Costa Rica 🇨🇷 travel diary May 23 - @alexbodenham and @jsephli pulled off the most amazing surprise ever! Joseph and I booked our trip to Costa Rica in March, and shortly thereafter, Alex booked too... however I had no idea! Joseph found me at the airport and said “Carrie, get into the car 🚗” and ALEX was behind the wheel of the rental! I started screaming! 😱 I can’t believe they pulled it off - I had another idea! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We drove for about 1.5 hours from San Jose airport to our hotel @backyardbar in Jaco area. We immediately got frozen drinks 🍹 and watched surfers 🏄. We then took disco naps (Alex and Joseph’s flight from DC left around 2am and my flight from CVG left at 6am). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We then went to dinner at @bowiespoint (short walk from our hotel). The owner has 13+ animals, including a pig 🐷 named @morita_thepiglet ! I am totally in love with all his dogs, especially the basset hound puppy 🐶)! Animals just make my heart happy ❤️ We were watching all the animals play and run around and Alex joked “Carrie this is your future!” (Beach 🌊 and animals 🐾)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

💚COSTA RICA💚
Landet svømmer i exotiske frugter! Her karambol, også kaldet stjernefrugt✨
Frisk og syrlig i smagen. Kommer oprindeligt fra sydøstasien.

Cahuita, Costa Rica: Capuchin monkey, grabbing a morning bite to eat. Taken from our bedroom at Caribbean Secret, right on the edge of the National Park. The garden backs onto it with a token 3ft wire fence and the air resounds with the sounds of the forest - Capuchin and Howler monkeys, a thousand different birds and other animals.  #travelblog #travelogue #travelphotography #traveladdict #travelholic #worldtraveller #traveldiaries #instatraveller #travelinspriation #travelguide #wanderlust #travel_ig #thejourneymanreport #traveltales #costaricagram #costaricacool #puravidalife #cahuitanationalpark #cahuita #cahuitacostarica #costarica🇨🇷 #capuchinmonkey #capuchin #capuchinsofinstagram #capuchinmonkeys #monkeysofinstagram #monkey #monkeygram

Floating into the weekend like 😇💦 🏊🏾‍♂️ This day we had sweat more than we ever had in our lives and it was so hot 🥵 This water cooled us off and was exactly the right temperature for this Florida girl and we just floated back and forth with the waves for a long time. It was a perfect moment 💙

We don’t normally like to spend the first day of a trip in the rental car, but it was the only way to fit Manuel Antonio in the schedule. We made it, and the monkey business was worth it. .

“No hermano, si yo estuviera en otro país me gustaría que hicieran lo mismo por mí.” Estas fueron las palabras de Carlos, un jóven local de Quepos que nos llevó hasta nuestro hostal a media noche, sin internet, sin luz y bajo una tormenta llegando a Manuel Antonio. No nos aceptó dinero pero si una bolsa de buenos dulces Mexicanos. Para mí esto de lo más bonito de salir a otro país, conocer a su gente. #puravida

There’s a reason you don’t see too many pictures of me on my Instagram and if you do, it’s likely a back shot from far enough away that I look smallish. I’ve never really said why and you probably haven’t wondered haha. Let’s talk about it.
.
I grew up in an amazing home. I always felt loved and safe and was taught that I have incredible worth. But I also watched my angel mother diet her life away. I don’t remember a time that she wasn’t on weight watchers or wore a swimsuit in public or had a kind word to say about herself. I watched, and learned.
.
In elementary school, she bought me a swimsuit and I remember trying it on and telling her I looked fat. I remember putting myself on my first diet in 5th grade because I didn’t want to break 100 pounds. And so it began, self worth based on numbers.
.
Long story short, the past few years have been difficult due to injuries and life events (cough marriage). An all time low forced me to make major changes in 2019. I’ve been working hard and stepped on the scale yesterday to see that I’m down 20 pounds. But seeing the number I had wanted to see for so long didn’t make me happy (no surprise there). All I could think was, just 10 more.
.
But I’m done. It’s time to unlearn. I’ve realized that never being happy with myself is just exhausting and ungrateful. I love my life. I love my adventures. My body is strong and helps me get to really cool places. Why should I waste so much energy wishing I looked different, when my body is so capable. All along, the needed change was in my mind, not my body.
.
Here’s to joy in the journey and being grateful for what I have. Here’s to loving my body for what it can do and treating it right simply out of gratitude. So here’s a pic of me, in a swimsuit, that I would never ever post. Have a sweet weekend ✌🏽

To me happiness is having the freedom to roam.
It’s a life with endless adventures and ever changing horizons.
It’s letting go of other people’s expectations to fully embrace myself and all that I wish to be.
..
What does happiness mean to you?!

Soy de aquellos que aprecia la sencillez de los momentos, cuando lo más común para muchos puede llegar a ser lo más puro. A veces el sol y su luz hacen dueto con las partículas de lluvia; creando obras maestras... este arcoíris por ejemplo, nos dio emoción a todos los que estábamos presentes, hasta a un fiel amigo de por ahí 🐶🌈 -

Manuel Antonio National Park captured from its chocolate side 💙
.
Here are the reasons why this has probably been our favourite destination in Costa Rica:
.
1️⃣ It's the heritage of an amazing variety of Central America’s wildlife. We spotted a sloth, raccoons, a monkey family, a poison dart frog and much more just by walking around by ourselves - no guide needed. 🐒
.
2️⃣ It has amazing beaches within the park, so if your shirt is soaking wet, after 2 hours of wildlife spotting in high humidity, you just find your fav beach spot and chill. ☀
.
Since this place is awesome, it's also one of the most expensive areas in Costa Rica and overcrowded in high season.
.
We stayed with an amazing Costa Rican family, which gave us some concerning insights too. A major problem there is that tourism has increased prices to a level that locals have a hard time affording even  basics like grocery. Even though there is a lot of money coming from tourism, there is this huge downside, since wealth is never spread evenly.
.
It gives us a hard time thinking about how this issue can be dealt with among many places in the world. For us it feels like this is where capitalism has its boundaries and the state has to ensure that food is produced locally. And such as clean water has to be affordable for everyone. 🙏
