Saying good-bye to Costa Rica was definitely difficult. It was a great fun and extremely informative to visit this up-and-coming destination first-hand and be able to revel in the eco-tourism ideals. While the trip back was smooth with no hitches (oh, wait… the Atlanta airport did eat my cell phone!), it was a long day that did not get us back to Minneapolis until 10:30PM. Most of my travel companions went their seperate ways in Atlanta, heading to wherever they called home, but a few were with me for the duration. Almost all were excited to see family and loved ones, enjoy a relaxing weekend and head back to work on Monday, but not me. I have always loved airports, but not enough to be enthusiastically thrilled about having to return in approximately 12 hours; 4 flights down 3 more to go before my June adventures summed up! Bring it on Colorado and Moab, we’re onto the next one!
