Throwback to 4 years ago… I wasn’t even legally an adult and there I was, waving goodbye to my parents at Heathrow about to embark on a journey that would mark the beginning of my travel addiction. Costa Rica is a vibrant, tropical country in the heart of Central America and I’m glad it was my first taste of solo-travel. I was volunteering with other young people through a programme that I probably paid far too much money for but without this experience I wouldn’t have gained the contacts that I have now that enable me to volunteer for pretty much nothing! No regrets in that sense (even though I’ve learnt my lesson). Hope you enjoy the photos!
