I signed up for my trip to Costa Rica at the end of January! I was stalling, but then my son sent me a promo code for 200$ off so that sent me over the edge into commitment. Also I got a good deal on the flight over. All in all, it cost me a bit less than 2400$ for just over 2 weeks.
Ah...The good farther. We can always depend upon you to schedule a midwinter escape from the clutches of the Canadian Shield.
Swimmer is a big fan of Costa Rica and has been twice, doing an 'exchange' each time, working part time and touring part time. She loved it and natters on endlessly about returning. I tend to beg off her invitations to join her in another return because I consider it to be too damned close to the equator. It's jungle, for crepes sake. I've heard the climate at the coast described as stultifyingly humid and cloyingly sweaty (by her), but she assures me that the middle elevations where she spent most of her time were like nice summer days here...year 'round. I remain unconvinced. Go...Have fun. Get hot and sweaty in January. See if I care.
Meanwhile...We got a new set of offers from one of our small boat tours outfit on both the Rhone (eastern France) and the Adriatic (Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro), slashing the prices yet again. The thing is, we would need to commit by Halloween, and I don't see my traveling companion as being willing, nor particularly able, to make that commitment now. She is just breaking free of the itty bitty kitty committee responsibility she took on recently, and she now has ten hens that are laying (but will slack to complete cessation soon).

A lovely, warm place to visit! And get out of those winter blues.
Just watch out for snakes.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
