The beautiful Dominican Republic

Hi all!❤️

After a long time, I’m back again with a blogpost about the amazing Dominican Republic, where I was last April😍
Together with Godomrepbenelux and a group of 3 other bloggers, (authentic chica, Dutch blogger on the move and little wander book) and a photographer ( joyce van Galen) and what a great trip it was! 🙌🏻
I never been to the Dominican Republic, but visiting the Carribean was high on my wishlist! And I haven’t been dissapointed😊 It’s really everything you think it is and better😉 white beaches, palmtrees, blue water and colorful places! And ofcourse delicious food❤️
I Will show you the beautiful places we visited and hope (and think😉) you Will love it as much as I do!
On the first day we arrived, after a long flight with air Europa, at the DR and at 8 pm we arrived at our first stay, the amazing casa de Campo 💞 This was such a beautiful, tropical place. Very luxury and big! Even the kardasians love it here😉 That has to say something😁
We got each our own golfcars to drive around at the resort! That was so fun! Hahah
On the first day, we stayed at the resort. But we still did enough, because it’s so big! Went to the pool and the beach and at night ate delicious mexican food at la cantina. Located at Altos de Chavón, a replica of an 16 century village! Loved it! And we got a beautiful sunset also😍

I arrived back home, with 6 pounds extra and a terrible jetlag😱😂 But most of all, amazing memories and new friends❤️ The Dominican Republic surprised me in many ways! Thought it’s all about white beaches and palmtrees (which ofcourse isn’t bad also😉) but has so much more to offer! And hope that I have showed you that with my blog😊

I hoped you enjoyed reading and who knows, I inspired you to visit the beautiful Dominican Republic🌴☀️

Adios💞
