I think I've mentioned before that my husband Kevin, (better known as Kev, Kevi and Sunny) is a second year medical student. Which is the worst year of the worst program on earth. And yeah, I'm a little dramatic about it. He does the best he can, but in reality, I rarely see him. He goes to bed at 8 pm, is up at 4 am and is gone until about 6:30. He felt bad about neglecting me all year, so he planned this trip as a complete surprise during his spring break. I knew we were going somewhere of course. I had to take work off among other things, but I had no idea where we were going exactly until the night before.
Costa Rica was a dream. I was a little hesitant when I found out we were going to Central America since we went to Peru two Thanksgiving's ago and I was not quite ready to return. But Costa Rica was so easy compared to Peru - which is a really good thing since I was 12 weeks pregnant at the time and majorly nauseous. The people are amazing, it is easy to navigate in English (although Kev's Spanish did help) and it felt safe and clean.
We went to a national park and saw some awesome animals, took a couple boat rides, and even went to Nicaragua one day and visited an active volcano. We took a couple hikes, swam, and Kevin took a private snorkeling tour while I read. (Such a dream.) Overall, Costa Rica is such a gorgeous place. We both decided we aren't done - there is so much we weren't able to do, mostly because of my pregnancy. (i.e. zip lining, surfing, white water rafting, etc.) so we'll definitely have to go back. Such fond memories of Costa Rica!
P.s. Kev has since cut his hair. I miss it a lot.
