Only 4 more sleeps till I leave for Costa Rica! I’m very excited about all the photos that I’ll be able to take. I’ll be flying to Liberia and then taking the bus to Fortuna.
http://www.lafortunacostarica.com/. Fortuna is near the volcana in Arenal. Arenál rises 1633 meters above sea level and overlooks Lake Arenál; both are part of Arenál Volcano National Park. As the country’s most active volcano, Arenál’s eruptions are strombolian in nature, being frequent but moderate and can be viewed without danger as long as the viewers are behind the safety perimeter. This constant activity and minimal danger makes Arenál a popular tourist destination, especially at night because the lava and incandescent rocks make a spectacular sight. This is one of seven historically active Costa Rican volcanoes including Poás, Irazu, Mravalles, Orosi, Rincón de la Viaja, and Turrialba.
After 3 nights in Fortuna, we are heading to an ocean town named Samara. http://samarabeach.com/about.htm.
“One of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country is Playa Samara…”

The “What to do” list for Samara includes: snorkelling, boat tours, yoga classes, canopy tours, tropical forest tours, shopping, a refuge for turtles, a few national parks with crocodiles, caves, all kinds of birds, monkeys, and 250 species of birds, hot springs, another volcano, an African safari wildlife tour etc, etc.
I can’t wait!
The best dog sitter in the world is taking care of Taylor and the house. Taylor and Nikki are best buds! (She stays here all the time and is much tidier than I am!)
Needless to stay the studio will be closed from March 12th to 21st. I will not be returning calls or placing orders. If you would like to contact me, you can send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be checking my mail a couple of times a day.
