All Together Now Costa Rica / Family

The past few weeks, we’ve been very busy looking for our next home, and I haven’t had much time to write this blog post. I’ll talk about the house hunting later, but for now, I’m going to reminisce about the fun times we had together with my mom and my sister’s family when they were here for a visit a few weeks ago. Like me,...

Emily in Cartagena Colombia

The past few days in Cartagena, Colombia have been a little slower-paced for us than the first few, now that we have the major tourist attractions out of the way. We switched apartments to Edificio Palmetto, which has a pool and an ocean view that has brought us some fabulous sunsets. We’ve also spent more time swimming, since the girls can’t seem to get enough...

Jaco sunset Costa Rica

Earlier this month, we decided we wanted a little beach time. With all the rain and clouds up in the mountains of Grecia, where we live, it’s been getting a little cold – yes, even sweater weather at times! We decided we wanted a little warmth and sun, and surf. Jaco is the closest beach to us, about an hour and 45 minutes away, and...

Green butterfly Costa Rica

This month Jennifer and I spent three days away from the kids celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary. We went to the northwestern part of Costa Rica where we’d never been before, near the Guanacaste beaches in the Nicoya peninsula. We wanted to do some things that would have been a little harder to do with kids. Things like… Surfing! Neither of us had ever been...

Dominical near sunset Costa Rica

Talk about views! We’ve seen the most breathtaking sites in the past few days. We decided to rent a car for a week and explore the country a little more while waiting for our new house to be ready. We were thinking of driving all the way from Grecia to Dominical in one day – about a 4-5 hour drive. However, because there are no...

Dinner at Hotel Bambito Bocas del Toro

I’m now writing from our very relaxing house on Bastimentos island in Bocas del Toro. I have a few days to catch up on, so let me just say we went to dinner at Cafe Essencia in Volcan on Saturday, and it was not good! (The first “bad” food we’ve had in Panama). The bread was very stale, and fell apart on our sandwiches and...

Panama

Okay, now that I’m without Internet access where we’re staying, I’ve been writing the content of the blog and pictures while off-line, then coming to the Internet cafe to put everything on the blog. It’s a little inconvenient, but seems to be working okay. What I miss most, however, about not having the Internet is just being able to look things up that we’re learning...
