Future Tense: Puerto Rico!

I had to squeeze in this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge under the wire, because it was too appropriate a topic to miss. Because in the future (i.e. September 2013), my brother and I will be going to Puerto Rico! San Juan Pictures

This photo of San Juan is courtesy of TripAdvisor, so technically I didn’t take the photo for the weekly photo challenge. But I’ll have plenty of photos after visiting!

I’m so excited – ever since Hurricane Sandy caused chaos in the flight schedules and made me miss my planned 3 days in San Juan, I’ve been daydreaming about when I would get my chance to visit.

Since I had two free roundtrip flights on Airtran via the Airtran credit card sign up bonus, I’ve been itching to go somewhere in the Caribbean (Airtran flies to many destinations including Aruba, Jamaica, Bahamas, Bermuda, Puerto Rico, Domincan Republic, Mexico, etc). But I wanted to share the (free) wealth with someone, so I invited my brother to go along for the trip.

After much discussion of where to go, we decided on Puerto Rico due to availability of award flights on the dates we wanted (and I have to admit I steered the decision a little because I really wanted to complete my goal of visiting San Juan). So earlier this week, I booked our flights, and we’re going to San Juan around Labor Day!

Since we’ll be there for nearly a week, we have a lot more freedom in our itinerary than I did in my brief 3 day trip I planned last year. Plus we’ll be able to split costs of things like a rental car, so we’ll be able to venture outside of San Juan and see more of the rest of the island. I can’t wait!

  1. Congrats! Have you visited the forts in San Juan? I’m not interested in engineering in general, but I loved my tours. It’s right up your alley.

    • Not yet! I haven’t set foot outside of the San Juan airport yet. I’m looking forward to visiting the forts though – I’ve seen that you can take tours of the cisterns and the tunnels beneath the fort (I’m pretty excited!).

  2. wow! it’s so colorful! Can’t wait to see your puerto rico photos. =)
