coastal connection

IMG_8173

I’ve always felt such a strong tie to nature and love when I can get away to some far away place (or maybe it doesn’t even have to be that far away) where I can run through the sand and ocean, and roam the coastal countryside.

Not too long ago I traveled to Jaco, Costa Rica, which was absolutely gorgeous and exactly my cup of tea with its rainforest, jungley vibe and thriving beaches. It’s definitely a different sort of get away than somewhere like Miami would be – and I really got to see another side of nature when I had a chance to explore this little pocket of the world.
