Must come to an end? Hell no! Man oh man my time is just about up in Costa Rica. I’m here at Gold’s Gym working off the abundance of rice, beans and plantains. Its become a regular part of my everyday diet since my arrival.
I’m leaving this beautiful country in a few hours and felt the need to take one final walk. I happened to bump into the gym and took it as a sign. Lol. This moment is magical because I’ve got my tunes, a cool breeze and my favorite elliptical machine. I’m good. It’s the small things mi amigos!
Day 4 was filled with lots to see and talk about. The problem is I don’t feel like typing it up in an eloquent fashion. Needless to say, I’ll list my most precious memories below.
– Took a bus tour to see Irazu Volcano
– 13 passengers on the tour / No comment other than I didn’t come here to be surrounded by fellow Americans
– Met a couple from California (Bay Area) which was exciting because I’m planning to move there in a few months
– My inappropriate attire (gym shorts and a t-shirt sigh…. Let’s just say it was a bit chilly atop the volcano. I wasn’t thinking lol)
– Fog and lots of it
– Walking along the volcano crater but unable to see it due to the fog
– Rainy day but oddly it added to the beauty of the farms and botanical garden
– The Costa Rican meal was delicious
– The actual bus ride through the town of Cartago
– Visiting a Catholic Church
– Visiting the ‘Ruins’
– Dinner with Keitsa
– Hotel Kekoldi
– Shopping at the supermarket
As this vacation comes to an end, I challenge myself to find joy in the daily routine of life. Don’t slip back into the coma of habitual behavior. Actually, find a way to deter from the routine as often as possible. Be present and most importantly live daringly!
