How the time has flown. On this day five years ago, we first set foot in Costa Rica to make a new life and have a grand adventure.
We have never regretted our decision to pull up roots, downsize our possessions, and explore a country that we had never been to. The country, the people, the weather - everything suits us very well. We have more friends here then we had back in Canada. There are challenges - learning a new language for example. But these are the things that keep a person interested and involved in life.
It is wonderful to be able to explore a place at leisure, absorb the culture and get to know the people. Visiting somewhere for a week is not the same at all.
To those of you who read my blog, a big thank you for being with us on our journey. Here's to many, many more years together.
Here are some retrospective photos:
