    ... t hang out in downtown Austin as much but our lack of tattoos was extremely evident in Santa Teresa. Brian did like to see the girls in their tiny bikinis carrying their surf boards. I don't know if I am being snarky but I kept seeing more girls carrying surf boards in their tiny bikinis than guys carying their boards. And yet, I saw mostly men surfing on the actual water...Is a surf board the new accessory for bikinis? ...

    This was a day of surprises. FUN surprises and, well, I just have to tell you all about it.

At the El Sano Banano hotel where we were staying breakfast was served outdoors (as is the case for most restaurants in Costa Rica).

    Most people probably know this as a general rule of thumb anyway, but this specific example makes it crystal clear.

    Try and buy western food and you'll pay through the nose, and it'll taste rubbish.
    Buy local, and it'll be amazing.

    Case in point: I have a pizza addiction. I haven't yet tried one out here, but the prices are huge, and I know it will be ...

    ... and Paul wasn't keen to repeat it. But here we find ourselves in a land that where it seems everybody either surfs or does yoga, so I persuaded him to give surfing one more try. As usual, Jenny set us up with a surf instructor and childcare. How are we going to survive without Jenny?

    We drove the bumpy road from Cabuyo to Mal Pais dodging iguanas and ATVs. Mal Pais is a town that is 100% devoted to surfing. Everybody ...
