Dominican Republic

21st of December 2011 – 5th of January 2012

My first trip to the continent North America in the Caribbean; I went therefore spending the Christmas and New Year in swimming clothes on the beach and landed in Santa Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic 13 hours delayed because of bad weather in Frankfurt. I drove by bus to my Hotel in Punta Cana and spent the most time on the white sand beaches in my huge hotel resort.

On a catamaran with reggae music in hammocks to Isla Saona, was definitly the highlight. One night I went out of the hotel resort to a fish restaurant, Captain Cook, where you got the freshly prepared fish on your plate. In the middle of the restaurant was a guy sitting with gun, if the fish is not dead enough.
