The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. ~St. Augustine
We have been asked by this amazing company called S-Trip to blog about our dream vacation in the hopes of winning “Social Media Queen” and along with the title comes a dream trip! I personally have not had the opportunity to travel much, but it is something I truly believe in. The number one thing on my bucket list is to travel the world; I want to see and experience the world with the people that I care about while they are still here to do so. After researching this business I have found a specific program called EDGE Academy; this program allows students over the age of 15 travel to stunning, exotic, and ancient places with other teenagers while learning the whole time. This has really spiked my interest and I have passed the information along to all my friends.
The place I would like to start all my travels would have to be Costa Rica, The Rich Coast! Lush rain forests, tranquil beaches, and astonishing culture who wouldn’t want to set off? Not only dose Costa Rica have beautiful nature to enjoy, it is sunny 12 hours a day year round; who couldn’t use a bit of sun on a cold winter day in Canada? You can witness breathtaking waterfalls that lead to the Caribbean or Pacific Ocean or maybe you want to climb up right to the top of dormant volcanoes; I want to do it all!
My journey would start in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. In San Jose I could visit The National Museum of Costa Rica, but I would also want the opportunity to explore the capital city itself. The National Museum contains many different exhibits that will help me learn more about Costa Rica and its culture. The exhibit that I’m most interested in is the Anthropology & Archaeology exhibit. Within this exhibit you can find out about the local animals, birds, plants and much more.
I also want to have some adventure in this vacation, white-water rafting looks like a great way to get this in! Pacuare River serves the perfect destination for this thrilling experience!
Another experience I want to have while in Costa Rica is surfing lessons! I always wanted to be able to paddle out in to the crystal clear waters , jump up on my surf board and ride back in to shore on huge swell. Personally I feel me and my friends would absolutely LOVE all these experiences Costa Rica has to offer and maybe someday we will 🙂
