After a lie in to nurse some hangovers we met at the supermarket to pick up some food for a picnic. We decided to spend Christmas Day at the beach. This was my 1st time spending Christmas in a different country and it couldn't of been more different. While the food couldn't touch my mum's Christmas dinner, the weather certainly could.

... the beginning, but as long as you just look straight and not down, you'll be OK. I was amazed with some of the members in our group -- there was a little boy (4 yrs old) and I never heard him cry or whine at all despite the long walks, uphill climb and the swaying bridges - he was just going along with it - so I guess we couldn't complain.

We ended up in a look out to see the rumbling, steaming Arenal Volcano - ...
