Hey Hey to my fello Ta people.....
I am a fan of all the threads and reviews on Ta.....I am a small town gal from alberta (maybe 800)....and I have been to Jamaica..(which I LOVED) read review.
I am booked to head to the grand bahia on Jan 24th.....and still wish to go back to Jamaica....but willing to try something new.
I have watched the forums and tried to get some info ect.....
I have to giggle at the reviews on here....some good and some bad....right down to some one smashing the French and Britans, and a guy who actually hauls along a gsp to clock the time it takes to go complain to the front desk at the resort.Smashing the resorts. The people who complain because the pillows were to soft....and food was bad....or no lounge chair awaiting them....
EXCUSE ME!!! wake up people in your, whatever world u live in!!
You think cause u spend 2 grand to go to a all inclusive to get ur 5 star treatment.
Have you ever gone in your own back yard?....where things cost you a fortune??...and people are rude ect...I see that right here in my own life....think about it!
You Go to the resort you have picked for ur vacation.....lay in the sun....pick food and drink of ur choice.....talk to the punta canta Mikes,,,on the forums who are so helpful...and come back and tell me that ur vacation was bad !!!and I will tell u to take 2 advills and call me in the morning..Maybe just bad luck....or grouchy wife or hubby....or just a bad day.
One day these trips will not be so cheap and u may have to stay home and look out ur back door for a nice sunset and drink and food at ur becon call....think about it....(if there was a resort where u live... with the wages these people work for!....it would cost a fortune. To employ people at their standards!....so grow up!!!....be thank-ful....that u have the chance to go to these places. Stay home Pay 30 bucks to go a block with a cab to get a meal that cost another 40 bucks and maybe have bad service.....or maybe just go camping at 40 bucks plus.....Just quit complaining that u spend a fortune to go somewhere cheaper that ur own home town....and people that are not as lucky as us...that have to work way harder and still manage a smile.
Go enjoy and be thankful.. make it as good as u want !!
If there is a gieco crawling on the wall....or the water is to salty...or the abundace of food and drink is not to ur liking....stay where you are and and pay what you do now $$$$$$$$$$$$$ for a whole lot less maybe.
I plan on going to have some fun.....and I am not taking a gps....I give a crap if the food is cold....could stand to lose a pound or 10....and going to find the Forum Mikes and buy them a drink or 2 for just being good sports!
I will be the alberta girl enjoying!
my motto "BE HAPPY DON'T WORRY!
