SENSORIA COSTA RICA–THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

Tales of the Fountain of Youth have been recounted across the world for thousands of years. It first appeared in writings by Herodotus in the 5th century BC; then again in the 3rd century AD in the Alexander Romance, an account of Alexander the Great. It can be found in the Prester John stories of the early Crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries AD; and was very prominent among the indigenous people of the Caribbean during the early 16th century, who spoke of the magical powers of the water in the mythical land of Bimini. The famous Ponce de Leon, the first Governor of Puerto Rico, traveled to Florida in 1513 specifically to locate and claim it, as legend says it could restore youth to anyone. Unfortunately, he was mortally wounded by an Indian arrow before any discovery could be made, and the mystical baths were never located or revealed. So, you just knew, that on my birthday, as Father Time continues to chase me, I would be the one who finds it, beating hundreds of Explorers to the prize.

Getting Engaged in Costa Rica – She said YES!

I have never had any children, but I have about 100 nieces and nephews. Sydney and Hunter, are mine by blood, they are my sister’s kids and they are spectacular. I am a very proud Uncle. Then there are the other 98. Most of my friends have raised families, and theirs have all turned out great; they too, call me Uncle Mike. Over the years, dozens of them have come to visit me in paradise, and I always try to go out of my way to show them a great time. So, when I received a call this past week, about their upcoming visit, I went into action.
