Vacation Imminent

I have had this trip planned for well over a month now. In my mind, I have wanted to visit Puerto Rico for a few years now. It is finally becoming a reality for me after dreaming for so long.

I absolutely ready for this trip, not necessarily prepared though. I am a last minute packer. Don't ask why, it is just how I am. It always seems to work out in the end for me. I don't get stuck in my thoughts when it comes to exciting, new things. The anticipation is just too much sometimes, I get anxious. I typically don't think deeply on new experiences until they are actually happening, that is exactly how the time I went skydiving went..
Assuming how something you have never done before will go is unlikely to lead to the truth.

Puerto Rico is south east off of the United States, east of Mexico, just North of Venezuela, located right in the Caribbean next to the Dominican Republic.
I will be staying in Rio Grande, about 30-40 minutes east of the capitol of PR, San Juan.

I will be writing, taking pictures, and making vlogs of my adventures on this beautiful island. I hope that you will follow me on my exploration.

Most excited for...

I will now list some of the aspects of visiting Puerto Rico that I am looking forward to the most.

Beaches

The beaches are what I am most excited about. I love being able to relax with my feet in the sand and jump into some turquoise water. One of my favorite things in the world.

Food

The food, particularly the kiosks at Luquillo since they will be very close to me. If you know me, then you know I love to eat. There are over 50 different kiosks in Luquillo. I wonder how the plant-based options will be.

Warm Weather

Here in West Virginia, the weather is still fluctuating. There are days where it has hit 60 degrees, then a few days later it snows. I am most at home during the summer. It will be in the 80s every single day that I am in Puerto Rico, beautiful sunrises and sunsets will be viewed daily.

Bio Bay

The bioluminescent bay at Vieques is something I have longed to see for a few years now.

Beach House

I found an AirBnB located on the beach in Rio Grande. I wrote a blog that has more pictures.

Rainforest

This will be the first time I am somewhere that has an actual rainforest. El Yunque is still recovering from Hurricane Maria, however it is at least back open to the public finally.

Old San Juan

Just from the look of Old San Juan in photos, I know that I will be at home here. The colorful architecture, and the cobblestone streets are my style. This area dates back to the 16th and 17th century, when Puerto Rico was in Spanish possession.

EDM

Meeting and going to some shows with my friend who is an EDM DJ/Producer. His name is GhostKilla
Feel free to listen to his newest song Executioner

Driving

I am not sure what rental car they are going to give me yet, however I was told it would likely be either a Dodge Challenger, Ford Mustang, or Chevy Camaro. All of which I am very excited to drive in the Caribbean.

DiaMond Tree

Hoping to have my first full experience with code-word DiaMond Tree. I have many visionary experiences in the past before, but never a fresh brew that is ultra powerful like this.

Yoga

I actually don't have any yoga photos at the beach. I will be sure to take some on this trip. At least this photo shows that the beach is my natural atmosphere. This photo was taken in the Bahamas a couple summers ago.

Meeting @sean-king

Screen Shot 2018-04-01 at 12.26.06 PM.png

I finally get to meet my great friend @sean-king, who has been very influential towards my success on Steemit. Most of all I just want to thank him face to face and talk about life.

Locals

Meeting local Puerto Ricans should be an interesting situation. I have a feeling they will be great people. I work with somebody who lived there most of his life, and he is one of the kindest human beings that I know.

New Friends

I hope to also make some everlasting friends! Anybody who lives in Puerto Rico, feel free to contact me. I would be more than happy to meet while I am visiting.

From the photos, it looks like you had a lot of fun down there.

I really hope Puerto Rico recovers economically from those nasty Hurricanes.

·

I haven't went yet, I will be there this time next week.

·

I was there not so long ago and it is recovering!

·
·

People tend to forget that PR and caribe have the hurricane problem every year. Last year's was big but by no means was it the end of PR for 2017 and its future.

·
·
·

Very true, the Caribbean get hit all the time!

Though this was a big one, I saw bridges washed out by flash floods in the center of the island... people are up and restoring whatever they can. They are a strong community.

Thanks for letting me know that! It is pretty great to be featured on such a great account.

Hello from puerto rican living in the good ole dubV! Pleaseeee go check out the only US National Park's Rainforest preserve named El Yunque National Rainforest! One of the best places to see in PR!

·

Wow, that’s too crazy. We both live in WV. I’m excited to finally visit Puerto Rico. I will for sure visit El Yunque at least a few times. I am staying very close to there.

Oh wow.. 1 week left, that's awesome. Looks like you have your trip planned out too!

Have fun!

·

Yes! I’m so excited. I have plans of what to do, but not exactly when to do it all. I will just be flowing while there.

·
·

Nice, yeah, follow the flow! Last I went to latin america solo, all I had was a one way ticket and no plan what so ever

You plan to experience DiaMond tree in PR? I didn’t know that was available here. Interesting.

·

If everything works out, yes.
It found me, yet again. I too didn’t think it there would be a presence on the island. I seem to be wrong about that though. Once I have more concrete details I’ll be glad to let you know.

I didn't know you were going to Puerto Rico! You will LOVE it!!! One of my fav Caribbean spaces... after JA of course.

Looking forward to pictures and videosssss. And ENJOY your vacation. Well deserved. I'm SOOO excited for you!

·

Yes I am extremely excited!
I have a great feeling about the adventure.

I will be sure to keep Steemit updated, no days off here.
