Cuba libre

CUBA is fascinating as an example of communism in a Caribbean setting. When talking to people before the trip, most of them loved it in a way, but said it was exhausting. There was even Rolf with a kite school, who told me that the kite school is closed and that he spends the summer

Cabarete kite mecca

Everybody told us, Cabarete is too busy, too messed up and not worth a visit. But we felt like we have to see it ourselves… The drive along the coast was flavoured with stunning views of turquoise water and endless beaches, busy villages etc. Arriving in Cabarete, we have had a great surprise, as our

Las Terrenas life

So some might wonder, what is so different from a house and pool in summer on Mallorca? And there is a lot! There is so much different, that I first had to see and digest. Where are we here?!? After one week, I love many things about Las Terrenas: Kiting: There is a very cool

Las Terrenas

The next morning we are off to Las Terrenas. It is an absolutely stunning drive through the mountains on a perfectly build highway, sponsored by Coca-Cola and Orange. We approach las Terrenas: little wooden shacks with palm leaf roofs. Bananas, passion fruits, mangos, coconuts. There is a wide range of delicious fresh fruits directly from

You’re not welcome

We are ready for our next adventure. The next surprise awaits us at the American Airlines counter. In pretty much any airport in the world that I remember you can pass through as a transiting passenger (Frankfurt, London, Dubai, Moscow, …). Not so in the US as we learned. Our flight from Barbados on American

Dominican Republic?!!?

Next stop is the Dominican Republic…. When we told friends, that this is one of our stops on our trip, we did not get the “aahhh” and “ooohhh””” . And to be honest, it wouldn’t have made it, if our friend Jana wasn’t so in love with a special place called Las Terrenas. We arrived

3 weeks passed

Now it is 3 weeks and it feels like 3 months. What happened ? We spend our days and nights in bikini or not much more…surrounded by mellowness, the warm wind, the warm rain, the sun, the warm ocean, the mild air. We eat healthy by nature. The fruits from the tree, the coconut with

Catch of the day

Being the most easterly Caribbean island Barbados seems to have an abundance of fish. Delicacies are flying fish and dolphin – this shocked us at first, but of course it is not the dolphin we know but the dolphin fish, also know as Mahi Mahi. One of my magic moments from Barbados: I was kiting

Exploring Barbados

Barbados has its own soul – that is for sure. It has tranquility and beauty, traffic jams and poverty, lush tropical greens, a mix of people from around the globe – all of them seem to have their own style and character, great fish, fresh fruit, music, and a very different sense of time…
