foto friday 14 {dominican replublic – off the beaten path style}

Well, we are still enjoying our little vacation so I thought it only fitting to share with you some photos of a vacation we took last year to the Dominican Republic.  Most people know of places like Punta Cana and Puerto Plata and stay in all-inclusive resorts with all the amenities anyone could wish for.

But we tend to travel just a little bit differently.  I hope you enjoy some of the highlights from our very off the beaten path journey through small fishing villages in the DR.

Enjoy your weekend, see you back here next week.  :)

    Amazing how differently they live than us! It’s always a good reminder that we are so blessed (but I bet they dont realize that they live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.)

    Gorgeous photos. Looks like you had fun playing the board game (don’t know the name) with the young men. Love that as you travel you meet and spend time with the locals, now that’s really getting to know the area. Hope there will be photos from the current va-cay as well.

    So beautiful! This is the third time in 24 hours I have read or heard something about the Dominican Republic. Yesterday I watched “House Hunters International”, the featured couple were buying a house in Punta Cana. So gorgeous. So different from my life. Thanks for sharing.

    I just found your blog through a comment you left on mine and I can’t believe I haven’t visited before-it’s wonderful! Your pictures of the Dominican Republic are gorgeous-I honeymooned there years ago. I’m so happy to have found your blog, I’m a new follower!
