“The purpose of this glorious life is not simply to endure it, but to soar, stumble and flourish as you learn to fall in love with existence. We were born to live my dear, not to merely exist.” – Becca Lee

Life in Costa Rica never seizes to amaze me. Whether it is a new word, new food, or a new experience, not a day goes by that I don’t learn something new. New experiences on a budget are easy to find too!

La Sabana Park in San Jose was a recent experience of mine. This is one of the countries largest parks with tons to do from soccer, paddle boats, kayaks, race track and more.

El Museo del Oro Precolombino was a cool experience as well. Filled with pre-Columbian gold and miscellaneous Costa Rican artifacts.

San Jose after dark is also an experience of its own with street performers, people, food and more.


And a glimpse of the wonderful food I’ve indulged in lately, including pupusas, ceviche, a classic Tico meal, tamales, more ceviche, and my first time eating Gelato. If I haven’t mentioned it before, the food is to die for here!

And some random snapshots of friends and I including a Gecko who loves to make appearances in my living room, a view of the last full moon, and a view of sunshine over Heredia.
