Apartment Tour in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic | What's the Cost of Living? [CC]
 
07:49
Hey! I wanted to do an apartment tour of my home here in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic. I am an American expat living here in the country for just over a year now. I have only lived in this apartment for about a month now, but so far it has been good! I show you what a typical apartment in the Dominican Republic looks like. I am paying way more here than I was in Jarabacoa, but I am in a more popular city, in a safe neighborhood, and close to grocery stores, gyms, el monumento, and more. Also, furnished apartments are much more expensive here! Wondering what the cost of living/rent/bills are like in the Dominican Republic? I talk about all of that towards the end of this video:) Any questions about cost of living or my place? Want to share what you are paying living abroad? Comment below!

My name is Mills and I moved from New York to the Dominican Republic in July 2017:) I just started this channel to document my experiences living abroad and as an expat overseas, and would love for you to subscribe to follow my journey!

Living Abroad in the Dominican Republic as an American | THE EXPAT TAG! [CC]
 
09:03
What is it like living in the Dominican Republic as an American? I moved to the DR from the United States as a single female and wanted to make a video answering the "expat tag" questions after one year of being abroad. I am so interested in expat life in other countries, and am now documenting my own time in the Dominican Republic! Life abroad and moving overseas is an experience full of ups and downs, and I would love to hear about your own adventures as well! I got these questions from both: Charlotte Ryan https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgeVIcvHtez-AZcHFgs1A9g Wine and Rum https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCf1uAv-WmrEOQSepC7W036w If this is the first video of mine you're watching: Hi!

Day trip to one of my favorite beaches! Cabarete, Dominican Republic
 
04:45
I'm a genius and realized that I didn't have a memory card in my camera right when we arrived at the beach, so this is filmed on my iphone X. I LOVE Cabarete! It's about 20 minutes away from Sosua and close to Puerto Plata. I visited with some friends a week or so ago, and put together a quick video showing off what the beach here looks like. It is a super popular place for water sports like kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing, snorkeling, and more! There are a ton of great restaurants and cute little stores along the beach, mostly aimed at tourists. There are also many people walking up and down the beach offering souvenirs, massages, hair braiding, and food! Luckily, Cabarete is only about 2 hours from Santiago de los Caballeros, where I live, so it does not take too long to get there (especially if you have a fast driver haha) There are a lot of cheap hotels and hostels as well, and cool waterfalls and outdoor excursion companies offering awesome trips nearby.

A Day in Jarabacoa / Santiago, Dominican Republic | American Expat Life
 
09:07
I put together this video while I made a very quick trip back to Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic, from Santiago de los Caballeros. I wanted to film a bit of the roads and driving up the mountain to Jarabacoa, a restaurant, and a couple visits with my friends that I taught abroad with. I also got to visit my friend's house in the campo that was beyond relaxing. Her adorable granddaughter will be starting school and is excited to learn English! Jarabacoa is a city located in the mountains of Republica Dominicana, and has waterfalls, rivers, farms, agriculture industries, and great tourist attractions, from horseback riding, to cycling, to white water river rafting. It's a beautiful place to be and is a very popular weekend destination. I hope you enjoy this quick vlog of my day. I sped up the driving parts, I wasn't speeding! Has anyone else been to Jarabacoa? If not, what is your favorite city in the DR? -- Instagram: @rebeccamillsss -- If this is the first video of mine you're watching: Hi!

Hey! A few of you had requested more information on my online jobs and how I live as a digital nomad. Sorry it is a bit long, I wanted to cover as much as possible. In this video, I explain how I work remotely online while living and traveling abroad, some ideas on how to build your own online business, and several websites that I use, and have used in the past, to help me work completely online.

Accident: Couple Missing in the Dominican Republic // What happened to Portia and Orlando?
 
12:56
I was asked to do this video by a few people to raise awareness for this couple. Portia Ravanelle and Orlando Moore, have been missing since March 27, when they left Samana to get a flight back to New York at 2am in Santo Domingo. Their family has not hear from them since, and these are the details I know up until this point. I will go live later on with more information as it is currently coming out with a lot of information. My heart breaks for them and their friends and family who are desperately searching for them. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-47869828 https://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2019/04/09/new-york-couple-missing-dominican-republic-flores-mxp-vpx.hln https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/new-york-couple-missing-12-days-didn-t-return-dominican-n992031 Instagram: @rebeccamillsss #dominicanrepublic #expatlife #santodomingo

24:44
Finallly I have put together this video running down some of the average costs of living in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic. This is more specific to Santiago, as it can vary a lot throughout the DR. I tried to touch on visa requirements and how to work in the DR as well. I hope this list will help you get a better idea of average costs of living for things like restaurants, haircuts, clothes, groceries, transportation, rent and more in Santiago, or the DR in general!

