Down in the DR

The past four days were pure magic spent in the heart of Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. 

We stayed at the massive, picture-perfect Hard Rock Hotel. You could seriously get lost walking around this place (Austin actually did, no shock there though). Complete with eight restaurants, casino and its own nightclub, there was anything and everything you'd need. We were celebrating a special birthday and had a weekend filled with nonstop sun and Miami Vices, complete with a final hangover from the depths of hell. 

This was my first time seeing Caribbean water, so as you'll notice in some of the photos, I was in awe of how pretty it was. And despite the hurricane that just passed through, the weather was beautiful the entire time!

Fun fact: Mamajuana (not to be confused with something else) is the Dominican shot of choice - a mixture of rum, red wine and honey - so expect to take a lot of these if you ever plan a visit. 

The aromatherapy massage was the cherry on top. The trip went by so fast and I needed about eight more days there, but I definitely plan to go back for more!
