costa rica since i was a child. i imagined a place so magical - trees everywhere, even stemming from the skies; wild animals so friendly; and a place of lush green where the impossible could be possible. as i've grown and traveled a bit, i've realized that every place can be beautiful, yet each place has its struggles, too.
costa rica did not disappoint. perhaps it wasn't the idyllic dream i created in my childhood mind, but it was pretty darn close. i really do believe that being in a beautiful setting (whether physically or mentally) can allow the impossible to shed its light. and once that barrier is broken down - my, what beauty exists in its place.
