Welcome to Rob's Journeys Web Site

Costa Rica 2005

It is now 2010 and I have decided to add some details of trips made in earlier years.  This means that the details of the trip are not given and only a selection of photographs displayed.

This trip was made in February 2005.  A journey by road from the rainforest on the eastern coast , the volcanic regions in the center before travelling to the rainforests of the western shores.  My main means of recording was by video and is not suitable for this web site.

A selection of photographs.
