    A little fiesta

    August 1, 2020 in Dominican Republic ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    A lot happens really spontanious in this country, like a house party! 😂

    My job was to prepare the salad (which turned out to be really good)! 😉 Antonio took care of the meat on the grill, guests brought different kind of food and so we had a lot to eat! ❤️

    Kristina found a DJ who played music that night and we had so much fun eating together and then dancing together. 👯

    The neighbour kids swam in the pool and later that night, everybody was in the pool having a good time together! 😊👍

    Sam’s Gig @ Drifter Cabarete

    October 17, 2020 in Dominican Republic ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Sam, one of the managers of the “Castillo”, is also a musician and a pizza maker. 🍕

    He works at this super cute but really expensive bar close to the beach and was able to play with a friend there this Saturday. 🎶🎵🎶

    Almost the whole hostel visited and watched for some time. Mariel had to work in the hostel and couldn’t see the Gig. 🙈
    So, when I found this sweet little stand that sold Xmas cookies, I bought 2 packs and we killed them on the Couch later that evening ... 😏

    Tropical storm Isaiac ️️

    July 30, 2020 in Dominican Republic ⋅ 🌧 27 °C

    It is Hurricane season in the carribian! 🌪️

    The first one I was about to witness turned out to be "only" a tropical storm here in the Dominican, called Isaiac. I felt safe here in this building and its robust walls. However, it is sad to think of all the poorer people in their wood cabines! 😰

    In the end, there were a few death and millions left without fresh water and electrity for days! 🤷🏼‍♀️

    My Cousin from the US kept me updated with pictures of the status of the storm.
    It looks scarier as it is and even a lot of my friends and family asked me how I am after the storm, I never felt in danger! 😉👍

    The next morning, we cleaned everything in the house, while the Military took care of the outside and cleaned the streets from the wood and stones.

    Well, bye bye Isaiac and hope to NEVER see you again in my life! 🤔😊

    Arrival in Cabarete

    July 25, 2020 in Dominican Republic ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    This morning, I took the bus to drive to Cabarete, a little tourist town famous along surfers and kite-surfers, in the north of the island. The ticket cost 400 pesos and the bus had air conditioning & a tiny tv. 😂

    I was suppose to take a bus earlier but the taxi driver didn't show up, so I had to call an Uber to get to the bus terminal. 🚎

    After 3 hours I arrived in Sosua and took a taxi to the hostel in Cabarete. It is really big and nice, most of the things are new and you can see that Kristina, who runs this place, has so many ideas to better the community, but so little time and help. 😰 And now with Corona, there are more beds than guests.
    There is also a Pool and a little pug called "Jose" to get some distracting throughout the day. 🐶

    Now I only need to learn how to deal with the giants spiders ... 🕸️🕷️

    Chicken Wings Wednesday

    October 28, 2020 in Dominican Republic ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Wednesday’s is Chicken Wings Day at the Goddess Beach Club in Cabarete! 🐥

    For no more than 100 pesos, you can get a big plate with Wings, a Salad and a baked potato. 🥔

    It is a little bit to far to walk, so we usually take a Motoconcho or someone with a Pasola or Moto can pick us up and take us there.

    They also have really good Mojitos there ...

    Braids for Mariel

    October 24, 2020 in Dominican Republic ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Today Bella visited us in the “Castillo” with the Intention to braid Mariels hair. 💁🏽‍♀️

    We were expected maybe 2-3 hours for the process and Mariel bought 4 packages of plastic hair at the chinese store earlier this week. 🛒

    I made pancakes with Oreo Cookies and apples for dinner. 😋🥞

    In the end, we had so many breaks and interruptions, that Bella needed around 7 hours and 6 packages. Mariel had to text an Motoconcho to get 2 more packages, together with a coke and ice. 😄🧊

    But it was worth the time ...

    Reunion with Mariel ❤️

    August 5, 2020 in Dominican Republic ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    I was several days in Cabarete already, when Mariel arrived as well.
    She is staying at a different hostel and therefore, I don't see her all the times like in the Muffin hostel! 😰

    But today was the day of the reunion and we met at a second hand store, where I had bought some second hand cloth for this hot weather here. ❤️

    We went to the Mojito Bar at the beach, had drinks and ate a delicious dominican menu. 🤤
    Afterwards, we walked in the sand at the beach to find a perfect spot and went into the water to swim a little. 🌊
