  1. When I lived in Spain, I made the mistake of hanging out mostly with Americans. Heck, I was only 19 and didn't know any better. When i moved to Germany, I promised myself that I would not do that again. Many people warned me off the "cold" Germans and that i would regret it. Boy, were they wrong! I found that if I made the effort to speak German and just try to get to know people, the natives opened up and were very, very, very friendly. Heck, one was so friendly I married her! ;-) So, when I come to Costa Rica, I intend on repeating my Germany experience. It makes life so much more fun! And once again, thanks again for all the great info!
  2. Thanks for the replies, everyone! I look forward to getting down there next year. I can speak passable Spanish. Studied it for quite a few years and lived in Spain for a year. It's rusty as hell though. I did surprise myself at how it came back when I was down there, but there are LOTS of holes in my knowledge. I'll just go out and start talking! That's really the only way I have found for learning the local lingo. For me, at least. My wife is another story. No Spanish at all, but since she learned English as a second language (she's German), I'm sure she'll do just fine. Muchisimas gracias y hasta la proxima vez! Bob Maguire
  3. Hello all. My name is Bob Maguire. I currently live the DC area with my with my wife Margit. We've been kicking around the idea of moving to Costa Rica for at least a year. Even went down there last year and took in one of Tim Lytle's tours (Hi, Tim!). Well, we've finally decided to make the jump to Pura Vida and will probably be in Costa Rica the middle of 2017. We also just joined the ARCR. Between their resources and the ARCR forum, I'm sure our move will be relatively smooth. I'm retired military (25 years US Navy), so I have plenty of experience with moving and living overseas. We are really excited at the idea of moving to a new home in a beautiful country. We're ready for the challenges. Just wanted to say hello to all. Bob Maguire Frederick, MD
