adios to pura vida, hello to the 9-5

I've had a wonderful 6 days in costa rica, but ready to go back to the us of a, where the roads are wide and meals are fast. I can't say I'll miss the "pura vida" pace of life, but I think these costa rican/american ex-pats are definitely enjoying life.

1. Ziplined over waterfalls w/ volcano as a backdrop
2. Rode horses through mountains, creeks, and treess
3. Soaked in volcanic hot springs
4. Surfed in manuel antonio
5. Sister and I got matching tattoos... I mean, matching sunburns.


Muchas gracias, costa rica! Pura Vida!

my favorite costa rican meal

Honestly, costa rica is a tourist trap. Think "hawaii meets central america." This place is beautiful: rain forest meets beach meets volcano. Tons of fun/humid/lush excursions/activities. My only complaint is the comida tipico is well... TYPICAL. However! While in arenal, my travelling partna/sister came across the most scrumptious black beans of ALL TIME. If I could eat a bowl full of these black beans I would. You might be thinking, they're just beans! I tell you, these are no ordinary frijoles! They r magical! *dreamy*

The simplest things make me so happy. Mmm frijoles. Si, por favor!

cigars and costa rica

Our fourth night in costa rica, and we are being rained out. So we grabbed some cervezas, cigars and sat outside the room to watch some arrested development. Pura Vida!

I can't remember the last time I wore tennis shoes as every day wear, but I've been admiring these classics for awhile now. The only question is, with or without socks???

too fast

I need time to slow down. Three more hours for sleep, two more hours for exercise, one more hour for cooking, and one more month to visit my loved ones. Whoever can make that happen deserves a high five.
