  • It’s 5 o’clock somewhere (actually here at the tiki bar) and the kids are with Grandparents. 👍🌴
  • Pay attention to the moments and places that give you wonder, this is your opportunity for awe.
•
Awe increases tolerance for uncertainty which is pretty important in travel and life.
•
Awe also shapes our sense of time. One series of studies found that awe made time feel more plentiful, which increased life satisfaction, willingness to donate time to charity, and preferences for experiences over material products.
•
Now go find something, someplace or somebody that gives you goosebumps.

  • We definitely love wandering.
•
“No matter what your routine: a daily practice, a miracle morning, a lot of money, love, family, fun - life happens.
•
90% of happiness comes from choice, only 10% comes from circumstance.
•
The wanderer surrenders to the 90%, not the 10%.” #activefamilies
  • What do you do when you’re all alone on the beach witnessing hundreds of Olive Ridley turtles hatching at daybreak while just as many vultures surround them?
•
Honesty we were a bit in shock at first. Like typical Americans we excepted something like this to be protected or at least have somebody more knowledgeable than us tell us what to do.
•
But it was just us, the turtles, and the vultures. As soon as we stepped away from one area the vultures would dive in and start their feast.
•
So we focused on a group of about 20 and took turns taking them closer to the water. Even then, the vultures would follow. It really was true Animal Planet but we managed to get them all down and in the water.
•
By 6am more tourists starting arriving and now we were seasoned turtle experts. 😂 We showed people where to find and help the turtles stuck in the low tide rocks as vultures and now dogs dipped in and grabbed them.
•
Truely an amazing experience and a bit unnerving that we couldn’t help most of them.
  • One of the hard parts of nomadic travel is always having new neighbors that might be on different schedules or have different interests.
•
Unfortunately for us not everyone goes to bed at 9 and wakes up at 6 except fellow surfers and these howler monkeys.
•
We were all a little tired this Monday after 3 nights next to our new American neighbors and their 2am drunk talk outside our windows. 🙉

  • @kbikesurf going for the tube. 🏄Beautiful afternoon at Playa Avellanas. Only a few days left to soak up the Pura Vida.
  • Most of us are suffering some level of swimmer’s ear so today we went inland to see wildlife, hike and chase waterfalls. It was a fun adventure and chance to do something a little different. Isn’t this guy beautiful! 📷: @randycharrette
  • Surf comp with @tideacademy today. The conditions weren’t ideal but it didn’t stop any of these kids from having fun.
