Big Bugs

We are heading to Costa Rica this weekend! It will be the first time Marlin and I have have left Canada together (if you don't count a few small road trips to the northern US). I am very excited. I've been doing tonnes of internet research and of course, the best place to find photos is on flickr. There are gorgeous sunsets, beautiful beaches, colourful birds and then there is also this....

I think I will faint if this lands on my arm. Seriously. It makes my stomach turn just thinking about it. Hopefully these don't climb in through hotel windows, or crawl onto towels on the beach.

LOL! I don't think they roam free. My parents would have mentioned that. You are going to have so much fun!!! I'm happy for you!

*gulp* I am NOT a bug person. This picture makes me squeamish. Have fun on your trip!

you know what, when we were in Panama (we were only 45min from Costa Rica), we had beetles the size of my hand hitting our window at night, and stuck to the screen, don't even get me started on the spiders and snakes!!!!!!

have fun, my advice - wear boots!
