I'm leaving.

Don't worry. Not forever! Just for a week or so.

Next Monday I'll be boarding a plane in Toronto to soar all the way down to the nice, warm, Domincan Republic. I've been super busy at work, and my wife has been working evenings/weekends, so it will be an excellent vacation for the both of us.

I've been to Cuba and Mexico, but never to the DR. My parents and parents-in-law have been, and they all say its fantastic, so I'm looking forward to it.

It will be a nice treat from the random grungy weather we've been having.

The header image, and the image below, are actually pictures from the resort we're staying at.


So my questions are: Is anyone planning on going on a winter vacation to escape the cold? If not, where do you wish you were going instead of staying home?


If you don't want to talk about this, then feel free to talk about anything else!

*Note* I will need someone to cover my Open Forum next Wednesday as I won't be available. BattleBorn will cover me next week.
