Yesterday we literally did nothing other than sit by the pool, drink cocktails and enjoy the sun. At about 4pm it rained really heavily so we all huddled under the canopy that protected the bar and stayed in the pool until it was dark! Paul and Chalkie felt like they needed one last adventure so… Continue reading Quad Biking near Manuel Antonio
We tried to talk them out of it but Mum and Dad have fallen in love with Costa Rica so much that today they put a deposit down on a house. It’s only a small plot but Mum said she loves little yellow houses and they just had to have it. Obviously we don’t mind… Continue reading Mum and Dad buy another holiday home
We left San Ramon at 9am this morning after saying goodbye to the families we have been with for 2 weeks. Although we are all excited to be moving onto somewhere new, it was sad to leave them behind knowing we probably wouldn’t see them again. The minibus journey was just over 3 hours to… Continue reading Chalkie Dundee!
Yesterday after the car crash, Marta’s neighbour George came to the rescue and escorted Mum and Dad to the Quinta. We later found out he was actually Marta’s husbands cousin and was also working across the street from us today. This morning we had only been at work about half an hour and he came… Continue reading Tour of Volio and a Maccy D’s
We woke this morning to another beautiful day in Costa Rica and made the most of a lay in as tomorrow it’s back to our 5.30 alarms! We met for breakfast and spent a few hours by the pool until check out at 12pm. Our pass to the Tabacon included a free next day pass… Continue reading End of a perfect weekend
We woke this morning to glorious sunshine in the most perfect location you could imagine. The hotel is a small family business but the plot they have here is amazing. Paul and I missed breakfast as last week we got up at 5.45am every morning and I refused to get up until at least 9am… Continue reading Hot springs at Tabacon
This morning we left the hotel at 8am and took a 2 hour minibus ride to The Sacred Valley just outside of Cusco. We knew we had signed up for a trek and some zip lining but were a little surprised when we arrived. The minibus pulled up by a 300m vertical rock face that… Continue reading Zip lining over The Sacred Valley
This morning we organised a tour with the hotel to see the local sights of Cusco. Our driver Henry who works at the hotel was born and raised in Cusco so knew the best places to take us. I thought the tour would just be of old buildings and ruins but to my delight the… Continue reading Tour of Cusco and a lot more alpacas!
We arrived at our guesthouse Torre Dorada this morning around 7am and went straight to bed until midday. We chose the hotel because it had really good trip advisor reviews, especially for the service and trips plus it was great value. It is located in Cusco which is the historic capital of the Inca Empire… Continue reading Cusco town and baby alpacas!
After the penguin tour on Friday, Aimi began to feel unwell so luckily we had two sea days on Saturday and Sunday for her to relax. We had a white water rafting tour booked for this morning but unfortunately Aimi was still not feeling well at all which meant she had to stay in bed… Continue reading White water rafting in Puerto Montt
