DC’s BigD Bash 2021

DC Vekic blog March 22, 2021

It’s that time again, we planned the 2021 trip, the only trip I am hosting personally, with a very funny name. When I first organized this trip in 2017, It started as an idea for my own personal divorce trip, but then a friend said “Don’t use the word DIVORCE, it sounds negative.” Especially because I was inviting singles and couples alike. So I thought: “Ok, no DIVORCE.. let’s make it a Big D.”
But apparently, I was the only one who had no clue what else big D meant, but since I already ordered T-shirts, we decided to go with it, and by now we are all used to it…

This year we are doing it different! With so many people with unused airline credits and miles about to expire, we are having everyone get their own airfare. We are doing resort only NOVEMBER 12 – NOVEMBER 16, 2021, and what a resort!!!!

DC’s Second Annual Big D Bash

DC Vekic blog June 21, 2017

A great event with a funny name! I was actually told people googled what Big D Bash meant, when I announced it last year, and couldn’t figure it out. Here is a few pics from our 1st DC’s Big D at the Breathless Cabo last year…

It started as an idea for my own personal divorce trip, but then a friend said “Don’t use the word DIVORCE, it sounds negative.” Especially because I was inviting singles and couples alike. So I thought: “Ok, no DIVORCE.. let’s make it a Big D.”

But apparently, I was the only one who had no clue what else big D meant, but since I already ordered T-shirts, we decided to run with it anyway, and by now we are all used to it.

My personal divorce after 17 years made me think about that first trip without your significant other. I thought it was important to create a trip where a person who just recently got divorced, would feel comfortable, and would have a built in support from their friends and family. We had couples, singles, everyone was invited as long as they were over 21! It was a last minute plan, but we had a blast.

One of the greatest reasons to pick Secrets the Vine was one of the biggest wine cellars in all of Yucatan. This resort has great food and service.
