Today is going to be a throwback to November of 2011, which seems so dreadfully long ago. I traveled to Costa Rica and fell in love with the saturated landscape, the beautiful people, and the attitude “pura vida”.
Pura Vida is a characteristic phrase of Costa Rica, meaning “pure life”, which basically means full of life. I love that. People say it to each other as a greeting and a farewell, much like “Aloha” in Hawai’i.
I’m going to traipse down memory lane and just share some photos from my time there.
Even though I was not in the more touristy, coastal parts of the country, the landscape was breathtaking.
I love ziplining, and our canopy tour was one of my favorite parts. A million shades of luscious green that begged to be painted, even though you knew a painting could never do it justice. The bottom right photo is one I took while on the line, flying past.
I love Pura Vida, and I think everyone is a little piece of where they have been, so I like to think that some of that has stayed within me.
