Happy 3 year Anniversary for HNT. The theme is 3, so there is a pic of 3 stray dogs on the beach in Punta Cana D.R.

So, I am home from vacation and forever changed. Every time I travel I have 3 rules: 1. No rules 2. Meet as many new people as possible  3. Make at least 1 new friend that will be my friend forever.  I accomplished all of them 10 fold.

I met a couple from Germany that I know will be my friends forever. We already set plans for them to visit NYC in the fall and stay with me, and I will be visiting them in Germany for the next Love Parade Festival. 

I also met 2 sisters from Hungary that I had the best time with. They  were two of the coolest girls I have ever known. One of the girls just captured my heart, and we spent a few days hanging out and getting to 
know each other. She was gorgeous, awesome personality, big heart, and a faithful-honest girl who would not cheat on her boyfriend. I am in love! There was a definite connection for both of us, we exchanged email addresses and intend to keep in touch, you never know what the future has in store.

Punta Cana is beautiful, the people were awesome, I became friends with everyone. I miss it!  My day consisted of waking up at 9am after going to bed at about 6am, heading to the cafeteria for fresh fruit and eggs. Then to the beach for the whole day to sunbath, play with the stray dogs and swim.

At 4 we would play bacci ball on the beach by this cantina, get a little typsy and then head to the pool for 5:30 meringue/salsa lessons.  One hour power nap at 7 and dinner at 8:30. Then to the outdoor lobby to have a few shots of mama wanna the local liquid viagra - this stuff was good - smooth! Then dance until the sun came up. 

So, why am I forever
 changed? Well, I have a renewed faith in love. I believe that there is someone out there that can make me happy again, and after chilling with my german friends I know that there are people in relationships who love traveling and partying together, and are happy. It made me happy to feel those things, and a little sad, because as happy as I am, I want that someone special to do these things with, and I miss my friend from hungary. 

Luv ya,

Everytime I travel and meet people my eyes and heart become more open and I realize there is so much more to life.

Just have fun with your friends and experience what life gives you and one day you will run into the person you are suppose to be with.

I'm glad you had fun on your vacation!

I love your travel rules, I'm going to send you an invite to my private blog.
I also fed and sheltered those stray dogs in Punta Cana (stayed at Bahia Principe)
Every morning, I'd go to the buffet and fill my purse with meats and cheeses and bottle water and walk to the beach end where the merchants were selling souveniers to feed those poor dogs.
Happy HNt!
I have pictures of it in my blog archives.

My son and his girl friend left for Punta Cana last Friday. They went last year and loved it, so decided to go back again. I pick them up at JFK tomorrow and can't wait to see the pictures. Where did you stay?

You look so happy in those pictures! Good for you.

I know about missing someone, I miss my Hubby something awful, it sucks being half a world away from each other. This is why I'm keeping my fingers crossed we can meet next year in Spain! Because I really need to see my Hubby again!

Lovely romantic and beautiful pictures Marcello!

1. It looks like you had a fabulous vacation.

2. The puppies are adorable, but I'm a girl, so I have to say that. :)

3. You're adorable--and even though I'm a girl, I don't have to say that. :D

Happy HNT!
