From Tiquicia To Patagonia

May 19, 2006

Congratulations to The Tico Times on 50 years of top-notch journalism in Central America. From earthquakes, landslides and police busts to adventures with my TT colleagues in the backwaters of Costa Rica, it was a time of great professional and personal growth for me.

I moved back to Canada and was the editor of the local weekly in our small town of Canmore, Alberta. And I married an Argentine mountain guide I met on the Pacuare River we now split our time between Patagonia and the Canadian Rockies, running a small tour company (www.patagoniatravelco.com). In between adventures in the mountains, I continue to do freelance writing and translating.

And plotting a way to get back to Costa Rica! Saludos de la Patagonia!
