Story

This year I will be taking on the challenge of traversing Costa Rica under my own steam. The crossing will take me on bike, foot, raft and kayak across this spectacular natural wilderness through farmlands, foothills and mountainous regions reaching the peaks of the Central Highlands. On slippery and poorly defined trails, with several river crossings. I will encounter indigenous settlements deep in the cloud forest and hope to glimpse rare wildlife and birdlife in this pristine tropical rainforest. The views and terrain vary greatly as I traverse the mountainous backbone of Costa Rica. The journey will take me into the depths of the Pacuare River on one of the world’s classic whitewater experiences, where I undertake an exhilarating rafting trip with class 2‐5 rapids through a series of spectacular canyons. In between the powerful rapids there is time to absorb the superb surroundings and the tropical rainforest. I will then leave the rapids and gorges behind as I ease my way by sea kayak along a much slower moving section of the river, through banana plantations to the goal: the Caribbean coast.

Such a trek and adventure shouldn't be done for nothing. So for this instance I am raising money for Rough Diamonds Dog Rescue. They are a non- profit volunteer animal rescue dedicated to rescuing dogs and Cats who are homeless, sick or to young to survive on the streets. please show your support by donating what you can thank you. For more information on this very worthy cause please like and share their facebook page. thank you!
