Drive. Plane. Plane. Miss flight... ughh... then take a really sketchy 10 passenger plane to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. But the payoff is definitely worth it. Boats of all kinds dot the sea as I stand on the shore looking out to an ocean that is not natural to me. Local artisans ask if I'm interested in their work, but right now I'm simply soaking in the view. The perfect blend of relaxation and adventure placed between finishing up another year of school and starting my internship.
The trip was colorful. From exploring volcanoes to practicing my broken Spanish on the beach, everything fell into place. I try not to plan too much when I leave the country. It takes away from the thrill that a spur of the moment adventure can bring. A refined man is wild at heart... and I live by that beat everyday. Now all that is left for me is to charge up for the exciting summer that is about to begin.
