Do Not Buy my New Gringo in Granada BOOK!

Do Not Buy my New Gringo in Granada BOOK!

Everything in the book can be found right here on this website and with pictures and the occasional video to boot. In a fit of missing Nicaragua I decided to compile all of my wordier posts from GiG into a short book for Amazon Kindle. If, for some reason, you want to waste $2.99 that you could otherwise spend on a cold Victoria Frosts at Bocadillos then follow this...

Visiting San Juan del Sur

Visiting San Juan del Sur

Despite living in Nicaragua for 6 months last year, we never made it to San Juan del Sur. But we are here now! Yesterday was our first day. We had beers and good food at Resturante Vivian then hit the beach where the kid’s mind was blown, since he’d never seen the ocean before, even in bay form. Later we had dinner at Restaurante El Timon where we had a nice outdoor view of the beach and enjoyed a great live band. Levi also got to dance with a Canadian grandma and mingle with her daughter and little 8-month-old granddaughter. Here’s some random pics of the...

I’m not really much of a “food blogger” since I’m not a pretentious snot, but I figured I should post these images of the delicious dishes we had at El Camello today.

We’ll start with an appetizer of pita and hummus:   Next, we have the Chicken Satay:   Here we have my favorite, Chicken Shawarma:   Aaaaand a Felafell Ball Sandwich:   Added bonus…a few other pics I took while...

Costa Rica: Day 2 – Museo de los Ninos

Costa Rica: Day 2 – Museo de los Ninos

Today we went to the Museo de los Ninos (Children’s Museum) in Costa Rica. This is a damn cool museum for kids and it is HUGE. It is built in the abandoned shell of the former Central Prison originally constructed in 1906. It contains several levels of interactive scientific awesomeness for kids to manhandle, thereby spreading countless amounts of germs around for other kids to coat their respective bodies in. Science! As an adult, the only complaint I have about the museum is that it is too damn big. It’s an unfortunate scientific fact that an adult’s level of “let’s get the hell out of here, already!” will be reached long before a child’s mind has been thoroughly nourished by a four story museum that takes roughly 3 hours to get through. Interestingly, the museum itself works as a demonstration of this fact! But I joke. It really is an incredible museum that does a great job of getting kids involved while actually teaching them something. Among the highlights:...

Costa Rica: Day 1

Costa Rica: Day 1

We booked a long weekend in San Jose, Costa Rica to renew our tourist visas. For those not in the loop, you have to leave the country for 72-ish hours every 90 days to renew your tourist visa if you are not a resident. We’re doing that in Costa Rica. We got into the airport after a short 35 minute from Managaua around 8:30 pm. The flight on Copa Airlines was quite nice for being so short. They even gave us all little beef fajita and peppers sandwiches and cookies! On arrival we exchanged some USD for Costa Rica Colon. This was a little baffling. We’re just really getting our heads wrapped around the USD to Nica Cordoba exchange rate. Just when we’re finally able to know without using a calculator what something like C$2,000 means in USD, now we have figure out something new! One good part to this is that Costa Rican money has pictures of animals on it. That’s pretty cool. We grabbed a cab to...
