    Hope the travels continue well – try not to accrue any more roadkill. Good luck

      Hey Kim-Marie, great to hear from you. Yes, we are trying to minimise roadkill as cows and motorbikes don’t mix well at speed :)

    Loving your entertaining and informative travel notes and the supberb pictures. Should we retire to Costa Rica?
    Happy and safe travelling.
