It’s been a while, i know, but because I work all day here its not that special to post 3 times a week about haha. The time pass by very fast and now it’s already my last full week here, next Thursday I’ll leave Costa Rica (if everything is right…!!) haha why? Because I just found out that I need permission to leave the country, because I’m still (12 hours left) a minor when I leave Costa Rica. But it will be fine. Here are some pictures of last week when I worked in the kitchen. I had an amazing time, the people here are all so nice, and yes my Spanish is making reaaally good progress, haha.
Sorry I couldn’t post any sooner, but here we are again. It’s already a week and a half ago that I left beautiful Tamarindo and arrived in San Jose in the neighborhood Santo Domingo, where I am working for 4 weeks. I flew from Tamarindo to here with a mini plane, because it was waaaay faster and cheaper than with a transfer. Besides, you have a beautiful view and see much more from the country.
Hotel Bougainvillea is amazing! It has a ginormous beautiful garden with 100 of different plants and flowers. They have an amazing staff, who are all so friendly, helpful and kind and great owners who give me this opportunity.
My Spanish will definitely improve here! I have no choice and really have to speak it because no one can’t speak English properly.
I will make an other post with some pictures of the hotel, to give you an idea of where I live and work at the moment.
Hi guys, now that I’m graduated I will tell you my plans for my next chapter. I’m going to travel for half a year and after that I will start at the Hotelschool The Hague location Amsterdam on the first of February.
My journey will start at the first of September to Costa Rica for two months. The first month I will going to school in Playa Tamarindo to improve my Spanish and I will live on the campus there. After four weeks I will go to Santo Domingo where I will live and work in an hotel. It’s important to improve my language and hospitality skills for my study, that’s one of the main reasons for my travel. The last day of October I’ll fly to Curacao where my parents will be and where we will celebrate my 18th birthday. After a week Curacao I will continue my journey to Antigua in the Caribbean where my uncle lives. I will work and live in Antigua for almost 3 months and will return the 17th of January back to the Netherlands.
It’s an amazing opportunity, a once-in-a-lifetime-experience. I’m looking forward to it but I’m also gonna miss my sisters and friends. I will keep you all up-to-date during my journey per this blog. I hope you’ll all enjoy it.
