Life in El Tunco, El Salvador

Life in El Tunco, El Salvador

My final destination for this trip was the country El Salvador. In my research, i found out that El Salvador is one of the best countries for surfing with consistent waves year-round. The flight from Costa Rica was only one hour, and the country removed all entry restrictions. Going through immigration took only about five minutes, then I was ready to grab my luggage and get a taxi to my destination. Location El Salvador is a small country with around 6.5 million inhabitants. The stereotypical…

Working remote from Costa rica

Working remote from Costa rica

After my surf camp and hostel experience, i planned to move to my own apartment to work remotely for a month from Costa Rica. Airbnb I booked the Airbnb ahead of my stay in Costa Rica. The location was still in the same town called Tamarindo. On the map, the place was just two streets behind my initial destination. Little did i know that those streets are one of the most off-road streets in the town and that the second one had a steep incline. Luckily my friend from the surf camp drove me to my…

Escaping to Costa Rica

Escaping to Costa Rica

It's December 2021. During the last two years, i have been working as hard and consistently as never before in my life. The seemingly never-ending pandemic prevented me from doing extended periods of travel. I've not taken a single week of vacation other than a couple of days off during the last two years. I've put great effort into my job and in building my own business. While I was satisfied with the results, i was in urgent need of changing my daily schedule, which mainly consisted of work…

The apartment was on the 5th floor, which was the top floor of the building. It had a nice view looking over West LA. The only downside of the…

One month in Santa Monica / Venice

One month in Santa Monica / Venice

This post describes my experiences of staying in Venice for the first month of my planned trip of three months in Los Angeles. I traveled to Los Angeles from Tokyo, the flight took around nine hours. Arriving in LAX Airport and going through immigration, my initial experience with the American security officers was a little unpleasant, the officers were yelling and rushing the people through the security lines, very different experience from the security in Japan. After getting questioned about…

First week in Tokyo Japan

First week in Tokyo Japan

This post is a small recollection of my experience of the first week of my visit to Japan. I recently completed my study which consisted of working full time and going to school at some nights on weekdays. It was time for me to take a break from my daily work life. I've chosen to travel to Japan for three weeks to experience something completely different. I made the decision to visit Japan mostly because I've heard the culture is very unique and the food is outstanding, especially sushi, which…
