Journey to Costa Rica

What are we planning to do in Costa Rica? As of Spetember 1st, my hushand and I along with our three dogs, will be living in Costa Ballena, the South Pacific Coast of Costa Rica which is near prisitne beaches, untouched rainforrest and the mountains. Costa Rica has diverse wildlife~ macaws, toucans, sloths, and monkeys. I can pick fruit from the fruit trees near my deck. I will be speaking Spanish, doing my artwork, connecting with people in the Tico community, seeing my clients on TeleHealth, facilitating IFS & Expressive Arts workshops and retreats.

The first thing on my Costa Rica to-do list was to become fluent in Spanish. I've been studying Spanish through books, film and writing throughout most of my life. I was fluent in Spanish in college and it was actually my Minor and psychology was my Major. Since we decided to move to Costa Rica, I decided to study with more intention and actually become fluent again in Spanish. Over the past five months, I've been taking Spanish lessons 2-3x a week and practicing between lessons. It's really coming together.

Next, we had to start downsizing, organizing and decluttering and simply letting go of so much stuff. I had to address some questions, Do I really need this? Do I really want this? Why am I keeping this? It's been a very powerful healing process for me. It's seems to have helped me let go of the past and the daily challenges that present themselves. I feel like I'm living more in the present. We've been advised to bring down most of our possessions in extra suitcases each time we travel to Costa Rica.

We have hired Sarah Elena at Costa Rica Relocation and Travel to guide us throughout this entire process of moving to Costa Rica. My husband is going down to Costa Rica next month to secure a home for us.

We had to think about our dogs. They've all gone to the vet to update all their shots and get their microchips. We looked into airlines that will transport the dogs. It seems like that's going to go well.

I'm so excited for our new life in Costa Rica. Maybe you want to make a move someday. We invite you to join us on our journey.
