I'm bursting at the seams and having a hard time concentrating on work because I just booked a flight yesterday to Costa Rica! Sort of a "spontaneous" thing from May 15-19--un pequeno viaje. I'm traveling alone, but as it turns out, my friend Carolyn will also be there! She's going on a much longer trip for 2 weeks with Intrepid Travel (which I'm definitely bookmarking for the future--some great trips with various comfort level options and not overpriced). I doubt I'll be doing much on the way of true ecotourism, given my short stay, but I'm hoping to do 1 or 2 day trips from San Jose--or potentially one overnight trip. In the next few days (evenings, of course), I'm going to be booking my hotel and researching tours and planning (as much as I ever plan) my itinerary!
