Dominica Island: Living like a local in Giraudel Village, the Flower Town.

I have always dreamed of finding the ultimate natural place to live in, a place where I could be surrounded by trees and flowers and where the sun shone all the time. It seemed just a dream, but in 2008 I met the person who is now my husband and then he invited me to visit his homeland Dominica … I was planning to stay only three months , and now I have more than eight years living in the place of my dreams.

Motorcycle Diaries.Why not start your own.

If you’ve had the chance to watch ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’ then you will understand the appeal of getting on the back of a bike and exploring a scene untouched by many others – If it’s a trip to Nepal, Cambodia, The Dominican Republic or Morocco, or maybe just exploring the local surroundings around a resort in Vanuatu. Wherever you may be, taking a voyage of adventure and self-discovery is what every traveller pursues, a chance to understand how ones-self fits into the bigger picture.

Playa Blanca beach in the Dominican Republic.

The Dominican Republic is the place where your paradise beach dreams will definitely come true, and yes, we are talking about Punta Cana, the destination you’ve always dreamed of for your vacations.

Santo Domingo: A Tale of Two Cities

Before I moved abroad to the wonderfully grey England skies, I lived 18 years in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Blue skies, warm people, and extremely warm weather. My childhood was sitting under the shade of the mango tree at my grandpa’s house, while gleefully – of course, enjoying a mango.

Dominican Republic: The Perfect Holiday Destination

I found myself living in the Paradise. Yes, in the Dominican Republic, maybe you don’t know it as the Dominican Republic but I’m pretty sure you have heard about Punta Cana. Well, we are more than that. This part of the island with a little bit less than 11 million inhabitants is the second largest Caribbean nation by area after Cuba and is ready to satisfy all your needs in this tropical vacation gateway for both locals and internationals.

Exploring the Dominican Republic: Excursion to Saona island

Let’s start at the very beginning. I have been living in the Dominican Republic for more than a year now (yes, I live where you vacation) and this is the second time that my mom visits me. I am originally from Budapest, Hungary, a beautiful European country. On my days off I always organize some trips or excursions so I can take her to different places to discover this beautiful country.

La Romana, Casa de Campo Piece of Paradise

The Dominican Republic has a reputation for being a paradise on earth thanks to its incredible beaches, vibrant culture, and seafood! For me, DR truly lived to this expectation! I had an excellent chance to experience some of the finest things Dominican Republic has to offer and may I say one of the most tranquil experiences.

Street vendors

In 2009, I was fortunate to combine work and play in the sun-swept resort of Iberostar PUNTA CANA  in the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. As a professional tennis coach, I applied for a teaching gig through a site named vacationing coaches which catered to professionals at various Caribbean resorts for a maximum two week stay. I was torn between DOMINICAN REPUBLIC and Jamaica, however, after a coin toss-up I was heading to the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC in style. Fortunately as a tennis professional all my expenses were paid albeit my flight.  My assignment was straightforward:  As the visiting tennis pro I was to teach guests ranging from beginners to advanced for two hours a day. After teaching  it was my time to not only relax but to explore the resort and beyond. I vividly remember arriving at Punta Cana International Airport back in July 2009, It had a real party atmosphere to it and upon arrival guests were met by a live band playing Merengue music which is a style of Dominican music and dance. In addition, arriving guests were welcomed by local dancers who showcased their moves to the beat of the drum.

Santo Domingo: traffic chaos and the Dominican passion

For all of you who are not completely sure what or where that is; Santo Domingo is in the capital of the second biggest island in the Caribbean, right after Cuba. The island is now officially called Hispañola, due to Peter Martyr d’Anghiera (with his apparently bad Spanish thinking it means ‘small Spain’) who changed its name from La Española – as Christopher Columbus named it in 1492. Dominican Republic is sharing the island with Haiti and as most of neighboring countries they are not precisely fond of each other.
