I have never traveled outside of the United States but that is about to change!! I recently applied for and received my passport!!! This task made my list as I knew if I had my passport, I would not have any excuses to not travel! Well, I would have one less excuse as time and money are still a pretty significant factor. So, where am I going? I am going to the Dominican Republic in July to see my brother, Jeremy! He was stationed there for a 26 month journey with the Peace Corps in March 2011. Needless to say, we will not be on the fancy resort side where many take their honeymoons, but in a little community within the San Juan province in which he works as an appropriate technology developer. For anyone who is interested in reading about some of his endeavors and some of the projects he has been working on for the past year, he too has a blog that you can check out! http://jmhansen.wordpress.com/
As if traveling outside of the United States for the first time isn’t exciting enough… I will be accompanied by a great friend!! To say she is very adventurous would be an understatement! 🙂 One of my old roommates and very good friends Maria is coming with! Unlike me, Maria is not new to traveling the world. I hope my brother is prepared for us! (Jeremy- consider this your written warning) haha just kidding, but know that we both are really excited to not only see what you have been working on over the past year and the different sites within the country, but we are also SUPER excited to see you!!
Sorry no photos this time! didn’t want to post my passport for security reasons, but I am sure I will have many, many pictures after the trip!
