Awaking the next morning, Monteverde was exactly what a mountain lodge would be: chilly, dark, and wonderful. Plus, there was the most beautifully colored bird blocking the path outside of our rooms, without a care in the world but the scrumptious morsel he was trying to eat.
Last year, Karen contacted me twice to plan a trip internationally. The first time, I was still dating the ex and spending most of my vacation days traveling up north to see him, so I didn’t think I could spare an extended trip where I didn’t get to see him. I forgot about her asking me to travel and went about life. A few weeks later when Karen asked me again, I was single, heartbroken, and ready to say yes to getting the hell out of town. When I inquired where she was thinking of traveling to, she said she heard great things about Costa Rica.
Luckily enough, I have travel connections to make it happen.
I have returned home from Costa Rica where Karen and I had the most amazing time. We laughed as we explored the rain forest, made new friends (of both the animal and human variety), and bonded like we never have before. Over eleven days, we journeyed to five different cities, all celebrating Costa Rica’s success in the World Cup.
Greetings from Costa Rica!
I am currently exploring this wonderfully lush Central American country with my darling friend, Karen. This trip has been in the works for over nine months and we are thrilled that we are finally here and ready for any adventure that comes our way. We have only been in the country for two days and already we are filled with giddiness for this tropical place.
