Perfect Beach

A 5 minute walk takes us to the beach. There’s nobody there, except for a few surfers that are 500m away. We really don’t have to worry about them. Though we haven’t seen the sun yet, the water is warm! Chris and I have a lot of fun in the waves, doing some body surfing to the shore. We haven’t died yet in the waves, so that’s great! On the part of the beach where we are, the sand is PERFECT! There’s absolutely no shells or rocks, it’s just fine sand. We went for a walk and a little bit …

Pura Vida!

We’re finally in Puerto Viejo! We took the bus this morning (a 4 hour drive) to Puerto Viejo. I was a bit relieved to leave San José… I have to say, the city wasn’t my favorite part of Costa Rica! Too loud, with lots of people and it stunk. (The part we were in wasn’t the greatest… Maybe somewhere else is way better! “I also have a very strong sense of smell and it’s a miracle my own farts don’t kill me.” -Chris) On the bus, we saw a loooooot of green. There were also some cows on the way, …

The plane landed and all we could see was green. The grass was green, the trees were green, everything was green! A big change from Québec… After getting out of the plane, I thought it would be easy. Step 1, find a taxi. Step 2, get to the hotel. Well, I expected the taxis to be in a straight line and we’d get in the first one. WRONG ANSWER! We felt like George Clooney coming out of that airport, everybody wanting us to take THEIR taxi over everybody else. Kind of overwhelming as a first experience of Costa Rica. Then …

So we’re in Toronto right now, with some time to kill. We can’t get any wifi in the E terminal because of the invasion of the Ipads (there’s at least 500 of them everywhere) We can’t really do anything on them, so time to use our laptops! I was a bit tired, but taking a nap on those chairs is REALLY HARD. Chris seems to be fine, the only thing he wants before we leave is A&W. Probably not gonna happen, haven’t seen one in our terminal! Maybe in 3 months then?… 🙂

Everything is packed, we’re ready to go! Tomorrow we’ll be in Costa Rica for the beginning of an incredible journey. It was nice Quebec, but it is just not working anymore. No, there is not someone else. OK FINE! There is someone else. We are leaving you for Costa Rica. She is beautiful and warm. Not like you. You’ve been getting colder toward us all month and we just can’t take it anymore. GOODBYE! We’ll see you when you’re ready to talk (or just a bit warmer!)
