As full time travelers, the main we question we get asked is – “How can you afford to travel permanently?” House Sitting is of course the answer!

What one gets out of their travels can be quite a personal experience. Some people travel to ‘find themselves’. Some people travel to experience different cultures and customs. Some people travel to see the wonders of the world or the iconic landmarks. And for some people, travel for the feeling of freedom it gives them.

My pre nomadic life wasn’t a bad one. I was content with the path I had taken. I was running a successful business that I enjoyed; I had a great relationship with my husband (although not technically married, after 14 years together and traveling non stop for 365 days together, ‘boyfriend’ doesn’t quite cut it); And we lived in a nice house in a nice neighborhood. Life was… nice.

They say your life can change in the blink of an eye. For us it wasn’t a blink of the eye, it was boarding a flight on a one-way ticket that completely changed our lives.
We had no idea we were starting a whole new phase in our lives as we boarded that flight from Perth to Los Angeles on March 5th 2012.

After a great first few days in Costa Rica (see Part 1) we continued our road trip around the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Day 3 After a good sleep we started the morning with a little walk around Tamarindo (Point C in the above map). The town is one of the touristy spots in Costa Rica. The local to tourist ratio was about one to one. The town had just started some road works so the whole town had dirt roads. It gave the town even more of a rustic feel. Judging by how hard they were working on the construction I expect that it may be a dirt road town for a fair while. After a nice tropical breakfast (amazing pineapple!) we finally got to see our first Costa Rican beach. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed. Now maybe our research wasn’t good, but we were expecting white sand beaches. The beach had dark grey sand. After some research we found out it has to do with the volcanoes and lava from a long time ago. The actual beach itself was nice. It was flat and easy to walk along, the water looked nice and there were beautiful palm trees hanging over the sand. Everything else was great, but there is something about having dirty feet after walking along the beach that doesn’t seem right. So after a short walk we got back to our room and typed “white sand beaches Costa Rica” into out trusty friend Google. Apparently there were a few around, with the closest one being Playa Conchal, which is also a ‘shell beach’. Not only was it going to be white sand, but it was named amongst the top couple of beaches in Costa Rica on various online websites and had amazing reviews. And online websites are always right. Aren’t they? (Maybe I shouldn’t joke about some online websites giving bad information, when we operate one that you guys are taking information from. Don’t worry all our information is fantastic. We promise!) So we made Playa Conchal our next stop. The beach is a little further north along the coast (near Point D on the above...
