My next dentist appointment, which will get my crowns put in isn't until Thursday. Mario isn't here yet either so today I'd be making a move to see another area of Costa Rica. Whilst this is my fourth trip here I feel like I haven't seen a huge amount;... Read more >

Finishing my dental work

Friday, 20 Jan 2012 | Views [1461]

Today was really intense! And I was almost not here today; when I went to board my flight to Costa Rica yesterday the lady at the counter told me that since I didn't have a ticket out of Costa Rica, that I had to either buy a plane or bus ticket. Fortunately, ... Read more >

Four days of rain have passed, and for the past couple of days there've been no buses to Panama via Paso Canoas or Rio Sereno since the road is washed out. Rain and thunder have wreaked havoc all over the Land of Pura Vida; all last night I listened ... Read more >

As I approached Tortuguero after the one-hour boat ride, I immediately thought "Venice of the Caribbean." However, once I walked into town I realized that only the few buildings near the dock are partially built on water. Tortuguero means ... Read more >

Eyes on both coasts

Saturday, 10 Oct 2009 | Views [733]

Standing at the corner of Avenida 2 and Calle 3, there's a sign for the bus to Volcan Irazu. The other day I had teeth pulled out and I have a mouthful of stitches, so I was ready for an escape from San Jose for the day. Earlier I asked Jonathan if he ... Read more >
