Girls' Trip

Last August I visited the Dominican Republic and like with every destination I visit I try to reach out to one or more of my social media buddies from that particular place. So, I sent a message to my fellow writer at Women Who Live on Rocks (WWLOR), Jen from the hilarious Drinking the Whole Bottle, who lives in Santo Domingo to see if she wanted to meet.

A girl after my own heart Jen suggested we meet at a quaint sea side restaurant close to the Malecon not too far from where I was staying in the Zona Colonial. We clicked immediately and soon after a cold Presidente or two we started planning sh*t, our minds working in synch. “You know what would be cool? If all the writers of the WWLOR website could get together”, says one. “Yeah! like a retreat. Or better yet a RockTreat”, screams the other. And so a seed was planted.

We of course couldn’t wait to tell our fearless head island girl at the WWLOR headquarters, Chrissann about our discussion. Apparently she had been thinking about organizing the same thing for a while.

A plan was hatched. Skype calls were planned. Agendas were consulted. We decided on a suitable location and date and Chrissann ran with it, organizing everything from a place to stay to activities and margarita days. What was just a seed a mere 8 months ago blossomed into the first ever Island writer’s RockTreat.

After counting down the months and weeks I am now counting down mere days. Jeepers, how did the day get here so fast?

They are fun, they are fearless and they are traveling girls. My favorite combo.

Meet 5 of my current favorite chicks to follow on Instagram. It’s not only their incredibly captivating photos, it’s not the places they have been to (even though those are quite impressive) and it is definitely not the amount of likes or followers they have. These fearless females are everything we as women should strive to be: fearless, determined, daring and independent.

They have paved their way to their own happiness and have created beautiful, tell-all social media accounts and websites to show us all how they do it.
