Next to music and dance, travel is one of my greatest passions! I really discovered my wanderlust this past year when I took international trips to Central America and Europe.
In July of 2015, I went WWOOFing on a vegan farm in Costa Rica for 2 weeks. It was my first time in the Costa Rican rainforest, and it was beautiful!
This video is the first of a series of edits I’m creating using my video clips and photos from my journey.
WWOOFing is a super fun and cheap way to travel – it lets you have an adventure and get closer to nature. I hope these videos give you a taste of what it was like.
A couple notes: In my “arrival” segment, where I show you the inside of the casita – I was feeling not only tired, but also sort of overwhelmed… it definitely took me a couple days to adjust. It’s tough to be thrown into a totally unfamiliar environment, by yourself, far from home – and there was no “fanfare” when I got to my destination. I was feeling excited, but also a little bit like “omg what did I get myself into…? I’ll be here for two weeks!? Okay. Wow.” That feeling, plus a bit of normal jetlag, is why I don’t look truly “excited” in the clip. LOL.
The long river you see from the hacienda deck (at about 3:35) is called Rio Reventazón, and it’s 90 miles long! One of the longest in Costa Rica.
The river in the closing photo is El Rio de Pejibaye, which was located on the property where I was staying.
