BUCKET LIST: Costa Rica

love it!

freebird diaries

According to Lonely Planet, one expat called this hot spot the “black hole of happiness.” You’ve been warned! Heed caution when visiting Costa Rica because you might never leave. But why would you?

While I have yet to meet a shoe that I don’t like and my stroll is faster than a speed walkers, there’s something to be said about a place where shoes are optional and siestas are mandatory. For those city dwellers, it’s time to overdose on nature because this country is all about its pristine sand beaches, breathtaking views, and lush rainforests.

Stay active by surfing, practicing yoga, zip lining, horse back riding, or trekking through the rainforest where you might run into a sloth! How can you deny the allure of the sloth?!

Or, embrace nothingness. Lounge on the beach with the local beverage of choice, cacique guaro, and  laugh at the lobster…

The Travel Itch

awesome!

TeaTimeTraveller

We know the travel itch all too well, to put down whatever you’re doing, whatever you have going on and get out the house and jet off. You’ve seen a friend post on Facebook or Twitter a snapshot of themselves in front of a famous landmark and suddenly there it is in the back of your head, the travel itch.
        You would think that responsibilities would keep the itch at bay, I’ve got that essay due in next week, I’m pulling a double shift this weekend, its that friend’s birthday again, didn’t they have one just last year? One solution that I’ve found to curb the itch until you have the funds and time to escape is hosting couch surfers. It’s like bringing the adventure right to your doorstep. My flatmate and I have hosted people from France, Poland, Spain, Israel and a lovely couple from the Czech…

No act of kindness is ever too small

remember…

Couchwasabi | Asian Beauty & Lifestyle Blog

Today, I had an epiphany.

I went for a quick grocery shopping this morning and while paying for them at the counter, a grocery personnel–the security guard–came in line next to me to pay for his groceries. I courteously moved away my stuff so he can place his grocery items on the counter. He only had a few. I couldn’t help but notice that his items were ingredients for him to make fruit salad. So, with my unstoppable mouth, I playfully greeted him saying, “Uy, kuya, pang Media Noche?” (Are those for New Year’s Eve feast?)

Learn Important Tips About Travel Dos And Don’ts

Traveling is fun and interesting, regardless of the reason for your trip. One thing that makes your travel miserable is having to pay too much money. Keep reading if you want to learn how to cut down on travel expenses while still reaching your intended destination.

Before packing, make a list. Create this list either a few months to a week before your trip. Even last minute packing won’t be as stressful, when you have a list to reference. It will also take the panic out of forgetting anything.

Keep a photo of your children on you at all times, in case they become lost. The idea of losing your child is a terrifying one. However, in case it happens, you should be prepared. Having a photo on you to share with authorities could mean the difference in whether or not your child is found quickly.

Be vigilant when dealing with local police or other officials, in case they’re not who they claim to be, but instead are imposters. Do not give over your personal information, as you could end up with no identification fast. If they insist on transporting you to an office, walk with them. Make sure that you do not get into an automobile with somebody that you do not know, especially if they are acting oddly.

When flying on a plane, you should plan ahead because an airline won’t always be able to meet your basic needs, even when the flight lasts for many hours. Because of cutbacks, many airlines do not provide pillows, blankets or headphones, so bring your own if you will use them. You should also bring enough snacks to get you to your destination and not have to rely on airport food.

Bring clothespins on your next trip. They can be very useful.

Try to go to the gym prior to getting on a flight. Being on a long flight can be incredibly boring. Sitting for a long time can cause cramps in your legs and back. To eliminate back and leg pain, stretch and do a light workout to prepare for your flight.

It’s important to tip the housekeeper and bell station well. You don’t have to overdo it, though, just a simple dollar per bag and no more than five dollars a day for the housekeeper is adequate enough. Tipping ensures good service and is sure to make your interactions with hotel staff more pleasurable.

Using advice like what is offered in this article will help you travel smarter and help you travel more easily. If you can save money on all the incidences of travel, you might enjoy the trip more.
