We flew from Richmond to Philadelphia and then on to the Dominican. In total it was about 4.5 hours of travel. The airport we flew into was not air conditioned, but had "Big Ass Fans" so it was not so bad while waiting in line for about 30 minutes for customs. (And seriously the brand of fans is called Big Ass Fans. I should have snapped a picture, but I was a bad blogger!) We then had hotel transportation waiting to whisk us away to our resort. It was only about a 30 minute ride to the hotel and then it was vacation time! Just one quick note, when entering DR, you have to have $10.00 USD cash for a tourist card. It doesn't really do anything, as it's just like a tax we pay, but some passengers were scrambling to pull out cash. And when leaving DR, I guess depending on the time of year, you need to leave your hotel so that you have at least 3 hours at the airport before your flight. That might sound excessive but we needed every minute. Leaving the country took way longer than entering. We waited in line to get checked in and to check our bags for probably 40 minutes and then spent another 40 minutes in line to get through customs.
Hope you enjoy my vlog of our trip. Please excuse the shakiness and how awful I look at the very end of the vlog. This girl was up early and was exhausted! And at the very end of the vlog I added in some pictures, so I hope you make it through to see those. By the way, the very last photo is my signature face and it's just us reppin VA! :-)
Sadly, there will be no haul video for me to post. There were some shops but they were ridiculously expensive so all I did buy was a marble turtle (weird but totally my thing) and a CD from the pool DJ.
Thanks for watching!!! Please let us know if you would like to see more vlogs even if they are just around town.
P.S. We are going to film a video soon to answer some questions we have received. It's a little "Q&A with @HerLateNightCra". Aren't we clever using our Twitter handle in the title? But seriously, let us know if you have anything you'd like to know!
