Costa Rica - Week 1: Bahía Salinas

A travel blog entry by globalshepherds


... It was hot and I really didn't feel like swimming in that ocean. It didn't seem that inviting (how could it after TCI to be fair) and then I was told there were jelly fish and sting rays. In fact, a few days later, one of the kiters got his foot speared by a sting ray. Pete, a very nice Australian ship captain, was the victim and he said it hurt so much he really wanted to cry. He explained that the reason he didn't cry is because he didn't want everyone calling him an Aussie ...

A travel blog entry by jcgallagher


... monkey face or dirty face. Take your pick! Using Puffy's recommendation of tequila to stop the Mosquitos biting me ended up instead with me confirming the saying "1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila, floor". And what do you know, I still got bitten. Off to Monteverde tomorrow. By horseback. Yes horseback. I will be sitting on a horse for 5 hours. The fact that i fell off a bike yesterday does not bode well for my horse riding expertise. Wish me luck and adios ...
