Welcome to   Dansk udgave! Dansk udgave

In the winter of 2017 we needed some sun to our pale bodies and went to the Dominican Republic.
We spent two weeks in February and March in this beautiful Caribbean country.
We couldn't avoid taking some hundreds of photos of which you can see some few selected on this home page.
