Once Christina arrived, we left our temporary home in paradise and exchanged stability in the tropics for life on the road again. We visited some utterly beautiful islands near Ko Phi Phi Don and...

Oh Ko Phi Phi, things started a bit rough here. Since we knew that we would be here for 2 weeks, we thought we would be smart and book a place in the cheapest hotel we could find so that we could...

Our time in Bangkok were spent primarily in the mall. Not really what you would expect of yourself, being an ecologist, coming to Thailand to be on a beach and write a book, but this is where we were...

Welcome to Thailand So like most dramatic changes, you get some culture shock. It takes some time to adapt to going from one side of the planet to another. Thailand and Costa Rica might both have...

Leaving Costa Rica was a sad affair. After 5 weeks there it really started to grow on us. The animals, the people and the nature in particular. I was also starting to really learn some Spanish. From...

Our last week before departure was a volcano study. We headed off from San Jose to Arenal area for 4 days and had a wonderful time. Clearly if you only have a week in Costa Rica you should spend it...

So after a really nice time with fuzzy cuddle monsters in Manuel Antonio, Laure and I went back to San Jose to meet with a consulate. We met with the consulate of Thailand, who was an incredibly...

So the adventure started before I even got onto the plane. The airline had a policy of not wanting to let anyone board without a return ticket because of fear that I might be rejected at entry and...

It's been a beautiful, but oh so testing 8 or 9 months of waiting for each other. We met in a fairy tale story. The kind you make movies about. On a train, in France. She was coming home from...

Where will the spinning stop when it has begun? A concoction of stress and joy, the thrill of the dive. Spinning 4 plates or more, pauses to consider, no room to falter - the ship flies too fast to...

Man, it's been excellent these last days, but also really intense. I'm managing to do a lot of good things, though there is also a great deal of learning and growth that is ocurring simultaneously.

Well, I had many other things to post about. Personal developments, leaving Amsterdam and how that felt, further thoughts from the last posts about "Patterns" etc. But instead I have bad...
