Remember that one time I went to Costa Rica and then didn't get around to blogging the photos until 7 months later?! Well I finally made/had some time to edit my favorites from my trip I took back in June with my best friend Mandy. We went to Costa Rica on a volunteer trip with International Volunteer HQ where we were housed with a family in San Jose. We volunteered our time for one week teaching children English in nearby schools and then finished off our adventure on the coast of Jaco. We were immediately submerged in the culture upon arrival, took city buses to our destinations and learned very quickly that our Spanish speaking skills were quite rusty. The photos tell a better story, take a look...
Wandering the city of San Jose. I made a new friend.
And this is why Mandy is my best friend.
I took this photo for my dog Stella, she loves bunnies.
A beautiful church we stumbled upon.
The weirdest fruit I have ever seen and it was delicious.
Took three buses to get here. The town of Orosi was so peaceful.
I could have looked at this view for all of my days.
One of the classrooms we taught in.
This little trouble maker was playing pranks on us.
The view from our bedroom in the house we stayed at. So colorful <3

Our weekend getaway in Jaco.
Alcohol made us forget about the insane humidity.
Manuel Antonio National Park was AMAZING.

This iguana fell from a tree to get a closer look at the snack I was eating.
