DR Day 11

Day 11, was our final full day in country (we flew out early the next morning). We spent the morning packing up and swimming and then our family drove back to Santiago which is where we flew in and out of.

Final swim.

Lunch at our favorite waffle place before leaving Cabarete.

Drew spiked a fever on our last day which made him a little grumpy and sleepless. Thankfully those were his only symptoms and we made it home without any issues.

Leaving the Horst family (who were incredible hosts).

We arrived in the DR at night and had to make a two hour drive through the mountains in the dark. It was terrifying (especially since there are hardly any road signs, it was raining and we weren't used to DR roads yet). Driving that same road in the daylight, after Andrew had mastered DR driving was a delight. We could not get over the views. These pictures don't even begin to capture the beauty; it was stunning.

We stayed at a hotel right by the airport because our flight was early the next morning. We swam in the pool and reacquainted ourselves with warm showers, air conditioning, etc.

We had to grab dinner by ourselves that night and landed at KFC. Santiago is so much bigger than Cabarete and we were overwhelmed and tired with decisions so we went with familiar.

So that was our trip. It was pretty amazing. We are already dreaming of our next big trip.
