He left the comforts of his life to search for what was missing. He wasn’t sure what that something was, but he felt confident he would know once he found it. Perhaps it was a greater sense of purpose, an exciting experience, money? In his journey, he walked along many paths; some were well worn by the soles of thousands of travelers, others were so scarcely tread upon, he was unsure if… Read More

Make your offering unto me,No fish, cigars, or gold. Give me you heart,Your body and mind. Shield my domain,From those who would take it. Defend my denizen,As they are you. Serve me with your life,And receive wealth incorporeal.

Hello friends, Bright and early (well dark and early, the sun rises around 05:50) I head to the bus station to catch my ride for Quepos. It’s about a three hour trip from which I completely planned to just catch an Uber to Manuel Antonio. Well let me tell you, while Uber may be popular enough around San José and other large cities, there aren’t any in Quepos. Normally not a problem,… Read More

Howdy Friends, Today was certainly a day. Started off fairly nondescript. After a horrible night’s sleep, had a fairly lazy morning before making my way down a few blocks to the museum district. I explored a little before finally getting into the National History museum (which didn’t open until 0830.) Costa Rica has a very interesting history up until the Spanish arrived. Once the European powers began their colonial conquest, Costa Rica… Read More

Hello friends! Not the most exciting day today, spent most of the day in transit from La Fortuna to San José. But I go to visit a little cacao museum before going on a small hike and getting in the bus. It was a really interesting museum and I got to drink a tea made from the cacao husks rather than the beans that was absolutely divine. If drink that every day… Read More

Hello friends, Today was a beautiful gift. I spent the day in the jungle, zipping over the canopies and hiking. The day summited with arriving to the base of La Fortuna Waterfall where I spent the next few hours just breathing (and drinking) it in. Keeping it short today, I’m very tired. Excited for tomorrow and the rest of the trip. Sleep well y’all, -Tony

Hello Friends, I arrived in San José this morning at 01:30. I ended up taking a taxi to a hostel near the bus station (mistake, Ubers are way cheaper here.) Anyways, I got into my little bunkbed and sat there unable to sleep until some time around 03:30. At 05:30 I’m up and heading to the bus station to get a ride bound to La Fortuna. Now you wanna talk cheap? That… Read More

Hello friends, I left last night to visit my sister, asking if she would take me to the airport in the morning; being my wonderful sister she agreed (love you.) Sadly, me being me, I realized I left my phone at her house halfway to the airport (sigh.) Fortunately, her roommate is another wonderful human, and she volunteered to take me to the airport. I met up with my good friend who… Read More

Thousands of years before history was recorded, a man traveled from the East horizon across to the West. He saw great natural wonders and small tribes of people. With every new sight, every new experience, he wove a unique tale; tales he would tell to every open ear, and each sleepy tree. These tales told the stories of the world, and connected every living being to a common home. When communities evolved… Read More

The Earth is more then a massive stone soaring through space, she is a living system that nourishes and protects us all. This has never been more apparent for me then when watching a nearly 500 meter cliff face slowly breathe in the morning light, then exhaling a torrent of flame that runs down the length of the cliff. After an hour of hiking in the dark, it was vibrant, dazzling, and… Read More
