Took a two-day trip up to San Juan del Sur over the weekend. Beautiful, beautiful little town just across the Nicaraguan border sitting beside the ocean along the southern Pacific coast. While leaving Costa Rica every ninety days on a tourist visa is a necessity, it’s actually nice because it forces you to take a vacation away from your life every three months. And San Juan del Sur was a little slice of heaven.
I’m not going to lie (and this likely won’t come as a surprise): I was more than a little disorganized in making this trip. The night prior, I had gone out to meet a couple of people and ended up drinking a good bit and didn’t get home until around midnight. Knowing I had to catch the bus at 5:45am, I thought about setting my alarm even though I naturally wake up early all the time. Didn’t set my alarm. Instead what I did was pass out but with the acute awareness that I DIDN’T set my alarm and that I had to be up in five hours.
So I woke up at 1:30am. 2:30am. 4am. And then finally 5:15am.
In rushing to get packed, I totally forgot my charger for my camera battery which was unfortunate because there was soooo much to photograph over the next 36 hours. But it was fine, actually. So the photos and videos from the trip can be found here.
Anyway, I hope all is well. Write when you can!
