Sorry guys for not jumping in on my own topic. I was away on a small Golf vacation with my friends and just returned. Sorry again for forgeting two important points. One,This will not be my first meeting with the girl and she is fluent in English. Two, I just returned from 3 months in Ukraine. This was my 8th trip to Ukraine and Russia. So, Tim you can settle down. I'm not a coward and lazy. Toad, as for the Dominican Republic I am well aware of the socio-economic situation and the corrupt government and police. In fact you just described all the FSU countries. You're just missing the Palm trees and the beaches. Dominican Republic is a very popular holiday destination for Canadians, Germans, and French. It has many 4 and 5 star resorts there. I was just hoping that one of you had stayed in one of these resorts and could recommend one. There are so many to choose from. I thought it would be nice to take my girl over there. Neautral territory for the both of us.
Wait till January before you make plans and see if there is anything left of the Dominican Republic from this years hurricane season, it looks like Ivan the Terrible might have some say as to the romantic rendezvous plans of many.
