Looking back on my two months in Latin America, there is just so much happiness that floods through me.
It was such an incredible time – a time of adventure, activity, friendship, and many. many smiles.
As well as my wrap up video above, I thought I’d share some of my favourite photos from my trip.

Super happy but oh, so sunburnt!
Laying on a beach bordered on one side with bright blue ocean, and on the other by a Nature Park filled with monkeys and other wildlife going about their business, I thought to myself, “This is paradise.”

Deep in the Costa Rican rainforest, on a patch of earth next to a river, we were inside a cosy little cabin when we awoke to the sound of the heaviest rain I’ve ever heard.
Oh, we awoke quite late two, as the sound of the rain was louder than our alarms.
Welcome to Tortuguero.

So much fog, so little view.
So I was off to the environmental heaven of Central America on
Contiki’s Costa Rica Unplugged tour.
With a population of almost 5 million people, one of the most interesting things about Costa Rica is that the country has recently become 100% dependent on renewable energies – Take note, Australia!
