Therapy? I throw my socks at you!

A travel blog entry by bpancoast


... sometime in the late evening. Six hours will be spent in the sun, so I imagine there will be sleeping on the 2 and a half hour bus ride home.

Here's to hoping that the guard dog doesn't chase the cats tonight and keep me awake. Earplugs will be in effect! I'm sorry for those of you who are suffering through more winter weather. It was in the mid-80s here today and bright and sunny. Be safe! Pura ...

A travel blog entry by bl70976


After a rough travel day from Nicaragua to Costa Rica consisting of 3 hours in customs and a 12 hour total transit we finally arrived in Cartago at night time and were unaware of the beauty around us until morning.

Once we had used the automatic check-in machine we then saw there was a one and a half hour wait until the counter staff would arrive so that we could hand over our luggage. So if you have a flight any flight, there is no point being at the airport before ...

What's with the single banana???

A travel blog entry by costaricamckenn


... are actually investing quite a bit of money to try and solve this problem because they are losing a lot of revenue because no one buys the single bananas. This is why you might see bunches of bananas wrapped in plastic or a strong rubber band around the bunch. These tactics are usually pretty unsustainable, the less plastic wrapping the better in my book. So theoretically if everyone gets over their fear of single bananas we can eliminate the need for unnecessary banana packaging!! ...
