Leaving Our Casa Cielo Behind - Moving On

A travel blog entry by gilmer


It is currently 7:37 am in the morning.

Today, we leave our Casa Cielo in Sardinal behind and head on to our next destination in Jaco, Costa Rica.

A travel blog entry by blondesontour


Day 79: Tom and I took our DSD's out from the pool the other day into the ocean. Shea, who just passed her instructor exams yesterday came with us. Which turned out to be pretty handy really. Both of them needed way more weight. Tom and I both gave them extra and they still needed more and they already had quite a bit. It wasn't that they were necessarily massive, they just needed a lot more weight! I ended up holding hands with the female dsd and Shea looked after the ...
