Hello from beautiful Costa Rica! I started writing this post on our patio looking out into the pink sunset (magical moment pictured below) and could not believe how lucky I am to be here. I am so, so grateful. Just had to state that because practicing gratitude when I travel makes the experience sink in even more and allows me to truly imprint it in my memory.

Pretty inspiring workspace for blogging this week!

So we arrived earlier today in the afternoon and as in most trips, the first day consists mainly in finding your feet (ie. where you will be living, stocking up on food and getting familiar with your surroundings). Our wonderful welcome contact Barb gave us a full tour of the villa and the property and we are thrilled with the accomodations (if you are curious, you can see it listed on Air BNB here). Our villa is in Playa Del Coco located 5 minutes from the Pacific Ocean so of course of first activity was to go check out the beach. Here are a few snap shots of the beauty we have taken in so far.

These pups were so cute. All my travel pics must inclure some furry friends.

I have no words for the beauty of the sunsets here.
