My love celebrated 50 years on this earth the first week of this past December. I was able to surprise him with the first trip we have ever taken. It was truly our Honeymoon.
Very secluded. 40kms north of Puerto Vallarta in Banderas Bay. The Grand Palladium Resort and Spa. Unbelievably beautiful. 7 days of togetherness and sun.
A few facts:
Average daily temp on the beach - 40+degrees
Drink of choice –
Laurie : Gin and soda water or Tequila
Dwayne: Frothy sweet things….ugh or Tequila
Books read: 3
Pictures Taken: 300+
Miles hiked: 0
I didn’t have any goals or expectations in mind about how we were going to spend our time. We both preferred spending our days on the beach or in the ocean. We stayed away from the pools and the Buffet and largely kept to ourselves. The few people we met were like ourselves, just looking for quiet.
The evenings were spent people watching and walking around the beautifully lit resort. We tried just about every brand of Tequila we could get our hands on and listened to some fantastic live music.
This trip helped me get over my fear of travel. The kids had their own private parties while we were gone and both they, the dogs and the house survived. The plane always took us to where it was supposed to and our baggage was never misplaced.
I think I never felt as loved and cherished by my husband as during those seven days. I will remember it always and hold those moments especially close.
