Two years ago today Ben and I were in Costa Rica for Thanksgiving week. I don’t even remember how or why we got the idea to go there, but I still think it was the best trip we’ve ever taken (maybe even beating our honeymoon in Belize)!
On Thanksgiving Day we went to Manuel Antonio and National Park (and beach). It was the most amazing day of our trip and a T-day I will never forget! It was complete paradise.
And after hiking around a bit we swam in the ocean and suddenly someone on shore started yelling something and pointing in my direction. For a second “SHARK!” went through my head! But, it turned out to be a huge sea turtle. He kept coming up for air and I tried to swim along side him/her as long as I could. Best.Thanksgiving.EVER.
It was amazing. I have had a crazy love for the rainforest since I was a kid. Actually getting to visit the rain forest was a dream. I really want to explore other rain forests now too! Save the Rainforest!!
And there were stray dogs EVERYWHERE.
I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday (because I love food)! And this Costa Rica trip was my favorite T-day ever. Ben and I fell in love with Central America on this trip and dream about exploring other countries in the region (hence the Belize honeymoon).
I hope you are having an amazing Thanksgiving!!! Now, I need to get back to cooking…
