Living with the Travel Bug

I can't think of anything I love more than traveling. I love visiting new places, trying new food and exploring different cultures and scenery. Everything about traveling fascinates me and I especially love the feeling of finally getting to cross a new country or city off my bucket list. I try to do at least one big trip every year and a few small trips to different cities either by taking a road trip or quick flight. I've already planned our travel adventures for the first half of the year and hoping to add a few more places to the list.

2014 Travel Plans:
January: Vegas (more about my Vegas trip here)
April: New Orleans for a bachelorette
May: St. Pete Beach, FL for a wedding
June: Boca Raton, FL for an engagement party

And our biggest trip for the year...
We're heading to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for a friend's destination wedding this summer! We've been saving for months and months for this trip so I'm SO happy to finally have the hotel and flights confirmed and booked!

Cute wedding invitations perfect for a destination wedding.

Their wedding happens to fall on the same weekend as our anniversary so it's a 2-in-1 vacation to celebrate with friends and then stay on an extra day to do our own celebration. 

This resort also offers a complimentary Anniversary package so I was excited to find out we get some extra stuff for free:
~ Bottle of sparkling wine
~ Fresh fruit platter
~ Romantic breakfast in bed with mimosas
~ 15% discount on all spa treatments 

I've never been to the DR and the resort is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort that just opened 4 months ago so I'm beyond excited and counting down the days to be on vacation with friends in paradise!

K and I also want to book an excursion for our anniversary day. We're tossing some ideas around ~ maybe para-sailing, horseback riding, jet skiing, swimming with dolphins or a catamaran cruise.

For those that have been to Punta Cana or a similar destination, what's your favorite type excursion or thing to do on vacation?
