Travelling doesn’t always have to be about going to the furthest ends of the earth and finding the most unique and life enriching experiences, it can be about going to places and simply being a tourist. There’s nothing wrong with the doing the whole ‘touristy’ thing, so the next time you want to do […]
After crossing the border into Panama we caught a small bus heading in the direction of Bocas Del Toro. Bocas is a hot destination for travelers, boasting unique party venues and a plethora of activities. The bus only take you half way, the other half is one of my preferred methods of transport (for all […]
Diving is the closest thing you can experience to being in space. It’s also a lot cheaper and you’ll find a lot more life under the sea; maybe even a mermaid or two…? With 28 dives in five different countries under our belt we have developed a new obsession with being under water. We wanted to put together a […]
We’ve been invited to write a blog post for the ‘Inspire Language Learning: Blogger Challenge‘ about what we think is the most important benefit of learning another language, is it traveling experiences, career, love life or brain power? You can easily argue that learning another language benefits all of these aspects of your life. For […]
As another excursion effort, we went to see how chocolate was made. Gaz being the good boyfriend he is, was happy to whisk me up a mountain to see my favourite thing in life, I’m sure there was an ulterior motive there somewhere. So we cracked opened a cacao pod fresh off the tree (with a […]
Feeling like we should get stuck in and act like tourists again we signed up for a few activities in and around Puerto Viejo. This is not our usual style of traveling, we like to go at our own pace, stay away from the crowds and find the hidden gems rather than the obvious. However […]
Whether sunbathing or surfing Cocles Beach is the places to go. Not too crowded but there’s a few people if you like to have a nose and people watch from behind your book, or slyly check out the hot surfers without your boyfriend knowing ;) Just 5 minutes walk from Rockin J’s hostel and about […]
Rockin J’s is very well known as THE party hostel in Puerto Viejo.
After our house sit in Costa Rica we headed south to Puerto Viejo, a hippy surfing town just before the border with Panama. Hearing great things about this place we wanted to stop and chill for a while even though we planned to travel through Costa Rica quickly.. as it’s not the most bank friendly […]
Before taking this journey, there was very little information online about going from Nicaragua to Costa Rica so here’s our itinerary, I hope it helps! We left Little Corn on Thursday 19th April and arrived in San Jose, Costa Rica on 27th, having been on four boats, four buses, three taxis and two tuk tuks. […]
I think we can safely say, Nicaragua has been one of the best countries either of us have ever been too. With the exchange rate at 23 cordobas to a dollar, which equals around 60p it’s incredibly cheap. A slap up meal (if you can find one) will cost around 3 quid and a taxi […]
So we stocked up with the cheapest rum we could find, grabbed our enormous blue boarding cards and got ready for our hour-long flight to paradise.
