Travel Envy

My son and his wife are vacationing in Costa Rica. We’ve been getting pictures of the beautiful resort they’re staying in and photos of the wildlife they’ve seen (an ocelot, sloths, snakes, etc.). We visited Costa Rica back in 2015, and we were very impressed (even me, who hates it when it gets too hot. It was in the ’80s but felt great in the dead of winter). We’d love to go back – we’ve even thought of retiring down there.

So we’re very envious of Nick and Lindsay this week – they were in the cloud forest and then will be heading onto Tamarindo, where we stayed when we went to Costa Rica. I suggest that everyone go there – it was fairly easy to fly down there. One caution – the roads get very bad very quickly down there. We tried a road that we couldn’t navigate in our little Toyota – a 4×4 is recommended, although the streets can get very narrow, so it can be hard to get from one end of a street to another, even when there aren’t cows walking down the street.

To celebrate not being in the cold weather, let’s listen to some great music on my podcast, which features Joni Mitchell, Sharon Van Etten, Julia Holter, the Kitchens of Distinction, the Breeders, Bram Tchaikovsky, His Name is Alive, Colourbox, Jethro Tull, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Little Feat, the Band, and Leon Russell.

The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
