One of the best ways to celebrate your birthday is going on a getaway and spending almost a week in white sand, clear waters of party resort town Punta Cana in the Caribbean country Dominican Republic. It was worth every penny.
One of the things to do while in Punta Cana is to take advantage of the many watersports and rides like jet skiing, kayaking, banana boat riding, and parasailing. For my birthday, I chose the latter, where you get strapped to a parachute while up in the air for 500 feet and pulled by an engine-powered boat.
Did it ever cross your mind to do something random? Or to conquer a fear? Or to check off one of the must-dos on your bucket list? I did. All three. In a day. And this all started when I was standing on a balcony while talking with a new found friend about carpe diem--seizing the day.
