Long Weekend in Punta Cana, DR

Mike and I honored the presidents with four days in the Caribbean this past weekend. Beachy vacations aren’t usually our thing–we’d often rather be hiking a mountain or exploring a city. But we had planned this for December as a way to use a few remaining vacation days and get out of the cold quickly and inexpensively. (Our trip was then rescheduled.) And even though I don’t think we’ll be changing our travel habits anytime soon, we both had a great time in Punta Cana. We swam in the ocean, played pool basketball, walked on the beach, kayaked, played tennis, and rested our minds and bodies while soaking up the gorgeous weather. Oh, and we read a bunch of books (more on that later).
