So sadly this will be my last entry.  I have recently returned to the US and find it so difficult to live in a world without Spanish.  I discovered so many new things about myself while living in Costa Rica for a month, and I definitely can’t wait to learn more during this school year.  I learned about the type of people I like and possibly don’t like, I learned about what kind of person I want to be, and I learned that patience is very important when traveling abroad.  Having patience with yourself to learn the culture and language, patience to finish your volunteer project when you feel homesick, patience with your agency because they may not get things right at your project all the time.  Although I know that I have a long way to grow, I am so glad that I was able to start my journey with Maximo Nivel.  Costa Rica was the perfect place for me, and I will miss her everyday.


Thank you so very much for following my journey, and please keep me in your prayers as I embark on my final year of graduate school.  On my next trip I will try to journal a little more frequently.


Until next time,



Me and my tico family
