Where do you take your two late-teens daughters on the holiday of a lifetime that gives them a bit more of a lasting life experience than a sun tan and a worn bikini?

Nancy Hurst aka Niagara Nancy, a globe trotter thanks to a decade living away from her native Canada in London, and subsidised air flights from her years working for Air Canada, decided to try something other than beaches and cocktails. So she booked a trip with a difference for daughters Summer and Senna to Spanish speaking The Dominican Republic, on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, shared with French-speaking Haiti.
