My mom passed away on October 16, 2022. She had pancreatic cancer so I was prepared for this but it still hard. My dad also passed away from cancer so I was already familiar with the process of what happens after a parent passes this time is different because my mom and I did everything together before. My mom and I were each other’s bubble during the pandemic and we were each other’s social life for a long time. It is a tough adjustment now living in a different city where I don’t know many people without the person that I spent most of my free time with. My moms last words to me were be strong you are strong I will hold on to that. My mom also wrote a goodbye letter to my brother and me. I’m not sure if my brother has read it yet but I want to say if you are going to write a goodbye letter don’t wait until you are heavily medicated and in lots of pain to do it or just don’t do it. I’m holding on to the actual memories I had with my mom the letter has been given to my brother to do wh

Grand Bahia Turqesa Dominican Republic

This is an all inclusive resort in punta Cana. It is a complex of five resorts and this is the furthest from the beach and the cheapest. I really enjoyed it the staff were all friendly our housekeeper didn't speak English and I only speak a little Spanish but it wasn't a problem she was always around we could communicate what we needed. There was only one bed in the room we wanted two so they came right away and made the day bed it was comfy. There was always a tram available to take us where we wanted to go but we spent most of our time at our resorts pool lobby and buffet which was only a few minute walk or at the main hotel which had shops and a casino was also a short walk as well. We did take the tram a few times to see the restaurant and other resorts a couple of time just because it was a fun ride. The beach was beautiful they kept the sand so clean the first time I thought it's really rare that sand is so soft with no rocks in it but the second time it was windy and there was a kit of sticks around they spend a lot of time cleaning the beach. There was food available during the day lots of choices pretty much everything was buffet with lots of variety I had no problem finding vegetarian food. The evening most of the restaurants convert to a la cart which need reservations we only went to one because we couldn't get the times we wanted it was good. We enjoyed the buffet they also had theme nights so it wasn't the same thing every night. I also enjoyed the coffee and hot chocolate vending machine in the lobby I only drink espresso based drinks so it was nice that was always available along with regular tea coffee juice. I don't drink alchohal so I didn't use the bar much I tried a Virgin mojito and it was sugar sweet syrup so I was much happier drinking my tea and coffee. The casino made a nice Virgin fruit punch it was the same menu as the other resort bars but I tried it at another bar and it was sugar syrup again. The resort is big and beautiful but it is easy and safe to walk everywhere or take a tram the staff is super nice they will make sure you are looked after. I was looking for relaxation not adventure I had s pool a bed and food and so much everything that I wanted I got.
