Beauty.

In my last post before the long hiatus (here) I mentioned that two good friends would be visiting, during their time in Costa Rica we took weekend trips to two of the most naturally beautiful and truly breath-taking places I have visited: Drake Bay and Tortuguero National Park. The first one is a fairly undeveloped  beach location in the south Pacific of the country and the second one is an incredibly wild and lush jungle, with a tiny town in between a river and the Caribbean Sea. 

These trips, besides providing much needed bonding time, also reminded me of the diversity and incredible beauty of the world. There are many characteristics that we often appreciate, such as kindness or intelligence, and by comparison the word beauty can seem shallow. However, appreciating the immense beauty of our natural world is one of those things that brings me a sense of peace and reminds not to take the small (and big) beautiful things for granted.

What beautiful things inspire you to stop and wander at the world?

  5. Seriously incredible photos. I love that one of your tattoo. Sometimes, it's the littlest things that make me stop in my tracks and wonder how the world is as beautiful as it is.

  6. This is a beautiful post. I love the beach photos. I live by the sea and when I take walks along it. I just stare at the endless horizon. The sea and the sky move me. It never gets boring.
