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.

Completing the circle in Costa Rica

Hot springs and rafting

A travel blog entry by davethyom

From Monte Verde we travelled to La Fortuna, another action packed town. The evening we decided to go to the hot springs. They were different to the last hot springs because they were based at a hotel and were man made pools. We had a piņa colada at the wet bar and relaxed in the warm water. 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 ...
