Rock of Love -- Jetplanes Style

Okay I have a confession to make... I watch Rock of Love, there I said it.

But I generally record the 10am showing of it on Sunday morning (its the new one) and watch it after I have returned from my Sunday grocery shopping trip and enjoying my lunch. Yes, I am a creature of habit. These habits were created while the Mr. was MIA at training for 6 months.

Well I did notice on the previews for this week's season finale that they were heading to the DR, where the Jetplanes had their honeymoon. And I saw that they were going zip lining, well if they are in Punta Cana there's only one place they could go, the same place we went. And let me say, they made it look a lot cooler than it was...
First things first.... We went in the pouring rain... and when I say pouring rain, I have never experienced doing any kind of activity for this long in an absolute downpour like this was. You can't really tell in the pictures, but it made us go faster so Mr. Jetplane loved that. We weren't really going through the "rain forests of the DR". It's pretty much up a large hillside with trees, it was fun and worth the money, but I wouldn't do it again there.
Here I am looking... very special... preparing for our trip... yes someone only had a sports bra and a white vneck hanes t-shirt to wear. First, I wasn't going to ruin a good t-shirt and 2nd well, I'm just stupid.

They served horrible coffee in 'tiny' cups... here's Mr. Jetplane enjoying some.

But the real experience was the trek up to the zip lining place. Its remote and uphill, and isn't on a real road. And with the rain, it made it even more difficult. It was down right scary at some points. I'm not joking... The drive was the adventure.
But we had a great time and when we came back to the hotel. They had drawn a bath for us in our huge tub with bubbles, rose petals, etc. I had never wanted to submerge myself in a tub of hot water more. It was the only day it rained on our honeymoon, which was great, and the resort really tried to make everyone feel great, since the cable was out as well. What are honeymooners to do with no cable and no beach... mmm... mmm... I wonder.
One other thing... We stayed at the Excellence Club in Punta Cana... was anyone else totally shocked to find a porn channel on their TV. Mr. Jetplane wasn't. And is this normal for adults only resorts? Just wondering...
Happy Monday.

I wanted to go zip lining on our honeymoon so bad!
At our adult-only resort we only had one channel in English and it pretty much played repeats of Two and a Half Men 24/7. Anytime I see that show on TV it reminds me of our honeymoon.

Oh my gosh sooooo much fun!!!! I really really want to go someday but I am terrified of heights hahaha.

And yes, it is totally appropriate to say "suck it" now that Easter has passed. I seriously peed my pants reading your comment this morning!!

I admit, I watch Rock of Love also...all seasons so far. But I am done now. I have vowed not to watch anymore. (I wanted Mindy to win so I'm a little bitter).

Anyways...your zip line trip looked like fun! We wanted to do that on our honeymoon too but decided on deap sea fishing instead (yeah, you know who picked that one). Your lucky though, it rained 6 days of our honeymoon.

We zip lined on our honeymoon too. It was so cool. We were in Belize though. It was really beautiful, however, Belize was really scary!
