Costa Rica – Santa Teresa

We arrive in Costa Rica in the dark in pouring rain. Yes, it is rainy season…. We pick up our rental car and spend the first night in a hotel close to the airport. http://www.hotelbrillasol.com/ But still, it feels already a bit like in the jungle, for sure Costa Rican with the typical Costa Rican breakfast

Cayo Levisa

After 10 days without any ocean, we were keen on exploring the Caribbean waters. Cayo Levisa is in the North, a remote small island with just one hotel. It is about a half an hour ferry ride. The hotel was a nice surprise, as it has various beach bungalows built along the beautiful white sandy

Cuban style flying

Cuba, one of the last enclaves of communism on the globe, has missed progress in almost every area of life, and flying is no different. We have booked flights with Cubana to and from Cuba, as they offer the only direct connection and the cheapest fare (and surfboards as it turns out are charged at

Cuban country side – Viñales and Soroya

From Havana we explored a bit the countryside. Viñales is a  small town in the mountains surrounded by lush green jungle. We live the very basic pleasures. Swimming in the river, surrounded by pigs and piglets, oxes passing by… Time to meditate and think about what is. From the distance, many days would look the

Cuba libre

CUBA is fascinating as an example of communism in a Caribbean setting. When talking to people before the trip, most of them loved it in a way, but said it was exhausting. There was even Rolf with a kite school, who told me that the kite school is closed and that he spends the summer

Cabarete kite mecca

But we felt like we have to see it ourselves… The drive along the coast was flavoured with stunning views of turquoise water and endless beaches, busy villages etc. Arriving in Cabarete, we have had a great surprise, as our

Las Terrenas life

So some might wonder, what is so different from a house and pool in summer on Mallorca? And there is a lot! There is so much different, that I first had to see and digest. Where are we here?!? After one week, I love many things about Las Terrenas: Kiting: There is a very cool

Las Terrenas

The next morning we are off to Las Terrenas. It is an absolutely stunning drive through the mountains on a perfectly build highway, sponsored by Coca-Cola and Orange. We approach las Terrenas: little wooden shacks with palm leaf roofs. Bananas, passion fruits, mangos, coconuts. There is a wide range of delicious fresh fruits directly from

You’re not welcome

We are ready for our next adventure. The next surprise awaits us at the American Airlines counter. In pretty much any airport in the world that I remember you can pass through as a transiting passenger (Frankfurt, London, Dubai, Moscow, …). Not so in the US as we learned. Our flight from Barbados on American
