  • ALERT ALERT: CAN OFFICIALLY CONFIRM THAT SLOTHS ARE MASTER CLIMBERS

    ALERT ALERT: CAN OFFICIALLY CONFIRM THAT SLOTHS ARE MASTER CLIMBERS

    Sloths. Perezosos. Lazy One. Sloths get kind of a bad rep about being slow. But, I know one member of the Ramrod Team that emulates sloths in her climbing technique. It is true that climbing slowly is harder than climbing quickly, but (depending on the climbing circles of which you are a part) climbing quickly […]

  • Secret Beaches and Accidental Trespassing: A Manuel Antonio Adventure

    Secret Beaches and Accidental Trespassing: A Manuel Antonio Adventure

    Please pardon my missing a post last week, I had just returned from Central America to the United States and there were many transitions to be made all at once. Firstly, I spent the night in the Mexico City airport, decidedly NOT sleeping, so I was tired. Secondly, I had not the use of a […]

    I Went to the Jungle and Life Afterwards Was Different

    Sometimes a place really welcomes you. You can feel the resonance, and even if things go wrong or you make mistakes, overall things will go well and you´ll enjoy yourself.

Of course, the bus came […]

    What to Do When Your Phone is Stolen in a Foreign Country

    Don’t Panic- Take a note from Douglas Adams, and absolutely remain calm. You will do yourself no favors if you start freaking out in the middle of a crowded street- especially if you visually stick out the way I do in Costa Rica. My blondness does nothing to help me blend into the tan, dark haired […]

    I’m Okay with Being a Boogie Boarder

    You may remember that last week I injured my knee after half an hour of surfing, which was just fantastic. Since then, it’s become clear that the knee will not be making a hasty recovery and so instead of moping around about it for too long, I have turned to another method of having fun in […]

  • I’m In Costa Rica Where It’s Perfectly Acceptable to Wear a Bikini 24/7

    I’m In Costa Rica Where It’s Perfectly Acceptable to Wear a Bikini 24/7

    That’s correct friends, I am in the Central of America, where the sun shines for twelve hours a day no matter what and life is ruled by “Tico time,” which I think just means that everything is slower and later than you think it should or will be. Here, you really need to get up […]
