Well hello there! It's been quite a while since my last post! I suppose a worldwide pandemic will do that. I have plans to write another post about living in Costa Rica during a pandemic, so I won't go into detail here. However, I will say that I am grateful that outdoor activities are allowed, … Continue reading Climbing a Volcano: Part 1

Hola! Well, last week I went somewhere I had never really imagined myself going: CUBA! I had a personal day at work to burn, and I mean, when you have an extra day off from work, what better way to spend it than by going to Cuba?

I am closing in on the end of my second year in Costa Rica, and I definitely think I am much more adjusted this year than I was last. Before I moved, I never really thought the States had all that much of a "culture," but I don't think I ever actually understood what that … Continue reading Just Cultural Things
