It seems that for us, it is the end of one era, and the beginning of a new one. We have spent 6 years enjoying our time, figuring out how to live in Costa Rica. Now, fewer and fewer things are new to us, and so there are fewer things that seem worth blogging about. Some of our earlier observations and experiences are no longer current, and we don't always notice some of the things that we would have, if we had had our old "new" eyes.
While it was nice for a while to simply live - to be settled - we had gotten used to having challenges! Without those, life became a little stagnant. So, we're shaking things up (again) :-). Last year, we experimented with travel and with contract work. It seems to suit us, so we'll spend more of each year outside of Costa Rica. Costa Rica will still be home, and we'll maintain our residency here, but we'll spend a good amount of time elsewhere.
We're Vagabonds again!
