This year I travelled to Toronto for my Grandmother’s 80th birthday party.  While I was there I also managed to visit the Dominican Republic.  I stayed at Ocean Blue & Sand Resort and it was quite a nice resort.  Everything was included and the room I had was very large.  I spent a week there recharging after a tough few weeks at work.  Nothing works better than sunshine, and I sure got a lot of it!  Everyday was around 40C and very sunny.

I only had one day of rain while I was there and that was because of Tropical Storm Erika, that didn’t stop the resort though, everything was moved indoors and a good time was had by all.  At night the resort had ‘house singers’ and karaoke.  I thought it’d be fun to go and watch the karaoke and have a laugh at the bad singers.  I didn’t get to laugh, everyone that sang was amazing both in English and Spanish.  I only heard one attempt at Tom Jones though and not one person sang Queen!
