Taking this trip to Costa Rica I have poured over the internet for information about our destination. Although I have more questions than answers about our destination, the one thing I can say for sure is that it appears to be impossible to take a bad photograph of the country. Volcanoes, beaches and wildlife beyond belief seem to be in every direction and even the sunlight cast a more flattering light on the people and places. If the country and people are half as friendly and welcoming as they are purported to be, I can tell I’m in for two weeks of very needed perspective expansion and resetting.
Every travel experience I have had previously has served to offer life altering perspective on my life. Things that seemed to be high drama are often recast by the light of other cultures and location. High stakes issues often seem laughable after seeing that the world does not actually revolve around my singular set of circumstances.
