A Travellerspoint blog


guest blog from pops

As I hug my son out in the lineup at Guinnoes my heart is filled with joy. As a parent this adventure has swung to many emotions during the past seven months. A trip that was hatched here in Costa Rico last january is almost complete. The blogs, calls, and e-mails are now replaced with stories told firsthand from the road. These stories have one thing in common, that is the great friendships Nick has made with so many wonderful people. Laura and I want to take this time to send out heartfelt thanks for all of you and you know who you are THANKS THANKS THANKS! So much of his joy comes from the people he has met while traveling. Those of you who have kept Nick in their thoughts while he was gone thank you as well. While there have been times we have questioned our sanity for offering this experience the payoff is without question tremendous. The boy who left on August 2nd is now a mighty fine young man with a presence of a man to be reckoned with. Expect some great things from Nick Fairman and remember how your interaction with my boy has shaped his future, again thanks. There are some personal notes to be sent by us but to all of you our house will always be opened. To be sure this is something Laura and I are looking forward to. Now I have the pleasure to take a Costa Rican roadtrip with my favorite American ambassador, can't wait to create a few stories from the road with my main man.

Wish I was in Guiones with y'all hearing Nick's stories first hand. Please keep in touch and remember, y'all have a place to crash in Pacifica (beach town 15 miles south of San Francisco) whenever you want! Come out for Reggae on the River this year! 1st weekend in August. Thanks again for the ride to the airport in Liberia last January! Tons of love, KR
