Soñando con el paraíso? Estoy buscando para compartir mi Costa Rica el Caribe estilo de vida.

"Si usted no ve lo que usted desea, pidelo!" Todos hemos oído esa expresión. Bueno, yo lo he tomado en serio y estoy haciendo precisamente eso. Yo quiero que el amor - el amor romántico - y estoy pidiendo. Amigos, familiares, extraños ... Le pido a cualquiera y todo el mundo. Ha publicado en todo Facebook. Sé exactamente, específicamente lo que quiero y he hecho una página web con mi petición: Ya he recibido una respuesta positiva:

"Se está buscando algo muy noble e importante para todo ser humano."
"¡Qué gran manera de explicar en detalle, sin embargo, simplemente diciendo" Hola, soy yo! '"
"Pocas personas tienen la capacidad de expresar sus temores y prejuicios de todo corazón - bravo"
"Usted ha transmitido lo que yo quiero, pero no soy tan valiente como tú para pedir, ¡buena suerte!"

Dreaming of Paradise? I'm looking to Share my Costa Rica Lifestyle!

“If you don’t see what you want, ask for it!” We’ve all heard that expression. Well I’ve taken it to heart and I’m doing just that. I want love - romantic love - and I am asking for it. Friends, family, strangers... I ask anybody and everybody. It’s posted all over Facebook. I know exactly, specifically what I want and I’ve made a web page with my request: Already I’ve received a positive response:

I'm doing a CR Visa Run Wed. Nov. 16 to Nicaragua - wanna join us?

I'm doing a CR Visa Run Wed. Nov. 16 to Nicaragua - wanna join us? I'm not positive yet if it's a few nights plus in San Juan del Sur or overnight to San Jorge (where you catch the boat to Isla Ometepe) or which way we're going (it WILL be by bus - just not poz if it's Deldu for $9ish, TransNica or the TransNica noon Executive bus). I've done this trip 12 times now so I can help ya with the ropes!!


OK so if the crime rate there doesn't scare you away there are two other points that need to be looked into.

one is a Luxury home tax you have to pay every year.. you see they are out of money, so a while back they voted in a new law that was set up and pushed through. the idea was, you have money and have a nice home, and we have people here that live in well, dumps. so we want to take your money and use this to build our people a better home to live it. yeah you owe them don't you.. well the law passed and it was only going to be a law for 10 years, after that it would be gone.. 2 things happen today,, first they voted to allow that tax to be forever.... and 2nd so far no one can show any of this money that has been paid in so far that went to build a single home... hummmm.. o and you have to hire someone to come out and tell you what your home is worth so you will know how much to pay!!!


I had posted in one of my blogs to get out while you can from the U.S. and some people feel that, that is a little harsh maybe even tin hat time for me to say that. First off I love the U.S. don't get me wrong. But one has to start to look at facts and try to foresee what COULD happen and where your going to be when and if it does. No one can say that the u.s. is not in trouble. We are in many wars that are killing off our young people at a cost to us in the trillions of dollars. They are going to reraise the debt ceiling again and more bail outs are coming. all this is being done but yet the will of the people are saying NO NO NO... china has dumped their holdings with the u.s. and are not willing to hand us anymore money.


Hello everyone, I hope that all is going well in your part of the world.. well maybe it isn't due to the fact that you have found and spend time reading this web site.. what's that mean? it means your looking into a change of life. for whatever reason.. maybe the u.s. crime is getting out of hand, or the government. maybe your bored and need a last ditch ring around to make you feel alive. maybe your tired of your damn kids, yes you love them, but you handed them the best years of your life and now it's time for you damn it.

well today I woke at around 12 pm. had a little something to eat, laid in the hammock and watched and smelled it rain for a hour, watched birds zipping here and there and yes watched the grass grow.. ahhhhh stressful life today. thursday I'll play poker with the boy's smoke to much and for sure drink far more.. then fri. it's off to the beach to soak in some rays, and to check out my wifes fine ass.. ahhh yes.. what a life.

Hello (not) from paradise!

Hello Readers and Friends,
        As you may know, I have been in the United States for a month. Most of my time has been spent in a little chunk of suburbia penned in by a maze of massive highways on the East Coast Megalopolis. I have two more weeks until I'm back home in paradise. My time here has confirmed the two most important things I just said in the previous sentence: "back home" and "in paradise".
        When I first moved to Costa Rica people often asked me if I intended to stay there always. "Always - that's a long time." I would reply. "I'm here now, that's all I know." The idea of home takes a while to develop; getting your bearings, making friends, learning about the area, accepting the bad with the good and finding your own little niche. I'm coming on four years of Caribbean life and I now finally, freely call it home. Will I always live there? Always is a long time...

Central American Travel Primer

A primer for those traveling/volunteering/possibly relocating to El Salvador, Guatemala and the rest of Central america for the first time.



I found this written by another person and I found it to be spot on with what is going on in costa rica I will post it and then write more below..

"I thought perhaps another type of post might be of interest, one written by someone who has no hate or axe to grind, a perhaps less prejudiced and more objective view of what life is really like in Costa Rica. I know in advance some will not agree with this point of view, but here goes.


WOW what a year, BP oil spill now the plants in japan. I pray for us all. I was looking at some air flow maps and it looks like most of it is covering the whole u.s. this is a great site that shows you if you dare to look at it. Norwegian Institute for Air Research static and dynamic maps show radiation contamination across the Northern Hemisphere with estimates of potential releases, increasing daily.
