This Is Why You’re Safe Up A Costa Rican Volcano

Imagine it’s early 2017, and you’re walking up a steep, winding path in Costa Rica, the surrounding trees dripping water on you with every step you take.

Namely: it flooded.   

Or rather, the bridge connecting it to the mainland did, due to an unusually high tide (over 14 metres in height/depth). It’s a rare sight, and a truly spectacular thing when it happens, almost supernaturally photogenic, like a Disney special effect coming to life in the real world.

September is here…time to move?

Greetings from Thailand!

September is upon us, signalling a coming change in seasons and all that comes with that - shorter days, cooler weather, and the return to many routines that were paused through the summer months.
