After a bus, a ferry, a taxi, another bus, walking over the boarder and another taxi we finally got to San Juan Del Sor in Nicaragua after traveling about ten hours from Santa Teresa.

Wasn´t the cleanest place but we met a lot of cool people and during the day we hung out by the beach which was 50m from the Hostel. I know there is many sunset pictures of this place but the sunset is magical!

So unbelievable beautiful!

And wait a second, we didn’t mention that Veronica actually left us!! She went to Flordia on wednesday! It is so weird not having her around after so many months together. But we`ll meet her again back in California in a couple of weeks. She is visiting some friends and we`re still going trough central america. We`ve found ourselves a new traveling companion, Rachel from the US. She was one of the people we met hitchhiking from Puerto Viejo, and guess what! Together we have left Costa Rica today…

Santa Teresa

It`s funny to think about how things work out in the end. Yesterday we woke up the forth day in Puerto Viejo and I can’t lie about how badly we hated staying in that place when the whole thing was filled to its limits, because it is the holiday. (200-300 people?) It was fun up till one point. So we got up, and we got out as fast as we could. And when we got to the bus stop we realized there was no busses leaving Puerto Viejo that day. So there was just one thing to do -hitchhike! After some time we saw another girl doing the same, and we asked her if we should hitchhike together. But she wasn’t alone! Suddenly we were nine people who were desperate to leave the town. And that turned into a fun cab ride back to San Jose and we decided to check in to a hostel together. Some of us are traveling together from now on too! But some had to leave back to the states, but our paths will cross again we hope when we`re in California. So, this morning we left San Jose for Santa Teresa in the pacific coast. And we love this place! Peaceful, a lot of backpackers and we get to surf all day.

This is the place in Puerto Viejo (well some of it).

We`ve now stayed a couple of days here in Costa Rica. So far we`ve been in San Jose and then we travelled down the east coast to the backpacker town Puerto Viejo. We live in the most famous hostel in this area called Rocking J´s, which is a huge hostel where you can rent tents, dorms or hammocks. We have been sleeping in hammocks with about hundreds of other backpackers! Its been a challenge getting to sleep longer in the morning, but easy to fall asleep since we`ve been partying every day since we came! I am gonna show some pictures of this place later on, IT`S HUGE! During the day we`ve just been cycling around, surfing and met a lot of cool people. Heres some pictures of todays surfing!

This tree is called the “justice-tree”, and its protected by parasites which lives inside it. The tree is called justice-tree because womans who cheated on their husband was tied to the tree and got eaten alive by the parasites. If you look closely you’ll see the parasites.
