10 Days in Dominica, Day Eight

Day Eight- Does your spouse like it here?

I'm pretty sure my husband is indifferent to Dominica. He doesn't hate it here, he doesn't love it here. I occasionally hear him complain about various things like the food or weather but most of the time he is too busy studying to really care. I know that he's enjoyed the few trips he's had the time to go on and also just the adventure of being here.

One of the things Chris loves about the island is the scuba diving. We really enjoyed getting certified together and going on all the different dives. He would go every week if we had the money time.

I'm glad he isn't a Dominica hater like most of the students.  I think it is silly to choose to come here and then complain about it so much.  Accept where you are, enjoy the good the island has to offer, and then appreciate America more when you go home.

Post card living. Not all like their life to be a vacation. I am happy that you chose other, Friend. I can't wait to hear your stories of reverse culture shock.
