Next stop Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

In a couple of weeks (who am I kidding, in 17 days... Yes, of course I'm counting them down) we'll be heading to Punta Cana for the first time. For a travel research junkie like me this has been a little challenging. We booked with Apple Vacations on their 5 Apple Square Deal so we don't know exactly where we will be staying until we check in at the airport. I'm not even exactly sure how that works. Do we check in with Apple or with the airline or both? Anyway, I've been obsessed with trying to figure out where we'll end up. I'm not as crazy as some people I've found on but if I had to place a bet I'd guess we'll be at the Riu Bambu. Seems many people on this deal end up there and if we do I'll be quite happy.

We started the process of packing yesterday which is always fun. Watching my wife try on swimsuits... I can't complain. I ordered sunscreen from I'm trying to figure out the baggage policy on Frontier Airlines but I think we're going to have to pay to check our bag. Ugh. But on the other hand if we use the airport parking arranged by Apple Vacations we'll save about as much as we'll be spending to check our luggage so I guess it's a wash. But I really do like the regular parking at O'Hare.

Is it sixteen days yet....
