When we think about tropical all-inclusive holidays, it's often done with the filter of escaping from another one of Canada's harsh winters. While that will always be a popular time to hit the beaches down south, it will also always be one of the most expensive times to travel to warmer climates.
I captured a picture of these two beautiful creatures during a casual visit to the Calgary Zoo this summer. It caught my eye that they are almost forming a heart together.
Hot, hot heat is exactly what my body craves. This, a fact I found to be true the very first time I stepped off a plane in Costa Rica. The wall of thick, sticky calidity that greeted me on that tarmac served as welcome to both body and soul. And now, in true easy-breezy Costa Rican style, I present a delightfully simple treat, a true taste of the tropics, my coconut-apricot chews.
