Justin Goes Zip Lining, Parasailing, Encounters Dolphins and Snubaing in Labadee Haiti, Cozumel and Costa Maya Mexico

May 30, 2017

Sometimes it is just good to let your hair down. Being HIV positive doesn't mean you have to stay at home but it might mean you need to get out of bed and enjoy life. There were many times, I felt depressed when I was first diagnosed. Life is a celebration and I say live it to its fullest. I'm not a party boy or anything but I had to get footage of the parties on the Atlantis Cruise Allure of the Sea ship it was amazing. We went to Cozumel Mexico and we went Snubaing which was amazing. Then we went to Costa Maya Mexico where my husband and I did the Dolphin Encounter which was great except they wouldn't allow me to video tape it, but the experience was well worth it. The best to me was Labadee, Haiti where I zip lined and parasailed with the hubby. This vacation was needed and being a HIV-positive activist, husband, parent, etc. can be stressful, so it is important to stop and appreciate all that is around and the experience that I have.
