Saddd to leave CR :( It was quite the experience.
Took the last possible bus out of MA and towards San Jose for the night, I was leaving the next day at 1 pm so I knew I needed to get to SJ the night before. Also last time I was in SJ and stayed at Pangea (1/8) I paid $1 a day for the remainder of my trip to leave some stuff at the hostel. I originally left on this trip with luggage, which I realized quick was a huge pain in the ass. I had never really traveled before so I didn't know. So I bought a big backpack online and had my parents mail it to me at Vista Serena around Christmas time... so when I went to Pangea earlier I looked for a place that did storage and I read Pangea did.. it worked great because I basically had an extra bag to bring stuff home I bought! I left the luggage in this "luggage room" which I was pretty nervous about those few weeks.
With all my belongings back in Chicago!
. I was really worried I would get there the night before my flight and it would be gone. I had also packed zip lines with me which I'm glad I did because I also zip lined my bag to the crate it was sitting on! Anyways I got to Pangea and everything was left exactly how I left it it was great and a big relief. Packed/rearranged all my stuff for the next day. I was ready to go home but definitely could have stayed longer. I headed to the airport and had been chatting with Rodolfo my friend I met in Curubande and he wanted to meet me at the airport it was sweet! So chatted with him a bit and then headed home. The flight back was fine, a lot of reflecting on my trip. I scheduled my flight home so I would stop for a layover in Atlanta where one of my best friends Jana lives. I don't get to see her much anyways so it worked out well, she just picked me up at the airport and we were able to hang out that night and she took me back to the airport the next day. I flew home the next morning into Chicago. My mom, dad , and sister all came to pick me up. I was so happy to see them ! I realized I did indeed get VERY tan !! It was middle of Wisconsin winter so they were so white. haha. My trip was amazing and everything I was hoping it would be.
