I absolutely love traveling, and when it comes to traveling to new and warm places, I freak out just a little bit. So this winter break I begged my dad to take my mom and I to the Dominican Republic; and to my delightful surprise, he said yes! So with a triumphant face and excited spirits, I packed my suitcase (a week before departure, that’s how excited I was) and was all set to leave. Half of my suitcase contained bathing suits and the other half summer clothing (what else?)
We decided to travel around the D.R by car to try to get as much as possible out of our experience. Our first stop was Santo Domingo, the capital; you could describe the city as a defined mix between a former historical civilization and modern poverty-stricken disarray. With an antique old town in the center of the city, it’s easy to stroll around and do some sightseeing, whereas the city surrounding the old town is quite chaotic.
