    Favorite memory from Costa Rica: One day I decided to do a day trip on my own. I was staying at a hostel with friends and took off to visit a hot springs resort. While there I met so many different people from around the world, tried out all different kinds of hot springs and cool pools, and hiked 3 miles up the mountains to an observatory to view the Arenal Volcano. It was perhaps the most breathtaking and awesome moment in my life.
