Packing Lists and Accommodations in San Jose

It's about to get real

rain 15 °C

Today we made packing lists while waiting for Liz's car to get fixed at the Kia dealership (she had a clogged AC duct which was causing water to pour into the passenger side floor and the more it has rained, the more sopping wet the right side of the car was--yuck!).

We are trying to fit everything into two large day packs and a smaller carry-on so we will never have to check any luggage on our flights. Our deliberations have gone like this:

Do we really need towels?
I guess you're right. But we don't need toothpaste because they have that in other countries.
It's called pasta de dientes.
Sounds like something you can get at the Olive Garden.
Let's bring some just in case.

After a late night epiphany I realized I won't need these guys:


I just can't imagine carrying dress shoes in my backpack for the once a month occurrence when I might need them. So it's gonna be casual all the way.

And we booked our first two nights in San Jose, Costa Rica at the fabulously funky Galileo Hostel.

How can you ever go wrong with Galileo!! You've inspired us--if you can pack everything for 7 months in 2 day packs and a carry-on, we can pack for two months in what came with our motorcycles! I agree, the dress shoes are out.
Old Lee has dumped a lot of rain on us. Sorry about the auto flood. The adventure has begun.

You two should visit us while we are in Costa Rica! It's fairly cheap from Florida (only $200 from Boston).
And yes, two weeks until the beginning of a grand adventure!
