The Adventure Begins
With my passport ready, my ticket bought and my bags packed I was all set to head off to Costa Rica.
This was a trip of firsts for me, first time flying, first time visiting a foreign country (unless you count a cruise my husband & I took to the Jamaica, pics here) and the first time traveling alone. I was a little nervous, but mostly excited. I was heading to a friend of mine’s farm, of whom, I had only met online. I found it listed in an “Eco Villiage” directory while doing some research. After online stalking the farm for quite some time, I decided to send Ginnee an email. We chatted via email for a while, then became Facebook friends. After a couple years of correspondence I got up the nerve to take a trip out to visit her, her family and the farm. Ginnee and Phil had been living there for ten years, Erika (their daughter) soon followed, fell in love and married a local (Tiko) man named, William, together, they live on 1,270 acres in the Costa Rican mountains.
