Where I stayed
Hi there again, sorry about the gap. I never really felt inspired to do it but right now I have some extra time on my hands so I thought that I might as well do some writing
for my blog. Now that I have so much time I'm going to write a very thorough blog which will have a lot of detail in it so don't get fed up.
On February the sixteenth we moved from the bamboo house to our new home in Casa Beba. It was near my birthday so I had it up in Casa Beba. It is a little higher than Finca Ipe. It has a very nice pool - it is small but we really like it. The house however is quite BIG and I have my own bathroom and play room which means I have the whole upstairs, COOL!!!
There is a very nice garage
Then there is my room upstairs with a queen size bed, a bathroom with a shower (but no hot water because we have the hot water tank turned off) but still it's a very nice shower (although I have never had a shower in it! I use the shower in my parents room because it has hot water). My play room has two single beds in it (one on each wall) which makes it ideal for sleep overs (although I have never had a sleep over “I hate sleep overs”).
Downstairs in the living room is a big TV. There is no cable, which is OK because I'm usually outside. This is good and I don't want that to change. The TV is in a cement structure. To the left of the TV divided by a cement wall are some shelves. On the bottom shelf is a DVD / CD player and on the
other shelves we store Cd's and the occasional music video. Below the TV and shelves there two book shelves divided in half to make four shelves which we use for books. On the floor, under these shelves there were some big clay pots.
The living room has one sofa, a coffee table and two arm chairs all of which are made of bamboo
is a walk-in closet and my parents bathroom is on the and straight ahead is the main bedroom. On the right is a queen size bed with a head board. Above the bed are three Windows - these windows are bigger then the ones in the living room and to the left are some sliding doors.
Just a great house to live in, isn't it?
Moving in was a breeze for me - all I had to do was go to school at 11:00 o'clock - easy as can be
The house is great for us. I have my own room so we all get better sleep ,yahoo! We had so much stuff that had accumulated at Finca Ipe that it took my parents four trips to bring up to the
Our new house is located in a place called Colinas Pacificas. It has lots of jungle around it and lanes that are surrounded by lush and sometimes smelly jungle. The walk feels like paradise - it's a walk to dream of, and guess what? I walk it every day for school.
Our neighbors, Alex and Oren live just up from us. Oren and my dad like to go surfing and they have lots of fun. Sometimes my dad leaves so early that I get up after he leaves, which means he leaves before 7:00 o clock, on those days I don't see him till he comes home.
Teleport to the United States of America! Fort Lauderdale:
Latitude: 26.08721036078545Longitude: -80.13427734375
Probably not what you were expecting. Just felt like throwing it in, but we do fly through Fort Lauderdale on Spirit Airlines
Las Vegas Latitude:35.935319310241674
We stayed in the EXCALABUR hotel it is AWESOME and if you are not into knights in shining armor there is always Paris or there is the Treasure Island. On your way to Italy I suggest Venice. To New York? No problem there's New York, New York. From our room you could see the New York New York roller coaster cool! We got into LAS at 11:30 pm and we went to bed just after midnight. In the morning we ate breakfast in the Sherwood Cafe then we went to the airport to go on to Vancouver Island on West Jet. Guess what? We got seat back TV, great! I had a lot of fun watching our progress.
Teleport to: our house in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada Latitude:48.44955789421332
April 16 we arrive in BC. Situated at the end of Wordsworth street it is a perfect place to play on bicycles and Rollerblades. My grandpa loves to bicycle and so do I. We go around and around and around on our bikes. We go down to the park and up again, do a few laps around the culdesac and down to the park again until we can't ride any more.
I have a friend named Zachary, he is sometimes a little annoying, but he is still a GREAT friend.
We love to ride our bikes together up and down the street, sometimes we set up obstacles and I go through like a pro and after I'm done he goes through and hits them all with his city bike
Calgary's latitude is 50.96073322984468.Longitude-114.0380859375
There was so much snow on the highway going over the mountains, Calgary was snowed in. It was May 2nd! We celebrated my dads 44th BIRTHDAY on the 18thof April. Time to head home to Costa Rica. We are going to fly on WestJet to LAS.
Teleport back to the United States of America!
LAS International Airport.
On the way back we didn't stay over night in a hotel but we did leave the airport once to walk to the Spirit check-in counter. It was closed because we were really early so we got some diner at a restaurant up above the check-in area. When we were done eating diner we checked in and went on to security
and San Jose is at latitude 9.936928733095229
Costa Rica, as I think every one knows, is much closer to the equator. In San Isidro a very nice lady that we know named Sabina picked us up at the bus terminal. We loaded our bags into her car and went home. Max came too because he missed me and wanted to hear about Canada. On the half hour drive home I told him about Canada briefly of course, and then I almost fell asleep. But when we got home I was as perky as if I had just had a cup of coffee. My dad thinks the Spirit Airlines waiting room is like a school portable. The restrooms can't handle the demand so don't drink too much coffee. The seats on the Spirit airplanes are so close together that any one bigger than 6 feet is going to be squished and is going to be wishing they had chosen West Jet.
The next day after we got home we discovered that the pool was as green as grass, Eduardo (the gardener) was supposed to be cleaning it (suspicious)
now does it? as long as he keeps working I'm OK with that. It is June 27th and Eduardo didn't come today, strange I'm wondering if we are loosing him again.
Our location is latitude 9.288260443270762
Today is Thursday July 15th two days ago Eduardo's kids came up and I played with them until it was time for them to go home. Afterward I walked them home with Shasta our dog.
You're probably wondering where we got a dog? Well, to answer that question we go back before the time I played with Eduardo's kids, quite a bit before that. Well my mum was up at
Alex & Oren's place feeding their dogs and a strange dog kept eating their dog's food. So my mum brought the dog down to our house and we adopted this dog and named her Shasta. The day after we named her Shasta we took her into the vet to have her spade. But we couldn't have it done because she was anemic so we gave her pill's and a week later took her in and this time we had her spade with no problems. And that is how we got Shasta.
I am finally finished my blog. For more travel stories, see my other Blogs on Nicaragua and Costa Rica
good luck traveling.
