We had thankfully gotten our TSA pre-check approval just in time and we easily and quickly made it throug security and breathed a sigh of relief as we sat down waiting to board. We didn't look excited at all, did we??!
Mr. and Mrs. Smith. This was our first time using that website but we will certainly be using it again, because everything was top notch and exceeded our expectations! The resort could have picked us up, but we chose to wing it a bit. We had a little trouble getting our car but eventually we were packed in like sardines and off, punctuated with a torrential down pour of course, so here's our trusty captain and co-captain as they navigated a new country and unknown roads. The rain eventually let up and we were able to pull over to a local roadside restaurant which really was pretty tasty food and totally authentic which was fun.
As we got closer to the resort there was a beautiful lookout that we stopped to take in the scenery. We decided to climbed up on top of the large rock to get a better view. My flip flops are quite slippery on the bottom so I had to take them off to climb up. Adam was trying to help me get my shoes back on because there were lots of broken glass bottles, however, in this picture that Carol captured, it looks like he's trying to push me over the rail... but he loves me, I'm pretty sure he wants to keep me around.
Upon our arrival at Sublime Samana, this is what met our eyes!
What a perfect picture this sight was!
This was our home away from home.
The master bedroom was really nice, with an open air bathroom.
We unpacked our things, slipped into swimsuits then headed straight to the beach. It was truly breathtaking to take in the unbelievable view that would be ours for the next four days!!
Leading up to our travel, we had been praying that our time away would feel multiplied. Thankfully, it really did seem like the moments didn't rush by, which was such a welcomed treat. We were able to enjoy moments together as couples but also had time alone, just us. It was a nice mix of both and helped contribute to the relaxing nature of the trip that both of us were seeking.
