wife and I are both sick with some cold if you can believe that? I got a cold in a tropical country, yeah I'm cool. So tomorrow we fly out at like 11 pm, and we fly all night and get home at roughly 5:00 am Vancouver time on Monday morning. Flying all night long may or may not be good, depending on if the kiddies will sleep and also if I can sleep on those Air Transat planes. So I am home by 5 am Monday and then I am back to my old life in Vancouver. I only left my room about 1 hour ago and here I am. I haven't even eaten anything yet today, I had zero energy to get out of bed this morning. Luckily my wife brought a bottle of Advil and that seems to have kicked in so I have some energy and don't feel like hell anymore. I kind of realized after this vacation, that I hate vacations! I have come up with a solution though to this problem though! I plan on buying some type of 2 bedroom condo in a hot place such as San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas or Palm Springs or somewhere like that. I did the calculations and it's cheaper in the long run if I buy a condo in a hot climate rather than spend $5,000 per year taking the family on 2 week vacations. So that is my official goal, I am buying a vacation condo that I own 100%, no time share b.s (that's a scam). Anyways, it's been relaxing, stressful, fun, tiring, drunk, sober, tanned, burned and all around a good time. It was a cool place to visit and experience. I was watching the news and the Dominican Republic is on a island that is shared with Haiti (never knew that). Haiti is a 3rd world country and I know the Dominican is just as bad, even though I never actually saw the poverty with my own eyes since I stayed in a resort my whole vacation.  It's hard to believe that such a beautiful place is a 3rd world country. I am lucky to be from a place as rich as Canada, and I never forget that. The weather may suck in Vancouver but you can do whatever you want there. Any dream you want can happen, try telling that to the people here.  Anyways hasta luego (see you later) Dominican. I snapped more photos of pizza, lizards, flowers, pigeons and etc... all the pizza you can eat! ebony & ivory... another Gecko lizard I caught on camera... gardener with my daughter... daughter & wifey all dressed & going to dinner... a ton of coconuts for sale at $1 each... German tourist with some guy with sharp teeth... outdoor street fiesta... gardener climbing a coconut tree to get some fresh coconuts to sell...
