What do you do while waiting for vaca to get here?

Just wondering what everyone does in the meantime - while waiting for the trip to get here?

How do you prepare?

I typed up a good check-list based on the suggestions I found here in the forum from the veteran travelers.

... installed a "countdown" app on my phone to see how many days left until paradise

I usually look at what I want to do outside of the resort like fishing or even a nice restaurant. I did the zip line when I got there. It rained most of the time that we were there but that's ok, there was plenty to do at the resort.

Well so far I have purchased our snorkels and masks. I have typed up an itinerary. Have several notes based on education on tripadvisor. Also have questions into my travel agent regarding tourist card and departure taxes.

tik toc tik tok - not going fast enough - but probably will fly once there...

Remember to take your probiotics for a week before you leave. Remember to take Damp-Rid to get rid of the moister in the room. Need one or two for the room and one or to for the closet.

Decide what DVD's to take on the plane with you. I think a lot of airlines don't show movies anymore.

Buy your Tourist Card on line to save time waiting in line when you land in the DR. It is $10.00 and you print it out. One less thing to do.

Do you have the website address to do that Kathy? We are travelling with Sunwing and they don't include the tourist card in their package fees. Thanks
