Life in a wealthy, major metropolitan city built on oil and gas, has its downsides. Traffic. Noise. Keeping up with the Joneses. It’s enough to drive an ordinary family mad. After years of dreaming about an escape to paradise, we’ve decided to make it reality and are packing up for a year-long adventure in Costa Rica.
I am an award-winning journalist with a major Canadian daily, which has graciously given me a year of unpaid leave. My husband is an assistant principal of an elementary/junior high taking a sabbatical. Our kids are three and five and addicted to TV.
Come along for the ride as we move from Calgary, Alberta, a city of more than one million, with our kids to a developing, Spanish-speaking country on a journey aimed at finding perspective and balance.
