Spring Break - Part I (Dominican Republic)

Ahh... finally - TIME! It's been awhile old friend and it's good to have you back!
It's been a crazy whirlwind of travel these past couple of weeks. And no matter how much I love traveling, man does it feel good to be home. 
The very first stop on my trip was Dominican Republic. DR was just what I imagined - vast expanses of sand interspersed with a palm tree or two here and there. (Although I must say beaches in Asia are still better... I'm not biased, I promise!)
We avoided the popular Spring Break destination - Punta Cana, and settled down in the more secluded Las Terrenas. There we rented out a beautiful little villa overlooking the ocean where we lazed for six long days, and did nothing but nap under the sun, swim in the pool until our fingers turned prune-y and play mafia games poolside.

DR was beautiful and it was wonderful to spend my last spring break with the people I love. But the best part of the trip was perhaps my detox from technology - no phone, no internet, no nothing. It was so refreshing to just... be.  I'm determined to isolate myself from the world at least once a month. (Although now that I'm back in the city and hyper-connected again, this seems less and less realistic. hah!) I guess that's why they call it a vacation.
