Since I can remember, my family has taken the family vacations that you only see in movies and t.v. shows. Maybe it is because we always managed to covertly squeeze all six of us into a single hotel room (I didn’t realize until much later in life that other families didn’t have to “disperse” in the lobby so that hotel employees didn’t notice how many people were staying in one room), but adventures and hijinks were guaranteed any time you put all of us in a foreign locale. This is all leading up to the announcement that the family (plus significant others–except mine because Tom Hiddleston couldn’t make it–damn you Hollywood!) are going to the Dominican Republic this summer! If that wasn’t exciting enough, we are staying at an all-inclusive resort. I can’t wait to spend some much-needed time with tropical drinks…um, I mean my parents and siblings (and tropical drinks!). Between my Europe trip next week and the Dominican Republic, my year is off to great start!
Who else still goes on family vacations? What about the Dominican Republic? I have never been!
