It’s been 3 weeks since I returned from my first solo, international adventure in 16 yrs. Costa Rica called out to me as I sought to find a place to start my new beginning.
We traveled to Costa Rica nearly 8 years ago to celebrate our 6th anniversary. The year before we had skipped our annual anniversary trip as we went to India for the first time to spread my Dad’s ashes, so it seemed fitting the following year to follow his footsteps to Costa Rica.
Dad loved the “pura vida” lifestyle and had big dreams to spend more time there in his retirement. Unfortunately, his retirement came forced and he passed away just 8 mos after he “retired,” so he never got to fulfill his Costa Rica dreams.
