I enjoyed my adventure in Monteverde. Did you do a coffee tour? I highly recommend El Trapiche. 😎

@expertvagabond  I have always been a tea kind of gal, but I drank so much coffee and hot chocolate while in Costa Rica. LOL ☕🍵

I don't know why but my first tought about this photo was the post you wrote a couple of years ago, about your hike in the north of Spain. I will never forget the shoes you used and I even tought that you used a normal sandals. I bet you miss that journey Matt. Cheers from Azores Islands! Have an amazing day 😊
