A little less than six months ago I went on a fabulous honeymoon to Costa Rica, planned by my amazing husband. He tried to keep it a surprise, but failed miserably. He also knows what my tastes are and upgraded us to the "Royal Package" complete with our own personal 24 hr on-call concierge! I had an absolutely fabulous time and would go back in a heartbeat. (Especially since I was under the weather until Tuesday.
We stayed for 7 days at the Paradisus Playa Conchal (which is, upon searching for the link, now the Westin Playa Conchal) in Guanacaste,Costa Rica. We stayed in the Royal Service section which is adults only, with a private bar, pool, and restaurant. While we had access to the rest of the (huge) resort, it was nice to walk downstairs to peace and quiet. The service was top notch and left you wanting for nothing. If I could make one recommendation, it would be to do more out of resort activities. We did a few, but there were so many parts of Costa Rica to explore. Also, make sure you pack your sunscreen. They have plenty of on-resort shopping, but a can of Banana Boat sunscreen spray was almost $20!!! )
The amazing view on our top-floor suite balcony.
The shallow end of the private pool.
Swim-up bar (and a speedo.)
We were upgraded even more when we arrived. (Thanks travel agent!) This balcony spanned the entire length of the suite. This is one side...
...And a stone hot tub on the other!
Inside the suite (comfortable sitting area)
One of two bathrooms.
Tub and sinks.
Some amazing views.
This post will also be a two-parter. Stay tuned!

So, back in this entry I described the current Warhammer campaign that my good friend Marius has been running. Since I FINALLY got around to getting a new camera charger, I have a plethora of photos that I've been waiting to share. Here are some of the accumulated battle shots. There are a lot so I will post them in batches in separate posts. Enjoy, fellow nerds!
