I’m Christin, and I’m leaving for Costa Rica in just 3 short days.
I’ll be flying from Port Columbus airport in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. through Miami, Florida, U.S.A. into San Jose, Costa Rica. I have a 10-hour layover in Miami (I hope the bar is open early), so expect to hear more from me then!
I’m going to Costa Rica to study at Universidad Nacional in Heredia through a study abroad program administered by the Institute for Study Abroad. I’ll be spending 2 weeks in Monteverde for an orientation, and then I’ll head to Heredia to settle in with a Tico family for the rest of the semester.
While I’m in Costa Rica, my study abroad program sponsors weekend trips for all their students, so I will be traveling to many different parts of Costa Rica and reporting back to you. I’ve talked with other students on my program, and we all agree that extra travel (beyond program trips) is also in order.
My goal is to travel almost every weekend I’m in Costa Rica, and try to do it for around 1,000 USD (meals are already included in my tuition). Join me here to see how it goes!Filed under Christin Chitty, Costa Rica, Study Abroad, Travel | Comment (1)
