We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.

Remember when I deemed this the year of travel? Well, I now have Costa Rica stamped thanks to a special friend! I sipped cacique (sugar cane liquor) with Guaro Sours and allowed the waves to take me wherever they choose.

I didn't know what to expect from one of the most biodiverse environments in the world. I was amazed by the vast amount of life and different manifestations of energy from the ocean, the wildlife & welcoming weather. Costa Rica taught me about the art of being still. I'm an ambitious woman & I naturally feel the need to be in constant motion or what most call "busy work" but I've learned that not all movement is good unless it's intentional. 

I'll be creating a detailed travel wishlist soon with more locations filled rich cultures & adventures. 

Once again I want to thank the wonderful gentleman for inviting me on this trip.
