WOW! Who´d have thought eight days in the Costa Rican jungle would fly past so quickly!
Arriving after two days travelling from England, nervous didn´t cut it. Within a matter of minutes I felt like I was part of the family! Everyone is so welcoming, kind and supportive, even when you´re panicking on the beach at 5am during a tropical storm!
My first experience of backpacking and working on a conservation project has been truly amazing, from the exotic wildlife, exploring the beautiful jungle, swimming in rivers, trekking through the forest, jumping waves in the ocean to patrolling the beach for turtles.
There have, of course, been some difficult moments; cold showers, very limited wifi, numerous insect bites and painful sunburn (regardless of how much suncream you use!) but my time here has been unforgettable.
