Before we got engaged, Chad made the mistake of sending me a discount travel email. He was sending it just as an FYI, but I took it to mean, "Look Biscuit, these are some great deals on fun trips. We should book one." So I did. Within a few hours of receiving the email, I had purchased two tickets to the Caribbean!
I got us a trip to the Dominican Republic over Chad's birthday weekend. We stayed at a gorgeous resort in Punta Cana.
One of the days we were there, we went on a snuba excursion (combination of snorkeling and scuba diving) and we (Chad) got to drive our own personal speed boat to the snuba site. It was a ton of fun and only a little scary.... Chad told me afterwards there were only a couple times when he thought he might actually flip the boat.
The week of relaxation and sunshine was just what we needed, and now that we are back in rainy Seattle, we are really looking forward to Tahiti after the wedding.
