Exploring San José

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.
