I'm head chef in a yoga and surf retreat on the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. I love to spend time at the beach surfing, but find that a balance between the beach lifestyle and climate and that of the mountains and river is what makes me love this country so much. I like to spend time inbetween yoga groups at my home relaxing, working on the property and growing fruits and vegetables. The river has a tremendous energy and cleansing properties...and has even offered up the occasional trout or two! I highly recommend diving into the ice cold swimming hole below the property and then lying out on the gigantic black hot rocks to warm through.
I designed and built my house myself and take great pride in keeping it well maintained. I enjoy a few home comforts, when I am not working down in the jungle without electricity, so I may spend the odd afternoon watching some Premiership Football on the television from the hammock.
Freshly squeezed orange juice is a must in the morning from the abundant trees all over the property. Then bake some bread and head down to the river to see if I can catch some lunch. Pick some organic salads and herbs from the garden on the way up to the house. Put the kettle on...a nice cup of tea...and I'm set!
Its the simple things in life that count...I know what I like...and I like what I know!
