Next week I will embark on a weeklong trip to Costa Rica. Beyond being extremely excited, I am anxious to get this thing they call work over with and board my flight to San Jose, CR. The unique thing about this trip is that it will not be my first time paying a visit to this beautiful country known for its lush flora and fauna, it’s ecological culture and…. COFFEE beans (gulp).
A few months back, my boyfriend and I were discussing our next vacation spot – we decided to individually choose our top three locations and then narrow down from there. The requirements were:
1. Neither one of us must have already visited the country
2. It had to have summer-like weather conditions and access to a body of water/sandy coastline.
After much deliberation, discussing the negatives and positives of each we were unable to come to an agreement. At that very moment, we looked at each other and uttered, “Costa Rica”. Bingo! Having previously experienced this magical place was enough to convince us to come back. Really, absolutely no convincing was required.
There are very few words that can be used to give a true depiction of this amazing place. So, instead, I’ve decided to paint this picture using…. well, pictures. Enjoy!
