Hi everyone,
Me and my boyfriend are going on our first holiday together at Christmas to the Dominican Rep. it is also my boyfriends first ever holiday abroad.
We’ve been together 3.5 years and will be aged 18&19. Has anyone got any advice- not about COVID. We know what we need to about that.
Any advice about our trip, dos and dont’s.
Anything will be appreciated.
Thank you😚

I'm not asking you not to go since I have travelled a lot myself, but flights going ahead have little to nothing to do with safety. It's simply the reality that we can't afford to continue crashing the economy.

Governments consider many things other than the risk of transmission.

I've never been to DR but I've been to every single country on the mainland Americas and a number of island nations in the Caribbean.

DR is a very unequal society so you should watch out for the areas that have more crimes, although if you're just staying at a hotel resort or something, most likely nothing will happen to you.

I've never been nervous about flying, but you can keep him distracted if he is. He can pick a film he wants to watch or you can talk to him throughout.

There are medicines one can take prior to boarding for motion sickness as well. But in general, being able to look outside helps with motion sickness more than not looking outside. The best way to deal with it, of course, is just to sleep through it.

Stop posting all the time about this when people are talking about their holiday.

If you’re that concerned start your own thread.

It’s not that deep, life must resume, economies must get back on track, for lots of developing countries their economy depends on tourism smh

The government have made it legal to certain places, so they can do what they want as long as it’s legal and they’re happy with the risk.

Th DR people are probably buzzing tourists are returning so they can start Earning again

Go out and have fun with your boyfriend. Chances are we’ve already had Covid without even knowing about it. Not all cases show symptoms. Can’t stay indoors for the rest of our lives now. It’s either go out and risk the chance of getting Covid or stay indoors and die of depression.

Do you care about the 300,000+ people who work in tourism in DR and their family, or are you only focused on the 1,700 deaths because starving families slowly dying or killed by regular crimes aren't as eyecatching?
