Costa Rica: The Beginning of my Spanish Obsession

A travel blog entry by lakaitgreg


In high school I suffered through a year of Spanish with a teacher who, just a month before the start of the school year, recovered from a stroke. It wasn't her fault for her inability to write well or to concentrate on teaching the class, I blame this solely on the stroke. However, her constant absences and shut-up-and-watch-a-movie-in-Spanish …

There was also a super speedy slide which Dave went down. Allie told him to keep straight and not to move his head so he didn't get injured, he managed to do this so ...

Kayaks, Waterfalls, Hotsprings

A travel blog entry by egatfield


What a busy day! We awoke to heavy thunderheads in the sky, but headed out on our kayak tour of Lake Arenal in spite of the weather. After a brief safety demonstration, each of us was issued a paddle and a life vest, then assigned to a tandem sea kayak (you sit on top, not inside). Hannah Abbott and Danielle paired up, followed by Hannah and her sister Abbi, Van and his sister Savannah, and Sean and I shared a kayak as well. ...
