I’ve seen some recent photos on Facebook from some of my former colleagues, and I just have to make some general comments about Canadians and their cliché traveling habits. The Dominican Republic, albeit probably pretty, is such a horribly cliché place to go. It’s Hispanic, and the only place that you can fly to without a passport these days; thus tons of Canadians go there. In addition to that it’s cheap, and that makes it, in my eyes, really the worst place to go. If I were them I’d want to go to St Nevis, or St Kits, Guadeloupe or Martinique. At least then you can feel important going through customs and immigration with a passport. Yes that’s right you small-town Canadians without passports, I said it!
If you’ve never gone through customs (US Border Crossing doesn’t count), then you’re lame and your lameness needs to be remedied very quickly. If you haven’t gotten you passports yet, you probably should otherwise you will be stuck in small-town Canada for the rest of your life. Wait, after having written that, you don’t even need to get a passport because chances are you won’t leave anywyas. Bwahaha! I am so mean.
Anyways, bottom line I’m sick of seeing the same boring “lets get drunk and learn Spanish words for beer” photos. Cliché and quite tacky, especially considering people clearly don’t know what the hell to wear when they go on holidays. Rainbow coloured moo-moos, Hawaiian shirts an the like are unaccepted methods of dressing oneself. Learn by watching fashion shows such as Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and you will learn monumental lessons that will serve you better in the future.
Also, pick a new hoildays destination.. Mexico doesn’t count. 🙂
