Pura Vida Costa Rica
Since I am back from Costa Rica, I feel so incredibly alive.
So why, what happend? The answer is very simple:
"Pura Vida" - this phrase, meaning "pure life" or "enjoy life", you hear lots of times during a day in Costa Rica. And the locals don`t just say it, they really live it.
In the last few weeks I was closer to life as I am at home, I had the feeling I live with the nature and not just in the nature or worse against the nature!
practising Yoga in the middle of the rainforest
living door to door with howler monkeys, sloths, skorpions, snakes, spiders, ...
eating raw cocoa beans out of the cocoa fruit and learning how to make delicious chocolate out of the raw beans from the cacao tree
seeing the sun rising and setting down over the ocean day by day
... so for sure I feel alive and full of energy.
I am happy to share some of my impressions here with you. All I can say is "Enjoy life", "Enjoy every single day", "Experience the beauty of natur" - nature can be so magical!
1) Yoga in the jungle - unique and unforgettable
2) Wildlife in Costa Rica
3) Cacao plantation - how to make real chocolate
4) Beautiful sunsets
