And write me a testimonial !!!”: he shouted when I left
this little paradise. Pfff, a testimonial …, how can I
express in words how wonderful this vacation was ?
OK, it all started with thinking about a holiday
somewhere far away from home. Because I visited Puerto
Plata in the Dominican Republic once for business, it
seemed a good idea to repeat this positive trip.
While surfing the internet to search for a hotel, I came
across Diego's site . As a 28 year old guy, I think I’m
a puppy compared with the average surfer of this site.
But you all know the usual story: building a career,
work a lot, social contacts are getting less, friends
who get married etc … While surfing this site I got
convinced to give this a try. My former relations ended
because in today's Western-Europe both men and women are
spending more time to build up a career than to maintain
a relationship. Divorces are sky-high here in Belgium.
But I think there are a lot op people who have problems
with this attitude.
used a service like Diego’s company, not knowing what
would happen, what to expect … I laid all my trust in
this German guy. Being a bit overwhelmed with the
quantity off these beautiful women on his site, I chose
two girls who seemed to be my kind of taste.
I mailed Diego, explaining him that I would take a
vacation in the DR and that I wanted to make use of his
service: namely introducing me to the two women I
picked. I gave him more information about myself, my
profession, what I was looking for in a woman etc. I was
positively surprised when he suggested to take another
second choice, because he thought that my second girl
would not fit with my expectations.
So I had only one girl left now to meet.
Because I only booked my flight Diego took care of
everything else: the hotel, the taxi from Santo Domingo
to Sosua (because I used free miles, I had to fly to
I must say that I was rather anxious about this all,
because I never met Diego and the only thing I booked
was the plane. But he asked a photo of me to show the
girl and to show it to the taxi driver in Sosua.
And in fact, after a very long trip from Belgium to the
DR, the taxi driver ( a friend of Diego) was waiting at
the arrival gate in Santo Domingo. A long trip of 4
hours to Sosua taught me a lot about the inner part of
the DR. And it also taught me a lot also about the
traffic situation and state of the roads ;-) . During
this trip Diego called several times to the driver to
know if everything was ok.
Once in Sosua (11 PM) we drove first to Diegho’s house
to pick him up and he checked me into the hotel.
The hotel Diego is working with is operated by a German
guy and has big, clean rooms with king-size bed,
air-conditioning, safe and cable-tv. If possible ask for
a room that is not adjacent to the street. Because the
hotel is situated on the main road of Sosua, But I saw
Diego is working now also with another
Anyhow, his hospitality surprised me enormously. We
spend several breakfasts together to talk about
experiences and “stories of our lives”.
Because there was just one girl to meet now, we set
ahead to Santiago on Sunday to meet this girl. One and a
half hours driving through the mountains brought us to
Santiago. The girl seemed a bit surprised in the
beginning, but after a little conversation with Diego we
came to the conclusion that she wasn’t anxiously
searching for a man, but wanted to meet me and know me
better. After half an hour Diego went for a smoke and
left me alone with this Spanish speaking girl (and I do
only know some words in Spanish). VERY STRATEGIC DIETER
!!!! But we worked out with a dictionary. After 30
minutes he came back and I must say that I was
interested but not overwhelmed with feelings. So we
agreed on seeing each other again in 4 days after her
Comment: Actually Kurt speaks pretty good Spanish, he
did not need my Help with his second Date
The day after I met Diego again in the hotel for
breakfast. I started thinking more about this girl I
met, the distance, the fact that I wasn’t extremely
impressed etc. So in the afternoon I called Dieter to
tell him about my feeling, and he invited me to come
immediately to his house to discuss this problem. We sat
together before his computer and he selected himself
some girls that would fit my profile and suggested to
pick “Rasaura”. Guys, if he wants to suggest somebody,
please accept it, because she was absolutely the one I
was looking for. The day after we met in Dieter's house,
and the feeling I didn’t had with the first girl, was
surely present when I saw this girl. She is incredible.
She can laugh, she is VERY nice to look at, she has an
incredible body, and she seemed very interested. So
sorry guys, I picked the best from the entire DR ;-) .
brought her back to the hotel and we had a very pleasant
conversation. She really did her best to talk slowly, to
use simple words, to look up words in the dictionary
etc. We agreed to meet again in the restaurant
“Waterfront” (very romantic). And so started a
relationship where I feel love from both sides. We had
an incredible evening … and night (no details !!).
