The nights are drawing in. The temperatures are in free-fall. The leaves are dropping. The skies are grey. It’s only going to get worse. Get out your gloves, scarves, woolly hats, and the de-icer and snow-scraper for the car. Don’t forget salt for the drive when the ice arrives. Is the 50 tog duvet ready for the bed? Thermal undies to hand? All those draughts blocked up? Stocked up with cold remedies? Ugh.
But wait! It need not be thus. Let me take you to a place of sunshine, exotic flowers and birds. Crazed neighbours and wonderful friendships. Lovable bureaucrats. Occasional earthquakes. Snuggle up with a cup of Costa Rican coffee, and come with me to the land where those coffee beans were born.
Welcome to Costa Rica! Simply brilliant expat blog by a former French resident who relocated to warmer climes and a new way of life. Have a peep, read a couple of her posts, and feel the glow. Costa Rica’s motto is “Full of Life,” and Fly’s blog certainly lives up to that. Here is a pictorial guide to some of San Jose’s varied architecture, and a train mingling nonchalantly with rush hour traffic. 🙂
And if you agree (how could you not?) that her blog deserves to win an award, you could click the link and say so.
