HAYWAY Episode 24 – Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica

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: 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.”

  1. I love to hear your podcasts again and again. Enjoy hearing your voices once again. You should start to think about putting it altogether in a book! It’s a collection of great encounters with a lot of interesting people with their stories and history. Write down your experiences; it worth doing, believe me. Writing a book (of course when you are back home) gives you two the opportunty to look back together on one of the best things you two did together until now. Can I order a copy, please?

    • Love it! I’m sure we’ll be inspired by your book when we get home. We’ll start thinking about what we could do. I feel right now as if we will sleep for a week when we finally put the bikes away at the end of this trip.
