My week in the Dominican Republic was amazing. Spending time with my classmates and professors, and seeing another culture was an experience I will always remember. The Dominican people are so humble and happy, and always welcomed us with open arms and fresh fruit (fresh pineapple is amazing, by the way). This trip taught me so much about myself, life, my professional goals, and so much more.
However, travel always comes with the chance of catching the travel bug, and not the kind that makes you want to travel more! Between the diet differences, lack of sleep, all of our activities, and spending lots of time on airplanes and in airports, I came back with a nasty, flu-like bug. I don’t think it was a full-fledged flu, but it definitely wasn’t fun. Everything from the week caught up with me in the end, as it usually does.
