One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.

Exploring jungle trails in the Dominican Republic is unpredictable. Some trails end up at a scenic beach--it feels like you just discovered it--some trails go to the door of a simple tin roof home; donkey out front, chickens, and skinny dogs. I suppose that’s what makes us feel alive and human; the unexpected.
