Living in Dominican Republic

So the last month in DR has seen a lot of developments…
Me, Isa and Katherine!

Me, Isa and Katherine!

When I got to Dominican Republic Isabel who I stayed with in Columbia was staying with Katherine which was great. It was great to see her again and we did some cool things. Me, Katherine, Isa and Fabio went to Samana for the day which was like paradise. I don’t think I have found a better beach anywhere… and that is saying something! We also went on a bit or a tour around the old Colonial town in Santo Domingo – we visited a few museums which included the tobacco and rum museum… guess which was my favorite?


Time for the big news! I took Katherine to our favorite restaurant in Boca Chica, just outside of Santo Domingo – and I asked her to marry me! Yep, I’m getting married! When I left the UK back in May 09 I never thought I would be getting married by the end of it, I could not be happier right now. I met Katherine on the first day of my travels believe it or not, must be fate…
It also looks like we will be settling in the Dominican Republic aswell – which I love. It is the perfect end to my travels – well I say end – it will be the end of my travels alone, me and Katherine have a few trips planned to the states and back to the UK for a visit which we are really looking forward to.
Popping the question...

Popping the question...

So I have decided to end this blog here in DR – Im working back in the states in the summer but I think it is a fitting end to this blog as I cant really write a travel blog on when I am living in the country!
Thanks for everyone that has kept up with this blog, I hope it has inspired or at least been an interesting read at times. I for one look back on the amazing memories, experiences and friends (and of course Fiancée) that I have had and made and realize just how much I have done. I would not change the experience for anything in the world. Anyone that is thinking about travelling but is uncertain, all I can say is just do it, you will only regret it if you don’t! You only live once and life is short so enjoy it – not everyone in the world has the opportunity…

So I suppose one adventure leads to another… married life ;-)
Not nervous at all...

Hey, congratulations Chris!! Absolutely delighted for you! Who'd have thought it, eh? I still remember you telling me about plans for your trip over a coffee in the Claverton Rooms and my, what a lot you've done since then. Good on you lad! (To be said with a Wallace and Grommit accent as befits this Lancashire lass).

All the very best to you both.
