My entire hike through the jungle over the 22 hanging bridges, I was determined to spot one of the poisonous snakes that are native to Costa Rica... And after the final hanging bridge, there was a viper nestled in the bushes. My blog on living your best list in Costa Rica; without a beach, is now live. Click the link in my bio 😘
If you followed my stories over the weekend, you were able to accompany me on my first trip to Costa Rica. Since my resort was so close to the Arenal Volcano, one of the ten most active volcanos in the world, there were several natural hot springs in the vicinity. Since the popular Tabacon was at capacity, I opted for Ecotermales, the only other hot springs in Arenal that gets its water directly from the source. #TravelTuesday
This weekend a last minute trip to Costa Rica provided the perfect reprieve from what’s been a busy school year. As much as I’ve travelled, the Nayara Hotel was by far the most picturesque and lavish resort that I’ve ever stayed in. This was the perfect start to my birthday month. Blog post coming soon. 📷: @nayarahotels
After hiking through a hidden canyon in Bali, you end up coming out the other side to this. You go from aggressively gripping canyon walls tall like trees, trekking against river currents, huffing and puffing, wet and tired as your feet meet this stone path. It takes a moment to register and even then you don't know where you are anymore. You just take in the endless horizon and count the softly flying kites in the clouds as you walk aimlessly back to reality. #mondays#backtoreality
It’s #NationalCoffeeDay , and I’m flashing back to my coffee plantation visit in Bali while also praying that Mt Agung decides to chill and not erupt this decade. At the coffee plantation right outside of the Tegallalang Rice Terraces, you can take a tour of their grounds and sample over 15 coffees and teas for free. I wasn’t bold enough to try the Luwak coffee, which is one of the most expensive coffees in the world, and made from the feces of Luwak cats, but if you’re adventurous, you should definitely add it to your travel bucket list.
It’s that time of year when I start planning my big trip for next summer, and while I narrow down this year’s location and take into consideration all of the current social unrest, I couldn’t help but to think back to the time I went to Turkey in the midst of an airport bombing and coup d’etat. Ironically, Istanbul still made it to my list of favorite places to visit, and I learned some valuable lessons about traveling while the world is in turmoil. When Terror Strikes is on the blog now. #WanderlustWednesday
