Punta Can A Short Story

Improved Essays
It all started when my first cousin proposed to his bride to be and suggested that he and his wife have an extravagant destination wedding. I come from a huge family, so he reached out to all his 1st, 2nd immediate cousins and family members to come on this trip to celebrate their love. I have always been afraid of flying and not to mention have never been out the country. I had to apply for a passport and save money up to pay for this trip which I didn’t realize how my life changed before it was actually time for me to go. I was hesitant to go because this was a “NO KIDS” trip. I have two children: a boy and a girl. I quietly thought if I was going out of the country for the first time that they should definitely come too. I made all and any …show more content…
I suddenly thought to myself, talking to myself in my head almost arguing with myself about how foolish it would have been of me to not attend such an amazing getaway; physical and mental. The plane ride was a breeze. I slowly walked off the plane excited but nervous to loud singing and colorful fruit drinks waiting for me while I waited for my bags to come. Another cousin of mine around the same age as me flew together and rode in the taxi together to the villa where we were staying. Driving through the open roads of Punta Cana, smelling this different air that I was not used to being in the U.S. in the city was a great feeling. We arrived at the Villa where it looked like a gated community. Everybody was so happy and vibrant! Every person I walked passed had a smile on their face and always greeted you with a pretty smile and a friendly …show more content…
I made a few Wi-Fi calls to my children to make sure they were okay with their dad, they were! I continued to enjoy my trip! It was an all-inclusive trip so I woke up to fresh food, breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. I rode on a horse in the sand which was different. I enjoyed my time on this beautiful island with my family and friends of the family. We had a great time. When it was time to pack up and leave, I didn’t want to go. I went from being in summer wear for a week to putting my winter clothes on to catch the next flight back to the states. It was bittersweet. I did not want to

    Time is constant, it will always be moving forward. Making the hour and a half long drive to the beach does not seem so bad now but as a kid it seemed like an everlasting eternity in the backseat. At least, that’s the way I remember my families trips to the beach. I especially loved our Pismo camping trips because we would always leave on Fridays to beat the traffic and I would never have to go to school that day. I was nine years old turning ten this weekend and I was extremely excited.…

    I was having so much fun, and going on lots of adventures that I usually wouldn't be doing at volleyball camp. After being in such a tropical and beautiful place you realize how shitty the place you live in is. But everything came to an end when we were boarding the plane heading home. I was so sad to be leaving but at the same time I was really happy to be heading home.

    In the first place, it makes me happy because on the way there I usually take a flight.I like planes because of the service, the food, and the television. About a year ago when I went to India I flew in a plane. It gave me time to relax and watch television.It also means that I can do whatever I want. Whenever I need something I click the little button next to me and someone will come and help me with what I want.Furthermore, traveling makes me happy because I get to see the scenery and see the world outside of me. When I was seven years old I went to Europe over the summer break.…

    However, I declined since it was my first time flying, and I did not want to separate from my family. As the plane accelerated for takeoff, the turbulence of the plane wearied me at first, for the plane began to rock from side to side, and my ears began to pop. Other than that, the flight was quite tranquil; the beautiful, blue sky and the cotton ball-like clouds made the view…

    Regardless if my family is celebrating a holiday, or just meeting up for a quick ten minutes, nothing can surpass the lively enjoyment we have together. As my siblings and I grow older, it is challenging for all of us to gather at the same time, but we can usually rely on our mom to round us up. She is the glue that keeps our little clan together. Never will I let slip from my mind a particularly special day in August 2012, when my mom sent out a group message to my siblings and me. She asked our availability for a last-minute day trip to Sedona; remarkably, none of us had any prior commitments and we managed to convene within the hour.…
