Hello, everyone, my name is Evan. I’m 20 years old and I’m from Wisconsin. Back in March, I took the DR Escapes tour, and I want to give a brief testimonial of my time there. Previously, I had never been outside the country and was not well traveled. So, the idea of traveling to the Dominican to meet Barry, whom I’d never met, was somewhat intimidating, to say the least. However, I did have the testimony of my parents who had taken the Tour in December 2013.
Being well aware of the political climate of my country, Barry’s videos and articles convinced me of the advantages of having an escape route. After visiting and witnessing the DR firsthand, I now wish to make it my place of residence. I’ve read the other testimonials on Barry’s website, and can attest to the claims of the Dominican’s beauty, tranquility, wonderful climate, and it’s welcoming people. However, I would like to focus on my time spent with Barry, and his mission in his community. My interests are in farming, agriculture, and a simple lifestyle. Therefore, during the tour, Barry made a point to tailor our tour to explore those options. I learned from Barry the value of a second language, the importance of being proactive in every area of life, and that to succeed all I need are the connections I already have. I’m sure Barry would be surprised how much this trip impacted my life.
For anyone who is considering taking a tour of the DR, even if you discover it is not the right place for you, it will be an unforgettable experience. It’s true, the DR is not the only option for strategic relocation. However, what impressed me was the fact that Barry is committed to providing this service for anyone who is willing to take action for the sake of themselves and their family. When this opportunity is no longer available, you may wish you would have taken advantage of it.
Thanks again, Barry and Liane, for all that you have done for me.
