Talking Princess and The Toad - A Live (sorta) Ride Report from Costa Rica

Costa Rica here we come !!!

Well after about 5 minutes discussion and a 3 month wait. We packed our gear last night and head out this morning via Spirit Airlines to do some riding in Costa Rica.

Fully utilizing the "carry on" approach

Day 1 - "Gettin There"

Saturday, Jan 16 2010

Being knee deep in snow and only having 10 days off work, we opted to use the airport as our gateway to Latin America

We left Detroit this morning at "0 dark thirty" and after a plane change in Ft Lauderdale we arrived this afternoon in San Jose, Costa Rica. After an easy pass thru customs we jumped in a cab and headed off to our hotel for the night.

View from the cab (tomorrow we head into those mountains)

We had a little time to kill before picking up our bikes tomorrow from "Wild Rider" so we took a little walk around SJ... crossing the Pan American for the first time.. by foot.. not exactly as I imagined it.. but challenging to say the least.

We decided to head over to Wild Rider (cuz we is getting anxoius)

Then it was time for some refreshments and substanace

A few local brews

A couple local culinary platters

and then we get the bill


The good new is that included the tip

The better news is that came to like $20 USD

So its been a few Cervezas and a few more Cervezas and we are looking forward to tomorrow morning when we meet up with Thorsten from Wild Rider and pickup our bikes

Thats all for tonite from somewhere in San Jose, Costa Rica....

We'll try to keep up with the report as much as possible. Internet access and time permitting. So check back daily for updates from the road .

Buenos Noches Amigos
