Pre-Trip Impressions

We are hours away from departing to Costa Rica and I could not be more excited!  This will be the farthest I've ventured out of the U.S. so there's a lot of nervous excitement surrounding this trip.  I think I'm looking forward most to learning about a new culture as well as experiencing adventuring on a different terrain than Louisiana.  Also, to be able to see the different ways they conserve energy and live off of the land are very interesting to me. I'm hoping to gain a new appreciation for saving energy compared to our American way of things.
