Soooo after the border crossing and a quick ATM withdrawal it was a pretty smooth ride into Playas Del Coco, Costa Rica. Two busses, a taxi, and a few hours later I found the apartment. Colleen, Kelly and Kelsey were already settled in and chilling by the pool, so I joined in for a quick swim before we took a walk around town. The place was set on a hill and had a pretty good view of the Pacific Ocean, along with a crazy number of swimming pools. It was a sweet spot to spend the week ...

As the evening drew in I tucked into the smallest yet most tender pork ribs ever invented, so much so that it ...
... side of the road and he pulls over. Well actually he slows down sufficiently for me to run behind, throw the backpack in through the rear door and jump on. At no stage does he actually stop. It's the kind of scene I witnessed loads of time watching the Keystone Cops as a kid. Thankfully no mishaps for comedy affect this time. The conductor sees the backpack, grins and asks me if I'm going to the ferry. I confirm I am. He looks at his watch, indicates 10am and ...
