Punta Cana: Why?
Updated: Dec 6, 2018
My husband and I have been spending our winters in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for the past three years. Previously we travelled throughout Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam, Europe, all over the US and Caribbean, but have found our hearts in Punta Cana.
32 km's of white sand beach, crystal blue water and a consistent sunny 29 degree weather, why not? That being said, we have also made a lot of friends from the Dominican Republic, all over Canada and the United States. We often joke that we have more of a social life here then we do back in Nova Scotia (our other home base). Then again, that's actually the truth! I will share posts about the fun things we do with our friends.
People will question us how we are able to live here for 5 months, and to be honest, it does take work. We are retired, we worked hard to get to this place, and we live on a (semi) budget all year round. Well, other than some on-line shopping occasionally (curse you Amazon).
Well, that makes me sound like I am a old lady. Old, not so much (44 at the time of this post), lady (depends on the day LOL). All I know is that if you can, you do. I hope that anyone deciding to follow my adventures, big & small, will enjoy them as much as I hope to.
