Makin the most of the Caribbean coast

The last 3 days have been filled with some incredible adventures. Jungle hikes, Costa Rican cooking classes, surfing in the Caribbean and much more. We arrived at the Shawanda Lodge just outside of Puerto Viejo early Sunday afternoon. Unpacked our bags, grabbed the boogie boards and headed for the beach. The surf was a constant,… Read More »

Bringing lacrosse to Costa Rica!

Today was our first full day in San Jose. It started off with a breakfast at Denny’s (obviously), which turns out to be the most expensive restaurant in all of Costa Rica (huh?), then we packed our lacrosse bags and headed to the ‘pitch’. The location of the field is rather difficult to explain as… Read More »

US Border Services

530am we check in. That was smooth. 10 guys, 22 checked bags, and tons of excitement. 1 X-ray machine, 2 shoes in the tote, 3minute wait. Through security we all go, no delays. It’s almost 6am, with 1 gate to go. ‘What is the nature of your visit to the United States?’ the USBS agent… Read More »

18 degrees and sunny.

Damn it’s cold. So cold I can see my breath. I check the weather, 6 degrees currently, with a high of 6, and a low of 2. Hmmm. I check the weather again, ooops. I was on the wrong page. I was checking Vancouvers weather report, silly me. San Jose (Costa Rica) shows 18 degrees… Read More »

10, 9, 8…

Crystal clear blue water, white sand beaches, rolling surf… Sign me up! Board shorts, check. Sun screen,… Read More »

A month away

It’s a month away and I am anxious. I don’t know what to bring, I don’t know who’s going, I don’t know much. What I do know is it’s going to be a great time. Why didn’t I travel when I was younger? Hind sight is always 20/20. I will blog again in this trip,… Read More »

Same same, but different

Well, I haven’t posted a blog in a while mainly because nothing has changed. As the street vendors (hawkers) say… same same, but different. The story left off in Railay beach, I can’t say enough about the place. If you’re in the Krabi area of Thailand at all, this is a must! It’s only accessible… Read More »

Stranded at sea

4 island snorkling tour, sounds like fun! Water, a snack, and an authentic Thai lunch for 500Baht($17CAD) seems like a pretty good deal. Sign us up! We leave Railay beach at around 945am heading to Poda Island. It’s technically a private island, but the beach is public domain. Our guide gives us an hour to… Read More »

Miles from ordinary

Honestly, I couldn’t even tell you what day it is. The day of the week, or day of the month mean absolutely nothing to me right now. We have more than a week of nothing, and it feels great. As we arrived in the Krabi airport we joked about the fact we didn’t even know… Read More »

Adventures of Keith and Keith

As the adventures of Keith and Keith continue, there is far less downtime for me to write these things. We left Nepal in a hurry. Thankfully our wonderful travel agent, Robin, was able to change all of our flights to accomedate the change of plans. From Kathmandu to Hong Kong, HK to Bangkok… We left… Read More »
