Grand Sirenis - Punta Cana

A beautiful resort with great pools and awesome staff. The view is ... well, a beach. The water is warm but rough, snorkelling is reserved for the brave. The nice sandy beach can lead you off for hours of sunscreeen protected adventure in either direction. I definitely enjoyed getting up decently early, living carefree, hanging out in the sun beside a pool with good wifi and books to read. It was nice taking turns getting refills at the bar and pausing to people watch, have conversations, and reflect openly with one another. It fuels a very specific part of me. I get to feel like a bougie rockstar for 5 or 6 days and that's a HUGE departure from my day-to-day hustle and grind of self-employment as a freelance artist.

Here're some photos from my vacation with my aunt to the Dominican Republic in March of 2019.
