Under 30 Experiences Fueled My Life

My first adventure to Costa Rica was with Under 30 Experiences ( U30X) which was unforgettable and a feeling that is almost indescribably. Because I decided to travel with U30X all the planning was done for me, I meet new people, and I was able to awaken emotions/feelings that I have been sleeping on.

The travel company basically took all of the stress and tasks away from planning my own trip. Everyday was filled with exciting places to eat, gorgeous views, and outdoor adrenaline packed activities. Some of those activities included zip lining through the rain forest with Sky Adventure, relaxing in the hot springs, hiking up mountains, visiting secret beaches, repelling down water falls with Quepos Canyoning, kayaking, water rafting, yoga, and exploring city areas.

The comfort zone is not for you. Period!

My thoughts went from what I did that day, when will I visit the lovely Costa Rica again, my love life, my career, family, and my future. My thoughts started racing so much that I placed them on paper, and I now I want to share them with you…

This is where I sat in the middle of the night writing.
