If you’d like to travel (or vicariously travel) to Costa Rica,

or if you enjoy reading or writing narrative nonfiction,

or if you want the inside scoop on self-publishing, this event is for you!

Costa Rica, home to some of the world's most attractive natural surroundings, is one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the Americas. Most visitors spend years saving up for the trip of a lifetime, but Joe decided to move there for ten months.

Joe brings his experiences to life alongside the history of the region as he travels throughout Costa Rica and its Central American neighborhood with stops in Panama, El Salvador and Guatemala. Xenophobic expatriates, delicious food, vibrant market scenes, an epic battle with Mothra, and inevitable culture clashes all make an appearance in Talking Tico, leaving readers with a new impression of this fascinating region.

Joe Baur is a travel writer, author, filmmaker, photographer, and podcaster. His work has appeared in a variety of international travel publications, such as BBC Travel and National Geographic, and he's authored three Falcon Guides guidebooks. After his 10 months in Costa Rica, Joe returned to Cleveland, where he launched the Without A Path travel podcast.  He continued his independent travel writing and filmmaking with trips to Ireland, Japan, Honduras, England, and Jordan. In 2016, he made the move abroad again, this time to Düsseldorf, where he’s continuing his independent travel work and working on his next book.