The following days we stayed together the whole time and
visited Santiago, Cabarete, Nagua, went to the beach,
played American Pool with her brothers (wonderful
experience) and I was invited in the home of her
It was an incredible week for me and Dieter knows how
grateful I am bringing the two of us together. His
standard sentence: “That is what you’re paying me for”
is the greatest bullshit I’ve ever heard. He has done so
much more than just his job: he helped me out, he gave
us advice, he spent a lot of time with me. I never had
the feeling being treated as a client. He gave me the
honor to witness the proposal he made to his girlfriend
to marry him.
After this incredible week I had to go again, with a lot
of regrets, back to Belgium. I promised Rasaura and
Dieter to come back in June to visit Dieter again as a
friend, and to spend some more time with Rasaura off
course. Before I left, Dieter guided us to a private
school where Rasaura can study English and Computer.
Even now we have on a regular basis contact with each
beginning I was rather skeptic about all this, and
didn’t know what to expect … well this was beyond all
expectations, and I would like to thank Dieter again
(although he doesn’t like that ;-) ) for all the trust
and time and for helping me to find a new soul mate.
The future will tell hat will happen between me and
Rasaura, but I’ll keep you posted !
hope you all have such a great time as I did and believe
me: the DR girls are the most beautiful of the world…
Greetings....Kurt from Belgium
TIPS for a TRIP
Be as clear as possible on
what you’re searching or expecting. Dieter
will help you to find the right girl for the
right person. Remember, he has met them
before, you have not…
Renting a car is very
handy if you want to see something more than
just beaches and water. The girl you want to
meet probably doesn’t lives next door, so
it’s cheaper to rent a car than to pay a
taxi every time. A car will cost you
approximately 1500 peso’s a day.
Don’t be surprised: these
girls do not have the same life standard as
we have. They are pretty happy with the few
things they have. If you are invited to meet
her parents, they will treat you like you
were a king. They will do everything to
please you. Not because they have to, but
because they just want to, because it’s
their way of showing their hospitality.
Every mother wants the best for her daughter
and at that time: YOU ARE THE BEST. They
will soon see you as a part of the family if
you’re open for that.
If she doesn’t shows her
interest in you – if she doesn’t tries to
find words in the dictionary to build up a
conversation – if she doesn’t keeps the fire
in a conversation because you speak another
language … stop it and ask Dieter if he
knows somebody else.
They have absolutely no
idea of the value of money. The average
family earns approximately 3000 peso’s per
Month. So if you buy her a bikini for 150
peso’s that’s a lot of money. Remind them
that some things are not cheap even for you.
Because if they do no learn the value of
money and what they can buy with money, they
will spend your money without thinking.
Most Dominican Male's have
a macho Attitude.
This means that these girls don’t know
affection and are not used to a man who
shows his affection. They are not like
western girls. They do not always know what
to do, to express their feelings. Help them,
talk a lot, tell them that it is OK to show
feelings etc. You will not know what you’ll
be seeing …
Don’t be surprised if they
don’t know how to behave in a restaurant.
Remember that going to a restaurant costs
them 1/6th of a monthly wage, so
they don’t go there.
If it works out between
you two, she’ll soon start talking about
children etc. That’s their way. To me, it
seemed very fast to talk about how many
children, names etc. But it’s normal there.
This doesn’t means that you’ll have to have
children as soon as possible, but be
prepared about them asking your opinion
motoconcho’s (like taxi’s, but with
motorcycles for short distances) is very
easy around there. But pay them what they
normally charge (10 peso’s during the day,
or 20 peso’s at night). Because you’re a
tourist they’ll try to charge you extra (the
same with taxi’s, shops etc).
Internet is not a single
problem. You can check your mail on several
locations in Sosua.
Listen to Dieter, he knows
the habits and he knows what these girls are
Dieter helped me a lot
with finding my way around Sosua. He took
me to a bank with good currency rates – he
booked me a good hotel (40$, I checked the
price in the Casa Marina:160$ for a single
guy and no extra person is allowed in your
room) – he gave me one of his digital
camera's to take pictures – he gave me his
umbrella (yeah …sometimes it rains in the
DR) – he gave me his dictionary … So let him
be your guide and you’ll have the best
vacation in a long time.