Found in a suitcase... THE TRAGIC MURDER OF EMELY PEGUERO // Dominican Republic
 
34:24
Thank you for watching!! As promised in the last video, I wanted to talk about the case of 16 year old Emely Peguero, which happened last august. This happened just a month after I moved to the Dominican Republic, so I followed the case closely, and it was so viral on social media. I really wanted to share this story because I think Emely's story is a very important one and sheds some light on big issues of femicide among others. This tragedy really rocked the country and hit international news, but it wasn't massive in the United States. I mean no disrespect to anyone that I speak about in the video, and hope that I did a good job presenting all of the facts. I spent a ton of time researching this case to ensure that I had the foundation of the story correctly, so I hope that I did the story justice. I would love to hear your thoughts about this case and what you knew/think about it.

CASA DE CAMPO villa tour! // Dominican Republic luxury resort🌴
 
04:08
Can I pleaseeee move into Casa de Campo?! My parents came for a visit from Arizona (!!!) and we went to casa de campo in La Romana, Dominican Republic for 3 nights. It was so amazing! Once I heard Drake visits, I was ready to make it my permanent home. Jkkk but seriously we had the best time, and there is so much to do on the resort. We rented a house/villa for our time, and it was so cute! It was definitely one of the smaller houses on the 7,000 acre all-inclusive resort, but that's good because we're not millionaires haha. I will be putting another video together showing the resort and amenities, day trips and activities we did, beach, restaurants, etc. It was a beautiful time and I am so glad that I finally got to check it out! highlyyyy recommend a visit here.

Walking the Streets of the Dominican Republic | Expat Life in Santiago
 
05:23
In this video I am walking around downtown (centro) Santiago de los Caballeros in the Dominican Republic! It is just a quick video I put together to help show you what the city of Santiago looks like. This is the most populated area of the city, (2nd largest in the country) and has lots of mom and pop stores, with a few chains like McDonalds and Subway sprinkled in! It's filled with cars, taxis, public buses, and motorcycles. I always love getting out and walking around new cities, to really get a feel for daily life of the residents there. This is not my favorite part of the country, but just about 10 minutes from where I live currently. I also take you to El Monumento (The Monument) which is right in downtown Sanitago and a very popular tourist destination! On clear days, you can overlook the whole city, or climb up to the top of the tour for an even better view! I hope you enjoy this city tour. Sorry for the shakiness....I really thought I was holding the camera super steady...nope! Who has been to Santiago before, or the DR (Republica Dominicana) in general?

Dominican mom teaches me how to make mangu! | Expat life
 
06:41
*Sorry the lighting is a bit yellow! It's the lighting in my kitchen. Also, we're speaking some spanish but I repeat most of it in english! My friend Chela visted me in Santiago! She lives in Jarabacoa and we met at the school I used to teach in. She immediately made me feel welcome in a place that I did not know well, and helped me adjust to life abroad and make each day at school better. She is my Dominican mom💛She ended up cleaning some of my apartment, there's no telling her no! hahah. She also taught me how to make mangu...pretty easy but I've never done it before, as well as porkchops (chuleta) Domincan's use a lot of plantains and meats in their cooking, so it's good that a learn a classic. It's so funny living abroad and having to learn things that are so easy for people here. I love learning more about other peoples' cultures, foods, lifestyles, etc. It's also so interesting to me that because the Dominican Republic is so small and family focused, many people use the exact same methods for cooking, cleaning, dressing, etc. I'm pretty sure everyone I have cooked with here teaches me the same way (more or less).

HABITS I PICKED UP LIVING IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC! // American Expat Life
 
15:49
Hope you're having an awesome Friday! I am back in Santiago de los Caballeros, after a month in Arizona. I wanted to put together some of the habits that I have found myself pick up after living in the Dominican Republic for about a year and a half now. These are little things that I do alllll the time now, even when I am back in the United States visiting! I guess I'm turning a bit Dominican! hahah, I know I forgot a bunch of them, but here are the first ones that came to mind...otherwise I would be rambling for an hour. It's so interesting to me how quickly people can adapt to other cultures and pick up these little habits and customs.. and how unique each one is! What did I miss? What changed when you moved somewhere?

5 things I DON’T like about living in the Dominican Republic...
 
