(Not) Preparing Our Trip To Costa Rica
Tina and I are going to Costa Rica from 4/6/09 to 4/19/09, for our friend Michael McVay’s wedding, but most importantly for surfing. I’m really excited because it’s going to be my first time in Costa Rica. Tina knows the country pretty well as she went there twice already.
We are about 2 weeks away from departing and we still haven’t found a travel bag for our surfboards. I’ve been looking on Craigslist and eBay but I haven’t found anything. Since I’m one of these guys always looking for a good deal, I’ll be looking online till the last minute and worst case scenario, I’ll buy a surfboard bad at a local surfshop here in San Diego.
The more I think about it, the more I realize I’m completely unprepared for this trip. Tina, as usual, has her shit together and is on top of it! She gets all the props for preparing this trip. I’m the type of person who don’t need to make plans. She’s the complete opposite, so I guess we balance out…
Some of my friends are asking me where we’re staying and I can’t even give them the name of a town where we will stay… I figure that I’ll learn the places once we get there. I have to shamelessly admit that when we went to El Salvador last year, I didn’t really know exactly where we were going but once we got there, I looked at the maps, talked to locals, and learned about the place on site.
