Tale of 2 Volcanoes and 2 Expats - Our Life in Costa Rica Yr #2


We contacted The Bold Nomads (Tassie, Kevin and their 4 children) when they moved here back in September and our plan was to visit, however they live in Turrialba which is about 2.5 hours away by car. 

It just so happened that they were going to be in San Jose yesterday so we decided to catch the bus and meet them for lunch.

Earlier that morning we noticed that Volcan Turrialba (one of Costa Rica's largest volcanoes) was erupting as well as Volcan Poás (which is the volcano about 9 miles from us.

We can see them both from our house (not to be confused with "seeing Russia from my house" 😎)

We will definitely be getting together with them again soon.

Red Taxi Diaries - Our Life in Costa Rica Yr #2


I always say, one of the BEST things about Costa Rica is the PEOPLE!!!


On our Sunday taxi ride into town and (on our way to meet up with our friends to check out more jazz in San Ramon). Our friend Randall, and Red Taxi driver, explains that the Los Angeles road is decorated for a ceremony. 

So i jumped in the front seat and took some video.
