Vieques Island



A little island in the Caribbean that Katarína found by accident and fell in love immediately. After she introduced us, we found ourself in the same position.

A part of the Spanish Virgin Islands, this little Puertorican island is often called 'Isla Nena' (meaning 'Little Baby Sister') or Biéke - the original Taíno name of the island.
There is this nice new website called tonajenasavm2nalifars, check it out!
