To celebrate our second anniversary, my hubby and I decided to vacation in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Needless to say, it was an interesting trip as we struggled to try and escape Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 hurricane, that was headed right in our direction as we arrived. We enjoyed the first two days of our trip at the beautiful Secrets Royal Beach Resort, trying to spend as much time as we could on the beach before the storm hit. Our trip was supposed to be 6 days, 5 nights, but was unfortunately cut short as we struggled to find a flight, any flight, back to the United States. We were extremely panicked as the hurricane came closer, and ended up taking our only option of a flight to Aruba [so terrible, right?! ;)] just to get south of the storm and back to home safely. We stayed one night at the beautiful Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino before heading back to the states. We thankfully managed to escape the hurricane just in the nick of time, and got to enjoy one more morning on the beautiful beaches of Aruba. It was absolutely incredible. I hope to return, soon. Needless to say, this vacation was one we will tell our kids about, someday.
