For the month of August 2014, I stayed in Villa Norma in La Garita, Costa Rica. The property itself is situated between
Alajuela, Turrucares, and Atenas… about 25 minutes away from San Jose Airport and 40 minutes away from San Jose Downtown.
I had posted a few photos from the property and some of my friends asked me if I was living in the jungle! Close enough I guess.. but jungles don’t usually have grocery stores or restaurants within walking distance.
Here’s a video I made showcasing the property for those of you who wondered where I’ve been for the past 30 days.
Before you take off to the beautiful beaches, tropical forests, or central valley of Costa Rica, here are a few things you should know about living and working here.
Here is my trip log from my recent trip across the country from Los Angeles CA to Asheville NC.
I invented a sport called Urban Hiking. It’s exactly what it sounds like.
I love hiking–and walking in general. I walk about 4-5 miles a day on average. It’s great for contemplating thoughts, catching up on phone calls, and also helps me stay trim.
Here’s the story of Team Awesome’s 20 mile urban hike from Glendale to Santa Monica.
The second day was when we became superstar hosts. From day 1 to day 2, after a good night’s sleep, I had transformed into a better looking, Jewish, long-haired Ryan Seacrest. It was nice to think so at least, because this was the day we were to appear on camera.
It was Jason’s first time in Los Angeles. Since our time together was limited, I took him on a fast-paced action packed weekend tour. Our mom was kvelling over her two sons getting to spend the weekend together, so to include her in the trip, we posted photo updates on Facebook of almost every place we visited.
Destinations included Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Beverly Hills, WeHo, Hollywood, Los Feliz, Griffith Park, Pasadena, Little Tokyo, Glendale, and Woodland Hills.
Here’s what happened when I went and saw the Jimmy Kimmel Live show in Hollywood CA…

Adventure Paul goes to his second NBA basketball game ever–Lakers vs Bobcats at the Staples Center.
My first job was to pass out appetizers–pork/sausage stuffed mushrooms and fried mozzarella balls. I was starving come 7pm because I arrived way too early to the event and ate way too early of a lunch that day. I immediately figured out that I could eat one appetizer off each tray before leaving the kitchen and space the rest of them out so no-one would notice. I started working very quickly, hurrying in and out of the kitchen and dispersing my appetizers so I could run back for more.
One of my missions while in Los Angeles is to hike at every green area on Google Maps within a 30 mile radius of L.A. So far I’m off to a good start. Check out some of the places I’ve been.

My plan was to try and sell a signed Adventure Paul photo to the Pawn Stars. Just like every other customer who are interviewed outside the pawn shop, I was going to say, “I aint taking a penny less than $8,000!” Then, like most of them, I’d accept next to nothing.
