🇨🇷 I had wanted to visit Costa Rica since I was a little girl. I distinctly recall finding a tin of pineapples in the cupboard when I was about 8 that said “made in Costa Rica”. I asked my parents where this was and they didn’t know; we got out an atlas and discovered a tiny country in Central America. I vowed then that one day I would go! I briefly visited in 2008, but I wanted to return to explore properly.
🏡 The wealth comparison compared to the countries we had just passed through was immediately obvious. It is much richer and everything from the roads, the cars and buildings were better maintained.
💵 Sadly this detracted from its allure for me. Costa Rica uses the US dollar and attracts a LOT of American tourists. It is very “Americanised”, lacks a natural charm and felt over commercialised.
🟢 That being said Costa Rica is one of the greenest countries on the planet and was eco-conscious before the rest of the world caught on. It is also very peaceful and has no army.
🛶 We went ziplining in the Monteverde Cloud forest, white water rafting in Arenal and explored the streets of San Jose.
🏝 The final stop was Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, a quite beach town on the Caribbean coast. I had two unfortunate experiences here which may have influenced my feelings towards the country not being so positive.
🔪The first occurred after a night out in a local beach bar. Myself and two girl friends (including @jasmijnvandenheuvel!) stayed late. Walking back, Jasmijn and I were ahead whilst the other lagged behind. Right before our hostel two men jumped her, held a knife to her throat, cut the strap of her bag and ran off with it. She gave chase (stupidly!). I threw my bag through the railing of the hostel - it contained all my money and passport - and legged it after her. She never caught them up nor got anything back.
🥾 I was up at 6am the next morning despite the shock for a full day jungle hike. We joined a group of US students and their teachers. It was fascinating seeing the flora and fauna with a local guide until one teacher fell in a puddle with a sharp branch hidden in it and impaled her shin. We had to evacuate her back to the town by boat!

📍Art Nouveau building at Ligovsky Prospect 65.
The building where we climb legally onto the rooftop enjoying the open sky and the glorious panorama of St. Petersburg and its achitectural gems from the bird's eye view.
Also, here you can see and get to experience what its like to be standing in the MPVO tower (air-raid protection post), which was built to protect the city from enemy air attacks during the World War 2. #wheninSPB 🇷🇺

I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature.

Torrance Barrence Dark Sky Preserve was our location of choice after cloud rolled in last Friday in the West. .
Needless to say it was a good decision and we had a clear night all night long. .
We even managed to run in to friends up there. Good to see you @kristupha and @annathr1
