You all know by now that all-inclusive resorts are not what what I like. I prefer to go to wild places, and after one day at the beach I am completely bored! But If I have a comfortable hotel, very close the a nature's park, then this is the best of both worlds! That's exactly what I had during this week! The resort is located just beside a real nature preserve!!! Send me comments if you need more information. Highlights: 1- Night walk to look for tarantulas: we saw 15 in less than 40 minutes, not far from the hotel! 2- Guided tour to a cave, (cueva del puente). We were all alone with a park ranger. Cave is full of bats and I took lots of pictures, I identified 2 species. 3- No big reef ... read more

Resumo: Mergulhar é bom D+! Recomendo! Sou sortuda: estou num lugar bacana aqui em Santo Domingo! Estou Bem! Acordei super cedo para mergulhar! Estava ansiosa, pois Bayahibe é considerado o melhor lugar da RD para isso. Hj entrei dentro de um navio naufragado. Foi a minha primeira vez nadando nos corredores de uma embarcação enferrujada. Tive vontade de chorar!!! Parece besta, mas esta primeira impressão a gente nunca esquece. Aqueles peixinhos nadando em volta, as plantinhas crescendo dentro, uma certa escuridão ... Fora do barco, Tanta Cor! Tanta Vida embaixo d’água!! Tive uma sensação maravilhosa! Amo muito!! Pena que minha câmera para isso quebrou. Queria compartilhar um pouco deste momento. =) Depois disso, o maior pinga-pinga até chegar em Santo Domingo (Capital da RD). Logo que eu cheguei liguei para o Carlos pois ficaria na casa ... read more


Though the shutters were drawn and our room was dark, there could be no doubt that it was early morning, as a cacophony of roosters competed for air time in a deafening chorus outside of our apartment. I opened my eyes, and took a second to remember where I was. I quietly rolled out of bed so as not to wake Dennie, threw on a shirt and some sandals, and snuck out into the streets of the village. The town was bathed in a golden light. A boisterous women in the small square down the street from our place began to prepare the batter at her empanada stand, just as an older man rolled a wheel burrow of oranges and pineapples towards her. Stray dogs sprawled out on the interlocking brick that paved the square, enjoying ... read more

Ah la la, on ne le dira jamais assez, que le temps passe vite ! Voilà déjà pile un mois que j’ai écrit ces dernières lignes au sujet de l’Argentine et maintenant, comme beaucoup le savent déjà, nous sommes en Suisse depuis déjà combien de temps ? 3 semaines ??? Pffffff….. Je tenais malgré tout à finir le récit de nos aventures correctement, quoiqu’en retard je vous l’accorde, mais les derniers temps ont été plein de rebondissements, ce qui a vite différé l’écriture du blog. De plus, sans Internet, pas facile de le faire. Tentons donc de reprendre l’histoire où nous l’avions laissée… Nous avons donc quitté Buenos Aires le 19 octobre, 5h30 du matin. Nos dernières images de la capitale argentine ont donc été des visions nocturnes, pleines de couleurs et d’illuminations particulières, dans cette ... read more
