Spring Break in the Dominican Republic.

Leaving Charlotte

First glimpse!

One of my favorite pictures from the trip.

Crepes on the beach were a daily occurence. 

Another crepe and an "adult beverage" (Which I was NOT a fan of)

Let me know if you want to see a full OOTD post on this look!

     My Spring Break was spent on a daddy-daughter trip to the Dominican Republic. My mom and I went to Las Vegas last June, so my dad had also been wanting to do something with me, just the two of us.

     If these pictures didn't speak loudly enough, we had an amazing time. The only thing that went wrong over the course of the whole trip was that I had a huge seasickness outburst on our snorkeling trip... but seriously, the rest of the trip was perfect! The flights were on time, customs were a breeze, it was beautiful and sunny every single day, there was a creperie right on the beach that served unlimited crepes to guests... I can go on and on!

     We were supposed to stay at the Via Whyndam Dominicus resort, but when we arrived the hotel told us that some of the rooms had an air conditioning issue so they had to close off our room, and they sent us to the neighboring all-inclusive, which was the Catalonia. The Catalonia was a great hotel, and we still had a wonderful time!! The interesting thing was that the Catalonia attracted European tourists... in our six days at the hotel we only met two American families, and the hotel was almost fully booked! Most of the guests were Italian and most hotel staff only spoke Spanish, so we had an interesting time communicating while we were there, but it worked. :-)

     Our days were spent playing in the ocean and then sunbathing by the pool, sipping tons of virgin coconut smoothies from the bar, eating lots and lots of crepes, and the nights were spent watching re-runs of The Big Bang Theory on one of the only English channels that came in at the hotel. And that was an absolutely perfect Spring Break. When can I go back?!