11:15
Hey! I've been getting some questions about what I DON'T like about living in the Dominican Republic, so I figured I would make a list of my top 5 things I hate since I've gotten some questions about that. This is not a hate video or anything like that, but like everywhere, thre are definitely pros and cons of living here. For me, there are more pros, but not everything is perfect. I want to be transparent on my channel and show everyone the good (and bad) of living abroad. If you are considering a move to the DR, maybe this will help you out a bit. Everyone has likes and dislikes, but these are common complaints I even hear from Dominicans. I have adapted to all of the things I list, so while they still definitely annoy me, they are not unexpected haha. What are some of the things you dislike about where you are living? Let me know!

La Aurora cigar factory tour // Expat life in the Dominican Republic
 
10:17
THIS WAS SO COOL! I went on a tour on of the La Aurora Cigar Factory the other day and I did not think we would be on a private tour and be able to go right up to everyone, behind the scenes, and see the process of making cigars from start to finish. Our tour guide, Eugene was such a character, as you can see! I didn't want to include music in this video so that you can hear some of the things he was saying about the process of how they make the cigars in the factory. They even gave us one to sample. I highly suggest going on this tour if you are near Santiago! It was completely free, and they have a shop at the end to buy cigars, rum, coffee, etc. Any questions about the tour or process, comment below!

Driving in the Dominican Republic | My car got towed 👎
 
06:11
Hey! Here is another look at what it is like to drive in the Dominican Republic, specifically Santiago de los Caballeros where I live (and some more Spanish!) Like I've said before, driving here is insaneeee. My car got towed from outside my apartment, and now I know never to have my tire on the curb again haha. It's also a good look into how things work here in terms of government offices and how nothing is streamlined-there's always somewhere else you have to go or someone else to get handed off to. Of course, it wasn't a super big deal because I was able to get my car back the next day, but I had to pay. Alsooooo... don't make fun of my spanish😂 I like sharing my various experiences of life abroad as an american expat, what it's like to live abroad, and how there's always pros and cons!

Why don't Americans speak 2 languages...?? [CC]
 
06:47
Hey! Ever since I have been living in the Dominican Republic, I often think about how I SO wish that I was fluent in spanish from a young age. Many people I meet here speak 2 languages, and I think it's awesome! I wanted to share my thoughts on the lack of language classes that I experienced growing up in the United States, and WHY I think most American's are not bilingual. This is not meant to judge anyone for NOT speaking more than one language, just my observations and some statistics about this issue. I can't believe that only 1% of people in the states are proficient in a language that they learned in a classroom setting...what?!! I know that lots of Americans do in fact speak more than one language, so I am not trying to say that no one can, etc. I discuss some statistics I found while researching this video, and wanted to share them with you. I think it is so interesting that people in Europe, Asia, etc, are often required to learn (fluently) another language, but it does not seem to be as vital in the United States, maybe Canada as well? I would love to hear what you think and what your experience was like growing up-were you exposed to more than one language? Do you think it is helpful to speak 3 (or more) languages? I also hate to see videos like the clips i included where people are discouraging, and being super racist in the process, when encountering people speaking different languages in the U.S. The tripod I use: https://amzn.to/2N21cn8 Sony Alpha A6000 camera: https://amzn.to/2NmmOLh Instagram: @rebeccamillsss -- If this is the first video of mine you're watching: Hi!

Cabarete, Dominican Republic Beach Vlog // Expat life in the DR!
 
13:54
Sorry for the delay with posting! Chris and I went to Cabarete on the north coast of the dominican republic! It's one of my favorite places in the DR, and is a very popular tourist destination. It's insanely sports like kite surfing, wind boarding, surfing, etc. We took Caribe tours from Santiago, and then took Metro Tours on the way back. It has a bunch of great bars and restaurants, and lots of excursions if you like that too! It was such a relaxing weekend and I feel so lucky to get to have these beautiful times in such an amazing place. I got a terrible sunburn buttt it was worth it. If you have any questions about Cabarete, let me know.

Best food spots in Santiago | Walking tour of Dominican neighborhood

BUT SERIOUSLY WHO ELSE DOES THE ONION THING?! I didn't want to walk around with my Sony camera, so I filmed this one my IphoneX again. This is just some footage from a walk around my neighborhood here in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic. You can check out what some of the houses look like here..we pass through Villa Olga. Also, I show you my favorite spot for smoothies, salads, healthy food, etc. which is a placed called Squeezed! I also got empanadas, quipes, and bolas de yucca at my favorite Dominican street food stand. Seriously..if you're here you have to try this place! Alsooooo there was an earthquake late this night! It was a magnitude of 5.2, but the epicenter was about an hour and a half away, so it was just shaking near us. Still, kind of scary to go to sleep after that!

