Costa Rica en una dia!

A travel blog entry by henry.and.sarah

Men jag lever och frodas än!

I väntan på lite bilder så har jag sammanställt lite statistik över min resa:

Leaving my babies, snickers cake & shit weather

A travel blog entry by blondesontour

So showing how much I appreciate Claire I got up even earlier than usual to make her a snickers cookie cake for her birthday. I was immediately foiled in my plans by a lack of scales. I usually don't use scales but I was using half filled stuff and things in glass containers with no weights on so I literally made it up. I also didn't have any …

Costa Rica - Puerto Viejo

A travel blog entry by leanne.baker

It’s touristy – and more and more …

    it was a very good decision to stay at the pagalu hostel. clean, save, nice and very helpfull staff. a really clean kitchen with good stuff to use. the only small minus: its allowed to smoke everywhere in the whole common area even inside the kitchen while cooking. so they give no rules, and some of the people smoking did not respect nonsmokers while eating and online surfing in the common area. really pity.
