Behind the Design: Endangered Coral Reefs

One design that we’ve chosen to print on our line of upcycled clothing, is of a piece of coral with the words, “Let Me Live”. This graphic carries a very important message that we’d love to discuss here, and share the inspiration behind creating it. Living close to the ocean has given us daily appreciation…

Raising and Hatching Bantam Chickens

We have many goals to become more self-sustainable by producing instead of consuming. One way to do that is have a flock of yard birds that are producing daily eggs. Bantam chickens are smaller versions of standard chickens, and come in a variety of breeds – just miniature! They are about 1/5 to 1/4 the…

Learning to “See” in a Figure Drawing Class

Last week we were delighted to attend a figure drawing class with a live model, hosted by the talented artist Susan Adams who is based here in Costa Rica, as well. It was a small and intimate gathering of creatives with different life drawing experience levels who came together for the relaxed two-hour class. Held…

Rio Celeste is not far from Liberia airport, heading towards Arenal Volcano, in the Tenorio National Park. Most of the drive is on paved roads except for the last stretch after reaching the park…

Super Healthy Tropical Smoothies: Part I

One of the best things about living in the tropics is the abundance of fresh, local fruit. I had never tried many of the local tropical fruit before moving here, and now I can’t imagine life without these sweet, exotic and best of all – HEALTHY! – treats. Costa Rica is a hot spot for…

Camping on a Volcanic Island In Nicaragua

So we decided to take a little trip to Nicaragua. Actually an island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua called Ometepe. It was formed by two volcanoes rising from the center of the lake. The lake itself is the largest in all of Central America and drains into the Caribbean Sea via the San Juan River.…

Sea Hippies Mobile Boutique

No matter where we are, we are constantly thinking of ways to improve existing businesses’ visual appeal. It’s just how we think. At restaurants we want to redesign menus, when searching for hotels we notice ways they could improve their websites. We also think of new business ideas of our own quite often that we…
