In just over 3 weeks I will be heading south to a swanky all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana.
I cannot wait. With the weather being as cold as it's been here lately (-40 with the windchill), it couldn't have come at a better time.
Thing is... I have never traveled south before. Over 10 years ago I made it as far as Florida, but I stayed with a friend & her mom in a condo they were renting... so it was a lot different than joining a group of 60 headed down the Dominican for a wedding. A wedding I'll be photographing, by the way.
All I know is that I have to use my camera bag as a carry on. Ain't no way I'm letting that out of my sight!
Other than that, I'm starting to stress out about what I should be packing and what the etiquette is once I get down there. It's all inclusive, but I'm assuming I still need to tip?
What are you best tips & tricks for a newbie like me? What do you do make your trip go as smooth as possible?
