Uni Grad Trip to Costa Rica

Travel

It’s 2019 and 4 years ago I was just a fresh grad out of University. My first and only serious boyfriend bought us a trip to Costa Rica to celebrate my milestone. Unfortunately, we were so busy having fun that we barely took blog worthy pictures. We stayed in the cloud forest (Monteverde) where we did Bungee Jumping spontaneously (no pictures to go with this).

First stop – Hotel Pasatiempo in Tamarindo *surfers only beaches; too wavy
Second stop – Guanacaste, Rincon de la Vieja Volcano with ziplining, man made mud slide, tree top canopy bridge walks

All Around Portugal

Travel

I visited quite a few places via tours but the below destinations are the most outstanding for myself personally:

Azores – Sao Miguel Island *must rent car – limited transportation
Obidos – Beautiful blue and yellow accent paint
Nazar̩ Рhot sands, cold water *watch for flag colour indication; red = strong waves do not swim
Porto – the wine valley
Faro – in the Algarve Region, Lagos is the most popular but for me personally Faro was a good mix of city and beach. I went on a spontaneous boat tour to see where the lagoon meets the ocean
