About Us

Have you have ever thought about selling all of your possessions and moving to another a country with only the bags that you can check in on your flight? If you have, then you might find our story interesting.

As entrepreneurs and travelers we discover a life that caters to both while we pave our own path with our young family. Over the pages of this blog we grow from a young couple into a family with kids, dogs, gardens and plenty of adventures that keep this life interesting.

We started this blog in 2007 to keep a digital journal for ourselves and as a way share our lives with our family members and friends whom we do not get to see that much.  Follow our family as we move from San Diego with our young child and dog to a small beach town in Central America. Five years later with a larger family of three kids and two dog’s we move again to Austin, Texas for a business opportunity.

Disclaimer: This should go without saying but  under no circumstances do we feel that in any way we are experts in the topics that we discuss here on Pura Vida Culture. For example we live in Costa Rica, but we are not experts on how to live or move, we only talk about how we did it. We love to organic garden and grow fish and chickens along with our vegetables, however we are in no way experts on organic gardening or aquaponics, we can only share what we have learned and how we do it.
