Five Year Anniversary

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:

Super congratulations! Wow, has time ever gone by! I have been following your blog from the beginning, and now live vicariously through you, as I have zero adventure. Here's to another happy and healthy five!

Received this great email from Mike Elder:

"'Don't blink time flies! We have been here three and a half.

Y'all truly are the definition of adventurers.

Thanks for the blog and your positive attitude about our adopted town and country. It matters that we respect the place and the culture. You have done that.

I tried to post on your blog but it must not have taken.
