1. Welcome, lone traveler from Ashburn!
In my life I have been on many trips all over the world, and I am planning on travelling a lot more in the future; however the trip that was my favourite and that changed me the most was definitely the trip to the Dominican Republic. We went for four weeks and flew there.

I was only six years old when we went on this trip however it matured me and helped me grow up more than I already was, and this was for the better. The place we went to was beautiful. The staff were all very friendly. The reason this trip made such an impression on me, even at such a young age, was the fact that, even though the staff worked long hours in full uniform despite the heat, they were still so happy and so cheerful all the time.
They would help you out with anything you needed and always did it with a smile on their face. On many occasions, they would save me some chips or noodles from the night snack bar if I got back from the theatre act too late and it was closed, and on many more occasions they played games with me and one of them even taught me how to play ping pong.
It made me realise that, no matter where you are from or who you are, you should not dislike people just because they are different, or foreign etc. There is a lot of racism in life these days however, these people taught me, at six years old how wrong racism really was, and that nobody should be racist everyone should just care for each other. Despite going on at least one holiday abroad and several in England every single year, I will never have a trip like this one, and I feel that never will I meet people who will look after tourists and cater for their every need like those people did. Even when they were off shift, they would come play ping pong or cards with me. The food there was perfect, the weather was perfect, and the attractions were amazing. I would recommend a visit to the Dominican Republic for anyone who is looking for somewhere random yet life changing to go, I can guarantee they will not regret it!
I plan to go back to the Dominican Republic at some point, just to see if things are still the same. It was a long time since I went however I can't imagine it changing. I also had a friend who went there last year and had pretty much the same things to say about it. So, definitely would recommend this as it was, by far, the very best trip of my life!
