The Rest of our Costa Rica Trip
The best view of the volcano turned out to be on Saturday afternoon; and even then we didn’t get to see all of it. The volcano has been quiet for the past 8 months now; and we didn’t even get to feel a tremor.
We then went on a mile hike through a rain forest, right on the lodges’ property. It was a little hard on my foot, as we spent most of the hike climbing and the descending stairs. It was a beautiful hike though; and we got to see lots of beautiful foliage.
Monday afternoon we were picked up at 2:30 and off to San Jose we went. It was about to be a 3 ½ hour roller coaster ride. The driver wasn’t near as crazy as the two previous ones, but I was still holding onto my seat in front of me a few times.
We had dinner, collected our deposit money, well some of it, and headed off to bed. We were out the door and headed to the airport by 5:00 a.m. We passed through customs without any problems and started the long journey home.
The flight was uneventful; we arrived in Atlanta and by the time we went through customs and security… again… we had roughly an hour to grab something to eat, before the next leg.
We arrived in Toronto; cleared customs without any problems and were met by my parents a few minutes later. It was great to see my folks again, there’s nothing like a hug from family. We stopped for dinner at Kelsey’s and arrived in London at 10 pm. Visited with Ken and Rosie for a bit, before hitting the hay. It was a long day, but we were happy to be back in Canadaland.
It’s wonderful to go away, but there’s nothing better than coming home. I’ll write a new blog in a day or two with what we’ve been up to since being home.
