Expat Life in Costa Rica

Costa Rica, The Good Life

by Kim Toltz –

Many of you have asked us about what it was like to up and move to a foreign country. Exciting. Scary. Surreal. Adventurous. Freeing. We are happy to say, almost eight years later we are still going strong and loving it more than ever.

However, people often think we love it because life is “perfect” and without any problems or worries. Far from the truth!

What Costa Rica has done, is force us to realign our priorities, and now those once seemingly “major” frustrations we used to continually experience in the US are no longer existent or even on the radar of the frustration scale. Life is just different here.

It has taught us to focus on what is truly important, to appreciate the little things in life, the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Faith, family, friends, outreach, living in the moment, appreciating the little things (like having the gas station not run out of gas) are what matters to us now.

The people are friendly, we do not have violent crime, the weather is perfect, the beauty of the country is amazing, and the new lifestyle is priceless!

So welcome to our lifestyle blog, where we will share what life is like in Costa Rica from day to day, those priceless funny “make you appreciate the little things” moments (that are sometimes not so funny in the moment – ha ha), the best bloopers and blunders, photos, adventures, etc.

Life is an adventure, let’s make the most of this crazy ride…

-Randy & Kim Toltz
