Anticipations on Costa Rica

It’s the day before I depart on my trip. So far, I have been doing almost everything last minute. Going to classes, keeping up with my job, and preparing for an international trip all at the same time is no easy feat. A positive is the fact that I got the opportunity to go shopping and score some must-needs for this trip, such as my new Jansport hiking backpack. I would definitely advise not waiting until a couple of weeks before the trip to get supplies together though. Overall, I am super excited for this trip. I have never been to Central America, let alone a country that’s famous for its exotic coffee and gorgeous rain forests. I am really looking forward to unplug from technology and immerse myself in the culture, people, and of course, that wonderful coffee. I have also never been to a farm. I’m particularly intrigued that the UGACR campus is in the mountains, that should make for some neat photos. Until next time, pura vida!

My new backpack that this trip gave me the excuse to buy.
