Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Costa Rica hostel

Breakfast of champions: banana pancakes, coffee, fresh fruit, and twitter

I got in late to the Juan Santamaria Airport in San José, Costa Rica. I booked a room at the Alajuela Backpackers Hostel. I got in late and disturbed my roommates as I fumbled with getting undressed and on top of my bunk bed. Thankfully, I had a headlamp, so I did not need to turn on the room lights.

Once I awoke in the morning you would think I would be motivated to get out and start the adventure. Not so fast: the hostel had amazing coffee, free wifi, and banana pancakes and fresh fruit. Time to decompress from the day of flying and chill a bit first before it was time to explore.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
