Greetings from Costa Rica! We’re currently in Arenal next to a giant, active volcano. We did a little hiking, but have mostly spent our time chilling in the natural hot springs. I haven’t seen much wildlife except a tapir that ran across the path while we were hiking and scared the bejeezus out of me, and a whole lotta birds. Yesterday we did the scary-as-hell-but-totally-worth-it Skyventure zip lining. The highest zip line was 650 feet above the rainforest. The longest one was 1/2 a mile long. The height wasn’t the scariest for me, it was definitely the speeds. You could get going up to 50mph! You can check out a video of me on my Facebook page. Here’s a pic. I’m smiling but I’m super scared and super hungover. The adrenaline fixed that pretty quick.
I’m off to the spa then we’re hitting the road for the beach! Time to do some poolside reading!
