Second leg of the trip: La Fortuna. Visiting the Arenal Volcano was a blast, no pun intended. 🌋 . #arenalobservatorylodge @arenalobservatorylodge @thespringscostarica

I survived another travel day. They are always nerve wrecking and anxiety-filled (not to mention anxiety and I have some conflicts that we are trying to resolve 👊🏾). Traveling alone is about really trusting the process and your FIRST gut feeling. As a solo, budget traveler, most of my transportation is the cheapest land option, usually a public bus which also transport locals. It makes many stops and it takes anywhere from 8-12 hours to reach the destination. And then there is a language barrier when trying to make sure I am getting on the right bus in the right direction at the right time. Some things I’ve found helpful is to look for another traveler, you know the individual or couple with the bag that looks like it’s dragging them down. Ok yea. I know he/she/they speak English. That strategy never fails and I confirm most of my assumptions with that person(s) such as the destination and time. And usually when I arrive at my destination, it’s dark at night, but there are taxis waiting to serve and gratefully, I’ve arrive to my final accommodation safe and sound, no problem! 🙌🏾 . . Lessons: 1️⃣Remember that ALLLLLL things are working for my good. 2️⃣Breathe when I feel myself becoming anxious about the thoughts of a failed travel day. 3️⃣With each successful travel day, I become more self reliant and self trusting. Believing more in myself and my capabilities. 4️⃣Chances make champions. Swing for the fences! SCORE!!!!!! . .

My first facial ever! And the bonus is I got it done in a natural hot spring in Costa Rica, with volcanic ash which I observed being scraped from the ground of the Arenal Observatory. . . Today was amazing. Approximately 4-5 hours of hiking in the Arenal and Chato volcano slopes, I witnessed white face monkeys swing from the trees, first time ever seeing the beautiful native rainbow trees of Costa Rica, various colorful and unique plants and flowers, and I took a picture of the red eyed frog 🐸 (I see this picture in Marriott Hotel rooms allllll the time and I captured my own!!!) I can’t wait to use the beautiful pictures I captured as wall decor in my next home, whenever I settle again! . . To think, I wasn’t sure why I wanted to come to Costa Rica, and after coming to terms with my dislike for jungles and wildlife, I was rethinking my whole plan to travel to this beautiful place. 🚨 LESSON - don’t give up on what you set out to do because you never know how the moments will positively impact your life.🚨I spent three days in San Jose. Most people would question why, but it was cool for me. My frrraannn @md_muse visited me and we strolled through the city, bar and restaurant hopping and people watching and heart talking. I wouldn’t trade those three days for anything. And then I made a visit to La Fortuna and I’m soooo happy I did! The tour with Arenal Jungle Tours was nothing short of amazing! I’ll be sharing more of the moments I captured! Stay tuned! . . #AdventHERous30 #SoloTravel #Travelife ✈️ #CorporateDropout #ThirtySomethings #FemmeTravel #SelfLove #SelfDiscover #SelinaLaFortuna #welivetoexplore #wanderlust #blackandabroad #blacktravelguide #blackgirlstravel #TrySomethingNew #Stretchyourself #ArenalJungleTours #LaFortuna #costarica 🇨🇷 #arenalobservatorylodge #NaturalHotSprings #HikeLife #BlackTravel #MyTravelCrush #IgTravel #Wanderess #GlobalCitizen #BlackTravelMovement #GirlsLoveTravel #30countriesbefore31
Amazing views from the @arenalobservatorylodge deck over the Arenal lake. During the day you can climb ‘The Nest’, an observatory tower that offers you a great view at the vulcano, lake and rainforest. At the top there is a part of the stairs that hangs out of the tower. Only one person is allowed on this per time, scary but worth it! We had one full day at the lodge which was too little to explore all the trails and do all the activities that are offered in this area. Would have loved to stay another week or so! . . #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #family #familytravel #familytrip #traveltips #lovetotravel #discoverearth #theoutbound #bestvacations #places_wow #theglobewanderer #discoverglobe #exploreshareinspire #costarica #arenalobservatorylodge #arenal #lafortuna #wonderful_places #sonyalpha #instatravel #instagood #sunset #arenallake
Do you have a favorite tree?⤵️// У вас есть любимое дерево? . В моей родной Латвии полно лохматых елей, конопатых берёзок и пышных клёнов, но по традиции жанра, тянет меня к тому «чего у меня нет». Я обожаю эвкалипты. За их аромат, за гладкость стволов, за воздушность и за то что они так не похожи на другие деревья. Вы знали что эвкалипты сбрасывают не листья, а кору? . Присмотритесь к деревьям на фото - видите цвет коры? Это «радужные» эвкалипты. Кажется, что стволы этих великанов разукрасила кисть художника. Впервые встретила этих красавцев На «Большом острове» Гавайев, на знаменитой Дороге Хана, Но тогда мы не остановились чтобы поближе их рассмотреть. . Теперь, спустя годы, добралась до радужных эвкалиптов в Коста-Рике: 7км трясёмся по разбомблённой гравийке, платим 12$ за вход и идём около часа по тропе. Но какая же тут умиротворяющая красота! Тропы расчищены и хорошо маркированы: не поход, а приятная прогулка в необычном лесу. Очень рекомендую. lenagra_costa_rica_082018 In my native Latvia there are plenty of beautiful forests filled with freckled birches, fluffy pines and silver-leaved aspens. Yet, I am attracted to something that we don’t have - eucalyptus. I love eucalyptus for its smooth trunk, for its airy canopy and its fresh fragrance. Did you know that eucalyptus shed it’s bark, not leaves? . Look at these trees: they are not ordinary eucalyptus, but “rainbow” ones. It seems like the bark is painted with brush strokes. First time I saw these magnificent giants at Hana Road, Hawaii. Back then we didn’t stop for a closer look, so this time in Costa Rica I was really excited to see these unusual trees again. . It takes a long 7km ride on a very bumpy unpaved road, 12$/ per head entry fee and an hour’s walk to get to these 🌈 beauties. But this is so with it! Easy, well-marked trails winding through primary and secondary forests, spectacular views and lush meadows. Highly recommended! #fdb_costa_rica_082018
On the way to our next stop in Costa Rica @arenalobservatorylodge this huge snapping turtle crossed the road, looking like a dinosaur from millions of years ago. It disappeared in the grass behind the road. Makes you wonder what else is hiding there 😱😀. . #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography #family #familytravel #familytrip #traveltips #lovetotravel #discoverearth #theoutbound #bestvacations #places_wow #theglobewanderer #discoverglobe #exploreshareinspire #costarica #arenalobservatorylodge #arenal #lafortuna #wonderful_places #sonyalpha #instatravel #instagood #snappingturtle #turtle