How I Learned to Speak Spanish! // Expat in the Dominican Republic
 
10:59
I'm sorry the quality looks poor! I think it was because my camera was so full on memory. I keep getting some questions about how I learned to speak spanish, so here is the run down! I am definitely not fluent yet, but have improved a ton since I graduated college. Unfortunately most of my learning did not come from school, but from practicing spanish with friends, (sometimes in exchange for helping them with english) and just from living in the dominican republic. It has been awesome learning this language, and I think it is so beautiful. The part that I struggle with the most is the million forms of past tense 😂 #grammar Here are some of the tools that I used to help me: https://www.duolingo.com/ https://www.memrise.com/ https://www.italki.com/home https://www.babbel.com/learn-spanish http://www.spanishdict.com/learn The resources above really helped me with grammar and vocabulary, as well as practicing everyday conversations with native speakers.

Living Abroad is HARD
 
05:20
I hope you enjoy that MASSIVE MOTH in the beginning....I wanted to share that life abroad is not always a fun, easy adventure. In fact, living abroad or moving overseas is HARD! Even after living in the Dominican Republic for over a year now, I still have hard days where I just want to be near my friends and family in the US. I wanted to have an honest discussion/pep talk about what it's like living abroad and that some days are harder than others! I am still super grateful that I am able to live abroad of course, but I wanted to share that this is how I feel some days as well-and that's okay. For those of you who also live abroad and are expats- How do you deal with the days you feel homesick and wish you were back near your families?

Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic Nightlife // Expat life in Santiago
 
03:01
Sorry everyone..the other video had some blank spots so I had to re-upload, love for you to check it out again! Happy Saturday! I wanted to put together this quick video about some nightlife in santiago de los caballeros, dominican republic. There are some great options, whether you're into clubs, bars, or restaurants. I never really film at night when I'm out, but I do love to go to chill places where I can sit and talk with friends. Victoria's in central santiago is one we go to a lot! They have live music sometimes and it's great. I don't really like clubs anymore myself, and probably wouldnt be able to film well in one, so hopefully this little bit is interesting! This little alley in Santiago is so cute and has several bars/restaurants/coffee shop and this art gallery where they had the music and dancing! It's not typical music you hear out in the DR, but I loved it. I am so lucky to have been able to explore with friends while living in the dominican republic. And lucky for you, I didn't talk in this video! hahaha Instagram: @rebeccamillsss -- If this is the first video of mine you're watching: Hi!

Isla Catalina, Casa de Campo vacation // Life in the Dominican Republic
 
10:09
Casa de Campo is a beautiful luxury resort in La, Romana, Dominican Republic. We stayed 3 nights there during my parent's visit and it was such an amazing time! One of the highlights was a day trip to Isla Catalina, a very small island about 15 minutes from casa de campo. This video is a vlog style compilation of the whole trip and all of the activities, amazing food, and family time I got to have! I really feel so lucky that my parents were able to come visit me here in the DR. Casa de campo had everything you could want in a vacation, and i highly recommend visiting. A great part was that it was super accessible for my dad. It was a great trip and a highlight of my life here in the dominican republic.

Sirui 3T-35K Tripod Review | Sony Alpha A6000 Vlog
 
05:08
To purchase this tripod, click here! https://amzn.to/2N21cn8 Looking for a new tripod? I wanted to do an unboxing/test of my new Sirui 3T-35K Tripod for my Sony Alpha A6000 camera, which I use for all of my videos! I was using another tripod, but was unhappy with it and decided to test out Siuri based on seeing some very positive reviews. The price is a bit high, but It's super lightweight, portable, and has various folding/standing options. I needed one that can be used as a monopod to vlog and a tripod, so this one was perfect. Even better, I could get the smallest size, which still allows me to vlog with my sony alpha a6000. I wanted an option that I can film both inside, steady shots and while walking around or vlogging outside too. So far, it seems like a much better alternative to what I was using!

Pros and Cons of Teaching Abroad // Dominican Republic [CC]
 
15:29
Who else has/or is currently teaching abroad?! I wanted to give an overview of my general pros and cons of teaching abroad in the dominican republic. I spent one year teaching 4th grade in Jarabacoa, and they were lots or pros, and lots of cons. It was such a scary decision for me to decide to leave New York and move overseas to teach, but I am really glad that I did. Expat life is definitely interesting, and learning more about being a teacher overseas was a real growing experience. Let me know below your experience teaching abroad too!

Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic // Speaking spanish with my Dominican family!
 
13:38
Heyyy guys! First, my disclaimer! I'm not 100% fluent in spanish so go easy on me! hahah. If you've seen some of my other videos, you know that i LOVE jarabacoa! I think it is one of the best cities in the dominican republic, and i feel really lucky that i got to live there for a year. I went for a quick visit for a few hours to visit my friend and her new baby, and to see Chela (from the mangu video, aka my dominican mom!) and her adorable granddaughter Briana, who I adore. She is so special and sassy, and so much fun to talk to! I took the guagua, or public bus from Santiago, transferred in La Vega, and it brings you right to Jarabacoa. Each bus is about $2 dollars or 100 pesos. I noticed a few new places, like one coffee shop with adorable umbrellas and old fashioned bikes to ride, and a food truck place with a few different trucks-it looks like a lot of fun! Jarabacoa has so much to offer, its so peaceful and has beautiful mountains, waterfalls, and rivers. If you haven't visited yet, you need to check it out!

How to work from home!  // Tips for Efficiency
 
08:25
Hey! I put up a video a few weeks ago about how to find online jobs, high paying clients, and pitching. This video covers some of the tips and tricks that I use to stay focused, productive, and motivated while working from home / remotely. I think a big struggle of freelancers and those who work remotely is staying on task and creating a schedule that makes sense for them! Once you have an online job, you should definitely try out some of these tips to help you get more done and not feel overwhelmed with work. Having a work/life balance is so important, which can be hard when you never get to "leave" work. Hopefully some of these tips are helpful to you, so you can be more productive, and in the end make more money online!

Moto tour around Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic // american  expat life
 
20:02
I went to Jarabacoa last weekend, and decided to film while i was on a moto ride with my friend! We drove alllll through the town of Jarabacoa, so this will give you a great idea of what its like. It is soo peaceful, and i absolutely loved living right amongst the mountains, rivers, and waterfalls. They call it "the city of eternal spring" because the climate is so beautiful! This is a great intro to Jarabacoa if you are planning a visit or a move. If you live or visit the DR and have never been, please add it to your list! I feel so lucky that I got to live in such a beautiful place for a year, while I was teaching abroad. I hope you like the music in this one too!

Let’s talk...
 
05:31
Just wanted to clarify a couple of things. I am not hating on Sosua or any race or culture in my last true crime video. It seems to be getting much more hate, and I know everything is alleged as of now. I was asked to cover it, so I did the best I could. I did get locals opinions as well, but will be more careful clarifying in future videos. thanks to those that support me and know my intentions are always pure, and i’m sorry to those I may have offended in any way.

Female Solo Travel Trips // What you need to know
 
12:27
Is it safe to travel alone? I wanted to share some of my tips for females to stay safe and protected while traveling alone! I moved to the Dominican Republic from New York as a single female, and quickly learned some helpful tips to make sure that I was/am as safe as possible. Traveling is such an amazing and freeing experience for those privileged enough to do so, but it's super important to make sure you are being smart and as safe as possible, both men and women.These tips can be applied to any country you visit or move to, and I hope there is some helpful advice in here for you! This is pretty much all of the things I do in the year I have been living abroad as an expat. Don't get weary of traveling alone, it is an amazing experience, and these things can happen near and far from home. It's just better to think about the what ifs beforehand!

Top Things I Miss From America! // Expat Life in the Dominican Republic
 
15:09
Happy Wednesdayyy! PS why is the audio and video the worst quality ever? I'll get there someday haha. Here's a list of some of the things I miss from the United States when I am in the Dominican Republic for a while! I usually get lots of questions about what I miss the most from the U.S., and here they are. I probably missed a bunch of them, but these are the ones that came to my mind fastest. Of course, this doesn't mean the DR isn't awesome or that there aren't things here that I miss when I am in the states. I think expat life always comes with some things you miss from home, just because you're used to things that way. What do you miss most from your home state/country? Even when I'm in AZ, I miss things from NY-like bacon egg and cheeses! hahaha. Instagram: @rebeccamillsss -- If this is the first video of mine you're watching: Hi!

