The past few months have been a whirlwind. I completed the New York bar exam, visited family in Florida, partied in New York and Puerto Rico all before embarking on the trip of a lifetime to Thailand.
After months of procrastination, I finally ended up booking a bar trip. With two of my best friends from law school, we decided on Puerto Rico since it was affordable and easy! Our cell phones and debit cards worked as they would in the states there. We stayed at the Caribe Hilton Resort (bourgeois) in San Juan and lived life to the fullest. It was not all inclusive as those are difficult to come by in San Juan, however our hotel was centrally located between Old San Juan and Condado so it made for easy travel between the areas. Despite a few hours of rain due to a tropical storm, we visited the best restaurants, clubs and beaches. It was the ultimate turn up! My favorite part of the trip had to be the 3 of us singing A Whole New World in the middle (exaggeration) of the ocean. It was absolutely perfect!
The rainforest was closed due to the weather so we are planning a trip back to explore it. Highlights of the trip were Brava Night Club, El Jibarito Reataurant and of course the myriad fantastic beaches.
Towards the end of Puerto Rico, I was feeling really sad about vacation ending. I knew that I would be starting work soon and my schedule would not be as flexible to travel as I would like. Because of this, I booked a solo trip to Thailand. Stay tuned for pt 2 of my amazing bar trip.
