13 Costa Rica

Where to start…? I loved the big skies, amazing sunsets, vibrantly colored birds, rolling green hills, clouds rising at night, humidity in the rainforest... 

... Sleeping in the hammock on the verandah lulled by the sound of rain on the tin roof, the adrenaline of speeding along a cable suspended above treetops, pulling up from a gallop exhilarated and laughing, carefree and living entirely in the moment. 

We fit a lot into our week in Costa Rica, and also spent a lot of time sleeping, reading and relaxing together, recharging for the year ahead. I think lovely husband C. may have an alternate career as a nature photographer… all the gorgeous photos of birds and butterflies are thanks to his patience and steady hands.

It was the perfect end to a busy year and an incredible part of the world to visit. Now that it's over, I'm quietly tapping my feet under my desk, itching to go exploring again while my mind is dreaming up a list of places for us to visit over the next few months.

From New York, with love xox

Hi dear, so good to see you back! This looks like a dream, a beautiful, verdant green and aquatic blue dream. I don't know much about Costa Rica and this is the first time I am viewing so many glorious images of the country...I say quit the day job and set off a world exploring nature photographer (both you and Mr C), because these pictures are sublime! Please send them to National Geographic!

These photos are gorgeous. You can let your husband know that he did an excellent job and that I agree with you he could make a career out of this. I would love to go to Costa Rica.

Hello lovely! Great to see your gorgeous photos, you and Mr are talented. I adore the dog. I think I have at least one photo of me with a dog in every city we visit! I can't help myself.

Such great pictures!! Beach, palm trees, horses - just paradise!! I wanted to go to Costa Rica in 2003 but went to Bali instead... well, I was still living in Germany back then, maybe I can justify my decision this way, haha.
Such a gorgeous and divine place - thanks for the great inspiration.

Lots of love from WA xx
