From Costa Rica To Canada ~!
Hello everyone! Im back in Canada, I arrived off the plane from Costa Rica 2 days ago, it is nice to come home at this time of year, all the flowers and leaves are in full bloom, the temperature is decent and it has been a bit sunny :) ( just not as sunny as where I came from haha). My trip was amazing and I tasted some amazing dishes! Im so glad to have had this wonderful experience, I fell absolutely in love with Costa Rica. I check out panama for a short time while I was there too, it is lovely also but I felt a stronger connection with Costa Rica.
One of the best things about my trip was the mass amount of fruits that were in season this time of year! Avocados, mangos, bananas, papaya, watermelon, starfruit, nansi, cantaloupe, tamarind and many more exotic fruits! It was a food tasting frenzy! Every time I saw something I had never tried before I tried it haha. Also I fell in love with the wide arrange of tasty sauces and hot sauces, I stocked up good from coming home! here is a few of the sauces I bought ( see picture below)
After having this trip I can tell you it wont be my last to Costa Rica, I intend on going back, possibly soon at the end of summer! I made a lot of good friends, and found the west coast very livable. There were a lot of Canadians who are living and working there. I keep pondering the idea of opening up a health and wellness surfer retreat. People can come down and stay for a few days - a few weeks. The food would be organic and local, activities such as Yoga and meditation would be taught daily, but the main activity would be surfing. The place I imagine this retreat being built at is near Tamarindo on the west coast of Costa Rica, it truly is a surfers paradise, I spend the last of my days in the water surfing as much as I could!
I am in te process of moving to a new city for my new job this summer, but be on the look out for some Central American inspired dishes shortly ;)
Until next time, PURA VIDA!!
