Costa Rican Paradise

Hello everyone! So excited to be finally blogging! I haven’t got a really good internet connection since I came to Costa Rica, so it’s been hard to be online and also, with all this beauty who wants to be on the computer all the time right?

I wish I had more time to talk about my trip and everything I’ve been experiencing since I came last month, but briefly I just want to say I’m super happy, I feel like I’m on the right place, where I’m supposed to be. I feel so blessed for being able to be here, and enjoy all the opportunities I’ve been having lately; the people I’ve been meeting and all the amazing things I’m learning.

Yesterday I had a great snack during the evening, I was craving something refreshing after a long walk, and oh my goodness, this super easy and tasty salad came to me. Every single ingredient comes from the farm, how amazing is that? I feel like I’m living in paradise! If you don’t follow me onΒ facebook, you must! I’m always uploading pictures of some of my adventures here and what I do in the greenhouse, so if you want to be updated, you should like my page there, I’m more often there than here.

Anyways, so you want to know how to prepare this 5 min awesomeness?? Here it is!

  2. I recently visited Costa Rica for the first time and fell in love! I understand how you feel, I knew that I was home as soon as I stepped off of the plane. I am currently working on a plan to move that way, I so miss the culture, the fruit, the beaches, just everything!
