So, if you’re looking for a teachable moment here, I will say this:

- Travel alone, but let someone know where to find you in case you suddenly stop tweeting or emailing or texting or whatever you do to communicate!

- Tell that guy (or girl) how you really feel about him (or her)!

- Make sure your friends know who is going to adopt your cat if you die suddenly in Punta Cana!

- Enjoy every sandwich.

I don’t like thinking about Bex dying, but I like that she wrote about what she thought about when she thought she was dying in Punta Cana.
