LICENSE PLATE COLLECTION OF MATT EMBRO


DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - APRIL 2010

WHEN IT CAME TIME FOR OUR VACATION THIS TIME AROUND, WE PRETTY MUCH JUST WANTED TO RELAX AND LAY ON A BEACH FOR THE WEEK.. SO WE DECIDED TO GO BACK TO THE RESORT THAT WE GOT ENGAGED AT 3 YEARS EARLIER, THE BAHIA PRINCIPE IN RIO SAN JUAN, D.R. THIS WAY WE DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT FIGURING OUT THE RESORT AND ALL THE PLACES TO GO.. WE COULD JUST GET THERE AND RELAX SINCE WE ALREADY KNEW WHERE EVERYTHING WAS :)

WE BOOKED LAST MINUTE AND GOT A PRETTY GOOD DEAL, AND WE FLEW DOWN ON THE SATURDAY AFTERNOON, ARRIVING AT THE RESORT LATE AT NIGHT. THE FIRST FEW DAYS WE DID EXACTLY WHAT WE HAD PLANNED.. BEACH, DRINKS AND LOTS OF RELAXING. ON THE SUNDAY I HAPPENED TO SNAP A COUPLE PLATE PICS IN FRONT OF THE RESORT.. TWO DIFFERENT FONTS ON D.R. TRUCK PLATES.

THEN ON THE TUESDAY WE DECIDED TO GO ON A BIT OF AN EXCURSION TO GET AWAY FROM THE RESORT FOR A BIT.. IT WAS A COMBINATION OF JEEP SAFARI, HORSEBACK RIDING, BOAT RIDE AND BEACH VISIT.


ON THE FIRST LEG OF THE DRIVE, ON THE WAY TO HORSEBACK RIDING, WE DROVE PAST THE AREA THAT THE ORIGINAL JURASSIC PARK MOVIE WAS FILMED. LOOK FAMILIAR?


AFTER A LONG HOT DRIVE WE ARRIVED AT THE HORSEBACK RIDING PLACE. IT WAS FUN AND WE DID SEE SOME BEAUTIFUL SCENERY.. BUT IT WENT ON A LITTLE TOO LONG AND BY THE END OF IT MY ASS WAS ABOUT READY TO FALL OFF. LOL!


WHEN THAT WAS FINALLY OVER WE BOARDED THE JEEP AGAIN AND HEADED INTO THE TOWN OF RIO SAN JUAN TO BOARD THE BOAT. BEFORE THE BOAT THOUGH WE HAD A FEW MINUTES, SO I HAD TIME TO GRAB A BEER AND SNAP A COUPLE MORE PLATE PICS.. CURRENT D.R. MOTORCYCLE AND SUV PLATES.


THEN.. THE BOAT RIDE. WE NAVIGATED THE RIO SAN JUAN OUT TO THE CARIBBEAN SEA AND HEADED EAST A FEW KM ALONG THE BEAUTIFUL NORTH COAST OF THE ISLAND.


AFTER ARRIVING BACK ON SHORE I HAD TIME FOR ANOTHER BEER AND SOME SUGAR CANE.. THEN WE HEADED TO THE BEACH FOR A COUPLE HOURS OF R & R.


THE REST OF THE WEEK WAS PRETTY UNEVENTFUL.. JUST WHAT WE HAD PLANNED. LOTS OF SAND, SUN, DRINKS, FOOD AND RELAXATION (PLUS A COUPLE MORE PLATE PICS). NICE :)


CHEERS :)
