Don’t ya just love conquering a fear? Shelley’s phobia was a bit of a weird one: the cute, furry, slow-moving, completely unthreatening mammals that are sloths. Tune into the How Are You? Where Are You? podcast to see if Shell could overcome her very own fear factor in Costa Rica.
Our bestie Terry the Tent has had a rough ol’ time of late. We fill you in on his trials and tribulations involving a frog.
All this and more as we take you on a bike trip across Costa Rica, up hill and down dale, scoffing down rice and beans and yelling out “Pura Vida!”
Clockwise from top left: the imposing Arenal Volcano; Baden deals with all sorts of mechanicals roadside; Shelley rides through banana plantations, harnessing wind power on Lake Arenal; and more bananas (they’re everywhere on the Caribbean coast).
Clockwise from top left: watching the World Cup final in a bar in Puerto Viejo on my laptop; Costa Rica has the coolest money (whack a sloth on there); the drummer from Sloth Leopard has only got one arm; Marco helps Shelley overcome sloth fears; Baden clutches a fresh baguette handed to him by a kind Costa Rican, “Pura Vida.”
