Cruising the Caribbean: Finding Waves on Central America’s East Coast

Exploring the Caribbean side of Costa Rica & Panama, and finding waves no one talks about…

It was July, and we were in Pavones: home to the “best waves in Costa Rica”, and the longest left-breaking wave in the world, so legend has it. Our expectations were high, we had arrived in the dark with our surfboards, unprepared for the lack of services but looking forward to the famous wave. Pavones is a cute town on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, and a place where talk constantly revolves around the subject of waves (my kind of people).

Quinoa with Basil Pesto

Recipes

I was surprised at how easy and amazingly delicious this recipe was. It’s a great, simple and quick meal for anyone following a plant-based diet or anyone who likes quinoa and wants to be healthy. Most of the ingredients are easy to find in most countries, and a lot can be swapped out for others. If you like nuts, feel free to add pine nuts to the pesto, it also works fine without though. Tastes great with a chunky salad on the side (carrots, tomato’s, basil, cucumber, radish etc.) Enjoy!

Lima’s Flower Display Celebrates Semana Santa and the Beginning of Spring

Culture

Semana Santa, or Easter Holy Week, is one of the most celebrated festivities in Peru. The country has been Catholic since the 15th century Spanish invasion, but has a much longer history of practicing ritual and tradition. If it were even possible for Peru’s bustling capital to become even busier, Semana Santa is the week when it does. Whilst this can be a problem when you’re trying to buy flowers and the queue is longer than the street you’re on, there are ways Peruvians celebrate this occasion which are delightful and surprising. The flower display in Surco is particularly striking, and represents Lima’s appreciation for the Catholic faith, as well as an ability to organise a social event in style.

A Day in the Life: Karma ⇔

Karma derives from ancient Indian philosophy, and is defined as “the universal causal law by which good or bad actions determine the future modes of an individual’s existence.” I often wonder about karma, and how it functions in my life. When too many bad things happen sequentially, I start to wonder.. am I bad person? I am often unusually lucky also, and people have noticed and commented on my so called ‘luck’ before. But does this make mean a ‘good’ person? Or do things just happen?

A Day in the Life: Synchronicity ∞

Lifestyle

There is one aspect of life which is proving magical for me every day a the moment, and that is synchronicity. wonderful wonderful synchronicity. what some people call ‘coincidence’, I call the universe unfolding exactly as it’s supposed to, just like a miracle. every day an incredible synchronicity occurs which proves yet again that the cosmos is an unexplainable vortex of energy, crashing and colliding, with the occasional crystal clear harmonious happening.
