Wake up - Day Well Lived

I read a lot of articles under the umbrella of self improvement; “10 Habits of the World’s Most Successful People,” “Action Steps to Get You to the Next Level,”…you know the kind.  Here’s the thing, reading an article with great ideas is quite different than honestly analyzing whether those ideas actually resonate with your real life […]

One year has flown by like the time it takes to brew a pot of coffee in the morning; you think you can get dressed, prepare some food and fire up the computer in that amount of time, but it’s ready before you’ve even selected a shirt to wear. One year and one day ago, [...]

Zip Line - Day Well Lived

One of the best things about living in Costa Rica has been having visitors from home and having the opportunity to show them around. We ventured for a day trip to Monteverde’s eXtremo Park for their Canopy Tour, and this was truly $50 well spent. Included in the tour were 14 Zip Line cables soaring […]

Grocery Shopping Alone

7 Nov , 2015  

Day Well Lived - Language Limits
We go a bit outside of town to the grocery store where the locals shop; they have a better meat selection and far better prices than the fancy grocery store in town that is priced for the tourists it conveniences. For the first time in six months, I had the courage and confidence to do [...]

A Day in The Clouds of Monteverde

20 Sep , 2015  

Monteverde - Day Well Lived
On a regular day-to-day basis, having no car in Costa Rica is no big deal; for us we have our bikes which is perfect for getting us to town whenever we need or want to go. However, a car would be really nice for exploring more of this beautiful country! So whenever we rent a [...]
