MicroAdventure: Bikes, Birds and Plaza España

May 9, 2016

Last weekend was a long weekend in the Dominican Republic to celebrate May Day.* Many of our friends went away but we opted to stay in Santo Domingo and chill out since (I’m not complaining, but…) we’ve done quite a bit of traveling and weekends away this year. A little staycation was exactly what we needed. We had a delicious bagel breakfast with friends, a yummy lox and mimosas brunch at home, watched movies, drank wine, and took a stroll around Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone, specifically Plaza España. It’s a family favorite and something we don’t do nearly enough when we take the kids’ bikes and scooters and choose a restaurant overlooking the plaza. We order food and drinks and while we wait the kids explore, run, and roll.

What’s a favorite family trip you take?
