Caribbean dream | Wanderlust

SHOP my look below
Whilst there is no denying that Autumn is my favourite season I find myself, like everyone else, lusting after Summer each year. The thrill of the city in the Winter months is motivating however as the heat approaches island hopping falls top of my agenda. 
This Summer I spent my time in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. This Caribbean island fell nothing short of an escape. It's picture perfect landscape, vibrant culture and laid back attitude left me longing to stay for eternity- any wanderlusts dream.
I myself had never travelled to the Caribbean I had only been subjected to it through films and and Instagram. Through hearsay I never doubted that this tropical paradise would be everything I desire.
I took the nine hour Dreamliner trip across the Atlantic and down onto the island. Whilst many visit Punta Cana, we stayed North of the island which very much like my trip to Mexico gave a new outlook on everything that I had heard, we really were immersed within this culture. 
Immediately the golden sand, shades of blue, mountainous view and the kindest people you could have ever met made this vacation one of the best that I had ever been on. The Dominican Republic thrives off tourism and that becomes clear to see as you travel around the island, seeing just exactly how many live and realising just how lucky you really are.
One of my favourite things about travelling to any sunshine destination is that I love being surrounded by nature, particularly forest which was clear to see in my trip to the Sorgun forest a few years back. It's places into perspective that everything around you is living, and to harm it would be a tragedy. Vacations are about leaving your troubles behind and escaping. 
My first day in the Caribbean made this a reality.
