I almost have no words to describe my vacation in Costa Rica. That’s how amazing it was.
The idea was really simple. Get away with friends, rent a simple house, learn to surf, that’s it. Nothing to do in the evenings, everyone in bed by 9 after a margarita or two at sunset, and I’ve already told you about all the whole inevitable style meltdown.
And actually, I think it was the simplicity that touched me so much.
It reminded me of my summers in Corsica, in my village of Girolata, the dirt roads, the purity of the water and the sky, and days spent doing nothing that end up passing by incredibly fast.
It’s something I’m really stuck on right now – keeping things simple and getting back to my roots.
I hope these rays of sun will do you some good. This trip started as a promise I made to myself to not spend another winter in New York without seeing the sun at some point. The winters here are brutal, so having the chance to break it up with a few days of sun should totally be reimbursed by insurance.
I mean, Obamacare or something.
Maybe one day! ;)