DOMINICAN VS. MEXICAN CANDY TASTE TEST ...(NOT what we expected)
 
19:19
If you couldn't tell by my voice, I was sick while filming this, so sorry about that! I grabbed some Mexican candy and snacks while I was in Arizona, and the Dominican candy from here in Santiago. Alyssa and I had not tried most of these things, so decided to try them out together! The Mexican candy was very interesting, and spicier than I was expecting! I ended up getting a lot of coconut Dominican candy. I couldnt buy everything, so of course this is not an all inclusive video. I'm kinda bummed I didn't like more of it, but it was super fun trying them all out! I would love to hear which Mexican or Dominican snacks are your favorites! Which did I miss?

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann-Netflix Documentary Reaction
 
08:08
quick reaction/review of the new docuseries on netflix about the disappearance and investigation of Madeleine McCann. I have been so interested in this case forever as have so many people and I think this doc does a pretty good job reviewing everything we know to date. I learned a fair amount of new details as well. I wish that there were more answers, and grieve for Maddie every time I think about this case. If you’re interested in true crime, I think this is a worthwhile doc to watch for a detailed, mostly objective review.

Playa Ensenada, Cayo Arena, Dominican Republic Beach Vlog! // Expat life in DR
 
09:03
Hope you're all having an awesome weekend! Last Sunday my friend invited me on a group excursion and it was so much fun! We left from Square One Restaurant in Santiago de los Caballeros, and took a private guagua to Playa Ensenada, which took about 2 hours there and 3 on the way home because it was at night! We went on a boat to a natural pool, swam, went to Cayo Arena, had fruit and snorkeled and saw SO MANY FISH! It was soooo pretty seriously, such a beautiful time. There is also a swamp kind of thing nearby we went through, and then had Dominican lunch! I love getting to see more beautiful places around the Dominican Republic. FOLLOW MY IG TO TALK MORE!

How To Make Tostones! (and a complete Dominican cooking FAIL!)
 
05:19
Heyyyyy everyone! I hope you're all have awesome weeks. This was filmed while I was still visiting my family in Arizona, but now I am back in the Dominican Republic! While we were home, my parents wanted my fiance and I to cook Dominican food for them...just the basics, chicken, beans, and rice (arroz con pollo y habichuelas) and it was an EPIC FAIL. Literal humiliation hahaha, luckily...we redeemed ourselves with the next go around with my mom doing most of the heavy lifting because we clearly are miserable at cooking. Luckily the one thing we can handle is making tostones! So I threw some of those steps up as well. Happy to be back in Santiago!

Dominican woman killed in Sosua...What happened to Yonay Rosario?
 
22:37
I think I was mispronouncing Yonay's name, so I am so sorry about that! It was spelt differently in most of the reports I found. I wanted to cover this case as it did not get as much international exposure as the Emely Peguero case, and think that it sheds light on more of the issues of femicide in the country. This happened in Sosua, Dominican Republic in early November 2018, so it is still developing and the accused has not been sentenced yet. I hope that I accurately described the facts of this case, but feel free to add any additions in the comments! And as always this is no disrespect to anyone, the Dominican culture, people, anything! I was asked to cover this case by a few people, so I hope that I did Yonay justice.

Sedona Engagement Shoot & Roadtrip

Last week I went to Sedona, Arizona, San Diego, Coronado and La Jolla, and filmed just a bit to share with you all! While in Sedona, my fiance and I did our engagement shoot with our friend, who takes awesome photos (@wixwaxphoto) and then we went to San Diego where the highlight of the trip was seeing the SEALS! They were more adorable than I can even describe and it was so incredible to just watch them for a couple of hours in the CA sunset. Sedona and San Diego are two gorgeous places and I highly recommend visiting both of them if you get a chance. The red rocks (mountains) of Sedona are absolutely stunning, and I feel so at peace when I am there. I am heading back to the Dominican Republic tomorrow too, so more videos are on their way!

Sooooo I'm in Samana for Semana Santa, and since it'll be a couple days before I upload a video, I wanted to post this for you! My 2 best friends and I came on a trip to the Dominican Republic in July 2016, one year before I moved here! Alessia put together this amazing video which shows just a glimpse of our amazing time here. She is clearly a far superior editor than i am! hahaha. I seriously watch this video all of the time because it just makes me so happy. We came into Santiago, then spent time in Jarabacoa and Cabarete. It was truly such a blessing to be with my two best friends in such a beautiful place, and we had amazing moments. We met incredible locals who treated us like family, like cooking for us with no lights or running water. I could go on and on, but I wanted to share this with all of you, this is pretty much the trip where I decided I wanted to move to the DR and teach! Enjoy!
