Shari's Birthday and Whale Watching

A travel blog entry by sfrtw

This is a top pick!

For Shari's birthday, we wanted to take a 'vacation from the vacation'. So, Frank organized a weekend getaway from Cabarete. The only tough part was getting up really early on Saturday morning, 4:30am to catch our tour bus to Samana for a whale watching tour. On the way to Samana, we had a small breakfast (which made me already a little sick), and …

A travel blog entry by thepotvins


... us off to the Dominican Republic straight away the next morning.
