Dear Fellow Traveler, Tell me about your journey,The places you’ve seen, the people you’ve met. Tell me about the sights that have changed your life,The conversations that shattered your reality. Don’t leave out a single detail,The good, the lousy, or the mundane. If you have the time,I’ll pour the tea. Your Fellow Traveler,Tony

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

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

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, 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

Hello friends, Tomorrow I’ll be leaving for Costa Rica! I’m looking forward to getting to spend the next week hiking through the jungles, climbing mountains, swimming along the beaches, and meeting new and wonderful people. I’m excited to share some new photos and stories when I return! (If I ever return haha) Have a wonderful day! -Tony

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

Travel West, Until you’ve found, Mountains in the sky, And horizon unbound. Where life rests by day, And wanders in night, A land unowned, Known no king or rite. Be cleansed in the river, That has no end, Just await the falcon, In the river’s bend.

There was a sage living atop a great mountain,Her temple was crafted by the Earth,With columns of stone,And a canopy of leaves. Many sought the wisdom of the sage,They would climb the cliffs and ledges,Suffering the winds and sun,Until they reached her summit. The temple had no doors,Simply a wide open arch,Beckoning all who pass to enter,And find sanctuary within her halls. As the sage walked forward,Pilgrims would fall to their knees,Some… Read More
