          We stayed here a week. The beach is beautiful and the water warm. The resort is fine, but a little old. Great place just to relax.

          Day 9

          A travel blog entry by julieericson on Jul 23, 2015

          ... disgusting. I disinfected mine, but it still grossed me out. After we looked at all the fish up close, we had the opportunity to jump off the boat! I got some cool videos of that. I got sort of sunburnt, so a nice shower back at home base felt good after a busy day. Everyone got all dressed up, we ate dinner, then listened to a talk about how we can go further with GLA, 7 elements and the Dominican Republic. Lots of pictures were ...

          ... to the end of the home base driveway to this little shack that says "hair and nail center." I stood in line to get my cornrows and nails done. My nails are literally so cool. They are blue with flowers on every nail, and it only cost me 1 American dollar! I can't believe how expensive things in the U.S. are now that I've been here for over a week. You can get water here for 10 pesos (20 American cents) and getting your hair and nails done is a 3 dollar ...

          The back-story

          ... people think since I had just taken a huge trip (yes, I struggle with the world's opinion). We had commitments! We could serve here just as well! No money!! But no matter the argument, I could not shake the Holy Spirit. Then my dad gave my brothers and I a fairly large monetary gift, which was a total shock. Money problem solved. So I prayed, argued, tested (figuratively laid out fleece more than one time) and still felt we should go. In tears I handed in ...

          ... I had my breakfast which was perfect and the service excellent. Carlos was my server last year and he is still here which is why I like to stay at the Barceló. My friends from Germany returned as well.

          After a few hours by the hot tub, I decided to go to the beach. No sooner than I put my foot in the sand, I was bombarded by blue shirts trying to sell their wares. First, someone wanted to ...

          Homework! What?

          A travel blog entry by tiffanybowman12 on Feb 16, 2011

          ... focus on school for once was a nice break. I’m not looking forward to 18 credit hours of school on top of a 25 hour workweek, but it’s life. I’m really hesitant about leaving the girls I’ve become closest with here as well. I know we’ll be close when we get back to Ohio, but it’s never going to be like this again. We’re not going to be able to walk across the halls to each other’s room or sit out on ...
