Rota, Spain; Day 4

Suaram, CreeperKitty and CreeperPuppy were happy to be out for breakfast together at a charming local café. The kids proficiency with Spanish has allowed them to easily order their favorite European breakfast. Dad chose Croissant Con Jamón instead of Chocolate.

Hurghada, Egypt; Day 4

Some days we have lots of cool, interesting Adventures to share. This is not one of those days. This was another resort day which started of course with the breakfast buffet. After that, Brian hit the gym while the kids snuck in some tablet time and Tiffany did some research and trip planning for futureContinue reading “Hurghada, Egypt; Day 4”

Dubai, UAE; Day 2

Most of the people workingContinue reading “Phuket, Thailand; Day 2”

Surprisingly, all were soon asleep until after the sun came up which wasn’t too bad for our first day ofContinue reading “Phuket, Thailand; Day 1”

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica; Day 6

Today is our last day in Puerto Viejo and it’s also our last day in Costa Rica. We arrived 37 days ago and spent our first two weeks in school.

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica; Day 2

After yesterday’s travel day we relaxed a little this morning. We all found the sleeping tolerable with no air conditioning. Still more hot and humid than we prefer but we got some sleep even with the howler monkeys doing their thing close by. We added a picture showing our two part house. Kitchen/living room/bath andContinue reading “Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica; Day 2”
