A few more words must be said about the Dominican Republic, seeing as I have finally unearthed the handful of photos I took during the trip with my brother’s waterproof point-and-shoot. Although I don’t exactly thrive in hot places, was it ever an awesome time. I had always wanted to travel with Reid, and this trip fulfilled every adventurous bit of that dream. If there’s anything to be learned from my experiences in Brazil and the Dominican Republic, it’s that tropical vacations are at their absolute best when approached with the spontaneous attitude that comes with student travel, especially with good friends!
