We didn't let the media stories and worried texts from from family and friends prevent us from enjoying our trip
We stayed at the Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus in Bayahibe. The resort was beautiful and the people were so friendly. We've been to several different Caribbean islands and the Dominicans were by far the friendliest. The beaches and water were more beautiful than any other island we've seen. I see why so many people go to the Dominican.

The grounds and decor are stunning. We were in awe of the beauty of the resort

We had a wonderful time and never felt unsafe. I really hope the DR is not affected negatively by the recent events. Many of the hardworking people depend on tourism to survive and would never hurt any tourist.
On a different note... I bought a new Mac computer! After being without a computer for over a year (or two), I can look forward to blogging again... Using a phone to blog is no fun.
